    From where does death follow

    and prey, tiptoeing around on pointed feet. No I do not describe decay, not at all in the -usual- way. I intend to describe a loss of self, when old egos do burn in effigy And I cannot describe the pain, which comes along with this terrible end But lo' behold! Rejoice and...

    Touch Me

    One look from you, I bare my soul Rarer than you will ever know Forbidden love, friend or foe I cannot hide, what I cannot show Exquisite torture, I hesitate Led by longing, lust, or fate But through every pulse, you resonate Made all the sweeter for the wait Touch me now with...

    My quill on paper is like blade to skin

    but forbid the transparency of one that is paper thin. My heart is heavy with envy and droopy with guilt but even though my heart of precious metals is formed it can still be smelt. The furnace in which is your love and your compassion is one thing that no person has given me.

    'a life of half measures' When you were an

    inspiration of excess, I sat on the side lines and wished. But there was no way I was going to risk rejection You had it all, great looks, personality, love for life, Style The best I could do was hope, Hope that you would notice, Take charge. That was not your method either...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Looking back Looking back.

    ... Upon looking at my life I realize my life did not begin until I met you. Looking back... Through the deep, dark shadows of my past, I have seen that no one has loved and cared about me the way you have. Looking back... I have come to the conclusion that I have made some...

    Reposting this poem from my old deleted account.

    It has no meaning anymore but it once did. I don't think it is good to poetry standards ( my other poem tells how I feel about that )However I think the poem is clever given the situation that inspired it.

    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...

    Take a look to the past

    and there will be a mirror. See thine self move on but if you see nothing smash the glass with your own fists it is the only way to provide stabilization in this realm of transparency

    Tormented Soul! Childhood.

    .. what childhood?! Someone stole my innocence! Ripped away from me... like a piece of fabric torn only in time. To survive the pain this child must walk thru the tear and become an adult way to early. Mentors?!? They are too far, few and in between, too busy in their own worlds...

    An ocean of memories of you to whom of

    The Laugh, Loud, obnoxious,

    sometimes annoying, But! Contagious, none the less. It's like a disease, Only everyone wants this one. Laughter, truly is the best medicine. You can't be mad, or sad when you're laughing. It's almost impossible. Almost. So again, the laugh.

    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...
