You know I can't post it with angels in the background - I'm just unable :( but this one is quite famous

FUNERAL BLUES

Stop all the clocks. Cut off the telephone.
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let the aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling in the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, me east and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood;
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

I like loneliness.

She's my best friend.

She gives me peace.

She gives me happiness.

She understands me.

Life without loneliness is empty.

Life without loneliness is stressful.

Life without loneliness is a nightmare.

Loneliness is anybody's best friend.




What's the suitable title? Any idea?

My simple suggestion is: Be alone.

Only You

A person can make you feel high.
A person can make you feel low.
But only you can decide,
Which way you want to go.

A person can hurt you mentally,
A person can hurt you physically.
But only you can place,
A limit on your abilities.

A person can cause drama,
A person can cause a situation.
But only you can create,
Your own reputation.

A person can make you laugh,
A person can make you cry.
But only you can make,
Decisions for your life.

I guess what I'm trying to say,
That when you're living day by day.
Don't live by what people do,
But live by what you know is true.

WHISPER

I want to leave this place
Just to get away and feel the breeze upon my face
And just be myself
By leaving this place behind and everything else.

As I sit here in this chair
I feel this emptiness inside my soul
Praying that questions will be answered for the stories in my life untold

As I stare out my window thinking about my past
I think of how I used to be and why it didn't last

Everyday I walk around with a fake smile
Knowing that the pain inside of me will hurt only for a little while
Sometimes when I'm alone I want to cry
And other times I want to crawl inside myself and die

As I think to myself
I feel that I will never grow up, never containing my insanity
Because of the thoughts and criticism of the people around me

One day I will understand
The Lord's Plan
That He has for me
In this world of hatefulness and cruelty
And let go of the pain that is holding on inside me.

Before


I remember a type of quote people used to say
But I never really understood it 'til today

Life will only get harder from here
I think about that almost every time I shed a tear

I look back on the happy years I once had
And I wish for them to come back Oh so bad

Pressure is a big part of teenage lives today
Temptations of sex, drugs, and violence never seem to go away

You never really know which road to choose
It seems which ever way you go, your bound to lose

Happiness eventually falls on your lap
Only to look once more and see it gone in a snap

Why does it seem I can't smile like before?
As if the joyous part of me walked right out the door

I never show my true feelings which is why I'm writing this poem
I guess my feelings are personal to me and I'm too embarrassed to show 'em

One day I'll find happiness again
I just have to live my life until then

And while I'm waiting just for that
I think I'll give myself a pat on the back

'Cuz I've come this far without giving up completely
I'm trying to enjoy life, it's very difficult, believe me

I guess that's the message I'm trying to send out
To keep your head up when giving up is what your thinkin 'bout

Take life's punches right in the face
And you'll see things will come to you at there own pace
If you don`t like me remember it's mind over matter..I don't mind and you don't matter..

Lonely

Day after Days,
Night after Night,

The world moves as I stay still.
Staring at my plain dark bedroom wall.

Mother knocks on my door, but I feel too numb to answer
She cries, but I motionlessly don't answer.

I lie on my bed,
Screaming in my head.

Pain forever with me never leaving.
It goes with me everywhere.

Like my shadow,
Constantly there.

Now my sister turning into darkness.
She will before long be just like her brother.

And mother will soon give in.
The echo of glass breaking,

The sound of my mother screaming,
And me still emotionless as I lay.

The doors are slamming.
More glasses breaking.

And me just falling,
With no delay.

Now the house grows dark.
Only the noise of the wind and the crickets grows.

And for me I have now been swallowed by the darkness.
And all my fears have come true.

If you don`t like me remember it's mind over matter..I don't mind and you don't matter..

My Promise

Things haven't been the same
Since you've been gone.
For a while I wondered
How I'd carry on.

The emptiness inside,
It aches all the time.
That is the reason why
I am writing this rhyme.

When I heard the news,
I didn't know what to do.
It happened so suddenly,
It just couldn't be true.

They said you'd passed on,
And you weren't coming home.
You'd gone on to Heaven,
Where your soul could roam.

I cried all day
And I cried all night.
I say I'm okay,
But I'm not quite alright.

How can I pretend
That I'm not still in pain,
And wipe away the tears
That fall like rain?

I'll remember that day,
The day that we met,
And your smiling face
I will never forget.

This is my promise,
A vow I'll keep evermore:
You'll be in my heart
Until I reach Heaven's shores.
If you don`t like me remember it's mind over matter..I don't mind and you don't matter..

Best Friends

A friend is a treasure that everyone has

Sometimes they come, sometimes they pass
Your friends will stay if you don't betray or lie

Or leave them behind
Just put this on your mind

A friend is what you need
To succeed in this life

In this world were you can't live you can't breath
Life will be unfair but your friend will be there

To give you hope, and faith
And a path that is right to take

This will lead you to your dreams
That you never thought would come true

That is being friends forever with you.
Sometimes you forget

What your friend has done
You just stab them in the back

And leave them behind
But when it comes to them

And they don't do the same
You just turn your back

And do it again
But one sunny day

You will be alone
Then you will realize

that all you once had is gone.
If you don`t like me remember it's mind over matter..I don't mind and you don't matter..
