Crazy On U

Crazy on you,
going crazy on you,
going crazy because of you,
let me go crazy on you,
Crazy on you.
Can't you see what you do to me?.
One minute I love you the next I want to choke you.
I can't remember who I am anymore,
I become a different person whenever we get into it.
I snap every time you say something stupid,
I feel like a half wit while at the same time I just can't get enough of you.
Crazy on you,
going crazy on you,
going crazy because of you,
let me go crazy on you,
Crazy on you.
Jealousy overcomes me as it electrifies my anger.
I snap,
Wait who's that chick?!, I slap her thinking the worst.
What are we doing?
Fighting and yelling in eachother's face then making love crazily while promising to never ever fight again, but it just keeps going in cycles.
You make me go psycho,
then you make me go mental.
It feels horrible, but at the same time it feels good.
Crazy on you,
going crazy on you,
going crazy because of you,
let me go crazy on you,
Crazy on you.
I love you, but at the same time I hate you.
You thrill me, but there are times when you kill me with your stupidity, but you're the only one that really gets me.
I know this is no good for us.
Maybe it's lust, maybe it's love, I don't even know, but it's torturous.
The hell is wrong with you?,
The hell is wrong with me?,
Why do we get like this?.
Crazy on you,
going crazy on you,
going crazy because of you,
let me go crazy on you,
Crazy on you.
But baby I must confess that you are really the only one that can put up with me and my crazy life.
You're so beautiful,
Wonderful,
And incredible, I love you so.
You pick me up when I fall,
And I guess if some other girl were to try to steal you away I'd probably never feel the same ever again.
Loving me isn't very easy and I know this.
But I want you here with me.
See you're the Peter to my Wendy,
You're the Aladdin to my Jasmine,
You're the Superman to my Lois Lane,
You're the Marshall Mathers to my Slim Shady,
You're the Simba to my Nala,
You're the insane to my crazy,
You're the disturbed to my weird,
You're the Michael to my Janet,
You're the sun to my moon,
You're the afternoon to my night time.
You're my doctor, I need your medicine,
You're my counselor, I need your guidance,
You're my lover, I need your love.
Crazy on you,
going crazy on you,
going crazy because of you,
let me go crazy on you,
Crazy on you.
What are we doing?,
having a shouting match till I start leaving then you start crying, begging for me to come back then I give in and stay once again, every day we do this as tears come and go constantly. When will we find some peace?.
Crazy on you,
going crazy on you,
going crazy because of you,
let me go crazy on you,
Crazy on you.

So Done

So you broke my heart
You made me fall apart and did all the things you wanted to do.
You thought you were slick,
Thought you could get away with this shit and first it worked
I was crying and crying and crying and crying for you, but now here's what I think about you
Fuck you!

I'm so done with you
I'm so, so done with you
I am so, so done with you
So fuck, fuck you and that bitch too!
I'm so, so, so done with you!
F-U-C-K Y-O-U I am S-O D-O-N-E

I'm so done with you
I'm so, so done with you
I am so, so done with you
So fuck, fuck you and that bitch too!
I'm so, so, so done with you!
F-U-C-K Y-O-U I am S-O D-O-N-E

When things were going good things were going great, but when things got rough it turned World War III and you ducked when the bombs hit.
You weren't a man you were a boy that didn't really love me.
You laughed in my face and called me crazy well see how crazy I am when you watch me leave with that man over there.

I'm so done with you
I'm so, so done with you
I am so, so done with you
So fuck, fuck you and that bitch too!
I'm so, so, so done with you!
F-U-C-K Y-O-U I am S-O D-O-N-E

I'm so done with you
I'm so, so done with you
I am so, so done with you
So fuck, fuck you and that bitch too!
I'm so, so, so done with you!
F-U-C-K Y-O-U I am S-O D-O-N-E

Could've been something,
We could of been something, but now we ain't nothing so now you're just nothing to me.
Since you wanted to mess around and toy with my feelings I'll be fooling around and have my own fun.
I ain't losing my mind, I'm ok
I'm fine
I'm just so fucking fed up with this!
And I'm so over it and all of it!

