    Lord Of Darkness

    A soft echo of a long forgotten voice whispers to me Down through the ages From the old days The ancient ways Whispers.. Of long dusty days in the warm sun Where long shadows hang on worn mellow cobblestones Twisted paths leading into fragrant lavender fields That sway in...

    Maybe the world is crazy,

    or maybe it's just me. People's words can either bring me up or break me down. Most of the time they've broken me down. They say they don't mean it, but what's the point of saying it then? Do you just say them because you don't care? Because you don't realize that your words are...

    I wish to remain unwashed,

    to always inhale the traces of your sillage, senses chasing it across my incalescent flesh.. drawing, flushing everything dark and wild inside of me, out into your direction..

    It starts as a dull ache

    and son spreads through your chest like a raging inferno of sorrow and grief. The pain intensifies until your breath stops for a second, caught between a choke and a sob that is desperate to make itself heard. Your whole body shudders with the effort to keep yourself together...

    A Little Mystery

    Too much of something/the same thing causes it to lose it's appeal. It just starts to become over exposure. We've lost much of that delightful and powerfully erotic sensuousness and sexuality in both immediate gratification and blatant 'in your face' behavior, without the...

    Sometimes the days just taste of winter

    or the panic of the dull afternoon where another day slides to grey as you watch helplessly. The uber coloured promises of the days you dared dream happiness seem like garish assaults on a migrained mind that reels, and falls and spins. And people's everyday lives lived around...

    Angry tears burn in a way

    that anguished tears don't. Leaving acidic track marks as a sign you have been truly broken. Fury emanates from every fiber of the being...eating you up, scorching and destroying until the humanity you had is consumed with hateful rage. You try to suppress it; align the outer...

    The tears begin to roll,

    But the feelings are no longer there. They know when it's time to come, But my hurting soul can't muster, Any of the feeling, That it used to have. Only seeing beauty and hate, So different but yet the same in this world. Over time, All the feelings have disappeared. So...

    I cannot give everyone what they want.

    Many will read my thoughts Some will share my smiles. Several will enjoy true laughter. A few will have my honest friendship. When that offered friendship still isn't enough...then I am at a loss.

    Pin me. I do not care to what surface you

    choose. The wall so cold against my back, the bed so soft, the floor so firm, the couch so comfortable. I want to feel your strength. Are you stronger than me? You will have to be or you will never have control of me.

    I overheard familiarity.

    His voice has carried happy giggly notes of a happy music he sang to her. I didn't mean to listen. I didn't mean to look at him. I turned my whole life spent with him away, in one ashamed look. It took me two seconds to realize, he was my ex and his new girlfriend, I glanced...

    My Forgotten Passion

    I had lost it somewhere, between here and there.  The words no longer came like they once had. Maybe I was lacking the passions I once had. I missed writing and the passion it brought out in me for my love, my life, and my existence. My whole existence numbed and became merely a...

    How did he win her? It wasn't by running the
