Make Me Smile....If You Can

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 8:42 am

Make Me Smile....If You Can


Do you want me to
tell you how I feel ?
To touch upon the 30 years of rage
built up inside of me,
No....
you don't,
Tears can make a soul
grow old,
Why must a person act
as if there's nothing wrong
when someone treats them
with no respect ?
Time rolls with the tide,
And the world rolls round & round,
Life does have its ups & downs,
But lately it has more downs
than ups,
Why ?
Sometimes...
I feel I must...
just get away
for my peace of mind,
They say that time heals all wounds,
Will it heal a wound of the heart ?
Make me smile...
if you can.

When It Comes To Matters

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 8:48 am

When It Comes To Matters

You say that you know me,
But when it comes to matters
I am but a stranger in your eyes,
Fools only profess
and try to touch
what they can only imagine,
Once you told me
that when I needed one to talk to
I could come,
But when the need is there
I only find shadows,
Where is it
that a man needs more
than love songs shared in intimacy ?
And here you are
claiming friendship,
But all I find
is emptiness in the wind,
The reasons don't really matter,
But the truth is there
for all to see,
Need I say more ?
Yet in celebrations
the rage is met.

The Hero Dies

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 8:49 am

The Hero Dies

And the hero dies,
Why ?
No one knows,
He just gives up his life,
Does anyone cry ?
No !
It's all for nothing,
The pain,
The love,
It's insane,
But it's true,
Some call him a fool,
Some say he's crazy,
But he just lives in a dream world,
Yes...
a special fantasy,
Strange
but true,
Bizzare and freaky,
But that's him,
The stranger
through all the end.

Let Me Try

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 8:52 am

Let Me Try

I wish you would let me love you
through hard times and good,
A celebration of memories,
Where we travel
Cinderalla would not be treated any better,
Through my mind
I find a comfortable world
that both of us can share,
When I hold you
peace finally I can find,
Why is it through my feelings
you can't find trust ?
Hearts rise only through a miracle,
And in your eyes
I find my comfort,
So all I ask
is let me try.

Empty Hearts

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 8:54 am

Empty Hearts


There you are saying that you love me,
But in those words there's something missing,
Yes,
There's something wrong
Though you speak freely,
But what can it be ?


Empty hearts
bring empty promises,
Through that....
there is no hope,
For love lives within the heart,
But without meaning
this love shall die,

Yes...
you're going through the motions,
But at what cost ?
For there is no fire in the heart,
And you're soul....
has grown cold,
Never to know why,
Still it is said,

Empty hearts
bring empty promises,
Through that...
there is no hope,
For love lives in the heart,
But without meaning
this love shall die,

So...
what do I mean ?
Well...
if love is the giving of two people
and the giving is not sincere
then the love is lost,
Never to be found,
And the tears....
go on forever
for someone else shall hear,

Empty hearts
bring empty promises,
Through that....
there is no hope,
For love lives in the heart,
But without meaning
this love shall die.

Heart

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 8:58 am

Heart


Heart,
Why do you tear me so ?
Is it the love she promised
but forgotten ?
Tears here are flowing
and I can't stop,
Why ?
Because I love her so,
These...
weren't words spoken untruly,
But by me...
felt so dearly,
It seems a shame
because I offered her everything,
And I asked only for one thing,
Her love,
Now I'm drowning in my tears,
It's sad.

Gone

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 9:01 am

Gone


Here I am
alone in the night without you,
What Happened ?
I though our love was alive,
But now you're gone,
Why ?
Was it something you said
that I wasn't listening to ?
Where did we go wrong ?
We were so much in love,
But now our love is gone,
The pain ?
Yes...
It's still here,
And no...
It won't leave,
Damn...
I wish you could just...
make it go away,
But somethings just don't,
And I'm so alone,
Yes...
so alone.

