Bunch of poems I wrote back in 2001


September:

Time's healing, I'm ahead
Find a reason once again
Take a moment outta time
I'll be standing back behind

I'm lost in a thousand nights
But Sunshines at my feet
I'd walk through a thousand fires
And next to me she'd be

Confused that our lives are shaking
That's the thought i am weighing

And i'm tired of the battle 'cause i'll never win
To go back again, well, it's better than where i am
I can hear you callin from five thousand miles away

I'll remember you
You will be there in my heart
I'll remember you
And that is all that i can do
But i'll remember

Believe in someone or in something
The sun is shining bright
The sky is blue and waiting for you
Stay inside your darkened room
And all your troubles will consume you

We've been born before
We'll be born again
we've been born before and again.



WHY?
Feelin' -I've been lost for years
You can never understand me
Unless you've seen those tears
But you never get to sleep when i'm away
I don't mind deeper that you lay

I'm lost in a thousand nights
But sunshines at my feet
I'd walk through a thousand fires
And next to me you'd be

Remember the time we made loving roses
And you took my picture in all sorts of poses
How can i ever get over you when
I'd give my live for yours.


Senses

You got the best of me
For what took so long
The things you put me through
Seemed to be so wrong

Childhood living is so easy to do
The things that you wanted i brought them for you
Graceless lady, you know who i am

You ask me Why i'll tell you then
Two worlds collide we bury them
We're far too drunk to see things
As they are

While you are breaking down
You're building up your best defenses
And when you finally drown
You'll lose your lover and your senses

Time's a season in my head
I'll be better off again
Rather die this evening
You would never know
Up ahead and far below.


Pain within me

Feelin' - I've been lost for years
You can never understand me
Unless you've seen those tears
But you never get to sleep when I'm away
I don't mind deeper that you lay
Outta time

Runnin' - Runnin' from those days
There's another warning inside me
Guess I've gone insane
But you always run away when I come around
I don't mind the depths that you delve
Run you down

Goaded - Loaded up this gun
There's a killer in me hopin'
Hope that you're the one
But you always run away when I come around
I don't mind the depths that you delve
Terrified

Don't stop
Don't talk
Do not fight with me
Don't stop
Don't talk
Do not fuck with me

LOVES DEFEAT

I'm drawn to you and love's allure
It feels so safe, sacred and pure
But it's so hard to be sure
When you've been down that road before

My new found love laid at your feet
But mixed in is the taste of loves defeat
Which makes our union bittersweet
And we must find a way to lay these demons down

Time went on and nothing changed
No matter what i tried
Was something missed or overlooked ?
Some nuance passed me by
Signals crossed care mistaken
For what i wanted from you

I tell myself that I can't hold out forever
I say there is no reason for my fear
Cause I feel so secure when we're together
You give my life direction
You make everything so clear

Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
For the break that will make it OK
There's always some reason to feel not good enough
And it's hard at the end of the day

You'd think i learn by now
There's never an easy way
I'll get through somehow
I'm on my knees to pray

Time can bring you down,
Time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart,
Have you begging please

Loves defeat 2

It's better this way, I said
Having seen this place before
Where everything we say and do
Hurts us all the more

You've got a way with me
Somehow you got me to believe
In everything that I could be
I've gotta say - you really got a way

Am I all alone in the universe?
There's no love on these streets
I have given mine away to a world that didn't want it anyway

And time goes by so slowly
The nights are cold and lonely
I shouldn't be holding on
But I'm still holding on for you

HURT

Think i'll go for a walk
Maybe out in the rain
Maybe let the tears
Roll down my face and
Not feel the pain

It took a while to turn your head
While i tried to win your heart
I wasn't your type that's all you said
I didn't know where to start
I can't help the way i feel

I'll admit i'm wrong
But i'm getting back on track
I've been here to long
I'm under attack

I've given you every part of me
Tried everything i could to make you see
But you don't love yourself
You can't love me or anyone else

There is no mystery to be reveled
And so we tell the truth and then run
I love you because i love you
And i did think that you were the one
But now i see who you've become

Well i got plenty of time
Time figure it out
Tike to think about you and me
And whatever that was all about

If all of the strength
And all of the courage
Come and lift me from this place
I know i can love you much better than this

Everything is quiet since you're not around,
And i live in the numbness now,
In the background

I see a complicated maze
Debris of dead compassion
A love came like a hurricane
Then left it's devastation.


Break Up

You'd think I'd learn by now
There's never an easy way
I'll get through somehow
I'm on my knees to pray

I feel just like I'm sinking
And I claw for solid ground
I'm pulled down by the undertow
I never thought I could feel so low

There's a pain inside me that you'll never know
So, I'll come back home
'Cause it's better than being alone
No one falls in love without ever falling away

I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie,
I have my freedom but I don't have much time
Faith has been broken Teras must be cried
Let's do some living after we die

It's all right to make mistakes
You're only human
Inside everybody's hiding something
Take time to catch your breathe and choose your moment



Be great to know what you think of these.

Sammy

Oh Sammy these are so beautifully written! As I was reading I felt like I was reading my own life in your words. Beautiful work!

Thank you. I wrote these back a few years ago (well six years ago) when I was going through one of my artist flares as well as a difficult time. I am just so happy that I have managed to touch someone elses life with my writing.
