It Won’t Defeat Me

Published by at 5:21 am under Lost Love Poems

Standing on these mountains of madness,
I felt it too,
the howling winds of rage and pain and hurt and fear,
How they swirled around and cut deeper than my knife,
They bit me and wounded me with all his heart.

But I can’t lay here dying forever,
Because forever never comes for those whose time is up.
So I’ll compose myself and controll myself,
Put on those lying eyes of mine,
And I’ll stroll down to the masquerade party we call Life,

And I’ll dance like that is where I belong,
Because we’ve all stood there in that place in the night sky,
Where love becomes pain and everything’s a lie.
And I’ll draw the sword of distance and distrust and I’ll fence with everyone I see,

Because that brokeness, that feeling of being the absolute defect,
Won’t defeat me.
I’ve cried and lied and died too many times to give up now,
And damn it, I am too proud to let you kill me.

    It’s hard to comment on your poems because I just run out of words…
    Every single poem of yours has touched me, but I think this one has in particular. The whole poem was completely… Wow
    I’m awe-struck. Completely.

    Thank you, it was intense to write it, it all came pouring out of me actually when I was talking to my sister in almost those exact words. Obviously there were a few changes made, i didn’t end it speaking directly to her but yeah…

    Dang dude this is great. So metaphorically perfect. Love the adjectives, they’re so vivid, but not TOO vivid. The ending is awesome, but to me it was kind of too sudden. Like you didn’t prepare me for it. Overall it was awesome.