I'm Gone

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 9:03 am

I'm Gone


Here I am,
So tired of waiting,
That is...
for you to come around,
Do you need me
to hold you ?
To love you ?
To share all of your fantasies ?
Do you even care ?
Because if you don't,
I'll go somewhere else
where my love is appreciated,
You'd better make up your mind,
That is...
in a moments notice,
So if you want me,
You'd better let me know,
Otherwise...
goodbye !
We'll catch ya later .

A Cynic Rises

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 9:06 am

A Cynic Rises

Hail,hail
great goddess,
Forgive me for trespassing against
those who have hurt
my heart,
Two wrongs do not make a right,
Still...
I reserve the right to
reclaim my soul,
Perhaps in the future
a forgiveness
can be celebrated,
But for now
a betrayal is felt,
And truth has been forgotten?
Why?
What lesson has been founded?
Shadows rise
past the first moon
and the cynic rises within me.

Can't You See The Signs?

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 9:08 am

Can't You See The Signs?

Thoughts from a shattered heart
I hear a little girl looking for understanding,
And all she gets is a reprimand,
my soul reaches out to her,
Somehow wants to shelter her from the pain,
Can't you see
without harmony
life is too much to bear,
Those cutting words
ring forever
and haunt a lonely mind,
Is the world a blind callous memory
that grips a child
taking away its innocence
leaving only a hollow and fearful mind?
Why ?
Can't you see the signs
reaching out to destiny?

Sowing Those Rewards

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 9:10 am

Sowing Those Rewards


Reaching through those hard rigid
struggles,
Follow unwarned,
Wondering the reason
for the Gothic silence
mired only
in nearness of death,
Eclipsed in the invocation
of the blade
jagged
only in its measure,
That paranoia
felt in fear
which rages
in a river of blood,
Sired in the loins
of a homeless,wondering solitude,
That loneliness felt in a
cringed, helpless,smile,
Scarred beyond recognition
where you reach a lifetime
sowing those rewards that you reaped.

It Remains To Be Heard

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 9:12 am

It Remains To Be Heard

Arrive to touch at seventeen,
feel within that sunrise
where life had just begun,
just as you reach to touch those dreams,
Complexities mire to rush
beyond your hand
and you're left wondering....
Why ?
Blind hope celebrates
and laughs at you,
Jeering...
never leaving you alone,
Hostilities feel you in a rage,
But somehow it must be met
as a challenge,
To do anything else
is futile,
Like howling in the wind
where in that echo
it remains to be heard.

Within A Cry

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 10:39 am

Within A Cry


She's lost in a mirror
full of reflections, images and promises
inside herself,
She doesn't know wher she's going,
But it doesn't matter,
She's just looking for herself,
A face stares back at her,
But it's not one that she knows,
It's full of emptiness,
Sorrow and woes,
Sheletered only in a promise of time,
Where is it that
a spirit reveals
more than what some seek?
Those immortal time varied
only by a promise of an echo,
Yet...
in those memories
shadows rage in a cresendo
and she hears those distant voices,
Only to find
a miracle made immortal
within a cry.

Jagged Edges

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 10:42 am

Jagged Edges


I hear water running across,
And in my mind this occurs to me,
This room is cluttered and filled to the brim
like a cup running over,
Moments come like jagged edges,
And faces haunt me from forgotten moments,
Memories shout at me,
Taunting and fear overcomes,
Here I am...
Can't you see?
My mind is overclouded,
Moments are not clear,
My hand touches my face,
Rough...
Unshaven,
Pain fills my temples
and another day begins.

When A Heart Is Closed

Post by carndo » Wed Jul 11, 2007 10:44 am

When A Heart Is Closed


Changes are made by time,
But I am,
Who I am,
Somethings remain the same,
Expectations are never fully met,
How is it
that I can see things one way
and you...
another?
Without communication
that road we journeyed together on
parts forever,
Why?
Friendship
sometimes is a hard
thing to find,
Acceptance should never be taken for granted,
Maybe I was wrong,
But we'll never find that out
when a heart is closed,
Can we?
