Corey Jones Poems
Locks and Keys
You've knocked and entered over a thousand times, but the one time I was silent was the last knock I ever heard, it's sad, because if you'd have knocked just once more you could have entered. Giving up so easily must've been the easy way. Who could've guessed you would leave me so soon,
What have they done to you? you used to be so full of light. i was once that way, but now I'm as gloomy as the rain.
A Lovers Haiku
I just look at you, Smiling that big pretty smile and I fall once more.
It was sudden, like a bad dream come to life. She could see him there standing on his morals. Doing what he thought was right, for himself, his family, his country. The Gun was staring straight at her.
I always seemed melancholy to you You would say things And do things that made me happy And I was happy,
I thought about your smile today while waking down the Street. Memories came flooding in like rain. The way you looked at me when we'd fall back In love again. Of course we've had our ups and downs however nonetheless;
Letter To A Friend
I thought about you today When that song came on the radio The one you always played On our adventures down the road
These words you use and say to hurt me That cut so deep and always burn me That make me think I’m so unworthy That mock and bruise and seem untrustworthy
For the Record
For the Record It’s time to air this No more keeping it bottled inside I do love you
She held the gun in her hand, For the longest time As memories flashed throughout her eyes She looked at him,
I wanted to write something. A sad something to express how i feel. A story of woe and heartbreak, of tears and unhappiness.
I depend upon you It's true you know When I said I weren't as strong as the others, I meant it.
You smile at me The fakest smile I have ever seen. You don't mean it, I see the way you look when I walk by;
Letting life beat me That's what I am doing I'm never right Always wrong

You've knocked and entered over a thousand times,
but the one time I was silent was the last knock I ever heard,
it's sad, because if you'd have knocked just once more you could have entered. Giving up so easily must've been the easy way.
Who could've guessed you would leave me so soon,
destined to mourn the loss of love,
hidden away from the moon and the sun.
Crouching behind the walls I've built for myself that you were afraid to scale.
But I guess I can't blame you.
After all you're just human,
you're not an explorer meant to seek the heart
nor a ...
