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.

I do not care

I’m feeling so good with myself

Is like a new me is growing to stay

Yet I can’t stop thinking about you

As my mind I try not to use.

I don’t know what’s wrong

But I keep looking at my phone

For an unexpected call

Or an uncertain thought.

Are you still thinking of me?

Or I never cross your memory?

Cause I’ve been doing so well

But I can’t seem to forget.

Everywhere I go I wish for you to show,

Everytime I think you’re gone

My soul crashes into stone.

I love you still

And don’t know if I’ll leave,

Even after the bad

The way you hurt me

I am still very sad

Kind of willing to forgive.

I don’t know if it’d be good

And I’m scare like hell

But truth is I want you for good

And the rest I just do not care.
