PoL # 1 – The art of loving

Hello lovelies.  I don’t know quite what to call these.  They are poems and I kind of play off the lyrics from songs I like.  So I guess… Play off Lyrics? Poetry off Lyrics? Either one… PoL for short? It will do, I guess.  I featured these with my 100 days posts. Back in college I used to write a poem based off the lyrics.  It was fun for me and sometimes the words would go and sometimes not. This was my first one I think, on my blog.  Hope you like them.

You were alone, left out in the cold
You found me and lifted my bleeding soul

Clinging to the ruin of your broken home
You sheltered my wounded heart awake

Too lost and hurting to carry your load
I knew you’d love me back to strength

We all need someone to hold
Hold me, embrace me forever

You’ve been fighting the memory, on your own
Alone until you sat beside me

Nothing worsens; nothing grows
As still as my thoughts ripple apart

I know how it feels being by yourself in the rain
And you came to shelter me

We all need someone to stay
You stayed, you remained

We all need someone to stay
You stayed… with me

Hear you, falling and lonely, cry out:
Longing, aching for you

Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
You took my hand and squeezed

At the end of the day you were helpless
My tired head on your shoulder

Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Your arm around me, you kissed my forehead

You’ve drunk it down and you’ve spat it out
Choking on it as we speak

And nothing tastes like the things you had
Bitter pill inside me

So turn it off, why don’t you let them go?
Letting you help me now

We all need someone to stay
You’re staying, you’re staying

We all need someone to stay
You’re staying… with me

Hear you, falling and lonely, cry out
Want you to rescue me

Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
Will you love me

At the end of the day we’re helpless
Your thoughts corrupt me

Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Do you love me at all

Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Can you love me at all

Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Do you love me at all

You were alone, left out in the cold
I dreamed a dream of you

Clinging to the ruin of your broken home
Trembling in fear of losing you

You were falling and lonely, cry out:
Want me, take me, save me

Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
Crying, dying for you to hold me

The end of the day and we’re helpless
Watching the sunset without you

Can you keep me close? Can you love me?
Will you stay this time or will you go

Hear you falling and lonely cry out:
I can’t bear to see you leave again

Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
Drowning in my loneliness

At the end of the day we’re helpless
Your doubts breaking me

Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
You’ve pushed me away. You can’t love me most.

Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
You’re walking away. You can’t love me most.

Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
You’ve gone away… you can’t love me most.
