To All of The Above

To pretension and redemption

Suspended in a truth

To when loving anybody

Always first love you


To being one with heavy

To being one with light

To being periodically

Always, always right


To shoving against exhaustion

And losing sleep as well

To caring for your self

Though no one else can tell


To hold a grudge alone

And always striving greed

To always feeling empty

And only taking what you need


To being first in general

And losing last to lies

To showing great denial

And never failing to surprise


To silver winning gold

To copper being pure

To pennies facing tails

And heads facing to endure


To simple complex faults

And ridiculing crime

To losing for the one and only

Next to last time


To falling hard and flat

To being very thin

To being slant outside

And bold from within


To castles in the sky

And moments that never end

To losing what you love

And gaining your best friends


To holding hands

And loving looking back

To want to see the damsel in distress

Be rescued from the tracks


To showing off

And being smart

To knowing honesty

Is a lost art


To never giving up

To always stopping now

To lose but not forget

A womans only vow


To shooting for the stars

And falling on the sun

To knowing getting burned

Is always half the fun


To spirals down the sink

When it pours, you drown

To copying every smile

And noticing every frown


To living life at best

And always tempting fate

To hinting towards death

And your expiration date


To hollow empty dreams

And shinning dimming stars

To flailing at the weddings

And anonymous tips at bars


To soiling the air

With every breath you take

To feeling every moment

And hoping it's not to late


To knowing your alright

And not understanding love

But never hesitating on a yes

To all of the above

Thank you so much! It means so much to have people say things nice or not so nice about my writing. I guess I've felt sorely unappreciated when I've read aloud to people. It doesn't really interest them if they don't like writing in the first place. With this I am writing to people who appreciate ANY writing, and maybe my writing can make the cut for some peoples likes or dislikes. As long as I'm out there and getting heard, I'm quote thrilled with my current situation. :)

I know what you mean. All your work and effort seem to be that much more when others appreciate it and understand it, then respond. We all crave praise and acceptance from not only those we care about, but also people who we have never met. It just makes everthing better when others appreciate your work. Awesome poem!
