Welcome to THINK POETRY


A Song


Oh do not wanton with those eyes,
Lest I be sick with seeing;
Nor cast them down, but let them rise,
Lest shame destroy their being:
O, be not angry with those fires,
For then their threats will kill me;
Nor look too kind on my desires,
For then my hopes will spill me;
O, do not steep them in thy tears,
For so will sorrow slay me;
Nor spread them as distract with fears,
Mine own enough betray me.

-- Ben Jonson

"Green Targets"

All this time
All this time I have been down
I have been down
I’ve figured out
Figured out what the problem is
If you were gone
And I survived
Without your hate
I wouldn’t want to die
Oh my life wouldn’t be
Twisted with sadness and irony
If you were gone
Peace and love would live on
^
I
Bash my head
Until I see red
Wondering what I did this time
To be placed in your mind
As a irritation
Unwanted complication
Undesired conversations
Drawback at your location
I wish that I didn’t have to give my name out
So when people turn I could leave without hearing my name in their mouths
All this time
All this time I have been down
I’ve figured out
Figured out what the problem is
You…
You
^
If it’s not my skin
You hate me for blending in
If it’s not my voice
You hate me for making a choice
Instead of coming to you so you can look down upon me
Asking for you to like me
No
I rather go on with my head high
Finding how to survive and it pisses people off
When you don’t give them the attention they need to toss you off
Disregarded
Oh this is how this whole goddamn thing
Got started friends
You are not like me
Instead of bonding
They found it easier to hate
^
I will never give you the satisfaction of getting to me permanently
I will never let you make me cry again when I lay down to sleep
I will never let your eyes chase my strength away
I will never let you into my heart where all of compassion and love stays
I’ll give some
Never enough
No one will get to hurt me the same way again…
Yet my eyes receive tears after I hit send.

"Handshakes With Plots To Take" NSFW

 

Why did you say that I am lower than what you desire
Oh sugar
I don’t want your petty things
I don’t want what comes with you and a gold ring
Waste of time
And I know all of your lines
Oh listen darling
If you want what I got between my knees play
Play by my rules starting today
Is this what love is
I
Don’t think
So
IDS exposed
I don’t think so
You’ll love me if I’m far from broke
So
When I climb
Assuming that I climb in time
Phone numbers changed and addresses declined
Do I know you as a friend
No bitch I know you as another hand
Understand
That’s your type
Hate me but will make sure the mood is right
Check coming in
Let me make sure that I’m the best enemy friend
*
I
Don’t think
So
IDS exposed
I don’t think so
Smiles faked
Conversations taped
Plots of gaining a take
Incorporated into every handshake
You fake
Helping so when I drop you’ll rake more than a fair shake
Mistake
I see you and close we are
Until I show how you can be disconnected now
Safely remove the hardware
Just not to place in your underwear
Escape
Alt Ctrl delete your face
From the ground
Another flower escapes the rough and tough pound
*
Plots of gaining a take
Incorporated into every handshake
You fake
Plots of gaining a take
Incorporated into every handshake
You fake
Plots of gaining a take
Incorporated into every handshake
You fake
Plots and prayers of taking my place
Show your face

"Shadows We Cannot Run From" NSFW

 

Shadow I see you everywhere I go
Haunting me following looking for info
Always reading my lips
Waiting for me to slip up and make promises
If I could remove you I would
I swear that all you do is take away good
Leech you stain
I know where you hang
Right by my ears
Telling me that I should fear all that is out of my control
Sadly I’ve been listening for so long
That I think that even my breathing is wrong
Holding on to slippery hands
Waiting to drop me right before land
Time has come so what should be done
Give into you giving up turning to no one
Or should I raise my fist
Banging it into you screaming bitch
This is the moment I fear
Talk isn’t anything where is my assault is it near
My assault is it near
Fuck my faults
Throw your salt
Still I walk determined
To cancel your sermons
/
I just wanted peace from you
And look what you gave
You made me a slave
To everything that causes me pain
I awake
Wishing I stayed asleep
My mind is
Not what it should be
Oh I fight
But how many more rounds
Blood dripping all around
The towel is covered with glitter
Seen my eyes as a perfect picture
The final line
The answer to every rhyme
To my inability to cry
Is this what I’ve been brought into
This is not what I want pursue
Fire doesn’t scare me as much as coming back and starting again
Cutting out
Numbers and mouths
I hide further beneath
It’s not what I wanted it’s not what I dreamed
If you think
I live to love my suffering
Stop wondering you’re wrong
Be gone
Be GONE

