Society

A Poem by Lizardo
"

The name sounds like the poem is a serious thing, but its far less than that lol

"

I throw parties

You throw darts

I waited around 5 A.M

Waking up from my sleepy dream

Taking a shower (Getting dressed)

I had my high hopes like any other day

But when you wake up, the reality you though beautiful

Was another well played trick by your mind trying to make your emotions right

We wake up thinking that this day was going to be different than the one before

But Its the opposite, (Well played Universe)

I have to see yet another day where people care more for looks than what's inside

If my life keeps going like this, I'll become crazy like a little bird flying in its sleep


I throw cupcakes

Your throw poison

As if you can't see me happy

I get up, you make me fall

You make me think


I finished school again

(Oh god what a relief )

Finally back home, talking to a girl that I like

everyone changes but she was the one that I felt more than anyone

Another evening to study for a Test to get high grades

I sometimes wonder if we care more for the score than the knowledge of it

Another bad day at the office, yet another day in my life

As night comes knocking by my door asking if it can sleep beside me

To what I respond: "Oh well who cares, just come in and sit beside me"


I tried something

You destroyed it

You can't just leave me alone

Do you?

Like If I cared for your comments

You play dirty

I play easy

You destroy people, with your comments

Making them go to your side

You seem to be "Normal"

But you are far from being a Mortal

Your little game, will come down

As your people will realize to think for themselves 


This is our little game

Our little dance

I Give hearts

You destroy them

I give thoughts

You control them

I give happiness

You give Sorrow

I throw parties

You throw darts

This is really good description of society. I'm sure so many people can agree to this! I think this applies to many people and the simplicity and boredom of the repetitive cycle.

You have good intentions, the world shoots you down
I have been there on the small local stage. the bigger city stage and the military stage
I no longer have expectations of others, only of myself

i am still kicking
i had an ex who threw darts, even 11 years after we were divorced...no reason for that...but it happens...

i like the humorous way you portrayed this...dark humor but nevertheless, a smile through the pain.

Thank you so much Jacob, its good seeing you, thanks for the review :)
seems like this is written with an antagonist in mind...

a duality exists within the poem that makes it like a mirror, or two sides of a coin
it adds an interesting twist to your poetry, and gives it the sense of having been written by more than one pen
