GREETINGS FROM DEATH

Posted in Jones' Poems with tags , , , , on June 24, 2017 by tiltdiary

It is never easy to let go of true love
As life forces you to do it more often you think you would get tough
But the opposite I find
You become more kind
You start cherishing every split of a second
With the time you have left that you reckon
There are never enough moments left
It feels death is some strange identity theft
Stripping off what defines your soul
That’s why you need to pursue your goal
Understanding what matter the most
So you don’t haunt after the superficial, fleeing ghost
Then when it’s your turn to cross over they will be there as your welcoming host
It’s an honor to cry
When you know they will die
Put a rose on their grave
And remember they would want you to be brave
It’s see you later … not goodbye
We meet again … we all must die

NOTHING’S SET IN STONE

Posted in Jones' Poems with tags , , , , , on May 1, 2017 by tiltdiary

Today you feel like it’s too hard to live
And you have nothing left to give
You are exhausted and bored to death
Sitting in traffic inhaling exhaust and wasted breath
Just close your eyes and picture the sky
Imagine you with your dreams can fly
You don’t know what will happen soon
Don’t forget the ever changing moon
Nothing is over yet
Life is like a long shot bet
It won’t always be like this
Everything can change as quick as a kiss
You just need to make sure you don’t sleep through it so you won’t miss
Don’t fear tomorrow
Let go of old sorrow
Because nothing’s set in stone
And you’re not alone

YOU CAN’T KILL A WORD

Posted in Jones' Poems with tags , , , on February 2, 2017 by tiltdiary

Humanity doesn’t understand that time goes too fast
Nothing will ever last
Forever is not a clever word
So watch out what you say to who and who you hurt
Words cannot be killed
But they can lead to a loving heart turning chilled
You cannot take words or actions back
Careful when you are on the attack
Minutes lost
Come at a high cost
Today is lost in eternity
If you didn’t make everything out of it you lost another opportunity
Time is precious and fleeting
Make the best out of it without cheating

THERE’S NO WHISKEY STRONG ENOUGH

Posted in Jones' Poems with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 14, 2016 by tiltdiary

I was miserable
Messed up
Strung out
Broke down and cried many nights out loud
Turned the days to dust
Couldn’t feel my heart nor any lust
Pulled the curtains tight
To make my place feel like the darkest night
At least I knew I did all I could to make it work
But you dragged my heart through L.A.’s dirt
What else could I do
I went through hell trying to get over you
They asked me why I wouldn’t drink
Numbing myself would’ve not help me not to think
You left me going crazy
Till I got so tired and my feelings for you got lazy
I bet you never thought I would leave you behind
Now you’re stuck alone in your daily unbearable grind
You are the one who’ll never get over
You won’t be able to stay sober
Go drink up my dear
Drown your guilt and fear
Your darkness inside is darker than any full moon eclipse night
There’s no whiskey strong enough to make things ever right
You’re the one who will never get over
Continuing to be hungover
Drink up my dear
Drown your heartache and loneliness in whiskey and beer
I decided to to pull my shades open again
Even if I could just look out to see the rare dessert rain
We both missed out on the love-train
But on your special day today
You aren’t forgotten
Just left to rotten
Drink up my dear
You’ll need extra strong whiskey and lots of beer

BIRDS OF THE NIGHT DON’T CRY

Posted in Jones' Poems with tags , , , , , on September 12, 2016 by tiltdiary

Birds of the night don’t cry
In the worst case scenario their smile is a lie
They get stronger with every let down
Often, after too many it doesn’t even make them frown
they just push it down
Deeper down
Like it doesn’t exist
As if the broken heart is an easy fix
That’s how they grow stronger
And learn to hold their breath longer
Some of us will survive this way of life
To others it becomes the sharp end of a knife
To finish off yourself or cut out what huts the most
That’s when birds of the night turn into ghosts

WHEN SUFFERING TURNS INTO A VICE

Posted in Jones' Poems with tags , , , , , , , on September 10, 2016 by tiltdiary

I can hear my heartbeat
Even my breath loses its heat
So quiet you can hear a needle drop
Everything will stop
But it feels so nice
I have to think about it more than twice
Hurt
Fear
Anger
Melt away like ice
Is making you suffer my only vice
Maybe I am addicted to make you feel the good-byes
You will never forget
I have nothing to lose and put all on this single bet
The tables turned
My victory earned
My only vice
To make you remember my good-byes

SKINNY DIPPING IN CROATIA

Posted in Jones' Poems with tags , , , , on July 30, 2016 by tiltdiary

Loving the flavorful ocean air
Thickening with salt my hair
Sea glimmer reflecting on my skin
This amazing journey is just about to begin
High mountains and clear lakes
Bring back the memories of what my mother bakes
Stripping off my clothes to dive into the refreshing sea
Skinny dipping you with me