I'm so done with you
I'm so, so done with you
I am so, so done with you
So fuck, fuck you and that bitch too!
I'm so, so, so done with you!
F-U-C-K Y-O-U I am S-O D-O-N-E

I'm so done with you
I'm so, so done with you
I am so, so done with you
So fuck, fuck you and that bitch too!
I'm so, so, so done with you!
F-U-C-K Y-O-U I am S-O D-O-N-E

I'm so done with you
I'm so, so done with you
I am so, so done with you
So fuck, fuck you and that bitch too!
I'm so, so, so done with you!
F-U-C-K Y-O-U I am S-O D-O-N-E

Cheater

I wasn't gonna do this...but fuck it †
Let's do this... † †
† †  
You had me fooled yeah that's true, † †
Yeah you think out played me maybe so, but now I know all about you and what you did to me. † †
Been actin' like a fuckin' man hoe who thought he could've tricked her, her, and her into your bed. † †
Tried to sleep with me on the first date but you know I wasn't bout that thot life. † †
I'm not dumb, but the stupidest thing I ever done was taking your sketchy ass back. † †
Blame it on love, † †
Blame it on lust, † †
Blame it on the devil,  
but I'll take it all as the biggest regret 'cause you caused me nothin' but pain. Boy, you're so vain I bet you think this is about you don't you?. † †
Bitch you guessed right, † †
And guess what I'm bout ready to fight 'cause Rocky's fucking fed up with these bitches talkin' all this bullshit bout me and you. † †
Claimin' I'm ya baby mama, got knocked up 'cause I wanted ya to stay? † †
bitch please! † †  
I don't need you † †
And † †  
I don't want you. † †
I'm gettin' paid and doin' my own fucking thing, † †
I got a family and friends that loves me and looks out for me when you only just wanted one thing from me. † †
So don't act like a two faced, lying ass mother fucker when you know better since I remember when I found the Trojan in your room and all you did was joke about it like the player you were. † †
I should've slit your fucking throat when I had the chance, but instead believed every fucking word you said now I'm sure all you wanted was to get into my pants and leave my ass behind like I was fucking trash. † †
But I'll just spare ya unfaithful ass and get this cash. † †
Let you see me pass on by as I slay better than any hoe you ever fucked around with. † †
Love to hear you say you miss me when really I ain't the one that'll be missing you † †
'Cause I'll be leaving with my ex tonight. † †
Sex him and love him because he deserves it when all you tried to do was use me and abuse me emotionally. But I'll fuck you mentally and let you evaporate into shit, † †
Hit every main vein till you feel each bit of fucking pain I ever felt, better yet take a machete to it and chop ya brain into pieces and eat it like I was fucking Jeffery Dahmer. † †
Don't come back crying to me, beggin' on ya knees for me. † †
I wouldn't take you back even if you were crawling on all fours, bleeding and screaming. † †
I would just smile and put a bullet in your temple and pull the mother fuckin' trigger. † †
He should of known better than to top it all off with hitting on two of my friends and neither of em wanted your scandalous ass. † †
You could've had class but instead kept leaving with trash. † †
Wanted to dog me out for some ass when at the start you would be talking about † †  
wanting marriage and kids, † †
wanting me to play wifey in your home and live together like bitch really?. † †
You only wanted to keep me under your thumb and make me out like I was the dumb one. † †  
But you ain't nothin' but a bum in disguise that tries to get in between every hoe's thighs like a gynecologist. † †
Let's also talk about your behavior and how you won't even lift a fucking finger for a woman to help her out. † †
You ain't a man, † †
You can't even be a fucking gentleman for the one you said you cared about!. † †
Now tell me were you just bullshitting all this time? † †
Thought so! † †
Now you wanna call me emotional and 'extra' just because all I ever did was try to show you my true feelings but you'd act like a robot that didn't have any at all. † †
Now you're on a mission to make me fall but bitch one thing bout me is once I fall † †
I come back up swinging so get ready to catch these fists like we were Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor. † †
Tried to fuck me over but I'll fuck you, make you take it till you can't fucking stand † †
and tell me is it worth it being a cheater?.

glutton

 
you cut your teeth on my innocence
honed your blade on my bones  
and with that same sharp edge
you carved strips from my soul
bleeding me dry of my beauty
and still...
 
