Your Ways of Inertia

Your Ways of Inertia

A Poem by sinNsincerity

My poetry is what makes me happy;

but if I were happy, I wouldn't need the poetry to be.

I see your hearts breaking without opening your chest,

so I rest underneath to catch the tears

because that's what you'll express when you have nothing left.

To look inside and say you feel numb,

but numb is still one greater than none.

The older I get my heart feels young;

the flesh is none without my soul

and my soul is none without one.

My mind spewing out like a hot gun

because love is all I want!

Spirit resurrecting without passing the sun.

Then God’s son came down to allow my body more than one love.

Unconditional love was injected into my blood.

Sacrificed the vices for the nicest love from above.

Some say f**k love

because their love has been fucked!

Lightning struck and I reached out my hand to pick you up.

And if you didn't need my help,

you could always find me without yelp.

You got yourself,

but know I got yourself just as well.

Wishing on a well and not a star because what goes up must come down.

Your ways of inertia.

Your steady inconsistency took the best of me…

And that’s okay.

Out of control when you try to grasps the things

You cannot control

Because you have never held a hold.

Wow, brother. This was really something that hit me on a deep-rooted, personal note. Speaking to some of my yesterdays with this one.
J.Cole said "don't save her, she don't wanna be saved.." and in relation to this, it can fit right in seamlessly.
Some have been broken beyond knowing how to really receive love, even as the love is genuine. It comes as a defense mechanism against their own yesterdays.
Great write of yours, bro. Even if I'm late to the dance.

You must teach me your talents when it comes to rhyme, because I'm not good at it at all. You use rhyme really affectively and it totally goes with the poem. For instance, "Lightning struck and I reached out my hand to pick you up," is an excellent use of rhyme because it evokes great imagery, therefore adding to the intensity of what the narrater feels for the other person.

Lastly, I've also been in the narrators position before, countless times. I often feel like I'm the only one making the effort while the other person either uses me or doesn't seem to care as much. I'm so glad you touched on this topic! Keep up the good work!

This goes back to when I mentioned only liking half of what you write (but really liking the good half a great deal; you're an excellent author).

Your writing here is average but the idea is tremendous. .

I'll give you 1.25 bitcoins for the essence of this poem.

Or... you can send me a private message and I will you give undeniably awesome suggestions. (just sell me the idea dude)

Always a pleasure Lauren!
In life, there are some emotions that we classify as love but in true sense they remain undefined. It is unconditional, it is restless, it is eternal. While nothing lasts forever, some things are never-ending. I found reflection of such "something" in your words.

Looking forward to read more of your wonderful works. :)
Happy writing!

I am sure it is worth it!
This stanza:

"To look inside and say you feel numb,
but numb is still one greater than none.
The older I get my heart feels young;
the flesh is none without my soul
and my soul is none without one."

All I can say is "Wow, you're a great poet!" And you really are, with that funny, sarcastic, but complex voice of yours. This was an amazing read, good job. :)
