Smash It To Pieces (Stop the Flow) Poem

Updated on April 5, 2012

This is a poem from my teenage years as well like many of my others. An experimental piece it it quite cloudy at many parts. At the time I was very much at a place where I wanted people to find their own meaning in it. My poetry was always open to interpretation. For me it was a journey of seeing things from many angles and putting it to paper. I enjoyed the mystery and always found much to inspire me at the time. Anyway, hope you like it.


Black to white, and white to black

Colours, actions, take me back

Laugh to smile, cry and weep

Enter into, forever sleep

Present now, and days of old

I feel you now your so cold

Wish that you were truly mine

Thinking pulls me back in time


Recognize the face in glass

You can never change the past

Sands of time through the hourglass go

Smash it to pieces, stop the flow


Light to dark and dark to light

Which are you and which am I

See the sun, see it dawning

Soon again, it is spawning

Streaks of yellow flood the sky

Deadly danger watch your eyes

Final gravity, conquers all

You have no right to me at all


Recognize the face in glass

You can never change the past

Sands of time through the hourglass go

Smash it to pieces, stop the flow


Death to life, and life to death

Turning, slowly, with the rest

With you shackled to my heart

Crying, knowing, ripped apart

Won't they let you I'm not around

Quieting now I hear them sound

How much difference did I make

You want me now but it's too late


Recognize the face in glass

You can never change the past

Sands of time through the hourglass go

Smash it to pieces, stop the flow


Smash it to pieces, stop the flow...

      I had to vote this one up! It's a really good poem and has a great message on relationships. Got to be careful on what you say and do -- sometimes you can't undo the past.

      Not only is this a good poem, it also has a truth about it. Yes we wish we could change what we have done, but we cannot. Voted up.

      You were mature beyond your years, obviously! AND - you were willing to learn. I'm so impressed that you were able to convey your feelings like this at such a young age!

      Good poem here. Reading it, I hear a kind of hip-hop rythm to it, certinly a musical sound anyway. I hope you publish more.
