    What cries should be unleashed or released
    A simple entanglement of truth and simplicity
    Or a tangled web of duplicity and complex issues
    The face of us that people see and relate to
    Is what binds and teathers, to success or demise

    The most intricate of things can mean little
    To few they make sense, the understanding of a riddle
    Puddles of liquid shimmer and refract what they see
    Reflections dont lie
    But sometimes they mislead

    It all depends on that which you want to see
    The simple truth or the complex lie
    Or who you even converse with, as it might be
    The complex truth and the simple lie
    Truth is alledged to be self serving and self evident

    You can only be mislead once, but mislead many
    Trust is gained, yet not through inheritance
    It grows on a fickle branch, that is indeed tender
    Truth and trust are a mesh together
    Sometimes you see through the lies because of it

    Cry out and your story will likely be heard
    Whatever your message, you pander to a crowd
    They dont hear what you tell them, or what you infer
    The crowd hears what they want to be heard
    To succeed you need to give them what they want

    People are saddened not by breaking a promise
    But because you made a promise you could not keep
    So what cries should be unleashed or released
    What you wish to tell, or that which they'll hear

    hard to believe i wrote and published that above text on april fools day :yeees:

    and ten days without something new? damn my standards are slipping
    this is a bump, im off to bed to go sleep now cause light has started appearing
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    oh well its serious bumpage this itme around, a month and roughly 10 days since i last wrote in here, but here is my latest contribution

    Short changing anomaly
    Of confusion and wires crossed with me
    Understanding leads to where it is
    The nervous sheath is a canopy
    To cover only those things you expect to be

    Illusion and the question of authenticty
    Are two fine lines, often crossed with glee
    Satisfactory is something which is good in most cases
    Yet it evaluates and satisfies
    And is happy with the illusion and his lie

    Misleading, needing, and trust gained to believe in
    Goes far enough to get what it wants
    Which often isnt the act or the crime
    It is to get away in due course and good time

    You are the misleader, the grand old deceiver
    The one we are all frightened of
    I am you, you are rare
    Are there anymore gentlemen, who ever dare to care

    Woke up this morning, well before the hour of 12
    Yet there was no living soul within the house
    No person around I could tell
    That i was awake, and living a dream
    Of having free time, yes it seemed obscene
    So much i could do, all the time i could waste
    And i must be doing it, with good haste

    Trampling around with one foot in a sock
    A slip on the bag, and you'll have a big knock
    Sharp it will be, a quick blow to the head
    Teach you from messing around when you get out of bed
    Preparing the night before is always a must
    Because of that fact you can always trust
    That you will be gone, with less than half the fuss

    Cornflakes in your coffee, and teacakes on your toast
    The confused ones are always
    The ones with food messed up the most
    Your day might have started, pre midday
    Began the day nice and early
    But with deleria prominantly on your mind
    One can only hope you find the time
    To get this hassle off your mind

    Working nights until the rise of daylight
    Walking home when its well past midnight
    earnig cash to put my bills right
    Im stressed, its something i dont like
    But ive got to do it around now
    But by a method of which i dont know how
    Should i try to put it right now?

    No pay without the work, no work without the pain
    Of treadmilling repeatedly, the same rigmarole again
    Turn up and clock in, and sign yoru soul away
    For the best part, of a mostly unbroken day
    Till you get home, late after midnight
    The sleep you entail would give you a good fright
    And keep you in bed where you're out of sight
    Till you start again the next night

    I've probably posted this sometime before. It's my tribute to the most kindest, caring person I've ever known.

    I remember asking myself, "Should I ring?"
    I really don't know why.
    I heard through a friend the breaking news.
    All I thought was, "Why?"
    We were never truly friendly.
    But in the end somehow,
    We put away our differences.
    We became friends, you and I.

    I remember sitting in the church.
    And watching you go by.
    I remember Ronan Keating's song.
    And how it made me cry.
    I can still see your face.
    Those bright shinning eyes.
    All those little memories.
    Are locked away inside.

    I'll always remember you my friend.
    You're in my heart and that'll never end.

    i think i might start doing new stuff for this
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    its all brand new stuff from the MrG,
    comments would be appreciated, and feel free to read back through this thread, to refresh and enlighten old and new minds alike

    here it be

    Lady C
    How did i trip over, and fall right into you
    And fall into that life of blissfull abandon
    And abandon all my thoughts, except those of you
    Was i spurned away, or was it just non realisation

    You never could see, what you sweet Lady C
    Caused me to think, or even to view
    Of those small minded thoughts, i had of you

    The dancing, the movement, the lights, the show
    Of musical tripping, and seeing you go
    Onto that dancefloor, and curve to the sound
    Then you and me just standing, and lounging around

    You took me to the town, linking our arms
    Smiling and giggling, such perfect and happy sounds
    The coffee was warm, as was the sun of the day
    It saddened me to leave, as we parted our ways

    Then i was warned, from a friend and a foe
    That your ex other half, might not be so "ex"
    You still showed considerate affection, even if slow
    But where from this odd moment, do we then go?

    With you and your friends, to the ball i did go
    Such fantastic memories, such fantastic times
    All the participants were dressed to the 9's
    But at one point i lost you, then i left

    Now you're back with him again, yet he is away
    While i came to visit, watch movies, and drink
    You thought it was your social group, of fantastic friends
    I really came to see you

    I didnt make it obvious, what i wanted from you
    But whatever i got, at least it was true.

