Riding The Boogy Oogy Train Of Life


Life is like the Seasons

October 2, 2018
The autumn leaves fall
She feels she's dying along with them
Feeling alone and so small
Watching the sunlight dim
The chill keeps closing in
The chill keeps closing in

When winter comes
Let all that hurt you die away
Hold on until the spring comes
When flowers bloom over decay
Life is like the seasons 
Just keep breathing 
Keep your heart beating 

The grass is covered in ice
She feels her soul bleeding for life
In this deserted dying ground 
There's no one around 
The chill keeps closing in
The chill keeps closing in

When winter comes
Let all that hurt you die away
Hold on until the spring comes
When flowers bloom over decay
Life is like the seasons 
Just keep breathing 
Keep your heart beating 

You may break a million times
Before the ice melts away
You'll feel like you're ready to die
Before the sunlight replaces the gray
Don't slip away 
Before you find your way
Your Spring will come

When winter comes
Let all that hurt you die away
Hold on until the spring comes
When flowers bloom over decay
Life is like the seasons 
Just keep breathing 
Keep your heart beating

Like the branches of a dying tree
She feels cold and hollow
It gets harder to breathe 
In the winter that follows
The chill keeps closing in
The chill keeps closing in

Life is like the seasons 
Just keep breathing 
Soon it'll be your Spring
And the flowers will bloom for you
 

Shadows of the Erased

August 5, 2018
Judge me, because that's what you do
I shouldn't take it, but I have nowhere to turn
And I'm too weak to speak
I fall into the shadows of the erased
I wish I was stronger, I do
But I'm breaking down like I have nothing to lose

I used to believe in heros and a fairytale love
Someday my heartache would be kissed into bliss
That angels looked out for me from above 
But as the years pass by, seems happiness is only a myth 

Hurt me, because that's what you do
I shouldn't take it, but I have nowhere to turn
An...

All I Could Do

July 24, 2018
I held my head up today
That was all I could do
I had no strength, but to pray
That was all I knew to do

I know life can bury us down deep
Knock us from our feet
Some days I'm not ok
But I'll lie and say I'm fine anyway 

I smiled at faces passing by
That was all I could do
Blamed my tears on the sun in the sky
That was all I knew to do

I know life can bury us down deep 
Knock us from our feet
Some days I'm not ok
But I'll lie and say I'm fine anyway 

Tomorrow I'll remake the wings I gave away
Tomorrow I'll re...

Meaning of Life

May 19, 2018

Perfect smile through perfect lies
Hidden beneath the paintings of our faces
Holding on tight to carnival-like rides
Reaching out for unrealistic places

We run ourselves deep into the ground
Until there's nothing left and no one else around 
And our hearts are left without a sound
Tell me if the world should come to an end
Would the meaning of life hold true in your eyes

If flames burned all your material things
And floods washed everything away
Is there love around to make your soul sing
Or did you trad...

No Ordinary Day

February 11, 2018
I burnt my breakfast again this morning
Watched my toaster ignite in flames
Outside the rain is pouring 
There's no ignoring
This'll be no ordinary day

My car died on the way to work
I cursed watching it roll into a ditch
After getting rearended by a jerk
My blood is boiling 
This is no ordinary day

I split my jeans as I tripped down the stairs
Now the world can see my striped underwear
Life at times doesn't seem fair
There's no denying 
This is no ordinary day

I came home to dog shit on the floor
Didn't rea...

Demons

February 11, 2018
Sometimes it gets cold in the summer
And the weight of the world pulls me under
Sometimes I need to know I'm not alone 
No, words aren't enough I need to be shown
But I'll manage on my own

And maybe it was the demons
That stood by my side
When no one else did
Keeping me alive
When I should've died 
And maybe I needed to believe in
A love harvested inside
Somehow I'll find a way to survive 
I always do oh, and I don't know why
These demons have become a friend of mine
But I'll always survive 

Sometimes my sou...

Miles

February 11, 2018
Some days I just need to get away
Roll down the windows in my car
Turn the radio up and drive away
Don't know where I'm going or how far
But I could drive for miles and miles and miles

Some days I just want to get away
Put on my running shoes, earbuds in
Leave out the door and run away
Don't know where I'm going or how far
But I could run for miles and miles and miles

Don't care where I'm going
I'm just going
For miles and miles and miles 

Some days I just need to get away
From all the thoughts in my head
G...

Ghost

February 11, 2018
There's a nameless street 
With an old house at the end
 It stands alone in defeat 
Once loved now condemned 
It's as if our souls couldn't win
Yet we were somehow meant to meet

I see you standing there but you're not
I feel your pain but I can't comfort air
Oh this just isn't fair
It's as if I'm dying while I'm still alive
You're an angel in the light 
A devil in the night
A ghost in my sight 
It just isn't fair
It isn't right
Am I losing my mind

Within this broken floor
I found your letters 
You craved a lov...

The Reaper

September 28, 2017
I think I've held my breath for too long
I think I've relied on faith maybe I'm wrong 
This whole house is crumbling down
I'm falling into this decaying ground

That's when I heard the reaper calling 
In the graveyard where I'd been crying 
He said I'll ease your pain just give me your soul
Only then can I take you home

I hoped I'd find relief in the living 
I hoped I'd find peace in giving 
Only demons stood by when no one else did
Any warmth for this soul God forbid
 
That's when I heard the reaper calli...

I Need to Know

September 20, 2017
Hello empty casket, are you waiting for me
It's been so long since I've felt alive
I've spent my life drinking life's poison tea
Society doesn't really care if I survive 

Hello judgmental world, tell me if I'm wrong 
If love is supposed to cure us all
Why does the hatred go on for so long
I've never felt I mattered at all

If today ends how will you remember me
I need to know
That my existence made you smile at least
That I was good enough just being me
I need to know 
I need to know 
I need to know 
That so...

About Me


Teresa I have a love for writing and reading. I created this website to share what goes on in this strange mind of mine and to express. I'm inspired by the imperfections in our world as those imperfections in humanity and life are what's real and true as well as beautiful. We all have our ups and downs and no matter how young or old we are, rich, poor, where we come from, our hearts beat the same and I think we all are on the same boat of striving for our dreams, love, happiness and hopefully compassion for one another. Thanks for visiting.
