    A cold world longing

    for a touch of spring. The snow covered grass, the ever chill breeze. The winter is tired, the birds must sing. The beauty of new life will kill the freeze. A young girl rests in the autumn leaves. The summer is gone, been taken from grace. The cold winter comes, her...

    I knew a boy who liked to draw,

    he drew pictures that nobody saw. He was most artistic late at night, in the bathroom out of sight. He kept a secret nobody knew, he didn't tell a soul and his gallery grew. His drawings were different, no paper or pen but needed a bandage now and again. He met this girl...

    Packing Up