    I've been writing a bit, too, which is unusual for me lately but there you go. They're pretty sketchy and lengthy (apologies to anyone who does get through them) but I might as well share... :)

    Not these ones; I had a small book of poems published a couple of years ago through the printing press of a friend [and ex-teacher] of mine. Was even reviewed by Mslexia (woo!) but since then my creative spurts have been very few and far between.

    Obviously I've only written these recently, too, so I've barely even plucked up the courage to show anybody... let alone start thinking about submitting them to magazines etc. I don't actually think they're anywhere near good enough to be honest but maybe I should think about it. I have been tempted to enter some poetry competitions before as the prizes can be pretty phenomenal (all about the prizes eh), I've just never had the guts...

    Me and You

    Me:
    That business with the ice machine, was possibly forgiveable
    And even that time that was possibly unmissable
    But those errors in the office, with the paperwork
    Really did help my boss, do anything but smirk

    You:
    With ten green bottles, sitting mouldy in the bin
    Hesitantly reluctant to admit it was a binge
    I was wanting to erase and forget, but only remembered
    That hot sunless night back in September

    Me:
    You came to help us all, and work hard you did
    You still threw ice cubes, as you took bottles from fridges
    Chatting with the customers, trying to build bridges
    Yet it all ends, every night, to begin again, when its light

    You:
    So wrong was that paperwork, that enabled them to pay me
    Or that simple verbal warning, mainly to shame me
    It was only September, and im soon to be gone
    Im still waiting for your admittance, that you were wrong

    Rock

    A moronic plant biologist could plant a thought
    In the mind of the platonic geologist
    To set roots deep, and rock his world
    Erode his facade, seen from the outside

    Hard on the outside, and solid within
    Against sweet nutured nature, soft inside
    Which could withstand that outside world
    Growth or the mere fact of consistancy

    Who would you let trust, or into your life
    Stable, exciting, would she be your wife
    That plant biologist that seems so kind
    For a geologist, she'd be a good find

    This one was written a few weeks ago.

    The Four Seasons

    The world is in a constant change
    At the start of the new year
    A silhouette of hope emerges
    The indignation held against the last season is fading away
    The bitter hand has released its control
    The melancholy that recently roamed the lands have disappeared
    It hides
    Reminding the people of earth
    That there is hope
    This happiness does not seize when the next season takes over the throne
    But there is a universal rule
    Nothing can last forever
    There is an end to everything
    As I stand in confusion
    I know for sure
    That no matter what season it is
    No matter what storm is raging against me
    No matter what burden is on my shoulder
    No matter what obstacle is blocking my way
    I know, that your eyes will always light up the darkest room
    My memories of you is the best medicine
    How could one forget?

    Here's a rhyming poem I jotted down very quickly.

    Bona fide


    Happiness is a difficult thing to describe
    as is its silhouette
    it is, just like you, bona fide.
    it'll surprise you, i bet

    it is not always a friendly face
    and not always available
    but it leaves behind an obscure trace
    which you need not enable

    you miss it when it's gone
    and you barely notice it when it's there
    try to stay strong
    even though happiness seems rare

    If Only

    If only you hadnt done that this time
    If only you had done that last time
    If only id remembered what you were like

    If only is something someone always says
    If only they wrote it, kept their dispair
    If only it didnt happen, if only, if only

    If only you had left me there, to reflect
    You hadnt come back, and collected me there
    Id have remembered to collect some hindsight
    From somewhere

    If only they sold it in immeasurable and large amounts
    Do they sell it by the kilo, or sell it by the pound
    Its something we all should want and wish to buy

    If only i could buy a big bag of "If only's"
    Id share them out and probably be the only
    One who managed to tell you so straight...

    If only you'd managed, not to be late

    K

    Even if everyone else allready does
    Its hard to make someone learn to like themselves
    Lying without realising, they hide their own truth
    That even if they have nobody
    They are still nicer than they say

    She wont admit to much, but there is a way in
    She is a flightless bird, yet she is not damaged
    She has just forgot how to, and doesnt realise she can fly
    She needs to learn to overcome and to soar

    To her she cannot be adored or cared for
    But she is very wrong, her thoughts are therefore
    Complex and deceiving, her heart and mind still bleeding
    That is why someone is there, to patch her up

    Wether broken, bruised, not interested or dismayed
    She and that person are always amazed
    When she shows her true colours, and soars in the sky
    All by making her smile, and looking into her eyes.

    I like that last one very very good, here is my noble attempt.

    Power Of 3

    Love....
    Love is waking and thinking of someone,
    That someone who's voice brightens your day.
    Clouds could hover it would not make a difference
    Just three words could change your day.

    Lazy days spent in the rain wind or shine
    Whatever happens I know your always be mine.
    Sitting contemplating wondering is it worth it?
    You remember the three words.

    One day the contemplating aches away
    It cuts deeper than an ocean, well maybe that's a lie
    You think of them smiling and that feeling returns
    You think you love them.

    Loves a horrible thing
    It hurts worse than any word or weapon
    You remember those three words
    Falling out of love is harder than falling in love.
