I Don't Know Why...

i don't know why i think of you
each and every day

i don't know why i love you so
and trusted u to stay

i don't know why i gave my life
to a man who hurts me so

i don't know why i gave my heart
to a man I'll never know...

I Don't Know Why I Should Try To Write A Poem Now

I don't know why
I should try to write
A poem now-
There will be other times
When the Metaphors
I ordinarily do not have
Flow not easily in me
Like water lava
Like blood- thinned by aspirin-

All I have to do is
Keep reading enough poetry of others
And exotic metaphors
Will come to me
As if I were another person's voice
And nothing in myself
Real as my own.

I Don't Know Why You Are So Sensitive

Not one word from me did you hear,
About your lifestyle being in a state of shambles.
Or my saying anything about your way of life lived,
Sitting on the edge of oblivion.

'It was implied.'

How?

'Your eyes are very expressive.
When they squint and your jaw drops,
It is a hint...
Something does not meet with your approval'

I don't know why you are so sensitive.
I am very tolerant of that which soon will not exist.
Somebody will eventually learn,
Which end of a broom is used and what a mop does.

I don't know why

On a day like today,
The heaven is soft with dew,
And in trees; birds have eyes crying,
But the air up in the sky was new.

With poppy clouds looking down,
From the broken road out of heaven,
Upon fine lines and pleasant farm,
A blanket of trees canvasses the ground.

There were farmers and shepherds,
Harvesting in the same field,
I don't know why the work was so hard?
Raking the soil and planting seed.

Shepherds find the grassy verge,
Where life is quiet and only soft birds sing,
In trees where they rest and observe,
The broken road to heaven.

Don't Know Why

I waited 'til I saw the sun
I don't know why I didn't come
I left you by the house of fun
I don't know why I didn't come
I don't know why I didn't come

When I saw the break of day
I wished that I could fly away
Instead of kneeling in the sand
Catching teardrops in my hand

My heart is drenched in wine
But you'll be on my mind
Forever

Out across the endless sea
I would die in ecstasy
But I'll be a bag of bones
Driving down the road along

My heart is drenched in wine
But you'll be on my mind
Forever

Something has to make you run
I don't know why I didn't come
I feel as empty as a drum
I don't know why I didn't come
I don't know why I didn't come
I don't know why I didn't come

I Don't Know Why

This is one of those moments
When all that really matters
Is crystal clear
We are woven together
By whatever threads of life that have
Brought us here
We are stripped of all our layers
We are getting to the core
Tell me something real
And nothing more
Cuz I don't know why
I don't know how
I don't know where
Baby all I know is love
So I'm here between the bookends
Of everything that was and What will be
There's a wealth of information
Not so many answers
It seems to me
So I face the unfamiliar
And nothing's clear
Only blinding faith can carry me can carry me from here
And I don't know why
I don't know how
I don't know where
Baby all I know is love
Hold my hand and hold this moment
Time sure feels precious don't it
Life is always changing
This I know
I don't know why
I don't know how
I don't know where
Baby all I know is now
Baby all I know is now

I Don't Know

I don't know what I did
I don't know what happened
I don't know why you stopped talking to me

You said three words that made me so happy
Now you not here with me
Now my world has fallen apart

I don't know what I did to make you leave
I don't know...

But I do know I love you
and I want you to call just to say hi

I can tell you've changed
Please tell me what happened...
Because I dont know

The Ones Who Are Silent

So I scare you..
I don't know why?
It is true like it or not.
Censor those ones if you like.
But it is happening right now.
And as a peaceful American I won't incite or disembowel.
I don't have to.
It already is happening right now.
Wall street has been under siege for the past two weeks.
They follow money.
They follow the greed.
And they're angry.
Why won't you let me tell their story?
You can't stop people from communicating.
No matter how much you would like to.
Am to become a public enemy for speaking.
What about my first amendment right.
Means nothing cause this is a world stage.
You shouldn't be scared of the ones you hear.
But instead the ones you don't.

I don't know what to say....

