“Doves” May Cry But They Don’t Die

R.I.P. Prince (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016)

I salute his departure with my most favorite song by none other than Prince himself.

In case you want to sing along:

“Dig if you will the picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can you my darling
Can you picture this?

Dream if you can a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and you

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (So cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father, too bold
Maybe you’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (She’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
You’ve got the butterflies all tied up
Don’t make me chase you
Even doves have pride

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world so cold? (World so cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father, too bold
Maybe you’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (She’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (A world that’s so cold)
Maybe you’re just too demanding (Maybe, maybe I’m like my father)
Maybe I’m just like my father, too bold (Ya know he’s too bold)
Maybe you’re just like my mother (Maybe you’re just like my mother)
She’s never satisfied (She’s never, never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other (Why do we scream, why)
This is what it sounds like

When doves cry
When doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry)
When doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry)

Don’t Cry (Don’t Cry)

When doves cry
When doves cry
When doves cry

When Doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry, doves cry
Don’t cry
Darling don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t don’t cry”

Mommy

Daddy

Oh, mother! It’s been four years since I heard your melodic voice, seen your beautiful face, smelled your fragrant perfume, tasted your homemade cooking, and felt your broken heart that now mirrors my own. For so long, it was easier to joke around and hate you for disowning me, but somewhere along the way, I found the tear-stained strength to be gentle and kind towards your antique memory. I don’t know where you are. I don’t know if thoughts of me ever cross your mind. Where are you?! I need you! Oh, mother! I’m sorry! I forgive you! It feels like you passed away! I don’t think you love me anymore! I want to caress your mascara cheek and wipe away all your pain, all your hatred that keeps you from turning the page of a fairy tale that never reached its tranquil end. Please be happy! But I can’t turn the page for you. There’s too much serenity in my own story. I can feel the soil slipping from my fingers as the sadness takes over me and waters yet another loving, traumatic memory. I stare six feet below me into the vast unknown in hopes that something…. anything will grow between us again.

Daddy

There’s a darkness inside of us. People notice it right away. However, it’s a kind of darkness that doesn’t attempt to destroy our light but rather, the darkness preserves it. It’s hard to laugh and it’s hard to smile but when we do, we shine the brightest. We have both done very horrible things to people in psychological response to our own traumas. Naturally, people tend to deviate from our lives slowly but surely until the loneliness becomes the only thing that’s real. Yet the loneliness isn’t real at all. Although I haven’t seen you in years, we do talk from time to time.You are one of the last remaining people in this whole world that I truly love. Even though I got my bad luck from you, I also inherited your big heart, your emotional resilience, and your good looks. We are beautiful people so misunderstood and wrongfully misjudged. I am so proud to be your son. I understand why you left and I have faith that you’ll return. I love you with every inch of my heart and soul. Now and forever more.

Artificial Love

This nightclub seems so ominous,
But the way to you is crystal clear,
Why can’t fate confine the incubus?
Let’s escape the crowd with our souls to bare,

If you want,
We can type our lives away,
Or I can confess my intentions,
We can go to my place,

We can have the real thing,
Or just make artificial love,
We can have the real thing,
Or just make artificial love,
Time doesn’t mend broken hearts,
So let’s fill our empty voids tonight,
We can have the real thing,
Or just make artificial love

You’re killing me under these sheets,
I don’t have the balls to do it myself,
Using me until your ammo depletes,
Cus you grew bored of shooting yourself,

If you want,
We can cuddle after,
Let’s make believe you really care,
Before I leave with my ruffled up hair

We can have the real thing,
Or just make artificial love,
We can have the real thing,
Or just make artificial love,
Time doesn’t mend broken hearts,
So let’s fill our empty voids tonight,
We can have the real thing,
Or just make artificial love

In fear of another heartbreak,
I feign not having a heart at all,
Shattered glass pieced back together only forms a web of lies,
I know this isn’t love,
Red flags ebb like genocide,
For we rebuke the patience to have the real thing

So let’s just make artificial love

“Like a Comet” by Mr. Universe

Steven Universe fills me with this nostalgia that I haven’t felt in many years. One of their cute little songs on the show is called “Like a Comet” by a young Greg Universe. It happened during a flashback episode about how Greg met Rose Quartz. I’m totally obsessed with Steven Universe as you can see from my previous post, Steven Universe took my breath away . Cartoon Network needs to make more episodes at a much faster pace. I binge watched all the shows in the series so far and I’m just craving more. I wanted to take a short break from my usual depressing poems and check-ins for a change. So enjoy the video and if you wanna sing along, I posted the lyrics below. The One-Eyed Angel has no shame. 

