    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...

    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...

    Some music to paint to,

    artist. In fear every day, every evening, He calls her aloud from above, Carefully watched for a reason, Painstaking devotion and love, Surrendered to self preservation, From others who care for themselves. A blindness that touches perfection, But hurts just like anything else...

    Remains
