Sail/Low/Down

A Poem by Gaige
"

Just some jumbled stuff I wrote down on my facebook listening to MC rut and Awolnation.

"
Deny me, for I am want
Hate me, for I am love
Remembered, forgotten
Blame me for your hopes and dreams
Come home to me tonight

Show me all the things you wish you'd never seen 
Teach me how to become your most beloved enemy

Cascading shadows over what never was and shall never be
A solemn lover's cry, left in the wrong, left behind, let down
Trapped, a mind resembling a windowless box
Your direction lost
The key to a lock no one will ever know
Sleep soundly, dream until you can never let go

Open this chest
Heartless is what you'll find beneath this mechanical breast
Who have I become? 
An inhuman calculation, an imbalanced sum
Cogs and pistons
Flawless, cynical iron and steel
A man afraid to die
So I make myself unable to feel

I just thought the symbolism I put into these was a tad cool. These are from my mind rather than my heart, which is where most of my writing comes from, if that doesn't sound too lame. :]

Very nice. I'm still trying to find out what it is your are symbolizing. It'll probably come to me later. Good job.

I love this!!!! It's really, well I guess powerful!!!! I love some the words you used especially the first stanza "Deny me, for I am want. Hate me, for I am love." You had me hooked from those two lines!!!!! Great poem!!!!!
