a Better Place (poem)

Tell me sweet lies whilst I go to sleep,
so when I open my eyes I’ll view life differently,
alter the world in my mind,
so I can finally smile at the one outside,

Pull the reel out of the tape,
cut me out & put me in a better place,
rewind & find the better times then press play,
laughing ’til we cry, watching the good old days,

Reminiscently drinking ‘til I hit the floor,
thinking dejavu I’ve been here before,
but you weren’t here & I wasn’t such a freak show,
I pick myself up & warm my lungs up with a smoke,
painting my breathe white,
I bellow melancholy songs in drunken melodies
on those type of nights,
with lyrics that wire into your brain,
waking you up the next day,
banging like the hangovers headache,
put me in a better place,
where the story of this day will be told,
when its old,

Drunken nights , drunken nights,
I’ll be the corpse on the floor,
when something goes to far in a fight,
rewind time & I’ll be the tears
in the mirror that you cried,

A drunken night, a couple of cigarretes,
twisted thoughts talked between breathes of smoke,
a drunken night, staring into my eyes,
as they shine a gleam of false hope,
forget that I’m old & I’ll forget tge old me

this was influenced by one of those drunken nights out as you can most likely tell… I remember listening to Proof when I wrote this 2 of his songs in particular Forgive Me and Clap With Me.

    “alter the world in my mind,
    “so I can finally smile at the one outside”

    this line grabbed me and began to squeeze at my neck….because it’s possible to do, in fact it’s the only way I can keep going, I have to alter this shit to channel in on the small good things that happen everyday….like breathing or walking without crutches and the list goes on. I can relate to this on many levels…interesting because I continue to share similar thoughts, and have a close buddy right now that is really up against, I have been delicate about sharing with him my great discovery. My mind is either my best friend or my worst enemy. I am learning to be friends with him. I might as well, the fucker is always there..lol

    you have an interesting style of writing…nice work
