Poetry Contest Winner: The Life

My emotions are like burning coal

It’s like a recycled love

A black hole in my soul

This love was sent from above

But what’s the explanation for this?

Your smile warms my pulse

Reeling me in complete bliss

Anxiety is the impulse

Your voice expels my fears

You break me down to a child

Obscure emotions clear

Unspoken words start to pile

Jealousy never hit me this hard

Animalistic instincts have me on guard

Unorganized emotions welter

I try to sever all my ties

My walls are built stronger than a bomb shelters

I’ll only play if your’e the prize

I’m branded in your name

It’s not obsession but your my possession

Do you feel the same?

Can you not see my expression of affection?

A road of self doubt

Everything is dull to me now

I’m being mean, I’m lashing out

I’ll always love you it’s my vow

I don’t play fair, I never learned to share

Try to test me if you dare, I don’t care

They’re all happy so why can’t I?

My dreams and joys lose their power

Without you I can’t thrive

Self deprivation covers me like a shower

Everyone’s too hypocritical

Self righteous pawns battle over their conflicts

Egotistically over critical

So many cliques to pick

Our love threatens the system

This they argue upon

This is a twisted existence

Ignorance is in their molecular bond

I’m filled with venom

But your a phenom

I would give up heaven to be with you

And I would follow you through the underworld

Tell me anything you want me to do

Your my god, my thunderbird

I don’t need to travel, you’re all I want to see

No view could compare to your perfection

You are more than enough for me

Being apart leaves me in psychotic depression

I’m crazy, you make me hazy, I’m swollen with pride

I’ll protect you into the winter of your life

It was a biblical ride

You leave with no strife

Our soul will relive this again

Everything I did wasn’t in vain