When my old love for you dies a new love blooms. If I loved myself as I love you, a God I would become. When I am lost in the desert of despair, my memory of you is my mirage. A river of sweetness is your tears, their passion is my elixir. If there be no pleasure in our love anymore, than the pain of the pleasure once felt is my consolation. To others peace is the love of solitude, you are the love of my solitude. My heart is lost in thy abyss, and its dark depths I cry. O sweet love O sweet love! My love is in thy sigh. Thy voice brings sweeter messages than the angel Gabriel. If thou chose to hate me, I hate myself the more and thy hate I love, like hate has never been loved before. Underneath the veil of thy shadow my soul does softly glow. On thy skin, my color, does so eloquently express, the universal of love that beats in every poet's chest. I don't know why my heart beats the chords of love to me this day, but I hope they beat forever and to this charm I pray….. When thy speak of being misunderstood, my love echoes in thy heart. If I were to die, all my dreams and aspirations would be attained by thy one sweet breathe no death could take away. God should not give thee to one, one should give thee to God. I have nothing else to say, but sometimes all the expression of the beauty of the love I feel for you gets stolen by three words… I love you.

I Don't Know If You Knew

I don't know if you knew
But sometimes I think of you
Sometimes I feel happy
Remembering those fun moments we had together
How it would bring me joy to make you laugh
To make you smile - Bright up your day
How I would enjoy seeing you every day
Having long conversations together
How it would please me to pleasure you
Make you feel like a queen - Treat you like royalty

I don't know if you knew
But sometimes I think of you
Sometimes I yearn
Remembering that amazing friendship we shared
Shocked at how horridly it suddenly ended
Shocked at how cold you treated me
I yearn for that strong friendship we shared
Like no other - Like every other
I sometimes ask myself why it is that I still do
After finding out your true self
I guess I'm just a fool - Loved you too much

I don't know if you knew
But sometimes I think of you
Sometimes I feel love
Thinking of you - Your beauty
Feeling that there's no other girl out there
Which could ever replace you
Or one to share the same love I share for you
I don't know why I loved you so much
Or is it love? - I just don't know any more

I don't know if you knew
But sometimes I think of you
Sometimes I try to negotiate
Thinking that I could change
Change for the better
Become the man you want me to be
Get in shape - Be more fancy
Maybe one day you'd come to realise
That you've made a terrible mistake
And that one day, you'll want to make amends

I don't know if you knew
But sometimes I think of you
Sometimes I feel confused
Not knowing whether I still feel for you
But in the end knowing that deep down
I never stopped loving you - Caring for you
I try to tell others that I stopped loving you
Sometimes I even try to fool myself that I just don't care
But it's hard to fool your own heart - Possibly impossible

I don't know if you knew
But sometimes I think of you
Sometimes I feel in denial
Feeling that there's still a chance
I could still fix things - I'd think
It's not too late - I'd assure myself
We could still be close - As friends, of course
I could supress my feelings for you
It's ok - I'd do anything for you

I don't know if you knew
But sometimes I think of you
Sometimes I feel hate
Remembering all the sacrifices I made for you
How unappreciative you were, are
I cant believe I fell for you
I'd love to know what I saw in you
Never have I been able to explain
Not to me - Not to anyone
I wish you had just acted cold from the start
Instead of leading me on for so long
What a fool I was, am

I don't know if you knew
But sometimes I think of you
Sometimes I feel sad
Sad that I never lived up to your expectations
Sad that I could never be the man you wanted
The man of your dreams - Your fantasies
Remembering the times when I was wrong
Causing you to feel sad - Disappointing you
But in the end there was nothing I could do
I just wasn't good enough for you

I don't know if you knew
But sometimes I think of you
Sometimes I feel forgiveness
Forgiving you for the way you treated me
How you handled the situation - Handled me
You just don't know how to handle these situations
Guys who have feelings for you - Or better yet,
Are madly in love with you - You just don't know
But it's ok - I'd say to myself
It's not your fault - I forgive you

I don't know if you knew
But sometimes I think of you
Sometimes I feel regret
Remembering the first day I ever met you
Wishing I could just go back
Reversing everything that happened
Stopping me from going through this pain
Avoiding getting my heart crushed like no other
Not having to spend every day
Wishing that I never felt for you
Wishing that I had never fallen for you

I don't know if you knew
But sometimes I think of you
Sometimes I feel angry
Remembering the way you treated me after
How furious it would make me
Knowing that what we had was all over
Sometimes I wouldn't be able to help it
The anger just gets to me
Sometimes I scream - Sometimes I swear
Sometimes I hit things - Sometimes I throw them

I don't know if you knew
But sometimes I think of you
I guess I've been thinking about you a lot
It's already been seven weeks
I don't know why I've been counting
But I guess I have
But I guess you know that by now

I could stand out front and sing Eagles songs that I sing in my set, but I think people enjoy watching me sing and play the drums. It seems to fascinate people. I don't know why.

