It's been a while, but here we go. Let us not let the time escape us. If you wish to see my older poems, here's a link.

http://forums.saber-...pic=9931&page=1

You'd have to sort through my art and whatnot, sorry.

 

"Burning World"

02-11-14

 

I want to watch,

The world burn.

To leave a,

Scorched Earth behind...

 

This world is so,

Far gone...

So much is corrupted.

 

Maybe it's,

Just me, but

It seems,

Many feel the same...

 

Maybe I'm just,

So confused.

Maybe I'm just,

Being stupid...

 

Whatever it may be,

I think the world,

Has been given,

Far too many chances...

 

Maybe the world can,

Change...

Maybe it can pull,

a 180.

 

I guess that,

The first young plant,

Can poke it's,

Budding head out of the ground...

 

Until then,

I'll hold my breath..

I'll take my hand off,

The handle...

 

I want to watch,

The world burn...

To leave a,

Scorched Earth behind...

Here's something different, a limerick!

 

"The Shed"

02-12-14

 

A man was in a shed,

A bullet went through his head.

Falling to the ground,

His heart did not pound.

The man lay dead and bleed.

Another poem!

 

"Tower"

02-12-14

 

Life is a storm of constant confusion,

It can be a great time or a worst nightmare.

 

One day a tower was built.

It was to be a grand tower.

Years upon years would be spent,

To complete it.

 

The tower throughout its construction,

Weathered many storms.

It stood strong, but

Not without losing a piece of itself.

 

Once the tower fell,

Blown from its base,

It crumpled to the ground.

The tower would continue to be built.

 

This tower would not stop,

It would grow to great heights, but

Only if it is allowed to.

The tower still stands, it is still being constructed.

"Power Is"

02-12-14

 

Power is...

Knowing you've won before the battle has begun.

It is the crunching of bones beneath your threads...

When you see a sea of red, that is power.

When the world is nothing, but ash, you've obtained power...

It is watching the world burn, leaving only a scorched Earth behind.

Power is walking through the ruins of your enemies' homes.

It is like a wildfire, destroying all in its path.

It is as though a tornado, blowing away everything in its wake.

When a mirror shatters and each piece is a broken dream, you have achieved power.

Power is the end of all things...

Here's an unfinished and untitled poem. Maybe I'll finish it.

 

"???"

??/??/??

 

Why, why do you even care?

You weren't even there.

Why, why should you care?

It's as though if you weren't even there...

 

Tell me why!

You didn't care before,

Why now?

Tell me!

 

When I needed you most,

You had forsaken me!

Do you even care?

Are you really there?

 

When I cried for you!

Your voice wasn't there to soothe!

Where were you?

Where were you?

 

Tell me if you want to see this finished.

Crawling
06-06-14

Once again,
You’re crawling.
Even after,
So much pain…

I don’t understand,
Heck, I even laugh.
Once again,
You’re crawling…

You were hurt,
Yet you crawl back,
To the one,
Who hurt you…..

When I was the one,
Who helped you!
But once again,
You’re crawling!

I don’t understand!
If he said he liked you,
Yet didn’t act like he did,
Doesn’t deserve you!

Yet, you’re crawling,
Back to him!?
Why?
What’s the point?

When I’ve been there,\
For three years!
Three years I’ve cared!
Three years I’ve waited!
Three years I’ve loved!

Yet again,
You’re crawling!
Back to the one,
Who deserted you!

This may sound cruel,
But maybe you,
Deserve,
It!

How could you be,
So blind?
Or,
So heartless?

I took a chance,
Yet it was a joke?
Do you even know?
Not to play with someone’s heart like that?

Yet once again,
You’re crawling!
You don’t say something like that as a joke!
I told you my real feelings!

You’ve stabbed me in my heart,
Twice!
Yet I still continue to care,
I still continue to wait…

I’m probably just wasting time,
But no matter what you do,
I still care.
I always care…

Yet once again,
You’re crawling.
For a guy,
Who doesn’t even care…

Born to Die
06-06-14

I was born,
Choking to death,
My body blue,
Close to death.

