    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!

    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.

    Shadows of darkness

    Hello loneliness my old friend,
    I've come to talk with you again.
    Because the pictures in my heart are showing
    and the tiredness keeps on surviving
    and the demons that are planted in my brain
    are still living
    within the shadows of darkness.

    Restless I wander with my bare feet
    a painful path made of glass.
    Needless to say you want me to appreciate.
    I really wonder if I can ever pass
    when my feet are stained
    with the beautiful red of my blood
    that attests the harshness
    which lurks in the shadows of darkness.

    And all of a sudden I am witnessing
    dozens of generations aimlessly wandering.
    People talking without meaning,
    people hearing without understanding,
    people writing poems without knowing
    the only truth.
    Is noone daring
    to enter the shadows of darkness?

    Considering this, you can not see
    what kind of hell this will be.
    If you trust me I can teach you.
    If you take my arms I may reach you.
    Take my word: I accept my fate without hate.
    I still am in the shadows of darkness.

    All of us just want some balance
    to continue our lives with grace.
    Visions are washed out with shades
    and yes, also I fall on my face.
    Scientists, artists, athletes, everybody here needs their own pace to understand
    you'll need your heart, not your eyes
    to navigate through the shadows of darkness.

    Inspired by Simon and Garfunkel - Sound of silence (covered by Disturbed) ... But I guess you all figured that one out, huh? :D

    All we want is love

    Listen, I want to teach
    not minding how many I reach,
    what following phrase consists of:
    All we want is love.

    Love is a tough decision to make.
    We know it must be something great.
    What we don't know is what we have to do,
    what burdens to bare,
    what wisdoms to share,
    how we have to prepare,
    to suffer through despair.
    Are we even allowed to compare?

    Love is not about feeling better.
    Love is about the sacrifices you make together.

    Love ain't a wonderpill,
    which lets you fullfill
    every damn thing you will.
    Nevertheless you still
    want to climb up that hill?
    Bullshit.
    This is not what love is about.
    If you feel like that
    you better start to obey the stupid crowd.

    Love is about the pain
    you endure together,
    not minding the falling rain.
    Love has a weird flavour.
    The sacrifices you are willing to make,
    or simply to give everything it has to take,
    in order to overcome the dark shade.
    How long will you persue this fate?

    Love is not more valuable than friendship,
    Love does not always make you feel splendid.
    Love is not about the quality of your defense.
    Love is, simply put, just an awful lot more intense.

    Love is about cheating.
    Not on her
    you dumb jerk.
    I am clearly talking
    about cheating on yourself.
    What's about this fine woman here?
    Maybe her over there?
    Your mind is leaving this atmosphere.
    How the fuck is this even fair?
    All this temptation outside,
    but you frankly fail to realize,
    she doesn't feel otherwise,
    this undoubtedly can not be paradise.

    You are slowly starting to frown.
    Can't really blame you if this lecture is making you furious.
    In the end it all comes down
    to taking responsibility very serious.

    Love will fail those who are searching for perfection.
    Love will fail those who are craving for satisfaction.
    Love will fail those who are looking for sexual action.
    Love will fail those who are falling for seduction.
    Love will bless those who are taking responsibility and obligation.

    The highway to love is hard and far,
    just like the way to your most precious star.
    On top of that it seems there is no retreat,
    or tell me why are
    all these dead bodies laying on the concrete.

    Being with her doesn't always taste like cupcakes.
    Desire for a new adventure, how to overcome?
    Are you suddenly afraid of doing mistakes?
    Commit suicide. Because you certainly will do some.

    Do you remember how you emphasized
    that you'd stay with her until you die?
    By the end of this verse you realize
    every given promise was just one stupid lie.

    Until you see that you fucked up.
    There is no way for a fresh start.
    You not only simply broke-up,
    you literally broke a heart.

    You're lonely, wandering,
    desperately wondering:
    "Was it too much to conquer?"
    You are looking to her.
    She's fed up.
    Now you understand all this fuzz.
    Love kills us.
    Just as well as our life does.

    Out of here!

    Just one more goddamn day before I finally realize
    all I will do is to fight
    the whole night.
    Give me one more day, I will see
    that fate only mocks me.
    This is one of a kind.
    I don't know if I'm right.

    People can no longer doubt the harshness of life
    if all there is left is darkness in their sight.
    They will remember the moment they checked both of their sides.
    Their daily life promptly resigns.

    This fear inside you restrains because you know this will be one hell of a ride,
    taking all your pride.
    Risk mixed up with pain, at the end of this struggle you can't know if you get denied.
    Makes you shiver all night.

    People can no longer deny the tragedy of life
    once they incontrovertibly find out the price
    they have to pay, all the actions and decisions aside.
    Hope is not the only one that cries.

    Now I want you to open up your mind
    to fully comprehend mankind.
    You really should open up your mind
    so you don't feel quarantined.
    All you must do is open up your mind
    in order not to remain blind.
    You only have to open up your mind
    to see all the corpses you already left behind.

