I Guess I'M Greedy?

Poem By Akara K.

All I wanted was your heart.
I tried so hard to be what you wanted
I did everything for you, was everything just for you
But still you pushed me away
So why?
Why is it that I can never have anything I want?
I didn't ask for wealth
I didn't ask for fame
I didn't want a perfect life
I never even asked for a good life, just a life with you was all I needed
All I wanted was your heart.
I wish I could have had it.

Strip me of my laugh, strip me of my smile,
Strip me of everything I wanted to be;
Strip me of my false pretense, and
Then all you've got left is me.

Still Alive In Spite Of It All

Once I met a little boy
Who'd hang his head and cry
Once I met a widow's son
Who watched his father die


Fire, burning fire,
Brilliant flames ablaze;
Crimson, yellow, orange fire
A wild and radiant haze.


I tried so hard to hold you back, but to no avail
You slipped from my grasp so easily
Sometimes I can't help but blame myself
Maybe if I was only able to hold on a little tighter

Ode To Blue - A Sonnet

A color too deep for comprehension
It is the hue of the bright morning sky
The calmness it brings relieves all tension
Such a happy shade, the tint of a sigh
