    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...

    Mystery there is a sun

    that does not shine on you, a moon that races cloud to cloud and hides, as into cloud my mystic spirit rides, and seeks the starlight in the deepest blue. my heart is risen with the sun each morn, and sets again as every day is done. it craves the moment when we all are one, but...

    Who Cares? I like to keep it fast

    and loose, admit I make the big mistakes, forget the real life for a while; that's all it ever really takes. no one is perfect at this game; I never try for perfection. the mess I make glares out at me and cannot escape detection. "who cares?" you ask. I guess just me. who...

    That Is For All Those Who Feel Lonely :´(

    Loneliness Another day without love, a new day alone. Without any hope and goals, another day without sunshine. With tears of despair, which run from your eyes, once so happy they have now a different meaning, The way back into life is so long and so far. Wishing and...

    Dreams let's start here,

    on a crisp January day, so clean and clear, and filled with snow; and we'll decide where we might go on a day that doesn't burn the eyes. we'll need sunglasses for our enterprise. the snow falls gently round us, like a cloak, assumes the weight of smoke on our aging shoulders...

    Possession

    The heat still lingers beside me a whisper of danger. Your deceit ran deeper than the wrinkle free face with which you smiled at me. Soft white sheets spread upon a king size bed, perfectly placed, an obsession. Hungry eyes that devour the weak, it was in your baby blues that I...

    WHEN THE DOOR OPENS: a draft

    death is a door opening. it is not an ending nor a fresh beginning. it is perhaps an unexpected turn of the road, an entry into the next stage of the same life. the rising of the soul is merely the self leaving. all the rest stays, and continues to play its part, as the life...

    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...

    And So I Must As my Logic holds still in

    muffled protest, My Heart stands holding my Will with no mercy. I know these hands- They are strong and unrelenting. Crazed and ever wanting. It cares not for past wrongs done to it nor pain inflicted onto it. It loves only, Holds only, And, ever so hard it is to not submit To...

    up! you can't keep going the way you are, and if you try, you're going to drop, your pickled brain stuffed in a jar. I'm not trying to pick on you, but you're not on the receiving end. I don't know how to get it through; I've pretty much had it, and I can't bend. this is not...

    Honesty I`m tripping over honesty,

    not an unfamiliar state. it doesn`t happen all that much, not these days, at any rate. I am a distant father now; my boys are now in Ottawa. the drive is more than I can take. the loss is recently so raw. I wish it could be other wise, with the many things I feel; I need them to...

    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...
