Craig Mize Poems

So many dreams, so many goals, so much potential.
I was suppose to be great, I was suppose to be a success,
I was suppose to something. I was brought up to be a strong man.
These simple problems was not suppose to phase me.

If I had just one more day, that smile would never go away,
And I'll make sure that this would be a better day.
Hold you tight and wipe away them tears of sorrow,
I know that it's raining today, but I'll promise a brighter tomorrow

He is lurking through our neighborhoods,
Slithering around like a snake in the grass.
He preys on our young and innocent.
He will smile in their unknowing faces,

Dear Broken Hearted:

To sit and look at a person face to face their soul is what you seek but their eyes are closed. To believe in the unbelievable is to believe in the unreal. To buy friends when thier friendship is never bought. To find love when love is never sought. You see even a fool knows that love loves nobody, but in my heart you will find that I love you and I hope and pray that you love my too.

Getting love is hard to do

It will leave you sad, lonely, and blue

The books are everywhere from wall to wall
My fingertips are filled with ecstasy
As my mind is lusting for knowledge
They say a picture is worth a thousand words

As the wind blows the tree limbs wild and freely
And the leaves dance on the ground so beautifully,
My eyes wonder carelessly to the flower bed
A field covered in blues, violets, yellows, and reds

Last night I cried a thousand tears over you
My heart broke into a thousand pieces
I asked myself why a thousand times
And a thousand I never found an answer

I'm all alone searching for this little piece of happiness,
For this little bit of joy, for this little piece of freedom.
But I shall never find it; not here not now.
Why did I have to be hypnotized by this drug,


I lay awake at night trying to avoid sleep,
Terrified of the nightmares that invade my dreams.
Horrible pictures is steady replaying in my thoughts,
Making me to afraid to even close my eyes.

I am blinded by passion
And is lusting for love
Steady searching for that special one
That angel sent from the heavens above

Lord I'm coming to you one more time
Pleading and crying my heart and soul out to you
I'm feeling more trapped than ever
I know that I did wrong in my past

To be trapped in the Darkness

It seems like light fails to enter into the opens

The alarmed sounded,
Damn 6: 30 comes quickly I thought.
The aroma of bacon cooking
Flowed through the house.

Hey Nigger

Excuse me sir but to whom are you speaking these things

Am I my brother's keeper? Is he mine?
I heard there was a thin line between love and hate
Making one wonder just how much one's heart can take.
I promised to be there for you thru thick and thin, and vice versa


Listen and feel my words

Understand me like you hear the birds

You say that I never notice you,

You say that I don't care,

The Best Poem Of Craig Mize

Broken Dreams 'a Divorce Story'

So many dreams, so many goals, so much potential.
I was suppose to be great, I was suppose to be a success,
I was suppose to something. I was brought up to be a strong man.
These simple problems was not suppose to phase me.
But now every little problem put a little bit of the worlds pressure on
me. I worked hard at everything that I have done. I have put my time,
blood, sweat, & tears into everything good in my life. But in a blink of
an eye everything I worked for was taken away from me. All that it
took was for you my wife of 12 years, the person that said that she
would love me forever, the very woman that told me 'I do.' Decided
that she wasn't in love with me anymore. She took the house, the couch & chairs, the cars, the kids, all of my money, & even the dog.
She left me a broken man, lost with no sense of direction. I was suppose to be better than this. I am suppose to be better than this.
How could I allow one person to hurt me like this, to break me like this?
I was a man with so many goals, so many dreams, so much potential.
Now I'm a man just looking for a way to survive day to day