Maybe this is a sign.
Maybe I was supposed to die…
For all I seem is,
A waste of human skin…

My brother,
The model young man.
Strong, friendly, and religious.
My parents are so proud!

Then there’s me.
The husk of a boy.
Weak, recluse, and non-believing.
What a failure…

I think about this often,
Maybe I was supposed to die.
Everyone would be better off,
Because I was born to die…

Myself
06-06-14

Why do you care?
This is my life!
What about me,
Disgusts you so?

I’m just myself.
You, your generic, boring self.
I call myself unique.
You call yourself normal.

You fool,
There is no such thing as normal.
Yet you insist so,
I tend to laugh at you.

You call me; strange, odd,
Weird, messed up, terrible,
Freak, retard, loser, demon,
Evil, crazy, insane, psyco…

I may seem unscathed,
But truly,
On the inside,
They cut deep…

Why can’t you accept me,
For who I am?
I’m no poster boy,
And all of them are lies.

Why can’t you understand,
That I’m different?
Maybe it occurred to you,
I DON’T want to be YOU!

But, you’re too feebleminded.
I pity you.
Why not try thinking…
For yourself?

You push me around,
Like a toy.
Too bad that you don’t know,
I’m a ticking time bomb.

I can explode at any time,
So watch your back,
Or a pencil might,
End up in your skin…

Maybe I’m different,
Because I realized,
The standards of the world,
Are impossible.

But you,
You’re too stupid…
And brainwashed,
To know.

Why not leave me,
Alone?
And let me…
Be myself!

Love
06-07-14

Why do I still write,
About love?
When I don’t even,
Believe in it?

Maybe, because it’s so easy…
Maybe, it gives me reason to write…
Maybe, it lets me express myself…
Maybe, it gives me hope…

To be honest,
I don’t know,
I find it cliché,
And overrated, but…

I guess it gives me hope,
I mean that’s really all,
I’ve got,
Left…

In the Shadows
06-08-14

You do not hear me,
You do not see me,
You do not know me,
For I am in the shadows

But why would you?
I’m so useless,
Just a piece of garbage,
Blowing in the wind…

No direction,
No path,
Just blowing,
In the wind…

In the shadows,
It is quiet,
For none can speak or wish not to,
We are volunteer mutes…

We have much to say,
But none to listen…
Why waste our breath?
For we’re just a waste of space…

In the shadows,
It is darkness…
For we close our eyes and wish for light.
We sew our eyes, to shut out the looks…

We turn away,
For we are ashamed…
We are tainted,
Our beauty is not divine, for we are scarred…

In the shadows,
There is stupidity,
Not that we lack intelligence,
But that none know us…

Easily forgotten and overlooked,
Our minds are full of creativity…
Yet we are forsaken,
Our ideas creative, but not attractive…

You do not hear me,
You do not see me,
You do not know me,
For I am in the shadows…

The Past
06-08-14

Sometimes life gets rough,
And we do things we’re ashamed of…
Each one of us is a diamond in the rough,
For what we’ve done in the past…

This shame builds,
It grows like a cancer,
It sets in our hearts,
Our hearts grow heavy…

I’m ashamed,
I’m to blame,
What have I done?
I don’t want to think about it!

I want to change,
Erase the words,
Burn the page,
Leave no trace of it!

How do I undo what’s done?
How do I overcome?
How can I change the past?
I want to put this shame away!

This pain,
This shame,
Is too much…
I just want to change!

How could I change so?
How could I become what I’ve become?
Why’d I let it get the best of me?
My heart bleeds from it!

I’m ashamed,
I’m to blame,
What have I done?
I don’t want to think about it!

I want to change,
Erase the words,
Burn the page,
Leave no trace of it!

How do I undo what’s done?
How do I overcome?
How can I change the past?
I want to put this shame away!

Growing Old
06-08-14

A single day passes without seeing you,
It hurts…
No matter that you don’t care about me,
Seeing you is good enough…

I want to be with you,
I want to be the one whose shoulder you cry on,
I want to hold you close,
I want to be dear to you…

A thousand years,
Isn’t long enough,
Especially with you,
Not long at all…

Growing old with you,
Would be a dream.
I want to be there,
Till the end.

