Tomorrow is a Ghost of Yesterdays Broken Heart

Tomorrow is a Ghost of Yesterdays Broken Heart

A Poem by Sweet & Tender Hooligan
"

The whole world drags us down and haunts us all.

"
It's better to be alone than lonely, cause houses are not homes
All dreams turn bad all beginnings end, that's just the way the world is
All boys are men and man is a woman, flowers are just the language of fists
It's better to be sad than pretending to be happy, cause thoughts are nothing but anxiety.

Things left unsaid paint your mind blue, we're just broken hearts in the rain
Sometimes good things happen at the wrong time, hours alone yesterday never leaves
Sometimes bad times happen when things seem right, tomorrow reborn all love is loveless
Things are back to the root of bad dreams, all dreams eat feelings away.

Except it's the same road just a different city, with the same adverts that lead nowhere 
The mouth is a shadow of a shadow of the heart, too much on my mind you're too much
The eyes paint the feelings that memories evaporate, behind clouds like life on hold
Except it's time we took armour off for gentleness, what may seem strange is only human.

This was a deep and tragic poem. I was very impressed by the imagery. It seemed both otherworldly and down to earth, which is a difficult line to walk so impressively. Some of your analogies were a little difficult to catch, but only in the sense that I had to read them twice, which makes them much, much better. This was a beautiful write, thank you for posting.

Great piece. The first stanza especially; I want to tattoo the words to my arms to have them always near.

Hey there, how have you been? I just came by because I had the sudden urge to read "People are worn out shadows" and then I got captivated by this poem's title. As I started reading, I got quickly caught up within the lines, laughing from time to time at the ironic yet truthful verses which you have written. Particularily, "Sometimes good things happen at the wrong time" is definitively my favorite line, perhaps because I'm quite used to the feeling. Seems to me as if you truly spend a lot of time thinking before writing, yet, people had said that to me before when I really wrote something out of thin air, perhaps you're just a natural intellectual writer, if so, well WOW!! I really envy your writings, I won't lie saying I envy you in a good way, thus envy isn't good, no matter which way you see it, but I'd say it isn't that bad to be envied at all. Well, if I'm making any sense at all with this review, I would just like to add that this was a spectacular writing. I enjoyed every single bit of it, thanks for letting us read your work.

The beginning was priceless! Such emotion and blatant truth and meaning in this one. No need for sugar coating of any sort- you gave it as it was. Loved it!

And all is balanced, its just we don't percieve it as so! I often wonder how much we can possibly take on board of hurt!
The illusion of life, the frantic questioning, amazing piece love, as always

I adore this. The last stanza is one that I truly feel gets your thoughts across to the reader. Great job, my friend.
