For What It Is

For What It Is

A Poem by Hide From God

Too often people try to derive hidden messages from my works even if it is pretty clear that what I wrote about means exactly that. Sometimes writing doesn't have to be so intricate.

I sit down in my own time
Trying to write these lines
Rhyme after rhyme after rhyme
Try to make sense of my words
Try to make them flow, make them vibe
Give them meaning, double meanings
My words shrouded in mystery
Making you dig for what I say
What I really want them to mean
Hell it could mean anything anymore
I don't even know what they mean no more
Because it seems like these words
These words have lost their meaning
No longer crystal in trying to be clear
Tried to hard to make it sound deeper
Digging away the truth for which I speak

This isn't how I rhyme, this isn't my style
These aren't my words, this ain't my flow
This ain't my meaning or me anymore
Because when I write it comes from my mind
Everything you read means what it means
I'm not trying to trick you or deceive you
Thinking you're reading something you're not
I don't hide my my feeling by covering them up
My emotions are there, thrown across the page
There's no telling where I'll go from there

So don't read between my lines
Just see what I see, eye for eye
And you'll realize that this is all it is
Nothing hidden, no double meanings
Just my thoughts and feelings
Written down on this page
Capturing all that I feel

Hide From God
I am not sure about the ending, last stanza, don't know if it works or not, maybe I should take it out?

You shouldn't change a thing about this piece, simply because it's real - real emotions and frustrations and truth. I enjoyed it.

I like this a lot! It's so true. One time, I wrote a poem about crayons and my friends were like, "Marina! You are an enigma! It's amazing how you could correlate eating crayons to that!" It makes me laugh.

This is good, though. You should keep the last part. I like it.

Tattooed Hearts and Broken Promises. Oh girl this boat is sinking, There's no sea left for me. And how the sky gets heavy, When you are underneath it. Oh, I want to sail away from here, And G.. more..