I basked in the heat of your kiss
abasing myself for your twisted pleasure
as you savaged my most tender bits
gorging yourself on my sorrow
delighting in opening my veins
peeling back skin with your razored tongue
leaving me prostrate in my weakening state
and still...
 
I begged you to hold me
wept in silent shuddering agony
starved myself to fit in your life
abhorred my own broken reflection
slashed the canvas of my heart
you never took pity
so skilled in the art of deflection
it was always me at fault
until...
 
I built my fortress without you
dragged my shattered remains
behind walls engraved with your name
some of them are there still
a monument to a very dark past
where every nightmare is about you
and outside those cells of despair
I live
I thrive
I laugh
I care
and yes
I do still love you

Tainted Love

All I wanted to tell you was that I loved you,
But that kind of love was really tainted and
Extremely dangerous. Where we once grew
Is where the weeds are now. Understand
That I used to bask in every hug and kiss
Because I did not know when our final end
Was going to come. I am not going to miss
Anything about this love. I am on the mend
From your tainted love. All of the emotions
Gets tossed aside because you did not care,
So why should I? I can follow all the motions
Of the rocky waves and breathe in salty air
Because that is where this took me. I hope
To be screaming, ďfuck youĒ into the empty
World. Tainted love is let go of like a rope
Because it is feeling too heavy and hefty.

From the Ash, you really captured how abusive relationship feels.  The debilitating sensation of feeling chained to a creature who only desires harm.  Very captivating.

Every post so far has been exquisite.

Your Private Hell

 
The Things You Have Done , In Your Private Hell ,
The Words That You Speak , The Stories You Tell ,
The Ways That You Weave The Web Of Your Fate ,
Show All Too Clearly , It Is You That You Hate...

My Forgiveness Is Not What You Need ,
You Pierce Your Own Heart , Just So You Bleed ,
You Twist Your Own Knife Under Your Skin ,
You Beg For A Friend , Yet Let No One In...

You Cry Out To Enter , And Then Shut The Door ,
You Want Me To Be A Doormat On Your Dirty Floor ,
To Break All Hearts Is Your Passion Play ,
To Go Where You Will And Do What You May...

To Cut Off All Feeling , Do What You Must ,
For If All Is Betrayal , Then Who Can You Trust ?
Once You Are Hurt , The Fear Is The Pain ,
And Lies Become Real , Just To Stay Sane...

"I Ask You Now , You Talkin' To Me ?
Better Keep On A Walkin' , And Let Me Be ,
I Got A Razor Tongue And Empty Eyes ,
If You Get Hurt Don't Be Surprised..."

You Think You Scare Me , I've Seen Much Worse ,
Some Minds Are A Graveyard , Some Bodies A Hearse ,
Some Eyes Are Pure Darkness , No Soul Do They Keep ,
No Light Do They Shine , Nor Tears Do They Weep...

"I Ask You Again , To Leave Me Alone ,
To Reap What Is Mine , In All I Have Sown ,
To Tear , And Rip , And Cut , And Rend ,
I Cease To Begin , And Begin All To End"

And Yet Once More , I Extend My Hand ,
As Only An Offer , And Yet Never Demand ,
What Others Have Done So You Feel So Betrayed ,
The Cards On The Table , The Cards That Been Played...

I Ask You To Look Deep Within Your Inside ,
In All Those Dark Places You Play Seek And Hide ,
And Just To Own All Things You Have Done ,
Stand And Be Strong , No Need More To Run !

