    I'M Glad I'M Not Flat Chested..

    ISLAND OF ISOLATION Door slams shut.

    Heels clicking, Echoing down the driveway. Gears grind. Tires squeal, Rubber burns. Mother is gone. Father is alone. And so am I. Train rolls on by. Whistle blows. Hear a child, That doesn't cry. Anymore. Pain burns so deep. Can't find it. No more. Silently weep...

    Another poem from my youth.

    DENIAL OF LOVE Cupid's bow twangs, Broken arrows, On my heart. Lovely little sparrows, Ripped apart. I am dying. But have no fear. I am crying. But shed not a tear. I am trying. But it's not too clear. I am lying. When I look in the mirror. Death rides my soul. Look into...

    Strange dream again and the day obscene.

    The wicked scorn of sun and I am ready for it to be done. On to the crisp autumn air where she is waiting at the faire. A girl with a glow and we just know. Her name is Never and I am Fantasy. I try to find her but I sever as night is dwindling. The sparse mingling never...

    I was just a child, and you a man, now I'm an adult, look at me if you can. I'm no longer the child, You sought to destroy, the innocent life, you claimed as your toy. now let's see you hurt me, let's see you try, but you can't hurt me, as I'm stronger inside. You stole the child...

    I live in a car that's been burned out for years. The guy that was driving, His bones are still here. I was with him when it happened. We were both drinking beer. We went off a cliff. The fire burned up our tears. I am waiting for judgment. My soul shakes with fear. This life...

    My closest companion. Love was like the dawn, Sweeping over the horizon. But I hid from it's light, Deep within the dungeon of myself. Strength in my loneliness, Was what I counted as my wealth. I built the walls, To keep the hurt outside. I knew the truth, But when I spoke I...

    as he walked away, For there was nothing left to say. The words they once exchanged, Were simply rearranged. She began not caring anymore, As she danced alone on the floor. The music that filled her head, Erased the lies that were said. As she danced around the room, The scent...
