    The Gift ladies and gentlemen,

    sit right down, and patience, hear me out; there is no bold prescription here for dealing with your doubt. I`ll leave that to the men in black, the promises they make. I cannot do that kind of thing; there`s too much here at stake. but if you will bear with me now there`s...

    Street and Sky clouds sailing fast past the

    A surremptitios lagniappe

    which left me in a halcyon frenzy. Lifting the curse of inure relentless ineffable lassitude. Our lives inued and efflourescent. Conflating our moieties of conceptions is an exclusive sanctum. My Haiku :)

    You Were The One, You Are The One

    You were the one who made me happy.But now you're the one who left me back in deep mourning. You were the one who has given me strength.But now you're the one who has taken the joy of life of me. You were the one I never wanted to lose.But now you're the one who has left me...

    I didn't know you wanted me; I didn't know you

    cared; but when you said I haunted you, that's when I was scared. I hadn't thought of you that way. I thought we were just friends. your words were welcome, I must say, but that's how friendship ends. now I want you for my wife; I'm sure that scares you too, but now I want you...

    Teen Love once more I'm talking 'bout myself.

    why not, who else is here? and thinking back to my mid-teens and the lovely Guinivere. it seems a little silly now; it was her name, I swear. romantic as I was those days, she had my heart right there. our love became a frightening thing and scared us both away. we were too...

    Love..

    My new poem...Love is when you can't tell him what is in your mind.Love is when you miss him and cry.Love is when you smile even it hurts a lot inside.Love is when you learn to forgive.Love is when his wish means more to you than yours.Love is when you cherish the moments with...

    She was depressed alone,

    For My Wonderful Sisterheart Maryjanine

    Did I ever tell you, how glad I am that you are in my life? I'm telling you now, so you know how important you are to me. How much love I feel for you deep in my heart. So often be accepted as self-evident the beautiful and important things in life. And I realize that you are one...

    Possession

    At night, you're lying in your bed alone and try to sleep, but you can not, because too many thoughts are in your head. Things that eat away you inside. Fears that do not let you go. You try to fight against them, but it seems to be a futile, hopeless struggle. You see no light...