When the light slipped

 

You are here
In my bruises sipping dark
thorned thoughts

You are here
In the pain of my sored echo
Behind my eyelids

You weave a seamless
corset tight around me
I escape the flapping
of your anger

I escape the vampiric cusp
of your longing
To eclipse my sun

Traumatic love
You gave me
Death was my bridesmaid

I weep for life
Chorus of
my visioned
Quest

Listing to
this broken chello
In my chest

Anatomy of Love

Eros has rattled my bones
waxing your spirit
through snakeskin
I travelled rotating moons
entering realms of Beloved
Sharing enticed journey
trough eyelids closed
beyond numb night
Venusian fossiles
between space
of our heartbeat
Until the lotus
opened Her loins
in waning silence
perhaps,never
will we breathe
 deeper
than this

Reincarnation--of Love

Hieroglyphs ago
When stone mattered
when art was but a sign away

You wrote my name in alabaster
Through eyes yet unseen
I knew you

Then
and remember you
Now

Embalmed
You lay before me
Smothered
mummification

of
Love

Ashen tears
I
cried

I lay in the casket
of your broken heart
The relic rain sang
a song of solitude

Moonlight sailed
the stolen sea
Sailed the ovary
of blinding stars

Their light purified me

Just Another Work of FictionÖ

Seeking love in long distance phone calls
Webs weaved in light of the shadow of a third eye view †
Reclusive and yet exposed †
My heart is a marionette to puppeteer my voice †
†  
Small time stages in cafťs forgotten †
The applause is a hand given †
With accolades like a charity to stroke ego †
A petting zoo †
†  
Flattery for the marketing of self †
Faceless for a line I drop to inspire †
As my words get more action with imagination than I do †
What are seconds of love but ripples in a hurricane? †
As we associate fandom with genuine affection †
†  
Raised by the famous, all we are is orphans at heart †
Further lost for Hollywood ideals †
Like entertainment as a substitute for living †
Marketing artificial values †
Finding kindred bonds forged of brokenness †
Where scars are more compatible than smiles †
†  
Bankrupt for the imaginary means of wishful thinking †
Writing a budget for debts to break even with the past †
Leveling off at the present †
While the hope of a futureís summit †
Robs beauty from my current valley †
†  
Writing a recipe for drama †
Radioactive chemical instability †
In minds like experiments on lab rat children †
I once dreamt of love, but that love eludes me †
For affections traded to the ashes †
Of a past that steals my attention †
†  
Who are you, my non-existent you? †
†  
Craving something that I never knew †
When a Father is harder to believe in than God †
Or a lover proves the pain of absence †
Despite having never been true †
Some longings it seems weíre born with †
Others are an acquired taste for virtue †
Whether love, death, or a culmination of the two †
Till my humanity goes into remission †
Heavily sedated by the hope of realizing you †
†  
Dreams like postdated rubber reality checks †
No currency flows through the channels of a dry river †
Caught between comatose and delusion †
I sleep walk in search of myself †
And time has a bounty on my head †
To make the most of every second †
As I breathe so is it that I decay †
†  
I donít want to die owing the world a legacy †
Burning midnight oils as a lantern in confinement †
What good is a solitary light †
But a flicker dancing with shadows †
I lie to my doubts that leave me breathless †
For these holes in the lungs of my faith †
Coming alive for the thrill of tempting fate †
†  
I want to live for something †
But I feel like Iím killing risk in pursuit of safety †
Like an alibi of self-defense for preservation †
Missing out on the reward †
Of living for something greater than myself †
†  
What has life become? †
But the pressure to perform to validate existence †
Or prove myself suitable to entice a muse †
Worth the write of a never-ending love song †
†  
Who are you, my nonexistent you? †
†  
Better letters written, conversation abandoned †
If the book is always better than the film †
Then best words are scripts for a lying prince †
When romance finds us dreaming, ignorant bliss †
We wake up with knives in our backs †
As every heartbreak starts with a stolen kiss †
†  
Love me when itís easiest to want to †
Faking devotion at altar calls and vows †
To ceremony the witness of hairline commitments †
Every picture like the evidence of ghosts †
When souls are captured in the framework †
Of a happiness long passed away †
†  
NaÔve is just another word for blindness †
Whether love is without the eyes to discern a flaw †
Or bitterness turns to dread the memory †
Of what all we thought we saw †
†  
I am poor yet I act my riches till I see them †
Awaiting the day I find out what itís all for †
Marketing self-worth like false advertising †
Seeking the lies of perfection †
Whether of myself or my non-existent you †
Despite the ways we mess it up †
I still believe that love is trueÖ.

