Everything is so messed up
I’m so confused
I should be crying,
But instead I’m laughing
Laughing…
At death.
Laughing…
At my last breath.

When the world is backwards
I’m so confused
The sky is ground
The north is south
And I find myself swinging
From the cobblestones
And with dirty hands, walking
Gripping with knuckle bones

Why is it, turned all around
I’m so confused
Yes means no
Wrong is right
And I’m enthralled with hurting people
Destroying their souls
And living, but actually dead
And somehow hurt consoles

At this rate I’ll be
Falling down to heaven
Or flying up to hell

To really understand this world of opposition
And upside-downs
When I try to call my friend
Turns out she’s the enemy
And when I think I’m singing
I’m actually really cursing
And all around me
They all just do the same

When normality's are no longer normality's
I’m so confused
When Beauty is ugly
And scars are lovely
Gets pretty hard to disguise the outside
When one day you realize the inside is outside
More to add to the jumble when
You love what you hate and hate what you love

Everything is either upside down or backwards
Confusing…
What goes up never comes down
And what goes wrong never goes better



Everything is so messed up
I’m so confused
I should be laughing
But instead I’m crying
Crying…
Because I’m alive
Crying…
Because I survive.
...let me know what you think.. please :)

This is.. . Wow... and when I read your comment saying that you think your writings are just scribbles YOU ARE WRONG. This is a twisted, deep, and emotional. Keep up the good work

Life is quite a maze of contradiction. There are some seriously powerful emotions going on here, and it's great that I could read this. :)

"When Beauty is ugly
And scars are lovely"

best part of the poem:)

also I think the rest is pretty good but it might work better as a song.^^

yea, it was late when I wrote this and I was upset and confused so it kind of flopped onto the page rather suddenly, with not much pre-thought, as a consequence of this the whole thing is rather unpoetic but it's free verse so I didn't pay special attention to any rhyme scheme, and quite honestly I don't really want to change it except for a few lines I put that seem pointless and I'll probably either remove them or replace. :)
Anyways thanks for the comment...and I suppose you may be right about turning it to lyrics but, I suck at lyrics and I don't write music very well so I wouldn't know where to start.
Again thanks ! I appreciate your opinion!

I said these work better as lyrics for a reason, so I don't get how you can say you suck at lyrics.

and music works perfectly in colabs so maybe you just have to find a musician:)

I liked it, but, in my honesty, you could've made it a little more rhymier... Then again, the way it flows is nice and adds to the confusion. :D

This is so amazing. I really love what it says. I wish I could write more, but I can't find the words to say them.
(Pretty ironic, considering I'm a writer myself;))

I think I do get it all, but, when your not the writer him/herself you never can be sure! (trust me, I only have a few deviations posted, but I've already run into that)
Yeah, being wordless it pretty unhelpful lol

Well whenever I'm stuck on words, like when writing poetry I'll go look through photos I have a special nature collection that is very inspirational also I'll turn on music this always helps but the music cannot have singing in it or else it's distracting...I'll do fast beat for intense poems and softer beats for less intense, it always helps me :)

this is amazing, i like all the opposition you make

and this one line "And scars are lovely" reminds me of a song called 'Beautiful Scars' by Disciple
