    Auschwitz camp liberation.

    Love never tasted so sweet

    as it did off your supple lips, like dew on a rose petal after the morning rain. You bring me closer to heaven with every kiss.

    By Me, For My Childhood Abuser....

    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...

    Will He Be My Reality?

    Lost without a smile, Tears that flowed with the wind, Each night and day, I close my eyes and dream of hope, The shattered emptiness crushed my soul. The cracks in my fragile heart slowly slipped away, I look to the sky as my wrists cry, I find hope in the darkness, The...

    Here, within confines of these walls,

    Near, as the smell of her clove cigarette lingers. Moonlight dances upon the window sills, Shadows swirling in unison with the howl of the winds. The footsteps of her heel, echo closer, As the halls reverberate the sound in anxiety. Here I sit in this dimly light room...

    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...

    From the beginning I always knew.

    You brighten my spirit with a smile that grew. You opened my heart and I sought through. One day I thought you didn't see. So I lost all hope inside of me. I wished and watched and it became a fact. Until I saw you running back. You looked weirdly at me. As if I...

    What little bit of what's left of me almost died today. Those things that mean so much in this world, I lost along the way. I met a man as cold as me. He found what i had lost. He turned around and gave it back.. He knew just what it cost. In a world so cold and hard...

    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...

    The Ultimate Gift

    My stepson arrived whilst we were away, Oblivious was I on the 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...

    And just like that they all flew away.

    Bout Of Darkness

    To Find Again, The Way.

    Out of the void, the life of every day. No fanfare, or clashing of symbols, but a soft “hello”. Why me? I whisper in case I am heard to doubt, Am I man enough to return the greeting? Into the light the sylph takes form, youth and beauty but unaware, she plays with me...

    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...
