Today's the Day I Stopped Thinking About You

And the thought

Of you just escaped.

And the words

I love you

Seem to have caught a sickness.

Was it a mistake?

And the thought

Of him just entered.

Those words seem

To have lost

That luster he saw before.

This was a mistake.

Let's Go Away for Awhile

Let's go away for a while

What do you think we should we do?

Should we jump in my car and drive for a mile?

Do you really want me or is your face only youth?

What do you think that we should do?

I could drive you out or take you somewhere

Do you really want me or is your face only youth?

Your eyes look beautiful but I can't see you there

I could drive you out or take you somewhere

But do you want me as your honey?

Your eyes look beautiful but I can't see you there

You're starting to look like you only want money

But do you want me as your honey?

Should we jump in my car and drive for a mile?

You're starting to look like you only want money

Let's go away for a while

Submerge

It's always me, never you

That's dragging you down underwater

And I'm glad that you left me alone

'Cause I broke faster than this mirror

I'm happy that you pick up the phone

But I'm sorry I labeled you dearer. And

It's always me, never you

That's dragging you down underwater

I'm sorry that you were my home

That this attraction would just appear

Because now I can't hear her

You can think I'm styrofoam because

It's always me, never you

Weak

And I hate that I cry, I want this to stop.

But how can I stop some feature

That nature has given me?

The answer is I can't and what makes it worse

Is that I don't want anyone to see me this way.

I can't handle sad stories, I'll admit it.

It's either my heart or my soul

That breaks this bland mask off my face.

Why can't I just have something else

Than this emotion?

I can't handle death, I don't know what it is.

But I know it takes anyone away from you.

Why can't I have a conversation with them

Or at least send a letter to the angels?

Why do I have to fucking move on without them?

I can't handle being alone, but it's so ironic

How I'm writing this by myself.

Everyone feels so far away, I despise

Being so alone, but I'm frequently lonely.

It doesn't look like it'll end.

I can't handle finally loving somebody

Knowing that they might die sooner or later.

Or if I don't know them, I'm pouring my heart

For somebody I can't let go of.

That makes me soft, doesn't it?

And I know I can't stop these tears,

I can't stop a heart from hurting.

I want to tell someone how I'm feeling,

So they can know what I'm experiencing.

If they want, they can give me a hug or something.

I don't want those close to feel bad

But I don't feel the same way that they can.

I feel weak when I want to be strong.

And I often don't feel myself and I want it stop

But is it bad to ignore what makes you human?

Life

Life isn't simple yes-no decisions. It's something we do and don't know. I don't know everything or you. And no one knows the future. But I know that life's given you everything. And if you're alive, you haven't lost everything. Remember memories, cherish family, make mistakes and keep moving forward.

Ø

and i wonder if it snows in norway

or at least you miss me

cause our legs are often broken

but you don't seem to mind anyway

these brief moments that we had

lack the luster of a token

and i've almost forgotten you exist

every time i repeat everyday

i bet that you're happy somewhere

despite everything that's happened

and i'd rather have you happy

than have you remember a pebble in the river

the sky has no limits or ways

and the soft breeze has spoken

i can't find the words

to make you smile

and to make you feel

like you belong

and i can't find the stamp

to impress my seal

i've been horrible to one another

and for this long

and i can't say i'm sorry

for it doesn't mean anything

all i can portray is silence

for words can't sing a song

but my feelings aren't a fake ring

and words can't hide wounds that heal

Chapter 5 of Trivia
Written by sheldon_andre

Sign of Life

Immersed within this vacuous liquid

I can see you but I can't feel you

And the façade that is irradiating outside

Is only a possibility of the chance I step outside

I don't want a part of this fucked up reality

Am I floating or am I dead?

There doesn't seem to be a clear ending

The only thing that I know is that I'm stuck

Immersed within this vacuous liquid

And everything around me is still

I can hear everything but I can't see shit

I feel so lonely that going over everything

I can see you but I can't feel you

There seems to be an atmosphere outside

But I don't know where it leads

Seems like it's only myself stuck in this pool

And the façade that is irradiating outside

And the atmosphere looks like an urban artform

To say it looks univiting would be an understatement

But what I percieve in front of my eyes

Is only a possibility of the chance I step outside

And if it doesn't look nice

Or if there's a reason to choke

I don't want to go back in but

I don't want a part of this fucked up reality

Chapter 4 of Trivia
Written by sheldon_andre in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Fountains

Clouds in the sky,

The water feels like you can say hi,

So close your eyes and count to ten

When you drop a penny in the fountain

You have nothing to lose at all,

The mark will establish once it makes the fall,

And you'll wonder if the wish came true before then,

When you drop a penny in the fountain

And I wish that someday, we will get better,

No more means for a doctor's letter,

And you might wish that this evil will end

When you drop a penny in the fountain

We were all kids back in our time,

We were innocent and that would've been fine,

I'll take this turn around the bend

When you drop a penny in the fountain

Written by sheldon_andre in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Hug

I'm a pussy for kisses, so I'll give you a hug

My face'll enfold on the hill that is your shoulder

And I'll wrap my arms around your body

I'll never let go when you mean the most

My face'll enfold on the hill that is your shoulder

I'm pulling you in so much so the world can let go

I'll never let go when you mean the most

And if the wave washes over, I'll cry for you

I'm pulling you in so much so the world can let go

Just enough to gasp, not enough to respire

And if the wave washes over, we can both cry

I'll give you my warmth, if there's any left

Just enough to gasp, not enough to respire

I don't want you to slip through my arms

I'll give you my warmth, if there's any left

I'm too distracted by the thought of you

I don't want you to slip through my arms

You're mine, you belong to me

I'm too distracted by the thought of you

And I don't want to let go

You're mine, you belong to me

All mine for the moment, only right here

And I don't want to let go

You can call your friend later
