    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...

    The sun seems brighter today The ocean more

    blue The birds sing their beautiful songs And I think of you Days of talking and sharing Make me happy, make me smile I feel someone is caring And it feels good for awhile I feel I'm missing so much I'm not living my life Maybe I'm greedy and ask too much Should I take it all...

    In the blink of an eye I realize my motivation

    A link that lies beyond the world Its treasures are immersed in a part of the soul That's not of this world When the figures of Earth are Gods With futile force they slay As they're only in store as machines of pain.

    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...

    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...

    All of our 'children' are fluffy

    and sweet, except for one thing, they have four feet. Little tongues, so tiny and pink, makes us often wonder and think. They put such smiles upon our faces, running and playing in their own little oasis. They've never known such pain or fear, they are ours to...

    Flame (Don't Make Fun Please.)

    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...

    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 spoke in careful measure. We spoke more often recently. I thought you were a treasure. Now we talk most every day. The way it used to be. We're friends and so we correspond. Just like on old EP. There is no obligation. There is no way to measure. How knowing that you have...

    My Garden

    The Collective Eye

    Those stars on high, those sorrows stars.

    Not wishes to be granted, but tears of the forgotten. Wishes that didn't come true, ephemera to remind of ruin. Beautiful memories of pain. Sorrows shining stars.

    Bout Of Darkness

    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...

    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.

    Milady's Grave I no longer believe stone lays

    that love was won. Into darkness, far through space till I was lost, and out of place. Left or right, now up or down? Wherefore have I lost my crown? The cold embraces and constrains and I will slowly go insane. For did I loose my way back home? Meandering about the cosmos...
