    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...

    Broken Pieces (slam Poem)

    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...

    The Painting

    There was a woman more loved by one man than by all men on earth. He sang to her many love songs, He wrote her of his love in the most beautiful poetry that was a pleasure just to speak aloud. Even the worlds greatest poets envied his works. When spoke the words formed...

    A Return of the Lost?
