Song Lyric Sunday. It’s Hell.

It’s Sunday and time for Jim Adams to challenge us to find more music to share on Song Lyric Sunday. This week our prompt words are Misery, Anguish and Torment.

First up with Misery is Narroon 5. I did think of the Beatles but I do prefer this song. ūü¶č

Misery” is a song by American band¬†Maroon 5. It was released on June 22, 2010 by¬†A&M Octone Records, as the first single from their third studio album¬†Hands All Over¬†(2010). Written by¬†Adam Levine,¬†Jesse Carmichael, and¬†Sam Farrar, the song is about the narrator finding himself in a difficult situation when a relationship fades.¬†“Why won’t you answer me? / The silence is slowly killing me / Girl you really got me bad,” he states in the lyrics.The song documents the decay of a relationship, familiar territory for the band. Frontman, Levine told¬†MTV News: “‘Misery’ is about the desperation of wanting someone really badly in your life but having it be very difficult. Kind of what all the songs I write are about. I’m not treading on new ground, but I think a lot of people ‚Äď including myself ‚Äď deal with that all the time. Relationships are difficult, and it’s good therapy to write about them.”

Now we can up the agony with Anguish by the amazing Ann Wilson .

Ann Dustin Wilson (born June 19, 1950) is an American musician best known as the lead singer and songwriter of the rock band Heart.

Wilson has been a member of Heart since the early 1970s; her younger sister,¬†Nancy Wilson, is also a member of the band. The first hard rock band fronted by women, Heart released numerous albums throughout the late 1970s and 1980s; the albums¬†Dreamboat Annie¬†(1975), and¬†Little Queen¬†(1977) generated chart singles such as “Magic Man”, “Crazy on You”, and “Barracuda” Heart has sold over 35 million records worldwide and has placed top 10 albums on the¬†Billboard¬†200¬†in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990 and 2010s.

Wilson was ranked no. 78 in¬†Hit Parader’s¬†2006 list of “Greatest Heavy Metal Vocalists of All Time”.¬†In 2013, she was inducted into the¬†Rock and Roll Hall of Fame¬†as a member of Heart.

Sorry I can’t find the lyrics.

Finally Torment is in the last verse.

Herman’s Hermits¬†are an English¬†beat rock¬†and¬†pop¬†group formed in 1964 in¬†Manchester, originally called Herman and His Hermits and featuring lead singer¬†Peter Noone. Produced by¬†Mickie Most, they charted with number ones in the UK and in America, where they ranked as one of the most successful acts in the¬†Beatles-led¬†British Invasion. They also appeared in four films, two of them vehicles for the band.

I loved this group and went to see their films nothing of which can I remember anything ūüėú‚ėļÔłŹ‚ėļÔłŹ.

Jezebel” is a 1951¬†popular¬†song written by American songwriter¬†Wayne Shanklin. It was recorded by¬†Frankie Laine¬†with the¬†Norman Luboff¬†Choir and¬†Mitch Miller¬†and his orchestra on April 4, 1951 and released by¬†Columbia Records¬†as catalog number 39367. The record reached #2 on the¬†Billboard¬†chart and was a million seller. The B-side, “Rose, Rose, I Love You“, was a hit too and reached #3.The title refers to the biblical woman¬†Jezebel, a wicked, Baal-worshipping Phoenician princess who ruled Israel as queen to King Ahab. Jezebel’s story is recounted in I Kings, a book of the¬†Old Testament.

“Jezebel”
(originally by Frankie Laine)

If ever a devil was born
Without a pair of horns
It was you, Jezebel, it was you!
If ever a pair of eyes
Promised paradise
It was you, Jezebel, it was you!
If ever a devil’s plan
Was made to torment man
Decieving me
Grieving me
Leaving me blue
Jezebel, it was you!

If ever a devil was born
Without a pair of horns
It was you, Jezebel, it was you!
If ever a pair of eyes
Promised paradise
It was you, Jezebel, it was you!
If ever a devil’s plan
Was made to torment man
Decieving me
Grieving me
Leaving me blue
Jezebel, it was you!

Even had I never known
A lover such as you
Forsaking dreams and goals
For the silent scorn
Of your charms, Jezebel!

If ever a devil’s plan
Was made to torment man
Decieving me
Drieving me
Leaving me blue
Jezebel, it was you!

Night and day
Every way
Oh Jezebel!
Jezebel

Jezebel!

Happy Sunday Everyone ūü¶čūüíú

Tree of hope

Today  I  visited a friend in  a psychiatric unit :  One  wall  was  decorated  with  the  Tree of Hope  logo. This  is  what I  saw  and  felt.

Tree of hope
Is this a joke
Lost souls wandering
Bored staff pondering.

Angry women strutting
Locked door are shutting
Tempers are  fraying.
Any point in praying.

One  step forward three back .

Covers for  the care  they lack.

Man shouting  he needs  his phone

His  eyes  ask will he find his way home

Tree of hope
Is this a joke
Lost souls wandering
Bored staff pondering.

Acrostic: HELP ME

Hopelessness  holding  me  down, my spirits  sinking  spiraling  round.

Ever near  the  cracks  of  doom  and I  am going down, underground.

Lonely  phantoms  running  skeletal fingers  through  my  messed up  hair

Pending  unhappy endings  awaiting  me, the  demons  are  coming , this  is  not  fair.

Miasma  curling,  swirling  round, screams of  anguish  the only  sound

Even the  moon desserts  me, in  the dark  I weep in  grief I  am bound!

Day 15 Nano Poblano :The Chink of Light.

Look for the chink in the wall of water,

Look for that light that will make the dark alter.

