Life On A Moonstone

Life right here is so predictable.
My heart's so tired, so cold;
I had to go and be the only fool.
My heart, it once stood out so bold.
Being here is oh-so similar every day;
Things had better pick up soon,
Or else my new heart may stray.
I wish I could fly now - to the moon.

Right here, it's always filled with sadness
And I don't think that we can change that.
This world, it's always filled with madness,
I don't think that's something we can work at.
Life on a moonstone,
A place to call my own.

I am finding this so awkward.
I just wish I could stay amongst the fields
As being here makes my heart feel as it should,
Because here I can use the hills as shields.
Being here is oh-so similar every day;
Always playing that same old tune,
So let the song change now, I say!
I wish I could fly now - to the moon.

Right here, it's always filled with sadness
And I don't think that we can change that.
This world, it's always filled with madness,
I don't think that's something we can work at.
Life on a moonstone,
A place to call my own.
Life on a moonstone,
A place to call our own.
EDIT 20th Sept. 2011: Even when this was uploaded this was a few years old, and I likely regard this as one of my worst, yet earliest, pieces. Makes me think that I've probably reasonably improved since this though and the subject does mean something to me somewhat; it was pretty ambigious and a lot of the lines are non-sensical and random except for the 'Moonstone.' Moonstone is what myself and my friends affectionately call a big rock (and its surrounding area) that's at the top of the large hill in my town. It was a central hang-out spot for my Saturday 'weekend group', and thusly holds some really precious memories for me, even more-so since this was uploaded.

Please keep in mind this is old work, and if you look at the comments keep the same thing in mind. This was my early teens and I'm not that lame now, bro.

8. I don't think this is one of your worst poems. Honestly, I think it's one of your best :) Everyone can relate to the words in this poem. And you know why? It's because life gets a little bit hectic and deep down inside you feel trapped and you feel as if you don't belong anywhere. We all want our own moonstone. :)

FORGET THE CHILDREN - SAVE YOURSELVES!

It doesn't appear to be working. If not, I'll copy the files to my pod and let you take it off of that for tomorrow.
So either way, you'll have the files by tomorrow.

Seriously? Shame, I was about to suggest that we go back there again at some point.
I like my memories of that place.

I mean i love that place, but i dunno it brings back memories. Good memories of my heart and then i threw them all away, i don't wanna dig it back up. I would rather bury it.

No bad memories should be held of that place, though, as nothing bad happened there. XD

Yeah but the good memories i had with Kieran i wanna bury and leave them there to rest. Good memories or not, i don't wanna dig them up as i know myself i think and i might ending up liking him. He was the only guy who loved me for being myself and by digging it up again, will bring them all flooding it. I sound so cheesey to you now surely? XD

Toadsanime Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
Not cheesy, but good memories should be buried. You shared good memories with us all up there, and it's not the only place that holds good memories for our group.
Besides, two people in our weekend group haven't actually been up there before! I liked chilling out up there during Summer, as it was cooler there than in most places and it was relaxing. Plus playing our running game thing is fun! And birds attack Kieran there, of course! =D

And no, he's not the only guy that loved you for being you. I love you for being you, of course, and I'm pretty sure the rest of our group does, too. ^_-

Heh, I know what you meant.
There's always going to be someone else out there for you, so just consider him as a friend, or you know you'll just get hurt or something again. Keep that clearly in mind, and just make new good memories, rather than digging up old ones! =D
