Ayar West – “No Love”

Ayar West – “No Love”

Inspired by Lupe Fiasco’s “Battle Scars”

 

The wounds may heal
but the feeling never does
when you’re at war with love
I’ve never let a wound ruin me
I feel like that’s what ruined me
wounds that never really healed
from cupid’s arrows when he went on a shooting spree
someone come and finally set me free
feeling stupid cuz it’s always been me versus me
the scars are left as proof
as tears keep soaking through

this world, this heart, this soul
The things I just don’t know
I wish I never loved
I wish I never touched
I wish I could stop loving her so much
feeling kind of blue
cuz i dont have a clue
why noone’s here to share this view

I’d rather stay in the dark
because here I have no name
the weather isn’t gonna change
so this game will forever remain the same
I need to love the heaven above me
the one that leads men to this hell
that we find ourselves dwelling in
look into my heart
see the scars, the cracks, the brusies
from the bars, glasses and cruises
the words she used to let me in
are the same that lead to heroin
but i’m strong and wont give in
I thought I found my hero in
this world that i’m living in
I gave her my fragile everything
she pawned it off like a game of chess
not realizing it was a treasured chest
everyone watched as it fell
and my soul decended into hell
with my heart scattered all over the floor
they all just walked past me out the door
I shed tears because I dont even know what happened anymore
one day the truth will come and shatter their decor
I’m trying to figure it out for my own
I’m a lover not a fighter
Thinking I can do it through a poem
this fragmented heart will never be at peace
like shattered glass it can never be one piece
peace by piece is what i’m preaching
but it’s hard when i’m not breathing
look at what i’ve become
crushed everything i’ve touched
ruined everything I’ve loved
who the fuck would want to be
with someone as unstable as me
I know i should let it go
but the fear of the unknown
sends me back into the zone

feeling kind of blue
cuz i dont have a clue
why noone’s here to share this view
this world, this heart, this soul
The things I just don’t know
I wish I never loved
I wish I never touched
I wish I could stop loving her so much

someone help, I need a crutch
the pain just hurts too much
It shouldn’t have happened but I let it
She set me on fire, but I never felt so alive
Now I’m down on the ground screaming screw it
The best medicine is to not let her win
so I can rise above and become king

About The Author

My biggest struggle is myself. My temptations and desires distract me, the material world blinds me, my unforgivable youth saddens me and frequently discourages me. "Sometimes I feel like letting go, so I can roam around the wilderness, see it for what it really is uncorrupted and filter-less". Some people are so poor, all they have is money. Our struggle is to be the best that we can be by living a balanced life, both fully and righteously. It's never too late, but remember that man cannot remake himself without suffering, for he is both the marble and the sculptor.