    People can no longer run from reality.
    They are too busy to obey their made up prophecy.
    They will remember the moment they dared to open their eyes.
    Hope not only cries, it simply dies.

    Throw all your fists in the air.
    Not much longer and you want to scream:
    "Oh please, just get me out of here!"

    Not bulletproof

    Contemplating,
    isolating,
    and it's burning me out.
    Differentiating,
    not recovering,
    taking another knockout.
    I urgently need a clue what to do
    but I promised to make sure that I will never leave you.

    Now I want you, now I need you,
    You are too far gone.
    I really try to fix my life without breaking it.
    I'm telling you, I'm not bulletproof,
    believe me, I'm not bulletproof.
    May be I'm strong, but not bulletproof.
    And now you are too far gone.

    I'm addicted and so afflicted
    that It is fucking me over.
    Only confusion,
    can't see a solution,
    it was you who gave me all affirmation.
    Can only last a set amount of pain,
    considering to quit the game
    but I am telling you that nothing will ever be the same.

    Now I want you, now I need you.
    You are too far gone.
    Going through the dark,
    for orientation I need a spark.
    I'm telling you, I'm not bulletproof,
    believe me, I'm not bulletproof.
    Yes, may be I'm strong, but not bulletproof.
    And now you are too far gone.

    Now I want you, now I need you.
    You are too far gone.
    I'm so frustrated:
    Why's everything complicated?
    I'm telling you I'm not bulletproof.
    Oh baby I'm not bulletproof.
    Listen honey I'm not bulletproof.
    Your soul is too far gone.

    I am assuring you, I'm not bulletproof.
    After all it does depend on the mood.
    I certainly am not bulletproof.
    And now you are gone for good.

    The fallen ones

    I have begun to realize
    as a matter of fact I am
    not an innocent lamb
    more like a freak in disguise.
    It's easy now to compromise
    good and evil
    even though
    I don't even know
    what is wrong and what is right.
    And suddenly i feel alive
    thanks to your words that revive
    my strength lingering inside.
    I have never thought that you would be by my side.
    I am really wondering if our time is worthwhile.
    I have no doubts anymore, because it is time.

    Shyly I stumble everytime
    towards you and I'm reverently begging that
    you hold me for the rest of our life.
    Thank you for opening up my mind
    and for dealing with disquiet
    while the world maliciously gibes
    a man who secretly cries.
    I'm so unbelievably happy that you arrived.
    All my principles reborn and refined.
    Letting love inside,
    and we both know why.
    'Cause you are mine.
    It's crazy, I never would have believed that you could be mine.
    It's funny, I never would have thought that we would walk the same line.

    And it doesn't really matter how often we date,
    always admiring the wonderful moments we create.
    At the same time we both know that there is no escape.
    We make sure that we will never forget.
    One thing is clear and on this I would bet:
    As long as we follow this healthy mindset
    we would never be able to regret.
    As far as I can remember
    We want to take over the world together.

    I am burning inside.
    Pain and agony comprised.
    You were mine.
    Oh please, just let me be the one carrying you with pride.
    These times get really shabby because you lied.
    How Do I regain control when you are on the other side?
    We can't take over the world no more because you died.
    You died.

    When hope is lost

    We tried to love with responsibility,
    but now it's over.
    We ran forward in order to live with dignity,
    not to surrender.
    We walked our path together until the end,
    do you remember?
    I'm caught beneath this loss of my one and only love,
    this time forever.

    When angels fall, with broken wings,
    no giving up. The pain, it stings.
    When hope is lost and daylight ends,
    I will carry you
    and we will live happily ever after,
    this time forever.

    Darkness chases the light away.
    It's useless.
    I tried everything I potentially could, but failed.
    It's pointless.
    Broken I remain brave
    and be mourning at your grave.

    When angels fall, with broken wings,
    no giving up. The pain, it stings.
    When hope is lost and daylight ends,
    I will carry you
    and we will live happily ever after,
    this time forever.

    The darkness becomes thicker,
    and I start to get really bitter.
    Wishing I could go back in time
    or to leave everything behind.
    Do I already have to say goodbye?

    When angels fall, with broken wings,
    no giving up. The pain, it stings.
    When hope is lost and daylight ends,
    I will carry you
    and we will live happily ever after,
    this time forever.
    Forever?
    Forever!

    Medication

    Always when in need of motivation
    and the reason doesn't want to come outside.
    All I need is a little bit of intoxication
    so the reason can't no longer run and hide.
    When I take a bite of the pills of death
    it makes me forget all the stress.

    Throw in the pills.
    I like to swallow the pills.
    Pain must be killed.
    Throw in the pills.
    Because when I take the pills
    I can finally feel
    a thrill.

    When in need a little bit of satisfaction,
    my medicine for that isn't hard to find.
    And if I've lost yet again my prescription
    I will fall incredibly far behind.
    The reason is slowly stepping out of the rain,
    it helps me to endure all this pain.