"Ballad Of Married Roommates"

 

Oh you want to be my savior now
After I have figured your game out
I don’t want this anymore
I am trying to replace what you stand for
With someone more bold that functions in making hearts new restored
Passive wishes piss me off and you like to pretend
That staying the same is so good and fine in no way strange
You won’t do anything and refuse to change
Just talk talk talk same things remain
Oh and I’m so damn tired of hearing your immature complaints
Drained from your I love you dear
I can’t hardly stand it when you come near
I can’t find anyone else
That will take me now as myself
I’m fucking damaged grey sky and grey clouds
When you say that you love me I almost vomit out loud
You don’t even know what I stand for or about
I have enemies that know me more than you without a doubt
Sex doesn’t change the mind
I’m too past gone to put my emotions into you now when we grind
Am I free with you or is this like a true lies find
Stop asking what’s wrong with me you already know the deal
Unwilling to improve yourself or what your feel
I’m not perfect but damn it I stand right or wrong
I feel that you’re the opposite
Change in you is gone
Content staying how you are please stop that shit
It’s absurd and I’ve finally ran out of words to hide that my heart is in bits
Now you know it must be bad
Silencing a poet is a hard thing to actually grab
The exit calls and maybe I should go ahead and exit this nexus
Alone I have progressed it’s amazing and still you play childish games
Ring around my nerves or whatever causes shame
I analyze my actions frame by frame
Making sure I’m not the one responsible filled with blame
Sometimes I want to yell out no wonder I’m half insane
I need more help
You’re too busy ignoring everyone including yourself to a point
What can I do
What more can I say
If you only knew how many times the gas pedal whispered take me away
But as I am where could I stay
The brakes holler don’t use me and I’ll find a place
Images I can’t erase
Blood and bones spilled in my throat I taste
You have my questioning myself what do I really want to chase
It’s sounds too damn complicated start over erase
The piano plays along and I dance to its song
I can’t be better so why give a thought to moving on
Go through the emotions and it’s better when you dance slow
She’ll wrap her hands around your neck really slow
Smiling as your breath cannot connect to where it should go
The brain
The song speeds up as she starts flirting and without strain
I feel nothing pumping in my veins
It’s her or you and I’m so fucking used confused
That I don’t know who to choose
Leaving what I know or being with you
The song is played on repeat and I cannot move

"Programs Running All Over The Place" - "False Positive"

Desperate they move like snakes on tile
How much longer will people stay blinded
Christianity filled with force
Eyes bound
However now common sense makes it rounds
Atheism in thinking minds to never be shot down
I’ve gained ground stepping out of their light
To see that it was artificial wrong tint not bright
When the time comes not if the time comes I’ll stand in formation
Of those willing to pay the price of freedom for its transportation
Death initiation
No longer scared of death’s life ending sensation
I’m telling you that your bible if real should be flipped
We are the ones waiting to be taken away from bullshit
Listen to the words of our leaders as they blindly follow nonsense yeah nonsense believers
Black sheep I think not
You can’t lead us
I follow no one unlike you
Following whoever promises that they have the truth
The warnings in your Christian bible about false prophets
Look in the mirror and then check the church’s profits
Every day when I watch the news and listen to lies of progress
I get a little more angry as I should I be
Tell the truth and restore unity
As it is I can’t speak with you and you can’t see
It’s simple math they add and add but in parentheses
It’s negative infinity times negative infinity
Do that first
Be sure at the end to check your work

Wow, Edmond, I really like that "Another Kingdom of Dirt". It conveys something very private, yet universally human. You've captured the essence of something elusive to most of us.
Comment by Edmond on December 8, 2010 at 10:54pm
"Another Kingdom Of Dirt"

I am liar
I’ll tell myself that I’ll try
Just to fool myself
Into letting my real feelings hide
Oh and I know that it’s wrong
But how else will I get to sleep
The shadows recede into the closet
Tomorrow they’ll have a peek
Comment by Atheist Exile on December 2, 2010 at 9:47pm
Hey doone,

I interpreted, "THERE WAS EARTH INSIDE THEM", as I've commented elsewhere, completely different than what the poet was actually writing about: life in a concentration camp. I really loved the poem (despite its being translated from German) yet didn't even understand it. I just filled in the details through the prism of my own experience.
Comment by Ryan E. Hoffman on December 2, 2010 at 9:03pm
Bukowski is a huge influence of mine. This poem is the ultimate for me.

P.S.

In case you don't notice, the rhyming pattern for the verses is:

a
a b
c
c b
