With a Mask in Place

I was alive
I had a soul
I walked the halls
It was so

But i was killed
Date unknown
I have no tombstone
And mourners none

But my body remains
An empty shell
That walks along
This is hell

A broken smile
And a mask in place
No one noticed
A death took place

the title of this is “With a Mask in Place” u want an interpretation. im stating my loneliness n it symbolizes such. the end with my ‘death’ meaning i am lonely and my friends do not notice, n if they do they do not seem to care, n whether or not they r my friends. yadda yadda yadda. all it is, is me showing my loneliness by saying that i ‘died’ (a metaphor for how lonely i am, how i feel unwanted, and my accepting these feelings as normal occurrences) and my friends not noticing. and the mask is how they don’t notice n e thing is wrong, they can’t see my loneliness n all as if i am wearing a mask over my face. and i use the word hell, but i mean it as the place n saying that loneliness is torture as if i was (guess where) in hell

Daytime in my Darkness

Its daytime in my darkness
Always surrounding me
A crowd is near
But yet i am lonely

Its only daytime here in my darkness
With only loneliness as company
I listen to the silence
Since no one can hear me

But still its daytime in my darkness
With a sun of black coal
My tears fall in a corner
And my silent cries echo

i am lonely. i was lonely when i wrote it. i still am. i am just plain lonely. i feel i have no true friends and i feel that no one likes me at all. i am lonely. there. enough said i hope.

Gray Death
The warm colors of fall have faded
Now the death of winter has raided
The first flakes begin to fall
I hardly notice them at all
White tears falling down from the sky
Why, oh why do the Angels cry?
Can they see through the sky so white,
The pain that plagues day and night?
“This gray death shall consume us all,”
On the icey winds the Angels do call
So as your body begins to numb,
From your mouth a white fog will hum
A piece of your soul on Angels’ wings will fly
Leaving your body behind to die.
Whispers of the Wind
All has come to twilight
Soon the fallow of night
But still I waited
Breath baited
Answers, the Wind does hold
Secrets untold
I hear its beckoning when the darkness falls
“Pain” are its calls
The Whispering Wind has long since faded
But here I stay, breath baited
The Sea
I don’t care what you say
Your words like pebbles thrown into the sea
Washed away
They didn’t even touch me
Lost into the shadows below
Settling as far down as they can go
To far to swim, you should know
But down to the bottom and back I go
Try me
Others took their hit
They made a puddle a sea
That’s what I make of it
Back down, but others will come
The sea will condemn them foe or friend
Some pebbles will join the others… some
Untouchable, I will remain, until the end
Phantom Father
You danced through my childhood, ghostly
Memories of you, I never had
You wish you were there, regrettably
You my Phantom Father
I learned to do without
I never felt sad
Unwanted love you sent about
You my Phantom Father
Now your back to make things “right”
Like a cow to the slaughter, you fallow the latest fad
I never needed you to tuck me in at night
You my Phantom Father
Give up the fight
You want a second chance, sorry but too bad
Your time has come to twilight
You my Phantom Father
Give me peace, now is the end
I’m sorry if I made you sad
All your love back to you I send
Goodbye to you,
My Phantom Father

The Unwelcome Visitor

He came to visit me again today,

I wish that he would stay away.

I didn’t ask for him to come,

I didn’t ask him where he’s from,

I’m happy when he isn’t here,

It’s hard to smile when he appears.

I hope he leaves me soon; he fills my life with gloom.

Sometimes his visit’s only brief,

A moment spent with no relief.

Sometimes he stays for quite a while; unwanted company to rile.

Me, then I try to walk away,

But he just wants to come and stay.

 

He did that first year when alone I faced a life,

Of loneliness without my wife.

He kept me constant company back then,

He drank with me and when,

I tried to drive him far away,

He came back often …day after day.

Sometimes I forget him; think he’s gone for good.

I wish often that he would.

Sometimes my life is filled with song,

But then he comes along,

To spoil my happiness with pain,

That black dog’s back with me again.

Alone

Another day has dawned to spend alone, I see, with just my memories for company.

Long hours to fill, an empty home, and sadness fills me as I roam.

I wander through the empty rooms, feel your presence…. Try to push away the gloom.

No one to share a word or joke, no one to hold my hand or hear a kind word spoke.

No one to share my bed…… So many things that were left unsaid.

Too much time to sit and think, too much time to sink,

Into hopelessness and pain…… If only I could have you back again.

There are two faces now to wear each day, two ways to live my life, it seems.

The outside world expects a smile, a pleasant face…. How’s your health and dreams?

I value every little word that’s said, they help to fill the empty spaces left ahead.

Then inside, all alone once more, I sit and watch the clock and door.

For time hangs so heavy now, and creases cover face and brow.

The phone sits silently and sulks, the post box empty, walk, walk,

Around the garden, do odd jobs, check the clock, then…. Oh god! Is it only half past ten?

I’ll get the car out, drive, but where? It’s just as lonely everywhere.

People hurry by as if I don’t exist somehow, another lost face in the crowd.

Ah well, at last it’s time for bed, time to rest my aching head.

Another day looms up ahead, more hours to fill…. Fills me with dread!