“Like a Comet” lyrics:

Some
Say I have no direction
That I’m a light speed distraction
That’s a knee-jerk reaction

Still
This is the final frontier
Everything is so clear
To my destiny I steer

This life in the stars is all I’ve ever known
Stars and stardust and infinite space is my only home

But the moment that I hit the stage
Thousands of voices are calling my name
And I know in my heart it’s been worth it all of the while

And as my albums fly off of the shelves
Handing out autographed pics of myself
This life I chose isn’t easy
But sure is one heck of a ride

At the moment that I hit the stage
I hear the universe calling my name
And I know deep down in my heart I have nothing to fear

And as the solar wind blows through my hair
Knowing I have so much more left to share
A wandering spirit who’s tearing its way through the cold atmosphere

I fly like a comet
Soar like a comet
Crash like a comet
I’m just a comet

The Queen is taking over

I watch,
As she steals your heart,
I notice she is draining your soul,

Bear witness,
To total indiscretion,
This kind of love is be and end all,

She sits upon the throne,
Of her guarded fortress,
Completely reliant,
On your kinship,
She bore your child,
Now you must stay awhile,

Stay awhile,

I see,
The strength of men is useless,
When women call the shots for everything,

A chess game,
Protecting the king’s piece,
But it seems the Queen is more powerful,

She sits upon the throne,
Plotting her revenge,
Completely shrouding,
All doubt in you,
She bore your child,
Now you must stay awhile,

Stay awhile,

The Queen is taking over,
Something you’re so used to,
The Queen is taking over,
There’s nothing I can do to save you,

Your love for her has made you a fool,
But as your ally I must pretend it’s cool,
The ambience of the kingdom whole,
Must succumb to oblivion alone,

The Queen is taking over,
Something you’re so used to,
The Queen is taking over,
There’s nothing I can do to save you,

She bore your child,
Now you must stay awhile,

Stay awhile

Fallen Angel [In love with a psychic]

Let me take care of you,
Let me nurse you back to life,
Let me save you,
From yourself tonight,
You don’t usually,
Have the luxury,
To fall into pieces,
Well I am here now,
Let me put you back together,
Stay forever,

My fallen hero,
Fallen angel,
No longer the man I once known,
Necromancy,
And power divine,
Requires sacrifice,
Don’t let the evil,
Predetermined future,
Take hold of your life,
My fallen hero,
Fallen angel,
Let me save you from yourself tonight,

It must be hard,
To know what is to come,
Cus if I knew my future,
I would lose my mind tonight,
My faith resides,
Forever more,
In my prayers,
For you to see,
The error of your ways,
And the end of all days,

My fallen hero,
Fallen angel,
No longer the man I once known,
Necromancy,
And power divine,
Requires sacrifice,
Don’t let the evil,
Predetermined future,
Take hold of your life,
My fallen hero,
Fallen angel,
Let me save you from yourself tonight,

You sacrificed,
All your human traits,
To gain the powers of the gods,

Was it worth it?
Discarding my love,
For something overrated,

My fallen hero,
Fallen angel,
No longer the man I once known,
Necromancy,
And power divine,
Requires sacrifice,
Don’t let the evil,
Predetermined future,
Take hold of your life,
My fallen hero,
Fallen angel,
Let me save you from yourself tonight

Carry The Burden

Verse 1:
The last supper approaches,
Extravagant cuisine before
the execution,
No one in here cares if I live or die,
But I suffer for their sins regardless,

Chorus (1):
Even Jesus didn’t quite fit in,
In a world that tends to sin,
Why must I always carry the burden?

Even Jesus didn’t understand,
Why curiosity gnaws at man,
Why do I only do the best I can?

Verse 2:
The angry mob approaches,
Yelling obscenities before
The sacrifice,
Everyone wants to watch me fail,
But all I failed to do was save them from themselves,

Chorus (2):

Even Jesus didn’t quite fit in,
In a world that tends to sin,
Why must I always carry the burden?

Even Jesus didn’t understand,
The evil that garners within man,
Why do I only do the best i can?

Bridge:
Why does curiosity gnaw at man,
The evil that garners within man,
It only takes a second to screw up carelessly,
But it takes a thousand years to repent carefully,

Chorus (1&2)

Outro:
Willingly,
Calmly,
Will I offer my life for you,
Hands raised in the air,
Burning flesh everywhere,
I’d do it all just to save you from yourself

Darwin’s theory, an original song

Verse one:
I wake up in the morning feeling quite alright,
I don’t need anyone to hold at night,
Sometimes life can be a brutal fight,
But I am resilient baby,

Don’t sweat the small stuff it’s no big deal,
Just pray to God I have faith that He’s real,
Getting through the day may feel surreal,
But I am a blessed baby,

Do you really wanna give up?
Do you really wanna fall in love?
Do you really wanna know the truth?
Did you know that life is cruel?

Chorus:
Adapt,
Survive,
That’s what humans do,
We aren’t any different from animals,

We laugh,
We cry,
That’s what humans do,
Life has it’s ups and downs,

The strong ones prevail,
The weak ones always fail,
Will you live to tell your tale,
Or will you surrender and bail?

Verse two:
Tell me everything you think I wanna hear,
But you will never fool me that I swear,
I dance to life’s music with my soul to bare,
Cuz I am hopeful baby,

Nothing will stop me from achieving my goals,
I get money just fine without stripper poles,
I play the lead and
not supporting roles,
Cuz I am important baby,

Do you really wanna give up?
Do you really wanna fall in love?
Do you really wanna know the truth?
Did you know that life is cruel?

Chorus:
Adapt,
Survive,
That’s what humans do,
We aren’t any different from animals,

We laugh,
We cry,
That’s what humans do,
Life has its ups and downs,

The strong ones prevail,
The weak ones always fail,
Will you live to tell your tale,
Or will you surrender and bail?

Bridge:
Darwin’s theory states,
Natural selection,
Will eliminate the weak,
The weak the weak the weak,
Will be replaced,
They’ll all be replaced,
By none other than the brave!

Chorus
