    So many broken, disillusioned hearts roaming

    the wild fields of hope and yearn. Roaming some with purpose, some heedless. Seeking the elusive, prodding along, pushing, planning, scheming fueled by the distant grab of the singular moment of anything resembling happiness and peace. Putting their mask of chirpiness over the...

    A Scene From The Twilight Zone

    Today was a special day, my first day on a new job. Doing something that would be rewarding and please me. Lets call her Alice, my new boss. One of the "must-do" was never to smoke while I was there for any reason. No problem, I don't smoke that much to worry. Then it was do not...

    Until now we remain searching Until

    now we seek something Until now we breathe once again Until now we have hope Until now we climb the mountain of our fears Until now we like to see us in someone Until now we have the desire to be desired Until now we have the thirst to be understood

    "Loves true torture" My mind is never quiet,

    while my thoughts create a major riot. Pondering things unknown and never seen, always wishing for loves glittering gleem. For whom do I seek, and why to her can i not speak. Around the masses i must sneak, simply to kiss her upon the cheek. Hold her in my sweet embrace, to this...

    The road ahead.... She stood there.

    part II The pain and heartache we have inside .

    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...

    scars are the tangible reminders of our past,

    where we came from, the pain endured during that time. as we grow from our past, in turn the scars become less visible. scars are there when we have a bad day feeling like you cant go any further..we see the scars, touch our scars- they remind us that you can go further...

    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...

    Thirst is a craving, longing of a parching soul.

    The ultimate thirst is always keep thirsting, never quenching. It can be a blessing or a curse depending on one's goal. For me, I still have ambiguity about my goal. Both options are attractive in their own ways.

    A Little Mystery

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

    What will your voice sound like?

    What will your scent be like? What will your laughter do to the dew drops? What will your tears do to my white shirt? What will your smile do to my heartbeat? What will your hair do to the sunlight caught in it? What will your heartbeat narrate to my heart?
