    A Man Forgotten

    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.

    Write from Wrong Could you tell,

    the right from the wrong, The black from the white, Or were my words, Just lines from a song. What did you feel, was it heaven or hell, The light in in the dark, Did you know me, You never did tell. Who did you see, the hawk or the dove, Was I lost or alone, Did anyone hear...

    The Collective Eye

    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...

    "sad little boy" Winding up his toy soldier,

    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...

    Our body is a cage. A prison

    for our feelings. Our voice is silenced. Our cries ceased. When will we be free? How can this end? When did it even begin? We are slowly dying. From the inside out.

    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...

    Don't give in to the emptiness; There's

    so much more to life than this, Feeling of hopelessness... And despair, That seems to come from nowhere It's bright outside; Yet I can't hide, this feeling deep down inside, Can I make it through another night? Can everything just be alright?
