Arrogance...the comfort of having most things handed to you..and then when one thing falls do you.

Indecision From Insecurity

What did you expect when nothing was right?
A pat on the back
Someone to guide you with a light
Welcome to my hell
I’m no longer the guidance
I’ve put out whatever light it was I had
Just to watch your face
--turn Sad—

Because you don’t know sorrow
Until its fingers have wrapped about your throat
And you’re slowly dying
To make these mistakes fade away

Corkscrew the thoughts into your ears
Let the blood of truth spill down,
Your cheeks of pale dismay
Turn and catch a good night,
in a butterfly net of nightmares

Truth burns your eyes
Forces your lips to squeeze
Squeeze every arrogant thought to the air

Cleansing water runs over the body
Strands of hair falling to the drain
Twisting away with every thought on record

Conscience, in disposable
Far too large for the drain
A comfort space you seemed to make
Just keep this in your heart
And shelter off the blame

Turn off the light
and strike the candle
Lavender laden shadows blanket this
Peel back these eyelids
as I press the burning unavoidable
into your mind

A weakness consumes
All because you assumed
everything would be there to fall back on.

I think everyone does this at some time or another in their life. Its...this verse just talks of people that always feel they will have everything in life going right for them then at one minute BAM! everything goes wrong then they fall apart...*shakes head*.

  I came into this piece expecting to dislike it because of the title. Usually swanky wordplay in titles is done to mask inferior work. Not so here. I truly believed the messages in your poem and I applaud the images. Have you ever seen "A Clockwork Orange", where they force the guy's eyes open with these metal prongs and force him to watch rape and violence on a movie screen. That's what portions of this poem reminded me of. And not in a bad way. It does need some tweaking here and there, but I think you can work out the kinks. It's a very nicely done poem. Thank you for sharing. -Lazy Spleen

  I think this is quite good and just needs some fine tuning. read it out loud to see if anything sounds off to you or if a different word would sound better here or there. overall it works quite well and I like the feelings portrayed here. there are some really great lines that stand out: 'turn and catch a goodnite in a butterfly net of nightmares' is one I especially like. well done.

  Well, who also has some nice things to say about sadness? I liked it while I was reading, but then interrupted by a friend of mine who decided to prank me... but oh well. I especially liked the first stanza "Just to watch your face -turn sad-" Thats powerful. I say you could have continued that and made things alot more dark and mysterious and the such. Niceness in a box of rice krispies.

  hello, i really liked this poem, but the rhyme scheme should be regular. some verses rhyme when others do not it takes site away from the poem it's self. i really liked the last stanza. I do not encourage you to change your poem, if you like it you should keep it exactly like it is.
