Hahaa yeah, just seen your blog. I do recognise you

Forgotten Beauty

When the fleet of rage in a man
lives longer than it should
it gets too comfortable.
Eventually It burns out the desire to live.

They say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder
Well death lies in the tongue its owner

You forgot to tell the world
You are tired
of just existing under its shabby roof
But deep down
your body is scared of dying

You wake up
Tugging on the walls of your own skin
Engulfed with rage
But laughter creeps in,
When your in a room full of people
Your eyes engaged
Yet disengaged

With tears that dry up so fast
Its difficult to remember
The last time you cried
Even though its right now.

You seem to have forgotten that
Death is not always deceased flesh,
Pulled teeth, or a silent heart or
cold skin, cold feet, clay skin.
Death are those words you speak to yourself
That gun you dream of holding to your head
Those drugs with death in powder form
Waiting to give your nose its last breath.
That height you imagine yourself falling from
In your head
Replaying the impact of your body hitting the floor
And hitting the floor
And hitting the floor
Replaying the image of your mum hitting the door
And hitting the door
And hitting the door
To no response
When a body hangs 2 feet from the ground
I will take comfort in the lie that
You just wanted to be closer to the sky.

You forgot
That you are lightening beautiful
straight out of the sky beautiful
You were never alone,
It raining
See the clouds are crying with you beautiful
The sun is smiling with you beautiful
The wind just tried to tickle you beautiful
You were not created with sand
Just to crumble beautiful
Stop fighting wars with your body
If was made exactly for its use beautiful
You have a talent and purpose
Why did you forget you were beautiful?

When a body hangs 2 feet from the ground
I will take comfort in the lie
You just wanted to be closer to the sky.

Why did you forget you are beautiful?