I want to hold you,
In my arms,
At your final moments,
I want to to be looking in your eyes as you draw your last breath…

No matter when,
Just as long,
That I’m with you,
At the end…

No one should die alone,
And I’ll make sure that you don’t,
I’ll be there when you do,
With you in my arms…

I want a thousand years to pass,
With you by my side.
No matter the season,
I’ll be there…

I shall not hide,
When you die…
Holding you close,
In my arms, looking in your eyes…

I want to hold you,
In my arms,
At your final moments,
I want to be looking in your eyes as you draw your last breath…

06-09-14

If you’re going insane,
Let me help.
Hear my voice,
Just listen.

If it’s not working,
If you can’t gain control,
Just take it out on me,
For the sake of you!

Hit me if you need to!
Scream if it helps!
Unleash it on me!
For the sake of you!

Don’t worry about me,
I don’t mind.
I can’t be anymore broken anyway…
For the sake of you!

If it’s not working,
If you can’t gain control,
Just take it out on me,
For the sake of you!

Break me if you have to!
Yell if it helps!
Just let it go!
For the sake of you!

Don’t give up,
Don’t throw it all away,
It’s not worth it,
It’s not over…

If you’re going insane,
Let me help.
Hear my voice,
Just listen…

Devastate me if you need!
Shout in my face!
Snap on me!
For the sake of you!


I don't know why I even bother posting this stuff, it's just going to go unread...Heck why do I still write this garbage?

Outside Looking In
06-09-14

Out in the cold,
I look through the window.
I am,
Outside looking in…

Such happiness,
A warm hearth,
So many smiles,
Everyone so happy…

They laugh for a while, till tears draw from their eyes…
They talk and they listen,
They are so happy.
Oh, so happy…

They sing beautifully,
They dance with such grace,
To perfect music,
So in rhythm, so in sync…

They all belong,
They all have a place,
But, most importantly,
They’ve got another…

Here I am freezing,
My blood turning to ice,
The wind cutting my face,
Turning my body numb…

I yearn for such company,
For such friendship,
For such company,
For such love…

It kills me every time,
It causes great pain,
It evokes such loneliness,
It makes me cry…

These tears sting,
And freeze to my face.
I’m just a lonely man,
With no one to accompany me…

Out in the cold,
I look through the window.
I am,
Outside looking in…

Fade Away
06-09-14

Take one last long look,
I might just disappear.
This may be the last you see of me,
As I fade away…

It’s been so long,
Since I’ve felt love,
Appreciated,
Wanted…

I walk these halls alone,
Each door slams as I pass,
I just stop,
And sit in the shadows…

Fall to the ground,
Bury my head,
And I just cry,
Let these tears flow…

Maybe it’ll get better…
Ha! You know it won’t!
Someone loves me…
Stop! You know it’s a lie!

Why do I still try?
I’m unheard,
I’m unseen,
I’m unknown…

Why do I still write?
These signs go unread!
These warnings go,
Unheeded…

Just slip away quickly,
While no one cares…
I don’t want tears shed for me,
They’ll be fake and forgotten…

Don’t bury me in a cemetery,
Dump me at the landfill, I’m just garbage…
Don’t give me a headstone,
Leave it unmarked, I’ll just be forgotten…

Take one last long look,
I might just disappear…
This may be the last you see of me,
As I fade away…

At Night
06-09-14

At night,
When I lay in bed,
I cry and
Die inside…

When all is quiet,
And I can only think,
All the pain, hate, and sadness,
Manifest…

Why always at night?
Why when I’m alone?
I want to be seen crying,
I want some to ask, “What’s wrong?”

I want someone to know my,
Pain and sadness…
I want to be,
Comforted…

At night,
When I lay in bed,
I cry and,
Die inside…


Again, why do I still write? No one cares...

I really liked "Outside Looking In", but Fade Away is prolly close second.

Anyway, I like all your poetry, I just haven't been commenting, but I do read it. Keep it up!

Yo,

Sorry I haven't checked in for a while. I think these would make Edgar cry. Pretty well-put together though. I have sometimes felt this way, but most of the time I'm worried about making others feel alone, I'm kind of silent like that. Maybe it's because I'm an introverte.
Keep up the good, albeit sad work. I still think it would be cool to see you work with a meter one of these times.

