    Do you understand?

    Post by poetryinmotion on August 25th 2011, 12:33 am

    Why do you cry

    Tears run down, a river of memories
    Flowing from one reason to the next
    It's all he said she said in this world
    Hearts break, people leave, nothing's set in stone
    And so, the dam breaks

    Why do you smile

    Lips curved up in joy, yet eyes full of pain
    A mask to ward off comfort, keep the kindness at bay
    For the world is cruel, sticks and stones and words
    Believe me to be happy
    And so, save me your time

    Why do you hurt

    Gasps and cries and choking
    On a breath that will never come to exist
    Empty, lonely holes retched out of a soul
    Who's still learning the cost of being free
    And so, old wounds bleed

    Why do you laugh

    Peals of sharp noise they are
    Reviewing what lies ahead, what's already passed
    Can we go any further, can we retrace our path? No.
    Hearts break. People leave. Nothing's set in stone.
    I already know.
    And so, you do not understand.
    How could you understand?

    XD That was actually REALLY cool!
    And I did enjoy your imagery and especially the first big stanza about crying.
    Everything seemed to make sense~

    I cry because I'm happy.

    A life blessed by sunshine
    A soul watered by rain
    There can be no possible pain
    When I'm so protected
    By all those around me.

    I smile because I'm content.

    I wear no mask
    I shoulder no lie
    There's nothing to hide
    When I'm so surrounded
    By all these friends

    I hurt because I'm human.

    My wounds pour blood
    My eyes pour tears
    There's nothing to fear
    When I've band-aids and comfort
    From all those around me

    I laugh because I'm finished.

    It's fine trusting their words
    It's fine letting them be
    There's nothing to see
    When I've all the joy in the world
    Without knowing the truth.

    I do not understand.
    Why do you understand?

    It's "Why do you] understand"

    <3 Your last sentence.

    What is happiness?

    To know the sting of cruel hate
    Feel the gazes of those
    Who would just as quickly leave
    Turn their backs, or offer a hand
    Friends are fleeting
    You've not known grief.

    What is truth?

    Lies aren't so easy to shake
    We have all bitten our tongues
    Let the bloody words, so base
    Color the mask of acceptance
    Truth is life, but also its hardships
    You're no exception in this case.

    What is pain?

    So many labels, so little time
    Skinned knees, forgotten time
    Comfort only houses denial
    Is it good or evil, this humanity
    That murders its brothers
    You've not known these trials.

    What is trust?

    Handing the reins over
    Letting "friends" decide your fate
    They feed your ignorance
    As your heart opens to scrutiny
    You've been blind - not known hate.

    Why?

    Why do we kill till extinction
    Its only natural
    Why does death take the young
    Its only natural
    Why do our calls for justice
    For hope, for change
    Fall only on deaf ears - black souls
    Its only natural

    This charade you live
    Where struggle is a distant nightmare
    Clawing its way into joyous existance
    Is not natural. You've fallen victim
    To those black hearts, dark minds
    I'm part of the resistance

    This is why I know
    And why you must find out.

    Happiness is here.

    Music on an autumn day
    Spring breezes caressing the hair
    Of those willing to dance with summer.

    No wicked winter to ruin the joy
    Of this utopia.
    My utopia.

    Truth is there.

    What's the difference between pure truth
    And 'corrupted' lies?
    To those who've lived lies, none.

    If my 'evil' lies can bring joy
    I've no wish for truth.
    No one here wishes for truth.

    Pain is trust.

    Close your eyes.
    And fall.
    Trust that they'll catch you.

    Will they catch you?
    To those who've lived lies,
    Yes.

    And you and I
    We've fallen for so long
    Why resist?

    We're bound to break
    Once we hit the ground.
    So, keep falling with me.

    I haven't found out.
    You haven't found out.
    Keep dreaming with me.

    There's no need to understand to be happy.


    (GAH THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HAPPY. BUT I COULDN'T MAKE IT SOUND HAPPY NO MATTER WHAT I TRIED. )

    (Ah well, your move!)
