Poems about rise


№ 1208272

When will the curse rise?

I hate this feeling.
I hate that you, of all people dearest to me, have brought it upon me.
I hate never knowing if we're up or down.

I feel as if you've poisoned our relationship,
And by poisoning our relationship, you've let the poison drip through my veins
I can feel it coursing through my blood.
It's a curse that in the past, I would have thought only you could lift.
Telling me that everything was going to be fine.

But now, I'm finally seeing how much bad you've done to me.
How much bad I've done to myself.

Once I thought you were the most stable position in my life,
Always there for me to lean on.
Now I realize I can only lean on myself.
That's what love does, it chokes you.
It leaves you gasping for air.
Now and then you can get high on the loss of oxygen,
But wait too long and you'll die.

curse,  rise.

How is it that you continue to steal my heart?
When the sun hasn't even risen,
And the day has yet to become.

The Naive Rise Above

You told me that I wasn't good enough,
That I was the one with flaws.
You yelled that I would never be anything great,
From a phone in that dreadful cell.

You pushed me away,
And pulled me right back in.
Like some sick twisted game,
Of how far can she bend.

I was eight,
And I was naive.
Yet, I believed that you really did love me.
And maybe you did,
But your kind of love is not right.

And then I was nineteen,
And you stood there telling me you were sober,
With a bottle falling out of your pocket.

It is that same game,
Of push and shove,
And no I'm not an addict,
I drink because of you.
As if somehow this was all my fault.

And I finally stopped bending,
And instead I started breaking.
Because the walls I built up,
Were tumbling to the ground.
And the wounds and the scars
Were rising above.
And my clouded vision of you,
Became all to crystal clear.

And I saw who you were,
Or rather who you are.
Just some no good,
Drugged up,
Drunken bastard of a man.

Who I will never let stand,
As my example of love again.
Because I am good enough,
And I know where I stand.

naive,  rise.

Ahh! Sun rise! Kill it with fire!

Warm fog wall running

Hits me like epiphany

Crawl home eyes flooding

Miss you so naГЇveto

ahh,  fire,  rise,  sun.

This summer vacation
I chose to write poetry
And someone told me
That I'm not the worst
At it because I am a human
And not a Vogon
And I spent my time standing
On a digital street corner
Shouting my threnodies
Into the digital white sky
To join the cacophony of
And healing
And dwelling
And moving on
And of love and hate
And how
The thought of you keeps us up so
God damned late
That we forgot to set an alarm
And were late to work for the second
Time in four years
But in the darkness we
Are huddled
Bleeding binary
Into words of hope.
Rise, rise
And shine
Better than the sun ever could.

Yours are the only eyes
I want to see
- half open and misty with sleep -
When the sun peeks through the curtains
To remind us
That the window is still open
And our clothes are still on the floor.

Rise Above All

Rising above all
And all i want to do is finish standing tall
As i finish climbing my mountain of fears
I look down at my peers who look jealous cuz i look like a menace
They start calling me names and a bunch of different jeers
But it's not true cuz I've
Breached my limits
Reached my potential
Seized my pinnacle
My biggest fear is my future and how it will appear
But it don't matter cuz im standing alone,
Without a tear
And i know that I've
Started from the bottom now im here!

Rise from the ashes in haikus

A pill an hour takes
Away the power of the
Pain, it's come again

She waits for relief
As it rushes through her veins
But is temporary

Vision blurred by
Tear ducts begging to burst out
Bathe in the release

Yearning for answers
Looking for a permanent
Solution that eases

She finds her soulmate
In the pen and paper and
Words; each means success

Be comfortable
In your sorrows and burdens
Understand then act

Do it all for you
Draw from positivity
Take comfort in love

ashes,  haikus,  rise.