It's fine, my poetry isn't that good. Make Edgar cry, I have a hard time believing that, but thank you. Edgar Allen Poe is my favorite poet and got me into it. You know, I've always had this sadness deep within, that very few know, it seems those that try to make everyone else happy are the ones truly hurting. It's gotten pretty easy putting on a mask during the day, but once night begins and I'm alone, everything comes like a tidal wave. I too am silent, but I try to be caring. I've been able to get meters down, I just don't get them...

An old one lost in an old sketchbook...Written on the plane to the Philippines...

Returning Soldier
11/26/12

Here I am, returning,
Holding a gym bag,
Walking down the terminal,
The tour is done…

Thinking about,
What I’ve done,
What I’ve seen,
You wouldn’t believe,
You wouldn’t know…

Walking around town,
No one understands.
No respect,
They will never know…

I just want to,
Educate them,
Show them,
Hurt them…

I can’t sleep,
I’m growing restless…
All I see is faces,
Staring at me,
Burned into my memory!

No respect!
No knowledge!
They don’t know,
They don’t understand!

Punching the wall!
Drowning myself in alcohol,
I just want to forget!
But, I can’t! I can’t…

Everyone seems to,
Hate me!
Despise me!
Push me away!

I don’t understand…
They don’t know,
I wish they would!
So, they’d shut up!

I killed for them!
I laid down my life,
For what?
For this garbage? For this disrespect?

Alcohol is my friend,
My health is leaving…
Alcohol is my enemy,
Killing me slowly…

Keep trying,
Keep crying…
Can’t seem to forget but,
I don’t want to!

On my knees,
Praying to God!
Trying to return,
To the path…
The pathway to heaven!

How can I be forgiven?
I’ve changed so much!
I regret so much…
But I don’t really know…

This is the last straw!
I’m mending these habits.
Washing the blood off me.
Becoming myself again.

I am the Returning Soldier,
Warrior for you,
For country, for honor,
For home, for family…

Two poems today...The first one is not about me...

Shaken Asunder
06-12-14

A tense situation,
One of life or death.
He’s in my sight,
I pull the trigger.

Powder burns,
Bullets fly,
Blood falls,
A body collapses…

As I walk away,
They look at me,
With,
Hate, disgust, fear…

I look away but,
The looks burn,
Deep into my,
Mind…

Don’t look at me,
Like that!
You don’t know!
You don’t understand!

You may cry,
You may scream,
You may sob,
On the outside…

But, inside,
I’m violated!
I just killed a man,
I’m shaken asunder!

You may have lost,
Someone dear but,
I lost a,
Part of me!

Every man,
I send to the grave,
A part of me,
Goes with them!

You weren’t the one,
Who pulled the trigger,
Who killed a man,
Who’s shaken asunder!

But the second...Is about me.

I Want to Die
06-12-14

I don’t care,
I don’t care,
Anymore!
Anymore…

All this pain,
Anger, and
Sadness,
Manifest!

All these,
Signs and,
Warnings,
Go unnoticed…

How could,
You not notice?
All these signs,
And warnings?

I know it’s,
Scary and,
Dark,
But what about me?

Don’t brush this aside.
Don’t push me away.
This is about a human life!
My life…

Weren’t the poems,
Enough?
Don’t ignore the dark ones!
That’s how I feel!

You would have known,
You should have known!
Most don’t realize or,
Don’t want to…

How could you brush me aside?
Why’d you forget about me?
This is about a human life,
My life!

Didn’t you hear my sobs?
Didn’t you notice my reddened eyes?
Didn’t you notice my darker side?
How could you not see past my mask?

Didn’t you realize?
Was my somber words not enough?
Was my pleading looks not enough?
How could you not see the pain in my eyes?

Were my poems not enough?
I thought I clearly expressed myself,
I guess not…
Look at ‘Fade Away’; it’s a DEAD giveaway…

I’m tired of the loneliness.
I’m tired of the sadness.
I’m tired of the tears.
I’m tired of the self-hate.

I just want to end it all,
I really do.
I just want,
I want to die…

After all I’ve done for others,
This is how I’m rewarded?
Loneliness? Pain?
Sadness?

