    The twilight cavern yawns The dim red glow

    impassive against a straining heart, A mind screams, but it's words are broken upon the back of clenched teeth. Humanity washes together into a grey paper mâché of desperation. Mindfulness shepherds thinkers to the fringes of awareness. Noise, beauty, light, revels, abandon...

    As a child you`re told love will concur all

    but then you grow up and realize love isn`t always enough. That sometimes, even when you wish with all you have that it could be different, fate has other things in mind.

    It all ended so quickly.

    So quickly that I never quite understood how it happened. We were young and trying to find our way. I will always hold you with a fondness even though you will never speak to me again. I'm not bitter for I can look back on our time together and smile. You came into my life at...

    Dark lonely times and sadness a part of

    everyone's story, time has given them to us all. Your eyes have no light in it there are damp for no reason and sometimes you can´t stop the tears from coming. Every day is a new day that you can bring the sunshine back to your life. Why do you waste your time over such...

    Inadaptation brings unsatisfaction.

    Adaptation brings conformism. We walk on a wire trying not to fall. But is it really possible not to fall? Can we be those skilled tightrope walkers? Or are we just free to choose on which side our fall will happen?

    Silence was the sound I feared most; Yet this

    tongue, tied to the swaying mast Of a wild and howling mind, an unseaworthy vessel At the best of times, in bitter storms, set sail To plunder and tear the treasure from the hands Of friends that sought to quench it. So if the silence ever falls...this tongue, With mindless...

    I have learned to simply refrain from

    expressing my fears and pain to her. Having them met with a silent disdain offers me no comfort or relief and no doubt adds to her discomfort by being asked for a level of intimacy that she is emotionally incapable of participating in. I use writing as my release, I write...

    Her tongue flicked across the temptationplaced

    so desirably before her.Luscious sensation flooded her sensesand created a ravenous thirst for more.She craved, needed. Hungered for more..To feed her, fill her up, satiate her fully.

    Silence is more eloquent

    than words We need silence to be able to touch souls. Silence is a great source of strength. Saying nothing sometimes says the most. Silence is the most powerful scream and sometimes it breaks your heart. Silence can be the answer. Miracles happen in silence. Silence makes the...

    It's just the two of us - I feel his presence.

    He stands just close enough that my body becomes aware, senses heighten. There is a shiver in the air. My body responds instinctively. I know what will happen if I allow my hand to drift towards him. I can already feel his body pressing into me, feel the cold wall...

    You know what your problem is?

    You're smart. Too smart. You over think, because your mind moves at a million miles a minute.. You're sad, because you're not fooled by the world like everyone else. You don't get along with most people, because they just don't look at things the way yo do. You think you're dumb...

    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...

    I chose what I need to know to satisfy myself.

    There is no requirement to know what I should know in order to know my truth. And, to agree to disagree, I should know what I don't need to know. So, yes, I should make sure I get educated about anything in order to have an opinion about it of my own first. At least, I should...

    Quietly lurking in the shadowed safety of the
