    Oy everyone. So I write poems / song texts in my free time. Nothing serious, just for fun. To bring this section to life I thought it would be a good idea to post some pieces here. May be they entertain or even make you think a little bit, who knows? :D Let me know what you think. Best of wishes to everyone.

    Let go

    I know the time must come
    to end my shame.
    Searching for my healed scars,
    just to cut them again.
    Have you ever wondered?
    Have you ever covered yourself up
    to comfort your empty soul?
    I'll never forget.
    Everything got so goddamn foul,
    way too fast.
    I tried so hard.

    I wanted to be your friend.
    I can't let you go.
    Never will find someone like you.
    I need someone for my story.
    I can't let you go.

    This time I can't scream,
    while scratching my itchy wounds.
    No. I'll never forget,
    How broken my soul is,
    I try to hide.
    I tried so hard.
    I wanted to be your friend.
    I have to let you go.
    Never will find someone like you.
    I need someone for my story.
    I have to let you go.
    I wanted to be your friend.
    I have to let you go.
    I will never know.
    I'll let you go now!

    I love it, very deep and well thought out, shows that whats truly inside is harsh and hard to handle at times. Im not that great at literature crap but this looks amazing man, I always like to read some deep poems and you hit that nail right on the spot!

    Oy Taco_cat I am very glad you enoyed it. Writing "deep" poetry is my thing really, although everything can be "deep" when you are taking a good look at it. In my opinion at least^^ Well I got a lot more: Deep, serious, funny, ridicolous, cringy, ironic, sad, deepressing, motivating stuff. Everything really. Just posting one after another until I get banned for spamming or something :D

    Breakup

    I got something new.
    Open your heart!
    Now I can see right through.

    Several tricks
    in a mix,
    take a kiss.
    Nervous drums and questions
    for a quick fix.
    So relax,
    while we wait for the night,
    just open your heart, it's gonna be alright.
    Listen.

    Waiting all the night.
    Danger left and right.
    Devil's inside this building.
    It's such a bad sign.
    Shadows lurking like creatures.
    Glancing around towards you, yeah.
    People run to shelter.
    What's gonna happen to us?

    All the steps we take,
    all the moves we make,
    all those may be mistakes.
    I see the chaos, like everyone.
    Who are we?
    What can we do?

    You and I, we aren't on the same page.
    We walk along without style and we want change.
    Follow the melody,
    and not your eyes.
    There is literally no way we can grow.

    Can't hold not much longer.
    I will never let go.
    I know it's a one way track.
    Tell me how long this will last.
    I'm not gonna think this way.
    Don't wanna be a coward nor a lover.
    Look my eyes and feel right through.
    Now I see what I gotta do.
    Open your heart, it's gonna be alright.

    There is absoluteley no anchor.
    Shadows keep attacking.
    Lift off, close to crying.
    Confusion, all this anger.
    I don't know what it is,
    but you drive me crazy.
    All your conniving tricks make me sick.
    You won't have it your own way.

    Can't hold not much longer.
    I will never let go.
    I know it's a one way track.
    Tell me how long this will last.
    I'm not gonna think this way.
    Don't wanna be a coward nor a lover.
    Look my eyes and feel right through.
    Now I see what I gotta do.
    Open your heart and you will see.

    Open your heart, it will be alright.
    Just Keep on going you, just hold on tight.
    Now we got a leftover here,
    I am using poetry for this breakup.
    Oh well, nice try.
    Better luck next time,
    leaving all those problems behind.
    Who will be crawling back at the speed of sound?
    We can just tear everything down
    and build something up on some new ground.
    It's what we know, it's what we do, you see?
    So open up your heart, 'cause it will set you free.

    If we don't stop...
    There will be no future for us.
    It's hard standing up.
    My god, hate to say it but:
    I want to be free.

    I know it's a one way track.
    Tell me how long this will last.
    Look my eyes and feel right through.
    Now I see what I gotta do.

    Open your heart, it's gonna be alright.