All the hearts I fixed,
All those I helped,
None said thank you,
None asked how I truly felt…

All those who said they’ll be there,
Disappeared…
All empty promises,
Why’d I believe?

I may be overreacting,
I may be young,
I may be stupid,
I may be dramatic,

But when was the last time,
You asked how I truly felt?
I was hugged?
I was told I was loved?

I can’t even remember…
It’s been too long,
Far too long..
I want to die.

It seems too late for me,
The end is near.
I’m going to fade away…
For I want to die.

Look me in the eyes,
This pain burns like hellfire,
It sets my soul ablaze,
It burns like a thousand suns…

If you care now,
It may be too late,
I’ve given so many signs,
They all went unread…

Why bother writing this?
As soon as it’s read,
It’ll be forgotten.
Just like me…

Remember this day,
Remember this time,
Remember the opportunity,
You had to save a life…

I.
Want.
To.
DIE!

Shadow Angel Returns
06-18-14

Cloth of shadows,
Wings of an angel,
Scythe of the cursed,
Chains of the oppressed…

I am the shepherd of souls,
I am the retriever of the dead,
I am the bringer of fate,
I am the Shadow Angel.

I cut a hole into your dimension,
I descend from my realm.
Your world darkness and,
Trembles…

I come for the fallen,
The dying I desire.
I will find all,
None left behind.

Do not fear me,
Lest you hold an evil sin,
A dark secret,
An inner darkness…

Surrender your souls to me!
If I deem it fit…
I am your judge,
Possibly your executioner…

A darkened soul is sinful,
Down to Hell.
A white soul is pure,
Ascend to Heaven.

Many fear me,
For I am their end…
But some,
Welcome me…

Babies and those not yet born,
Never experienced the joys of the world…
Cradled in my arm,
I fly to Heaven.

Those In the Shadows,
Wishing to Fade Away,
The Outside Looking In,
And those who say, ‘I Want to Die'…

Led to Heaven,
They do not deserve such,
Hate, pain, and,
Loneliness…

The Wounded,
Forged by Blood,
Returning Soldiers,
Are not forgotten…

They fought for you,
They killed for you,
They DIED for YOU!
Are guided to light.

None are forgotten,
None are overlooked,
I am the Watching Eye,
The Unblinking Watcher…

Take my hand,
Do not fear,
I am your guide,
I am your light in the darkness…

Cloth of shadows,
Wings of an angel,
Scythe of the cursed,
Chains of the oppressed…

I am the shepherd of souls,
I am the retriever of the dead,
I am the bringer of fate,
I am the Shadow Angel

Shadow of Myself
06/29/14

Looking back,
To what I was…
I realize, I’m a,
Shadow of myself…

No longer the same,
Much has changed…
I cannot say,
I like what I’ve become…

I’m so different,
I’m not as happy,
The sun has faded,
Eternal night has taken its place…

When the sun has died and,
Its warm glows no longer dance on my face,
It’s hard to be happy,
When only shadows live.

It seems I no longer have,
Peace of mind.
These demons,
Won’t get out of my head…

They torment me!
Bringing up past mistakes,
My failures brought front and center.
My darkness growing…

The light once within me,
Is fading…
It’s warmth leaving,
It’s comfort faltering…

This desolate place,
I call my soul.
The shadows gather,
The chains tighten…

As I stand chained,
With these memories…
I realize, I’m a,
Shadow of myself…

Omnius mille passus expeditio, omnis fossa bellum.

To Be a Hero
07-04-14

I’ve been alive,
For a little bit,
I’ve come to hate the question,
Who’s your hero?

For a long time,
I didn’t answer.
I didn’t have one,
I never really cared…

As I grew older,
I was finally able to answer.
I couldn’t believe,
I didn’t realize sooner…

As the love of the military,
Veterans, and,
My grandfather grew,
I realized…

To be a hero,
You must do the best for the greater good,
You must have courage, honor,
But most importantly, willing to sacrifice yourself…

Is there nothing greater,
Than dying on the battlefield?
To lay down your life,
For those you love?