Walk the long bridge that goes into the dark close your ears to sound of screams,

They are only your fears released into the nightmare of your dreams.

Walk bare foot along the bridge unless you slip,

Tread slowly don’t rush you don’t want to trip.

There are no railings to save you if you fall

No safety net to save you, no nothing at all.

Look towards the chink of light

It is far away and deep into the night.

Steadily is the only way to proceed

One step at a time sadly there is no use for speed.

Don’t look up and don’t look down

Keep your eyes ahead  don’t you dare turn round.

Lest you slip, lest you fall no need too scream no need to call

There is no help for you if you fall.

grief

Welcome to my world

I have tried so hard to fight that wall

To cross the bridge and smash it all.

The further I go forward the further in to the distance it retreats

I have run, and I have crept and still the pattern repeats.

I try as I might, I try as I may

But pain is the same by night and by day.

I must keep going I cannot give in,

To reach the chink of light even if my chances are thin.

I can’t go round it I cannot pass through

There seems no way over. Help me, what am I to do?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yea Mark 

Lost Hope

What good are these wings  to me

They have never helped me to be free.

What use have I for these eyes

Pluck them out, ignore my plaintiff cries.

 

What need have I of  these arms

None, none if not for your charms

What use my soul what use  my heart

Your harsh  words have rent them in half.

 

What point  my life what hope have I

I am replete, forlorn I need to die.

What good these wings I ask you with a sigh

What good to me who  can no longer fly.

 

The Apple Fell

The apple fell from the tree

It hit the ground and made straight for me.

The trail of maggots  climbed my legs

They entered me and sucked  the dregs.

 

They coloured  my view, trapped inside my eyes

Whispering in  my ears abhorrent lies that turned  the tides

Of  ills  besetting me. They made feast upon my brains

Their waste  clogging up  my  arteries  and veins.

 

Filling  my womb  and ovaries

Damning up  my bladder, my waters  burst uncontrollably.

They  turned  my milk, so what, I was now baron

They pushed out  my hair  Until I resembled carrion.

 

I beg them to set  me free,they did not

I begged them  for peace and  for the pain to stop.

They  did not listen nor  did they care

They gave not a shit ¬†for how I’d fair.

 

No one listened  no one cared. So long  as it was not them

Who suffered. Their eyes avoid me again and again.

They pumped me full of chemicals , bags  and lines and  needles

It made  me worse, I curse them to suffer me such evils.

 

They, though not the maggots, mopped  my brow and  soothed my pain

They, though not  the maggots, begged me to fight and fight again.

I tried, I really did I fought, I screamed I cried.

They, the maggots  got what they wanted. I lost the  battle and died.

 

At last, at last I watched  them fly,

I kissed those maggots goodbye.

Find ¬†the cure don’t ¬†let the apple ¬†fall from the tree

Don’ t let those maggots free.

Another Poem  for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Let it cease

It hurts it,  hurts  deep in the pit  of  my  stomach eating  away  at  my  soul.

Dragging  at  me  clawing, clawing ripping at  me  devouring  me  whole.

OH it hurts  so much  I am feeling sick it is  pushing  me over the edge.

Why does it happen,  why again and again  piecing my heart  with a wedge.

 

Pity, pity for ¬†God’s sake ¬†take ¬†pity ¬†on me

Give  me  a break loosen  your hold, and  set  me free.

Stop dragging ¬†me ¬†through ¬†the fire’s ¬†hottest ¬†part

Cease pulling  at  my  scabs  and feeding  the dogs my  heart

 

Leave  me alone  let  this  pain cease.

Go, take  your hate  with  you and leave me in peace.

I am done  with your torture given with  a smile.

I refuse  to go  meekly  to your  lovingly prepared funeral pyre.

NaBloPoMo : Woman in Anguish.

Why does it hurt so much why do I have to suffer so

I am so bloody angry  with life ,more angry than anyone will ever know.

I am tired of taking all this shit  why should it always be  me, 

That bears the brunt of everything damn it all, I want to be free.

 

Free from all the worry free from all the grief and strife 

Families are so much grief I want a quiet life.

Why ¬†can’t things ¬†be happy ¬†just like story book lies

I want to enjoy what others have instead of sorrows and trials.

 

All I want is happiness, free from moans and arguments

But this is never what I get  my life is not heaven sent.

Nothing ever comes my way but unhappiness and pain

Sod it it  all I have had enough.  I just want to run and not come back ever again.

 

 

Give Me Back

You break my will and you don’t even know

When I tell you this you say it is not so.

You never recall the things you said or did

Sadly I do but they are safe, in a box with a strong lid.

 

Many and ugly are the mental scars I have carried

Like a cat with a mouse  my feelings you harried .

Times have been when I have shaken like a leaf

You have stolen what is me . I want my self worth back you thief!

 

 

New Life

Sunshine through the window touches on her hair She is a beauty, a pale faced red head, fair beyond compare. In front of her a vase of flowers ¬†filled with classic blooms arranged with love Concealed with the bright petals her avian friends hides He is¬†attracted by the petals hues which he had spotted as he flew above. He has no idea how much this bouquet ¬†means what importance on it rides. ¬† The woman is unhappy she does not know what to do. The flowers are from her man Who has¬†deceived her, they are a request for¬†forgiveness. Sadly she doubts she can. He’s let her down one time too many, taken her love and not returned her any. A cloud crosses the sun casting a shadow on the flowers,her gentle bird flies away. Seizing ¬†the vase she rushes to the bin, life has finally dropped the waiting penny. Alighting gracefully in his cage her bird begins to sing, The woman smiles as at long last she ¬†decides he too will be cast away With the flowers. And her new life can begin.
