    CHANGE Unforetold the path I walk,

    Chambers still void to me, The script I write is yet more talk, Blinding my walk with thee. Surprise it me… to know yet thus, The plans laid years before, My carefully crafted beam and truss, Behind an old locked door. Alas, the hinges rusty still, Began to creak once more...

    she smiles every day to hide the sorrow

    In Misery We Roam. In musty abandoned halls

    we roam Reliving the hell we brought on ourselves Chained by past deeds too awful to tell Trapped here and denied eternal peace We roam these halls most days alone With eyes that stare but cannot see the light And wail out our misery in silence We can no longer touch the...

    Today I am a glowing angel with bloody hands.

    today I'm an angry hermit forced into the midst of a crowd. My jaw is tight. My face burns. My ears ring. Today I can breathe fire and burn villages. I hope tomorrow is better.

    As I Weep There's a ghost,

    a ghost who cries Because all it hears is lies There's a path, an injured path Because there is no turning back There's a girl, a girl who sleeps Oh for eternity And there's a boy, a broken boy who doesn't want to be destroyed Four souls converge into one But all it seems to do...

    "Stop living in fantasy,

    keep up with life!" Why would I want to listen? In my worlds, I am a queen! Why would I want to be a slave? A slave to life, to work, to school. Or, a queen over reality, over time, over fate. Now, which would you choose?

    Dust dancing on rays of morning light; she

    and I, and coffee flavored love. The silence between the words was heavy with an undertone of doubt. Something she was hesitant to say was fighting it's way from mind to mouth. lovely lips parted to a broken sound that became words- that became a eulogy "I do not want a man who...

    If you saw the little girl Would you be scared?

    Thank you for the golden bridge upon

    Laying quietly at night viewing the stars.
