    A Man Forgotten

    Soldiers marched all night inside the houses families cried the townspeople were affright people fled having nowhere to hide One man spoke to the people as they fled Crying:"be strong, fight, never give in" But the people looked at him nothing said He realized his fate he knew...

    It's just so hard to explain Why I am this way.

    I don't go to school often because it's really scary When the rape experience remains in your head In the stillness of my mind In the darkness of my thoughts And in every space of emptiness. It's hard to hear loud noises or shouts because it screams danger And when someone...

    Be a lover of the light,

    that is my decree. Though walking through darkness we all tend to be. Shadows surrounding, The voices keep howling As an owl lies perched in a tree. Hooting his wisdom aloud from a'far, Breaking the vale and mending the scar. Sudden eruptions of real joy and glee, You look at...

    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...

    Wrote this when my dad was yelling at me: I

    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...

    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...

    Ghost

    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.

    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...

    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...
