    The Ultimate Gift

    My stepson arrived whilst we were away, Oblivious was I on that wonderful day. My husband, he knew, his child would be born, Between son and his wife, emotions were torn. I never found out until much later on, For a whole ten months, the prize I had won. The confession it came...

    Ghost

    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...

    The Stars They Burn Out.

    A man cannot be a king when he has no castle. A bird it cannot fly without its wings. A dog cannot be trained without a master. A song cannot be sung when there's no one there  to sing. The world is always flat in our dreams and nothing is ever what it seams. In the end , the...

    Change me: Cut, bleed,

    eyes they start to gleam. Try, fail, there's no stopping this Hell. Up, down. Looking but nowhere to be found. Smile, cry, they're both fake. Fine, okay, excuses to get away. Dead, alive, the difference between what you are, & what you want to be. All, have different meaning. It...

    Perfection Why are we

    so obsessed with perfection? We're all gonna be old in the end. Even if we don't die old, we'll still look tired & used. Everyone gets abused, in their own way. Yet some choose to stay. I find myself faced with this question everyday. Should I stay? If I choose to leave this...

    What Would You Do: I'm finding it harder to

    hide in myself. Things I wouldn't say keep escaping my mouth. I'm afraid I'll slip & say it out loud. I'm not even sure if i have the strength to write it down. Scared of what they'll say, how they'll look at me. Should I tell someone else? Could they handle all that bounces...

    An ocean of memories of you to whom of

    which i have no recollection. Who are you and who am i? Blind like a child in a dark room crawling towards a life unknown Tenderness more scarce than Lust In cities of Steel ,devoid of trust we travel between now ,before and then until it is time to repeat again.

    Bout Of Darkness

    Acrimonious and fragmented is this day Mislaid and secluded is thy love From the pitcher of sorrow I drink the liquid of my slow death. It pours through my soul, drenches my inner most anatomy and quiches my thirst for things unlawful and just. It puts out the flames that dance...

    Words. Words, what are they?

    Are they sweet like a kiss from a baby? Are they like swords used to slay? Are they honest like the change from rain to shine? Cold like a winters sky? Maybe, they are true, or just. But they could also be full of bad stuff. Words, what are they?

    Whirlwind:- The storm imploded upon itself,

    and at the centre the power of its wealth. The force of it all is enough to kill, but from somewhere the boy found his will. I was protected by a shaft of light, that called my name and restored my sight. Now I seek storms and look for the lost, I show them the light whatever...

    The Collective Eye

    I did nothing wrong, To hurt you with my tongue,

    For the words I have sung, Surely they shouldn't have stung. To be honest, I loved you till the end, But now we are just friends. It ended so abruptly when your soft lips departed and spoke, And in the end I couldn't manage a croak, My life is bad but it was livable with you...

      She locks herself away in her room,

    So she can finally let her real self roam. Struggling to keep clean, Her demons, they scream. "Cut me, cut me" She can't seem to keep away from things, That are sharp. She struggles, she screams but she promises to keep clean. She feels so engulfed in the dark. "Look in the...

    We All Have Our Demons

    We can't forget our past no matter how hard we try. But the tears we cry ,can wash away the demons inside. It doesn't take much for our past to return. A sound or a song, and those memories burn. I wish we could forget the thoughts that haunt our soul. So we could look forward...

    Sensual Thoughts I watched you walk through

    the bedroom door. Your body called to me. The candles lit in the darkness glowed, And showed your path to see. I loved to watch as you walked to me, As the shadow flickered on the wall. You gave a show as you undressed, And I would watch it all. The trail of clothes you left...
