    Our heart. The most precious part of ourselves.

    Sometimes you just want to keep it to yourself. It has stacked shelves and shelves full of so much dirt and hurt. That now you don't even know your worth. But for what its worth your valued beyond measure. That No amount of pleasure can ever fulfill. The innate need to...

    So this is the second poem I've ever written.

    I'm curious what you all think. Please be honest. An Ode to Music: You are always there for me Even when no one else is When I'm worried you set me free You help calm me when I'm pissed Your melodies are like a potion That I can drink at any time You can evoke any emotion...

    VALENTINES Day Passion

    One day, well-rested,    You'll awake in your bed; As your pretty eyes focus,    On the rose by your head. And I'd be smiling if you were,    In love and elated; With high hopes you'd enjoy,    The goofy pancakes I created. They...

    My Car

    Why do they make cars so smart, every convenience in every part? Computers have their place, just not around me and my car. Why is that buzzer interrupting my peaceful day? I think they added it to make me go a little crazier. Unplug the fuse, it stops but no gas gauge. All...

    Who am I? Who am I without a dream?

    A dream deferred is a dream denied. Who am I without a dream? The inability to perceive a future is evident. Who am I without a dream? Without hope, without dreams. A person with no mobility to move forward. But dreams aren’t dead. Hope is still alive! I can feel it in...

    Mist In The Predawn Darkness

    Could Anyone Tell Me What They Think Of This?

    Blood and tears. I’ve done it now. I can’t see straight. Can I concentrate? Blood pouring in my face. (Is that rain pouring down my neck?) My view is askew. Music being played on the radio, it’s still ringing in my ears. I was standing and I was alone. Didn’t know...

    The Girl Who is Made for Love I met her at a bar that beauty among beauties, She smiled and sat beside me lighting up the room or just my world. She was so beautiful it brought tears the eyes, To see her was to love her She had nothing to despise. What is her name I wondered When...

    The Strange Heart

    Life Of No Consequence

    Opaqueness begins to fade & pieces of the proverbial puzzle fit places in subconcious reality. A soul is destroyed and replaced with a cynical enthusiasm of a realisation that love is a farce. A heart is crushed, a mind forced to see a truth, deliberate deceipt Enjoyed by the...

    Most of Mine Are Untitled So Here We Go

    Paranoia creeping in resting heavy on my brain. Senses enraged my heart is feeling burdened from distorted thoughts racing on my heavy mind . They say i'm delirious But what do they know ? Maybe its intuition guarding my soul .
