Random Poem:


My life, my pride
The anger eats me inside
No thoughts of pain
I have - pushed it all away
Can't remember what this means
No recall of what you say
Not a game I want to play
I've learned to forget anyway
I can't remember
What it is you did to me
You've twisted words to make it seem
Like there is no problem to see
I can't make this sit with me
...... Positively
There are times when I lose routine
A convenience to your faults
Should you slip, just give it time
Redemption is just peace of mind-------
Instead of searching for the you and I
Look inside and ask yourself "why?"
Postulate, be sure you can please
The doer of the deed added fictionally
Now you speak of mutual trust
Your speech received with lack of lust
Soiled innocence through self righteousness
Now presented to apathy
