Epilog

I’m finally honest with myself
Now I’ve got to be honest to you
Truth is I still love you,
It won’t change, no matter the men
The sex, the time, the place
It’s bigger than me and I need you
To know what it’s like in here.
As the day is ending,
Even the day of my wedding,
You’ll probably cross my mind
And that’s all right.
You’re my love and I accept that
I won’t let you down
Even if I tried,
I’ll always be around
For when you cry at night,
I’ll make songs and sell them
As my true creation
But it’d just be a reflection
Of the void I live in since you left.
This is all true
Don’t let my mask hurt you,
Cause I couldn’t live knowing
That I damaged your blooming.
You’re going to be alright
Just go ahead and try out,
You are worth every action
Don’t let them take your passion.
I hope you’re not sad girl
Don’t be a bad girl,
You’ll grow to see
Everything it’s meant to be.
All these lines I cannot change
All this poetry is not in vain,
If you’re listening please refrain
From misleading my love as hate
But honestly I took every hit I can.
You don’t need me no more
And that’s not wrong,
I am proud of who you are
No matter how far I go.
The mornings are hard
The night’s are not fine,
I’m dying from an illness
And my time is burning out.
So I need to move on,
Even if I can’t say goodbye,
Cause I’m feeling so low
I can’t hear the sound of my guitar.
I wished it was easier than this
But true love never is.
I could keep hiding behind
But there’s no place left in my mind,
You overloaded it with your cacao eyes.
This is my epilogue
And it is with love
That I want to let you go
Before I kill our past hopes.
We’re living in a wild world child
And I’m not man enough to carry your hand,
I always walked on the wild side
Of the sidewalk of your sunshine.
They say love is to keep that person near
I think we should let our lovers be free,
Love them like we love cats
Without forcing their hand
Being there from time to time.
Sweetheart do not mistake
My verses to be a regret
I am the happiest
When I think of your sweet face,
Your intensive hips
And your sugar lips
Repeatedly biting my neck
As we melted during sex.
Live long sweet love
Take care of your soul,
Do not let Men tell you wrong
You are everything humanity could hope.

About a girl

Woman,
I think I’ll always miss you
No matter how we end it
No matter what hate eats
In my lungs you’ll live.
Sweetheart,
All these games we play
Always get me so pale
And I can’t help but fall
Into the world of stone.
Sweetlips,
Everything I ever did
Was to your wishes fulfill
Even when you said ‘leave’
I hurted my knees
But I finally did.
And please do not
Look me with those
Magnificent globes
Cause I’m still drunk
From their mad love.
But woman,
You are growing so fast
I can’t keep track of the time
Always passing me by
As I don’t hold your hand.
So please do not forget
The union we used to create
Every time I touched your hair
You’d breathe from me
As against my chest you’d read
Dusted poems emerging from my head.

Leave it behind

Tonight I will think about nothing
For once I shall empty my head
But if I’m to spend my life rhyming
Will you rhyme for me when I am dead?

Will you sing to the trees I existed,
Tell the rivers they’re wasting their time?
If I stay here a couple more weeks love
Will you tell the whole world I was fine?

If I build up a workload to leave here
Will you make sure it’s read when I go?
If there’s no one to love me while living
Who’s there to let them all know?

Will you write out my name on a banner
And parade it and yell in the streets
That someone on earth once existed
That none of them ever will meet?

If they don’t care please play them my songs love
Perhaps then at least they can hear
That even if scores are not mourning the loss
Perhaps I once had a good hear

So it’s 3 o’clock in the morning
And I still haven’t emptied my mind
And this poem is not quite a masterpiece
But at least I can leave it behind

(‘Idiot Verse’, Keaton Henson)

The grave of love

You were only seventeen
And I took you for a dream,
Said you wanted to find peace
Let’s run to hell
I promise it’d be warm there
I know a soft spot
Where we could talk;
Time can’t enter there
There’s only words and poetry
Sex and the absence of agony
Lifts you into the air
Where no-one cares.
You can danse naked,
Scream your blame out,
Cry like you’ve never cried,
Run away from all this
And begin to believe
That feelings are meant to be
And I’ve felt everything for you
The greatest nights, the biggest lies
The ‘I’ve never felt so alive’
The ‘I’ll never leave’, a big dream.
Now I’m lost between these lines
I don’t know what I wanted to say
Look, truth is, you were my true love
And I used to be always so alone,
And now that you’re gone
I’ve forgot how to be at home
I’ve lost the way into the grave
That I’ve craved so long ago.

People are wrong

You know?
People are wrong,
It’s good to cry sometimes
It’s good to shout once in a while,
It’s recommended to write long lines.
We have everything we need
Inside our tired, absent beings
There’s no thought that can’t be
Built inside these walls we seek.
But you have to let yourself
Be the person you pretend,
Your weaknesses is your power
Now go, darling, light your fire!
Burn yourself inside of it
Feel the bad tear you up and weep
Sweetheart, weep now, it is time
To reborn from the ashes
Of what your soul crashes.
Don’t be afraid please,
I promise it’d be worth it,
Take these sad verses
And make them sonnets
About two stupid lovers
That the World curses.
I know you can’t hear it
But at least know this,
There’ll always be rhymes
About your whereabouts
But it’s your mission
To change our vision.
So you know?
People are wrong
It’s good to feel nostalgic
It’s better to free your magic.
Join me under the rain
Let’s go insane,
I’ll be back in a minute
When we end the dispute.
