You don't know me

You don't know me

A Poem by TheAimlessWanderer
"

A Rap So Rap it

"
YOU DON'T KNOW ME
you don't know how much it hurts
dragging my cut filled body out through the dirt
out through the grave
"YOU DON'T KNOW ME"
you can hear my words
but can you feel my curse ?
in every line and verse ?
"YOU DON'T KNOW ME"
but everybody seems to think they do
just like you
YOU DON'T KNOW ME
but we all seem to think we do

my words are like vipers spitting venom
a virus method
corrupt left untouched
most vultures would die trying to cough it up 

let it spew out
melt the foundation of the know
because this is not all i have to show

your just seeing the surface of my corpse
one line in my virus code
the method i use to be known

these lyrics aren't skin deep
the inner workings of a toxic sage
every line 
every page
soaked deeply with my infinite rage
and sadness unending and fears that just won't go away
a passion for life that never stays

SO YOU DON'T KNOW ME

the reason why it hurts
the reason why i drag myself through this dirt
why i let myself get infinitely hurt

speak your truth let it be known through all words i have shone
let the virus slither, borough

release all your pain and worries onto me
because their all my scar filled eyes can see

and i am here for you 
because you are here for me

another attempt to brave the sea 
faltered by the sound of my own heartbeat
this toxic blood pumping through my veins
making me catatonic
another journey cut short

another line to write in my virus code
what is left to be shown

another layer of skin buried deep in the dirt

burned scorched unrecognizable 

from the sand and ashes dripping in my hour glass
no class 
just shattered glass 

cutting 
and infecting those who pick up the pieces
SO YOU Don't Know Me
what is behind every line and verse
and this balloon called my sanity waiting burst under the weight of my curse
it's the end of this verse
SOMEBODY BRING THE HEARSE !!

This is so wonderful and relatable, it's crazy. None of us really know each other because we would have to live in each other's shoes to understand. Plus, the mind can be a great enemy... People don't understand what goes on in it. What's important is knowing ourselves and being true to ourselves. This poem has a beautiful message, which I admire. Thank you for sharing this!

WOW. It's been a really long while and I come back to yet again be mind-blow. That was fantastic. As someone mentioned before, the poem has an incredible beat that seemed to me to feel like the beat of the heart of the narrator. It started off calm, and then slowly got faster and faster and faster... until it slowed and then stopped.
As always, you manage to capture emotions and weave them into the words you write. This poem especially hits home to me, as I know I've thought "You don't know me" many many times in my life to a large variety of people.

It is likely I projected this onto your work from my own experiences but the poem seemed to be filled with a hurt kind of angry.

As usual though, I'd like to ask what inspired the poem and what you meant it to mean. :)

Thank you so much for sharing! You have an incredible amount of talent.

This is a genuine, thought-provoking piece. Very well expressed. And very true. No one really knows You. But, in my humble opinion born of my own experiences, when you stop seeking others acceptance and find your own...when you can accept yourself for who you are, no matter who that is, that's when s**t starts coming together. Don't give up, writing is an excellent tool, keep using it. Make it your b***h.

Hey, no one else was going to bring the hearse. So, I bought the hearse. That is a true friend. :D
Sorry, Chris, I'm not into rap, so not sure how to pick up the rhythm. I'll keep trying though. The message comes through loud and clear. All the anger, angst and uncertainty of youth is here, that feeling that you're alone and no one understands what you're going through. Very good. It is well written and says what you're feeling. Keep writing, my friend.