Love Is On My Bucket List

How do I put my life into words?  
When all I find are walls at every turn  
And desire is unborn potential  

Dying in the womb  
Looking for God in the eyes of a psycho  
For some semblance of innocence  
I am a soil comprised of two seeds  
At a standstill for material worth  
I resign progress to possession  
As if all I own indicates how far Iíve come  
Like a journey embarked on  
Landmarks of emotion captured  

TV romance to sell breath to my lungs  
Respirating on the life support of ideals  
Contrasting hues of vibrancy and shadow  
Have I turned my back on the light of the sun?  
Overcast or just closing my eyes  
I marvel in the dark  
Finding more poetry in the past  
Than a future that evades me  

Every moment wasted  
Wanting love but lost for the know how  
Every second granulated, slips away  
Keeping up the appearances of normalcy  
Dead end thoughts  
I pace the floor of my mind  
Locked inside this cell of myself  
Trying to schedule in routine endearments  
Living is on my to-do list, love is on my bucket list  

Saving for recliner getaways for evening escapes  
Houses like designated waiting rooms  
For stowaway families  
In route to make meaning of a graveyard  
Every day is a charade  

Is destiny a product of discovery or guess work?  
Debts like locks with the universal keys of money  
To unshackle from college degree burns  
Incurred where one manís hope is anotherís lie  
Self-advancement is a thriving industry  
With all the promise of no results  

Freshening up, uniformed to cultural buy ins  
Role playing work place color codes  
Replica heartís and threads to camouflage individuality  
Marching in formation of procedure  
Validating consumer existence at the cost of our own  
I am the seller and the buyer  
The bloodline of fluctuating stocks  
While rich men gamble on the projected increase  
Of what Iím sucker to allow my wallet to fall for  

Iím lost in transit  
Striving to take the stage  
Caught between microphones and soapbox blogging  
Losing pennies for free thoughts that go ignored  
Money talks because itís all we hear  
But itís a voice stolen from the mouth of self-worth  
I commute back and forth between beds made  
As I lay in both but only sleep in one  

Bus passes for public transportation  
Crowded with passengers with common destination  
Prostituting time for money to provide the means  
Circling mountains as we climb to false summits  
Yet never seem to reach the precipice  
Yearning to matter, Iíve places to go  
Waiting to become someone to see  
Saving to buy a car in hopes of filling the passengerís seatÖ

Homewreckers Guide To Making Love In A Broken Home

Days away
Have I coerced the virtuous to silence?
When weíre cornered by confessions
And I donít know how to keep my secrets

Off my conscience, to your shame
Yet only noted by those with eyes between the lines
If they can see it at all
What so blatantly glares at you
In my every word

While you speak your nonchalant narratives
My page is a lie detector
Yours is a script that seems as if to tell true
But rather is a vain attempt to hide
When in truth, what youíre not saying reveals you

Back track to acquaintance
Ignore the fingerprints I left on your heart
When thereís traces of truth in every lie I tell
Iím no better for never knowing a truer love in flesh
When I consider the scales

A substitute for connection with affectionless touch
Apathetic to passion mimicked by excitement and euphoria
Is all we experience what equates to chemistry?
Like test tube minds and reactors at the core of us all
As to measure a man after his thoughts or size him up in more ways than one?
Seems thereís more than one way to interpret ďhanging brainĒ

Like fifty shades of grey matter, torture contrast to pleasures
All we are is feel good drugs for better highs
And ranked after a bed like paraphernalia
Laced with the residue of whatís left of the heart
Looking for the aftershock to feel alive
As we herald the idol of the body after the shallow ideals of a better lay

Social experimentation to weigh the results of whoís the best in bed
After weíve acquired a taste
The honey is sweet and sickening
Till the anticlimax finds every lover a point of reference to the next
And itís less about what we have to give
But all we can take

As relationship becomes less the memories made
And all the more a will to forget
With high hopes to bury disappointment
As every consumer puts stock in the failing composure of all things skin deep
You donít need walls anymore
When you displace identity for the construct of an image
With compliments of another person to hide behind
Or worse yet, a familyÖ
