Hard to Swallow

Updated on May 14, 2019
DomShadows profile image

A Darker-Side of poetry wrote from a slightly deranged mind. A mind wondering in many directions of black and grey. A world of words.

Aw is him Sleeping..?
Aw is him Sleeping..?

Hard to Swallow

A life lived so hard to swallow

A vacant path chosen, closing in

Clouded by a mist

We can't seem to all follow

So you'll be left on a limb of me

A wondering soul of

One curious man, devoted

Willing to find himself

Yet realized he was never shown

The purest path to follow

A chosen terrain only for me

Scared as we start to swallow

For desires that grows in us all

One empire, one man

That will not stand by

To watch us all fall by the way side

One day, some day soon

We'll hide our pains

To shield words to never bare sorrow

So hollow I start to shake

You'll never take my wall-of-fear

My point, it's broken

If I'm not mistaken

It's you, you were wrong

You were shown the purest path

That we can't look back upon

Those days are gone

Can only look back onto the future

To see and to say

A life lived

So hard to swallow

      wake up

      no wonder its hard to swallow

      pinned by your back

      Cute I say

      how you do smile

      While your fast asleep

      Now as I snoop

      Through your thoughts

      Right here, right now

      My curiosity grows

      You have my attention

      I am clearly listening

      You don't know til now

      It is hard for me to keep attention

      at best I have 10 minutes

      stretching the ritalin

      I always believed

      since I knew what believe felt

      Thus why I if nothing else

      I know a certain energy

      it is a rare energy

      not many, no, possess it

      I do

      I can sense many things

      in many people

      no not that

      There is no known term

      To refer to you to to to

      I ask

      what do you want from me

      What do you want from me

      do you know my friend

      Do you know?

      ssshhhhhhh quiet feel that?

      That, right there

      That's it

      The gift

      you possessing energy

      That rare wave

      Easy to please

      I just felt it again.

      Clearly the answer to the question

      we want to know

      We do now

      That same energy that will peak as pure desire

      and continue to let you

      gift many with your song,

      Ah yeh yeh you got it Dom

      I will be your shadow if I may

      Could learn a great deal

      Your deep down rhythm that's real

      sshhh whisper keep it long

      Like your style, my friend Dom