You don’t have to die,
But you must be willing to.
It’s better to make your enemy die for his for country,
And for you to live for yours.

To be a hero,
First you must be ordinary,
Any average person and,
Do something extraordinary.

At war, many tales are forgotten,
Many things are lost but,
In the horror of war,
Good things can come to light…

I know how to answer,
I have an answer…
I know what it means,
To be a hero.

I look to,
My grandpa,
My great-uncles,
My family…

I’ve watched them,
Their lives slowly fading,
Their memories also,
What they had done…

Slowly being forgotten,
Their deeds,
Slowly fading,
From memory…

This day,
You will be honored…
You,
And all your brothers-in-arms…

I cannot stress enough,
How dear you are to me,
For you know how,
To be a hero…

Omnius mille passus expeditio, omnis fossa bellum.

Dear Child
07-04-14



Dear child,

So small and helpless,

So young and full of life,

Come close and listen…



Be calm and do not move,

Open your ears to what I have to say,

Calm thy mind to remember my wisdom,

Open your chest and take it to heart…



As a child,

Life will be glorious,

Not a care in the world,

The world is your plaything.



You may fall and bleed,

Do not fear,

Love is always near,

The pain will leave…



As you grow older,

Life gets worse.

But, not as bad,

That is for later…



As a teenager,

Life will be a balance,

You’ll be concerned about everything,

And the opposite gender so appealing…



You will rebel, you will fight,

You will fall for another,

You will experience heartbreak,

It will last a while…



You’ll realize the world,

Is dark, dangerous, corrupt…

The sun will fade,

And love questioned…



You will realize,

The world is not yours,

It never was,

It never will…



As an adult,

You will come to hate life,

You will come to hate work,

You will come to hate yourself…



It is not all horror,

You will find someone to share your love with,

Your blood will mix with theirs,

Children will come to fruition…



You will learn patience, forgiveness,

If not, you are doomed…

Learn early,

So you may not experience despair…



Now child,

Do not be saddened,

Life is not terrible always,

There will be days of a perfect sun…



There will be eternal nights,

Now child, do not despair…

Live life to the fullest,

Treat every day as your last…



Dear child,

So small and helpless,

So young and full of life,

Come close and listen…

Omnius mille passus expeditio, omnis fossa bellum.

To Be Human
07-05-14

Come close,
Stranger.
Come close and,
Listen well…

You wish to know,
What it means,
To be human…
Sit down and stay a while.

To be human,
Is to be unique,
Not one, the same as another,
We are as if snowflakes…

We all fall from the heavens,
We hit the ground in a strange place,
We stick for a while, while being joined by others,
Then, we slowly melt away…

Come back,
Stranger.
Sit, I’m not done,
There is so much more…

To be human,
Is to believe,
When,
There is no reason…

To be human,
Is to have faith,
When,
There is nothing set in stone…

To be human,
Is to be curious,
Even when,
You thought you knew it all…

To be human,
Is to care,
Even when,
You were never cared for…

To be human,
Is to make mistakes,
No matter,
The age or wisdom…

To be human,
Is to be courageous,
When,
Fear grips your heart…

To be human,
Is to hope,
Even when,
There is no reason to…

To be human,
Is to continue on,
Even when,
You’ve been stopped a thousand times…

To be human,
Is to believe in yourself,
When,
No one else did…

To be human,
Is to love,
Even when,
Your heart no longer beats…

To be human,
Is to create,
Even when,
All has already been made…

To be human,
Is to speak,
Even when,
You’ve been silenced…

To be human,
Is to preserve,
Even when,
You’ve been cut a thousand times…

To be human,
Is to dream,
Even when,
You know it’s not true nor going to happen…

To be human,
Is to wish,
Even when,
It won’t come true…

To be human,
Is to explore,
Even when,
The map has been completed…

To be human,
Is to discover,
When,
All has already been discovered…

To be human,
Is to feel,
Even when,
You’ve gone through mind numbing pain…

To be human,
Is to overcome,
Even when,
You stand alone…

To be human,
Is to fight,
Even when,
There’s nothing left…

That is what,
It means,
To be human,
Stranger…


To those reading (if any), leave some feedback. A comment, I'd take any day.
