    I grew up in a world of ice,

    a bland place without any spice. Where everything was white and pure, where everything was truthful and sure. You came from a land of fire, a place of lust and desire. Where everything was chaotic and selfish, where everything was hectic and hellish. However you did catch my...

    I find myself saying things in conversation

    that could be mistaken as poetry. For example, I was talking to someone, and I randomly typed this out of nowhere. "Have you ever looked in the eyes of someone you truly care about and wonder if you'll ever amount to your responsibilities as their partner? To feel the cool wind...

    Awake At 300 Am

    Just trying to find my way like everyone else , With these blue eyes there's a story to tell. A war on my mind but still moving forward , Sailing into the sunset where the birds chew crate and murdels. Like a butterfly born after a storm I conquer these challenges, On a quest...

    Toes In The Sand Walking thru sand,

    Toes sinking down Sinking in deep, Leaving deep paw prints Of feet, bare, unshod feet Without sandals or shoes With grains on the soles As they walk thru the layers Of a stretch of damp sands Turned to powder like dust By the noon day sunlight With rays warming the flats Of...

    The Collective Eye

    We trek across an amorphous dream Vague shapes weave into obscurities Drawing me in Extending a hand behind a smiling guise. Spiral front and then back again In a barrel we spin in disarray Forehead sweats Reaching to wipe the tears from another eye. Mind eclipses everything...

    Anchor & Boat Nothing's helping anymore.

    Bout Of Darkness

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I've crossed the line to the unknown,

      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...

    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...

    All of our 'children' are fluffy

    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?