I Dont Know Why I Write

I don't know why I write
I write every night
life can get confusing
Absolutely nothing is black and white
Gotta take a step back if you have to ask if it's alright

Life gets a little confusing when your living for the fun
every single nights fucked up and your alone when it's done

Life gets a little confusing when your living for the love
because the sacrifices we make can actually fit like a glove

If you want to live that life
Go ahead don't think twice
Regrets are the only thing that can break and ruin a life

I don't even know what I'm doing with mine

A Dark Past

My past is dark
It's full of pain and tears
My past is my story
My past made me stronger
People still don't know why my past is dark
But I will tell you
No more hiding for me

My past is red stained razors
I admit I did cut
But, I will no more
My closest friend was the only one that knew
Me and her alike in so many ways
We helped each other through thick and thin

My future is bright and happy
I am loved and always will be loved
In my future I will not shed a tear
For I will be surrounded by loved ones
My past is erased I have no regrets
My life is better oh..so much better

I Know Why The Suicide Dies

I know why the suicide dies
I know his secret wheres and whys
I know all right, why the suicide dies
And you can bet, it's nothing pretty

I know why he's gone astray
It's all the words his brain kept saying
And never stayed quiet, till he went insane
Some was bad, but some just petty

He couldn't stop thinking; I don't know why
And part was truth and part was lie
Scary things, that made him cry
And don't ever think, it was pretty

It wasn't romantic, it wasn't cool
He opened his veins like a bloody fool
He wanted to stop that unraveling spool
Still, you could never be ready

He tried to save the man inside
The ones whose wounds were opened wide
It was far too late, to consider pride
But it was never pretty.

I Now Know Why

(I now know why is the second verse of don't know why,
The change of name explains the importance of the sun in the sky)

cause now I'm just a lost soul in my own town
I keep walking to no where with my head down
you wanna hear me but I can't find a noun
my heart is so empty its like a house
remember what it used to be like
we'd had freinds every night
he sang a song and you played a tune
I was so lonley in a crowded room
celebrating departure
on this sunday theres no our father
for all his good he makes it harder
on his cloudy day he makes it darker
so I do what I do best and run
one bullet awaits through the eye of a gun
I find our little house of fun
I'm just waiting for the sun
cause when it rises I won't need you to come.

I Don't Know Why This Sadness Is Me

I dont know why this sadness is me,
And why depression has suddenly come -
It seems as if I am empty alone
And nowhere and nothing knows
Just what I was.

I am deeper into what I do not want to be
Then I know how to go out of-

Oh these games of despair
How often have I played them in the past-

Let me walk outside
Let me feel the light
Let me read an interesting page
Let the time for Shul come and let me get to my Siddur again-

Anything anything
But the down of this now
Which by my writing is already somewhat less,
And only disturbance
Deep disturbance
Anxiety -

Why?

I will get out of this soon I tell myself-
When I get up from this chair
And do something, anything else
The door, the light, the light the outside
A walk up the hill to Shul will save me.

The People We Don't Want To Know

From pay check to pay check many working class people have two jobs,
then it all dries up and there is no work and manual labourers are
called work shy…. I knew a woman with three jobs she was tired coming
home, yet boiled potatoes and fried fish for her children before falling
asleep, coughing a lot. She had tuberculosis and sent to a sanatorium,
and the children sent to foster homes. Her illness caused by unhygienic
home, people from the social services said. No one asked why a woman
should hold down three jobs to fed her children and no one said she was
a “deserving” poor whatever this word means. This inequity will go on till
we understand poverty is not a choice but a mishap of birth, few escape,
those who do will always carry the dishonour, the mark of Cain, by being
more hateful of poverty and branding the poor lazy. As the average actor
who got a role in a film that made him famed, his hate his own class, poor
himself once, reveals his fear of slipping back to poverty again; he harms
his flesh and blood in an attempt to get rid of his own stench of privation.
But the Haves can smell an imposter, but they do like money so perhaps
his daughter will make it to the The People We Don't Want To Knowball.

I Don't Know If I Heard The Thing Itself

I don't know if I heard the thing itself,
Or perhaps the idea of the thing-
I do know
It ceased to be,
as all things cease to be-
Even the wind will die one day,
And our Earth have no one to sing songs of lament for it.