    Throw in the pills.
    I like to swallow the pills.
    Ache must be killed.
    Throw in the pills.
    Because when I take all these pills,
    for once: I can finally feel
    a thrill.

    Throw them in.
    Swallow them all.

    Throw in the pills.
    I like to swallow the pills.
    Agony must be killed.
    Throw in the pills.
    Because when I take all these pills,
    for once: I can finally feel
    a thrill.

    I miss her

    Have you ever loved someone so much you would die for her,
    not the expression, no
    literally love in its core.
    When she knows she's your heart
    and you know she provides your lore,
    a situation where you can not ask for more.
    But what happens when fate
    switches sides and rips you apart,
    when you are questioning anything you ever had at last.
    What happens if she is becoming the main source of your pain?
    The moment you realize it is already way too late.
    You're starting to wonder where is she? Where could she be?
    'I don't know', may be she is way too busy currently.
    You grab your phone and ask her friend what is wrong,
    her answer: "She had a car crash, she's in hospital, go see her, you must be strong."
    Trembling in, she's there. With tears you say you love her
    and you put your shaky hands on a dead body which is a spitting image of her.
    This shit ain't funny.
    Retro's gradually loosing his mind.
    Agony is one of its kind.
    Retro's wrists might get bloody tonight.

    "When I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn,
    feel satisfaction each time I come back as a halucination.
    Hold on to your memories,
    because I am afraid that
    this might be everything you will get.
    When I'm gone, just carry on, don't cry,
    you will appreciate how fast time will go by.
    But don't forget that I am still alive
    right inside your heart, wise guy,
    so baby, please hold on, or else I'll die."

    I keep having this dream,
    I am searching her in this bright room.
    You can't imagine how loud I scream her name
    It kind of feels like a doom.
    I am only feeling pure frustration.
    Could this be the upcoming regression?
    Found her, salvation.
    Running to her,
    embracing and wildly kissing her.
    I'm saying to her while crying:
    "Don't leave me, you're mine."
    She's taking a good look at me, sublimetely smiling,
    I'm adding: "I beg you honey, don't leave, please, no! Stop."
    She's starting to laugh,
    calmly caressing my hair.
    She's not allowing any dread.
    We both know I will never stop to love.
    I want to follow her, but she is shaking her head.
    She's putting her hands around me, pushing me to her
    and says: "You only got one chance to do right
    and it is in this life.
    You have to go back now
    before this room gets pitchblack."
    And just as I quicky turn around to check something,
    she vanishes, fuck! She is gone. I wake up and I am hearing her singing:

    "When I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn,
    feel satisfaction each time I come back as a halucination.
    Hold on to your memories,
    because I am afraid that
    this might be everything you will get.
    When I'm gone, just carry on, don't cry,
    you will appreciate how fast time will go by.
    But don't forget that I am still alive
    right inside your heart, wise guy,
    so baby, please hold on, or else I'll die."

    It's the same dream,
    the very same beginning.
    I have the depressing feeling
    that something is not right at all.
    Can't you hear my call?
    All I can see are empty walls.
    Funnily enough no door is shut,
    I must be close enough.
    Found her again but
    I don't believe what I am seeing.
    It is my girl, with her throat cut!
    My soul is bleeding out,
    the only thing I can do is to shout.
    Everything that I wanted to crave
    was at the very end impossible for me to save.
    All for nothing. Now I become unbelievably sad.
    The blood on the wall says: "Best boyfriend ever".
    I guess I got what I deserved.
    For a moment I'm staying reserved.
    Who is this over there?
    It is myself with an ugly grin.
    "I am you. Your doubts more precisely.
    Apparently it seems to me that you don't get why the smearing.
    The only person I am blaming
    is you pathetic, useless freak.
    It is obvious why the hell you can't fall asleep.
    Just take another pill,
    yeah I bet you will.
    Swallow all to kill
    yourself and bring it to an end."
    He's handing me a gun, ready to shoot myself.
    It doesn't matter no more 'cause I lost my most precious root.
    I turn around, fine, I go underground, fuck it.
    Point the gun to my brain. Retro says goodbye and I pop it.
    This room darkens, my life flashes.
    The path my angel and me were supposed to go together collapses
    and burns to ashes.
    That's when I wake up,
    totally confused and sweaty.
    It's warm outside,
    I feel happy
    I see my love near the window, watching.
    I walk right up to her and kiss her, tell her I miss her.
    She smiles back, comforts me, laying her head on my shoulder
    and she is whispering in my ear:

    "When I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn,
    feel satisfaction each time I come back as a halucination.
    Hold on to your memories,
    because I am afraid that
    this might be everything you will get.
    When I'm gone, just carry on, don't cry,
    you will appreciate how fast time will go by.
    But don't forget that I am still alive
    right inside your heart, wise guy,
    so baby, please hold on, or else I'll die."

    Inspired by Eminem - When I'm gone
