Part 1 of the duet poem series I wrote with my friend Alex Kennedy! This is probably going to break the record of longest duet poem on WordPress lol! So brace yourself my friends! 😉
Alex is an awesome writer and I am a big fan of his work. He writes some of the best dark fiction you have ever read!
And I adore writing with him! 🙂
I highly recommend you check out his blog, if you haven’t already–> http://youngadultfictionblog.com/
I tell you, this guy is AWESOME!
So, we wrote a duet together that’s a little different than usual. 🙂
Enjoy this first part and don’t forget to come back for more!
The Beautiful, the Bad and the Psychotic
Alex & Just Patty
My life has gone too far,
A nice new start,
A wiped clean slate,
A white clear page,
I had to touch it and muck it up,
Can’t fight fear with fate.
My emotions are intangible,
Inflammable oceans ferociously,
Force me at such velocity,
To cause harm or go to sleep,
I’ve lost my calm now I have been tossed out on the streets.
Mark my words this is hell I’m living in,
My dark clouds are circling the ceiling,
A problem child that no one is dealing with,
I am a wild flower which grows in the shadows of a kiss.
These words are my own,
Geronimo, I will die alone,
A cannonball, I can’t fly no more,
An animal, what do I fight for when the fight has gone?
You and I know,
This is not a suicide note,
But if your eyes caught, a mere glimpse,
Of a pure light wrote,
Then my job here is done,
For your time and hope.
Your life has just begun
A new day’s dawn
A beautiful opportunity
A fresh untouched chance
There will always be a tomorrow
To fight fear, courage is the key
Untangle the mess inside
Chains that hold you furiously
Without a sense of empathy
Invading dreams or keep you up
Out there, at least you will be able to breathe
You are the one holding yourself back
Clear the air so you can survive
A problem is only a problem before you deal with it
Wild flowers grow strong on barren land
Words can a heart turn into stone
But no one is ever truly alone
A bullet, reserved for thoughts hunting you
A different chosen path, would you dare?
You and I know
Only the strong know how to cope
So if you look up, and you will catch
A glimpse of what can be
Hope grows on light
But those living in the dark
Can never see…
