Lowered Expectations Poem

[ 0 ] January 10, 2015

its all my fault
Lowered Expectations

I’ve never felt like…
Such a failure
Repeating the same patterns
Pain is all that occurs
Disappointment and shame
Wrong decisions and blame
Addictions on the outside
Demons within
I close my eyes
and the nightmares begin

It’s fault like always
Never right at the start
The only expectation I live up to
Is breaking your heart

Nothing Lasts Forever

Nothing Lasts Forever

Nothing Lasts Forever
July 9th, 2008

Nothing lasts for always
It takes forever
Too long to survive time
Too hard to live that long
My heart too small to be devoted to you
Too selfish to try
I can’t give it to you
I can’t be yours always.

Nothing lasts forever.

When I tried I was naive
You turned your back to the gesture
Because it wasn’t enough.
It wasn’t a promise I could keep
It wasn’t for always
It couldn’t be forever.

Nothing lasts forever.

It’s Never Enough

[ 0 ] July 1, 2008

Never EnoughFor never feeling like it’s enough…

It’s Never Enough
June 28th, 2008

My best always falls short
Short of your expectations of me
Not enough of what you want
What you need
It’s never enough.

I don’t say the right things
My words don’t come out right
It’s never what you want to hear
What you need to hear
It’s never enough.

My feelings never seem to be strong enough
You think you know how I feel
It’s never what you want
It’s never what you need
It’s never enough.

My heart is a wound
That isn’t deep enough
It’s not what you want
It’s not what you need
It’s never enough.

I give you all I can
I give you all I have
It’s never what you want
It’s never what you need
It’s never enough.

It’s All For You

[ 1 ] June 30, 2008

Matthew Robert HenricksonIt’s All For You
June 28th, 2008

I’ll take the responsibility
Even if it isn’t mine to bear
Even if it isn’t fair.
I’ll make the sacrifice
Because I’ll always care
Because I’ll always be there.
I will carry the load on my shoulders
So it doesn’t pull you down.
I’ll jump first
So you don’t have to drowned.
I’ll take the fall
I’ll take it all
Just so you don’t feel any pain
And in the end

I’ll take the loss
So you don’t have to lose.

by Matthew Henrickson

To Matthew, for just one more happy day.

Poisoned Love

[ 1 ] May 3, 2008

This was an interesting poem that I wrote. It was all in one flow, no edits. I hate editing…

“Poisoned Love” 

Your forbidden kiss
like poison to my lips.
Diseasing my heart
Infecting me as we part.
Your love so sweet
Without it I’m incomplete.
I risk death to be in your arms
and to feel your love.
Being with you hurts my heart
and stings my soul
but it would be even worse without you.
I need to feel your love.
I need your love to continue.
I need to be plagued by your kiss
and held in your arms.
Keeping me alive
Is that poison
That starting killing me
In the beginning.
