Second Chance

Recommended Posts

The Moonlight shines off the water

Reflecting the beauty from the Heavens

The starlight so bright, bringing me to my knees

On this pier, I am alone,

Why am I here?

 

 

I was born to lead

But I chose thrills to seek

I lost my faith, lost my name

Prayers consisted of needles and flame

Life seems a desolate wasteland

But I was born to lead

 

 

With the clouds overhead, painted black by the sky

I think of where I've been, became friends with Suicide

A bottle of pills, and a bottle of jack

Drowned by emptiness, I could feel nothing

But now I feel my heart, they've brought me back

 

 

No thought in mind, only broken hearted

My eyes were sunken, life was consuming

I rose from the dead, and corruption erupted

Scars all over, blood on my sheets

I stood at the edge, now sinking, now drifting away

 

 

Its funny how you have to lose it all

Just to realize what you had

Now that my pockets are empty

And You've seen my hand

Won't you run with me to the end?

 

 

I was born to lead

But I chose thrills to seek

I lost my faith, lost my name

Prayers consisted of needles and flame

But now I'm home, and I stand strong

Cuz I was born to lead

 

 

So just run with me

Thanks! I used to have a couple dozen posted here, but felt kind of strange being the only one sharing. There was also a near-publication experience that led to a mass deletion of my poetry from the boards.

Honestly, it's more fun being able to bounce pointers, notes, etc. off other writers than just writing. Having people enjoy it is a great feeling, but without tips I'm not sure if I'm missing a small detail (sometimes just one word) that can make a good poem/song into a great one. That's when I know the reader can be truly entranced by my words.

That's just me, though. :grin:

I noticed you write in a lyrical style (mostly) & you're very good at it. I used to write lyrics for bands back in the 80/90's but not that well.

Much talent!! :thumbsup:
