Sunset

A Poem by Matt
"

i wrote this for a girl named Chloe

"

I’d give up so much to be so little.

(You’ll never be like them)

Such a small grasp of fake reality.

(just give up all the lies)

Hating the way they look at me.

(Could you hate yourself so much you’d refuse to see?)

I’d give up so much!!! To be so little.

(Wishing you just wouldn’t be)

 

Chorus

Forget this insecurity.

They’re all drowning beneath this reality.

(The sun’s gone down and isn’t coming back.)        

All eyes swallowing me.

Watch the ground as your smiles begin to lack.

(The sun’s gone... She’s never coming back.)

Forget the stares… (Hold onto this..)

 

Could i be ok being this shallow?

A gift turning; shaping me so hollow.

Look past all the truths they speak.

Dwell on the stares and useless lies.

She screamed when she saw me.

Turn and run. Never coming back

 

(Bridge)

Are you really hearing me?!

All you take in are the waves,

Crashing and weathering down.

The tears sinking deep within.

Is this jealousy really such a sin?

 

 

To wear a mask of reliability.

Lie and say, yea ill be alright.

There’s no solution for tonight.

The sun’s gone down. She isn’t coming back.

This is really good, I think you have a future in song writing! :)
It is quite sad though, "to wear a mask of reality", I think we all feel like that at some point in our lives, we just need to learn to take off the mask. Show ourselves again.
Cant wait to hear it with music.

You have great talent, Matthew. I definitely see a future of music and writing in store for you, if that happens to be your choice of pursuit. This is very well crafted writing!

I don't know what it is. But when people use a source of life or an object of any kind really and refer to it as a human being, it has a weird effect that I really like ha.

this is ...powerfull, i dont know what to say. You are way much better at songwriting than i am.
I think you do have a future in songwriting like rain said.

I was wondering, How often do you write songs?

Im looking for a songwriter, im a aspiring singer, and need some new material to sing. Mind writing a few for me?

I could have sworn I reviewed this before... I read it last night, for sure. I don't know what happened to the review, but let me say what I said again:

I really liked the words and it sounded really great in my head. My favorite line has to be: I’d give up so much!!! To be so little."

It's so hard to measure up to everyone's expectations and harder to take their abuse when you fall short.

Great write! Keep up the good work.
