"Irony" Is An "Epic Fail" With Too Much Grace

"Irony" Is An "Epic Fail" With Too Much Grace

A Poem by trainwreck

Its hard to fall apart gracefully.


There is a box in my room

Reserved for you

And all the love I know you have

For me and my brokenness.

I love you too,

But I can't lock these memories,

They are just too bittersweet.

You are my 11:11 wish

All this "love" is just a sickness,

because it wakes me up

in the middle of the night.

You could say that its medicine

because now I'm certain I'm alive.


Only the living ever die.


So when you open your eyes

Remember the smile

I wore when I lay on the ice

of my frosty skin.

I'm NOT a vampire!

(I'm not even scared of fire)!

My heart is yours to lose.

So when I forget the truth,

Will I forget you?

Or will I die?


I don't know if you'll make the funeral,

Just promise you'll try.


I know you'll bring me back to life.

Author's Note

I think maybe I let my honesty get in the way of poetry. I took a lot of the lines from unfinished songs of mine.
I would love to hear what you think. :)

How can honesty get in the way of poetry? I mean, I understand, but sometimes the best poetry is honest.

Anyway, IRONICALLY, I was helping in a sixth grade classroom, the teacher was trying to explain irony to this difficult little boy.
She said, "Mike, irony is when is when something happens how you wouldn't normally expect it to, and is usually in the form of coincidence."
Mike: "Actually, it's like an epic fail, but... with a politically correct name." He smirked an went back to his seat as the teacher stood for a moment, trying to process what just happened.

Great poem, by the way. :)

Well written and so emotional. I feel like you were writing about a lost lover and treasuring their things.

PS: oh yeah i must tell you here i like irony in the fact that it makes one think, and one can see the bigger picture, which is what you've done right here!

I think you should think about things a little more then write. I see a spark in you, you are in need of finding it yourself. It takes time to write something great so take the time. Very nice write overall. I am sorry if I am to opinionative.
