Its Nice

I guess everything I did or do is not good enough for you,
This Mr Nice guy is not working out to your standards isn't it true.
What are you asking for from me, would you like the beast unleashed,
like it was before I turned into an angel that was kissed? 

You have been asking for it, for a long time now,
the beast wants to tear out of my skin and make you drown. 
Kill you and devour you piece by piece,
than spit you out into hell where you'll burn like the trees. 

What haven't I given you that you have treated me this way,
I show you live and care but you burned my heart like a pile of hay. 
So for my final words, be cautious of the daemon YOU have unleashed,
Cause one wrong move and your body will be incomplete.

Villanelle: The lesson cannot just be one life's lost

Villanelle : The lesson cannot just be one life’s lost

     for Trayvon Martin’s parents

The lesson cannot just be one life’s lost
   When all around daily thousands are crushed
Small lives remind us of big causes most

Who followed whom and for what purpose just
   The enigma’s always formed well-brushed
The lesson cannot just be one life’s lost

Generations march step by step foremost
   To repeal Tyrant Laws meanly enmeshed
Small lives remind us of big causes most

Is there such a thing as a real black ghost   
   Would it have in its hands a black head dashed
The lesson cannot just be one life’s lost

Would those who cling most to this world make boast
   That the next honour their desires cherished
Small lives remind us of big causes most

Can our lives mean as much as those lost
   In great battles of the minds Space unleashed
The lesson cannot just be one life’s lost
Small lives remind us of big causes most

You Let Me Sit and Cry

I still wonder your reply
I’ve been waiting so patiently
And yet you let me sit and cry  

I’m always so shy 
Yet I opened my heart for you 
And I still wonder your reply

I have feelings for you, and I don’t wonder why
You know how I feel 
And yet you let me sit and cry  

I looked you in the eye
And told you my secrete  
And I still wonder your reply

My heart was so broken, I thought I might die
You were there the whole time 
And yet you let me sit and cry

I always wished that you were mine
Until now you never knew
And I still wonder your reply
And yet you let me sit and cry
