The Familiar Cliffs

The Familiar Cliffs

A Poem by A Lost Man Found

started out a song, ended up a poem. tell me what you think

Why do the beautiful ones cry?
Why do all the best ones lie?
Why does the hurt on the inside,
Never see the sunlight,
Why does it matter to me?
Cause Only in darkness I see.....

How Beautiful, These Devils are.
How Wonderful, to be beneath these stars.
With an Angel, Filled with what I Lack,
I Have all I need, I will never turn back.

When My Angel cries, I die Inside,
Cause She gives Me a reason to live.
I Give her my heart, cause i have no mind
left, oh the bliss it is......

So turn down the lights, and let me inside,
the mysteries of your eyes, i wipe the tears that you've cried
with the sleeve that my hearts on, say bye to the bygones
right now..... and I'll show you how.

to release all that pain, to release all that hurt,
don't try and fight it, it'll only get worse.
Just give it to me, and i'll take the burns
with the burden of being, that world on my shoulders.
but those shoulders don't matter, cause all that I'm after
is to just get my arms around you. Ain't it the truth.....

To wake up to an ocean,
I've found in her eyes,
A beautiful notion,
Such a sweet surprise.

With Lips Like a drug,
I crave another hit,
Lifting the feet I've drug,
For so long it seems endless.

I Can't stand this sweet addiction,
It seems too good to be true,
I find harmony and confliction, between me and you.
It can't be this perfect, i just can't accept.....

could this be love?

i didn'tcome to fall, It didn't matter after all,
I fell to my sin, and in the end.....

The temptation of flesh got the win. :)

Yes, I can hear the musical undertones in this. I thought it was very well written with a sense of longing and questioning of feeling. Nicely done.

Why won't these demons be quiet? I just want peace. I have wanted the eternal peace for as long as I can remember, but feel like a f*****g p***y because I can't bring myself to do it. Sometimes I wis.. more..
