Riding The Boogy Oogy Train Of Life


How Darkness Feels

November 16, 2018
There's a demon at the door
Waiting to come in
As I'm lying here on the floor
There's no fear within 

Oh
This is unfortunate, don't you think
How the waves of my insanity leak
This is how darkness feels 
I'm keeping it real

Dig my roots into the concrete 
So my feet will stay in place
While the hurricane of my thoughts 
Try to win the race
Heartache isn't sweet 
Oh, watch the vines that creep 
This is how darkness feels
I'm keeping it real

There's a flood in the hall
Streaming its way in
Leaking through the walls
It's rushing in

Oh
This is unfortunate, don't you think
How the waves of my insanity leak
This is how darkness feels 
I'm keeping it real

Dig my roots into the concrete 
So my feet will stay in place
While the hurricane of my thoughts 
Try to win the race
Heartache isn't sweet 
Oh, watch the vines that creep 
This is how darkness feels
I'm keeping it real

Darkness whispers in my ear
I'm coming in
As if I've welcomed it here
I'm fighting within

Oh
This is unfortunate, don't you think
How the waves of my insanity leak
This is how darkness feels 
I'm keeping it real

Dig my roots into the concrete 
So my feet will stay in place
While the hurricane of my thoughts 
Try to win the race
Heartache isn't sweet 
Oh, watch the vines that creep 
This is how darkness feels
I'm keeping it real

 

Going Under

November 13, 2018
The words are echoing in my head
My imperfections getting the best of me
All the lies told, things that are said
Have left me here struggling to believe

I'm going under, under
I'm going under, under
I've carried this emptiness for so long
Grasping for a love that was never mine
Stitching up these wounds, I'm almost gone
I'm bleeding, bleeding out as if I've already died
I'm going under
Going under, under
Going under, under
Under, under

A broken mirror never reflects the same
I've cut myself gluing back the ...

Judgment

November 6, 2018
Maybe you should hold your tongue
Until you listen to one's journey 
So easily to judge 
Never letting a word in

Maybe you should close your eyes
Until you see more than black and white
So easily to despise
Without a reason why

Tell me why you think you're perfect
Why you kick while someone's down
Demanding respect
Stroking your crown 

There goes judgment
The look in those eyes
There goes hatred
Out of the mouth that lies

Keep on climbing up the stairs of hatred
Keep throwing judgment like an act of God
We all...

Walls of Thorn

November 6, 2018
Let the silence speak
Because I don't feel like talking
And I don't feel like smiling 
I'll hold myself while I sleep 
I'm used to the breaking 
Never gaining what I've been craving 

Let my hunger die down
Because I don't want to feel
Nothing in this world is real
Love never sticks around
In the times I'm going down
I'm going down, down, down

Let my heart grow walls of thorn
No one will dare to climb 
All the years of being ripped and torn
Love has only made me blind
Let my heart grow walls of thorn
No one wi...

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 clo...

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...

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.
