No life, no hope only fear

No life, no hope only fear

A Poem by Sweet & Tender Hooligan
"

Time beats us all.

"
The things kept silent can kill us,
The things that save us can betray us.
Sullen skies drained of all love
Forced smiles as you kick up sand, 
Eyes look away in long grass.
Once you get your head around dreams,
Nightmares take all your dreams away.
Soon as you've dreamt life makes you wish you hadn't,
Cause life makes you wish you didn't have to feel.

The things you said make me feel bad,
The things I never said make me feel sad.
She loved you no less than air
He loves you even though he's not there,
Love may as well be just kisses in the wind.
Stones through glass in the clearest day,
Echo sorrows suffered from another time.
Waves of despair sway under a colourless sky,
The heart sinks and dreams drain away.

The things you keep silent kill me,
The things I never say will be the death of me.
 
Childhood streets never seem the same
Returning to a memory is like being a ghost,
Faces are years and memories are merely tears. 

Dead flowers and tiny ran over animals,
Ice cold hearts scatter the fear of life. 
Shadows are restricted emotions,
And I can't do anything right.

The things I said make me feel bad,
The things that save us can make us feel sad.
I wish I could live without having to feel
I could disappear or I could even die,
But aren't we all dead anyway?
Weathered hearts tired of love,
Wilted minds sick of thinking all the time.
Love is sick of hearing about the love of love,
Minds tire of thought but imagine thinking without thinking.

"Once you get your head around dreams,

Cause life makes you wish you didn't have to feel."

Wow... I couldn't have phrased it better. That was a very hard hitting line. The whole poem just rang through me. Very strong, and very true. Excellent work. Definitely one of my favorites.

Powerful powerful poem my friend, excellent job

Stones through glass in the clearest day,
Echo sorrows suffered from another time.
Waves of despair sway under a colourless sky,
The heart sinks and dreams drain away.

"Sullen skies drained of all love"
I love this line, so short but yet so stong. Great job!

a look at the engine of life , that enigmatic process of perplexion that exercises our mind , that shove to re-think what we think we know ..
