Not exactly poetry, but 2 recent song lyrics
#1
1. CONFIDENT EVENING

Been drinking a lot of coffee today
Been smoking a lot of cigarettes
Been doing a lot of thinking today
To clear up this mess

Leaving them all behind now
Leaving them without my feelings
Leaving them all with themselves now
To prepare the soil for new seedlings

They are leaving, i will stay
Because i made up my mind today
Made up my mind today, hey!
If they stay, then i will be leaving
Morning uncertainty turns into confident evening
Confident evening, hey!

Wondering if you are still there
Wondering where am i?
Wondering if i am still there
Where i left myself behind

Expecting to receive everything
Expecting to be left with nothing at all
Expecting to give you everything
Where i firmly stand to break your fall

They are leaving, i will stay
Because i made up my mind today
Made up my mind today, hey!
If they stay, then i will be leaving
Morning uncertainty turns into confident evening
Confident evening, hey!
Confident evening, hey, hey, yeah!

2. REMAIN THE SAME 

I don't want to think about the past
It has gone away, it didn't last
Future only makes me uncertain
As it's empty promises reveal behind the curtain
The present time is too near
Because i am real only here

I don't want to change myself in vain
Everything changes, and change brings pain
I don't want to remain the same
Because then i lose when everything is a game
I don't want to remain the same
I don't want to remain the same

My heart tells me about love
The days, the nights and the skies above
My mind tells me about madness
Leaves me wondering why i find comfort in sadness
My soul tells me about Goddesses and Gods
I tell them i am too faulty and get replied with nods

I don't want to change myself in vain
Everything changes, and change brings pain
I don't want to remain the same
Because then i lose when everything is a game
I don't want to remain the same
I don't want to remain the same

@"Wallfire"  Thank you for the song link, i loved it! I need to listen to it a couple of more times to get really into it. Always the same thing with me and interesting songs, i need multiple times of listening through.

@Mystic Wanderer  That would be awesome! However, i am not musical at all tinyangry But i would like to be. There was a time when i really tried to learn to sing, but no... It sounds like a crow is in a serious distress somewhere. And i can't play any instruments, maybe that would be possible to learn but i don't have enough patience and attention span. Heck, i can't even dance at all. So i write.

Okay since this forum is for poetry, i tried to write something else than songs.


I AM


I am the cause
I am the effect
The loving care and the neglect
I am the moth
I am the flame
The guilty one, and not the one to blame

I am the servant
I am the majesty
The true representation and the travesty
I am the sword
I am the shield
The autumn harvester and the field

I am.

Reading them I am drawn..
Put to music they would well be compelling in terms of songs. They are of a different path than the usual. The artist I picture putting these to music would be none other than...

There is some complexity to your lyrics. For instance ...

JUST AS BAD

They used to tell me that i always need a reason
But i never needed one
Now that i have a reason
I still don't need it to be done

They say that a gambler never counts his money
But i never had any
Now that i have cans of poison, honey
What matters anymore is: how many?

I want to fight all the fighters
Kill all the killers
Murder all the murderers
So i am left alone, just as bad as they were
Just as bad as they were
But my mind is too kind and i can't kill the fact that i care
Just as bad as they were
Just as bad as they were

They treat me depending on my diagnose
But i never needed one
Now that i have all diagnoses
I still want to be met as someone

They say that darkness is deepest just before the dawn, dear
But i never wanted a sunrise
Now that darkness has lasted through this year
Is it enough for the evil ones suffice?

I want to fight all the fighters
Kill all the killers
Murder all the murderers
So i am left alone, just as bad as they were
Just as bad as they were
But my mind is too kind and i can't kill the fact that i care
Just as bad as they were
Just as bad as they were

As bad as they were, yeah!

I understand how hard it is express ones self in a foreign language, so you are doing well

I am going to fly
But without wings
That means walking

I am going to shout
But my throat is sore
That means talking

I am going to love
But my zeal is gone
That means just saying "hi"

I am going to keep you here
But my words get blurred along the way
That means just saying "goodbye"

I am one of God's errors

Rap this time...

I used to be born yesterday, a shorty
Wings clean, with aspiration, sporty.
Forty year old now with nothing to show for it
This shit has gone too far but still i spit
I split skulls with verbal capability
My ability is something you can't comprehend
I am real, while you just pretend
I fell in love with beer, like Gollum with the ring
But the thing is, not gonna go out without wrinkles
On my face, on my brains, fulfilling my days and my veins

People shoot each other, and i have thought about it
But why bother to get involved with that shit
If i wanna kill people, gonna start with myself
Because you play with cards you are dealt
Someone else always pulls from the sleeve the ace
Look at me, fake smile on my face, drunk all days
Gays? nothing about to say about those people
I am not indoctrinated sheeple
No one dictates my values
No one pays my dues but me
Rogue nation, the place to be

Rogue nation, Rogue nation
Keep your patience
It is a strange bunch
But they eat haters for lunch
Haters for lunch, yeah.

There is a boy in a dress
This i stress, he is not a mess when art is here
Got ninurta by your side? nothing to fear
Mystic Wanderer keeps digging real news
R-N the finest crew of all crews
Omegalogos keeps moderating
Always fair, never hating
But Guohua runs the place
Tomorrows, yesterdays, todays
No ways to make this netsite fall
Because who u gonna call?
We are equal here, no one needs to crawl

Rogue nation, Rogue nation
Keep your patience
It is a strange bunch
But they eat haters for lunch
Haters for lunch, yeah.

Hi. Been having some weed and beer here and decided to write:

THE BAD (WAS FOR THE BETTER)

When i needed you the most
You turned your back on me
After years of walking together
You walked away from me
Away from me, yeah!

Can't you see, can't you see, i was always the weaker one
Can't you be, can't you be, the one you were before
But it was only an illusion, and now it is done
Time to settle the score
This loss of contact used to feel bad
But it was for the better, for the better, yeah!
Because sometimes the bad is for the better!

Solid foundation to build on
But i also did my mistakes
So it crumbled down
Why fix anything, when everything breaks?
Everything breaks, yeah!

Can't you see, can't you see, i was always the weaker one
Can't you be, can't you be, the one you were before
But it was only an illusion, and now it is done
Time to settle the score
This loss of contact used to feel bad
But it was for the better, for the better, yeah!
Because sometimes the bad is for the better!

The bad was for the better, yeah yeah yeah!

Yeah...

MAYBE

They fake a smile
Only to be accepted
But i will rather see you genuinely crying

They run a mile
Only to get far
But i will rather see you here trying

But you always say "maybe"
Maybe "maybe" means maybe
Maybe i am the one who may be

They know the right way
TV told them so
But i will rather hear your words

They are left in their disarray
I told them so
Because i only accept our mutual way

But you always say "Maybe"
Maybe "Maybe" means maybe
Maybe i am the one who may be

Maybe.
