    Broken Pieces (slam Poem)

    Love obeys no rules it can break the law in many ways and often does. Love can steal your heart and freely say I committed no crime! For loves not alone in it's guilt I shouldn't have been so willing, I shouldn't have been so trusting, I shouldn't have been so naive to...

    Smoke And Ash

    I've imagined you standing before me looking into my eyes as deeply as I look into yours. And with one kiss I am entirely yours... Your hands all over my body discovering the undiscovered. My heart racing My breath trying to catch up. I am overcome by wild and heavy...

    The Craftsmen (a Poem)

    You cannot count the pieces of a broken heart nor can you mend it. Once shattered like fine glass no matter the skill and no matter how gentle the fingers of the craftsmen there will always be flaws left unamended. And you cannot count their tears for they are as many...

    Remains

    We pulled through the gates, past the caretaker’s office and made the slow deliberate drive to my fathers’ grave. This was to be my first visit to the cemetery. The year since his passing, my mother had kept dad’s ashes in a beautiful blue marble box. I was a...

    A Return of the Lost?

    A Sea Of Love (poem)

    The darkness surrounds her like the cloak of eternal night. The air is thick and cool, The smell of the sea fills her lungs, The taste of salt upon her tongue she wonder's weather its the water or the tears shes cried. And despite the madness around her she longs for her...

    Some music to paint to,
