    Ol' Buddy Little girl watching tv Sliding

    A Thousand Miles Away

    I love you more with everyday A thousand reasons; a thousand ways A thousand words that I could say From a thousand miles away. I love you here; I love you now I need to love you near somehow. To close this gap between you and me This thousand mile eternity. I love your heart; I...

    I havent experienced you yet,

    But I want to, You look so heavenly, On the tv, And my head turns everytime you walk past me, I haven't experienced you yet, But I want to, You sound so sweet, Such a musical treat, Ears focus in everytime you float a head nodding beat, I haven't experienced you yet, But I...

    Forget The Past

    No mountain is too steep, to bring you out of the heap. Just lay your cares on the ground, and soon after you will be found. Inside your head used to be a war, the tears of the past is no more. Now you can rejoice about life, and put down that sharp knife. Love the person you are...

    The abyss yawns, exhaling halitonic tendrils of

    Lonely Tree

    Sometimes I wished I'd have toys, other years games. But I don't really remember when, I wished for a woman in my bed. Maybe when I was ringing groceries, into a laser eyed counter. Maybe the first time my car got stuck in a snowy patch in winter. But I remember the boughs of...

    I met myself on the street today, I was looking rather pale. My eyes were red, my hair unwashed, I didn't look too well. I tried to find the courage, To ask me what was wrong. I've known myself for quite some time now, We used to get along. He looked at me with anger, I've never...

    MYSTERY Funny how you think you know Everything

    The Damaged Tree

    .......To see a world in a grain of sand, to hold what falls in your hand. To know the future, but be surprised it takes place as long ago planned. Like an artist takes his tools out to paint. A long lonely walk he takes. Down the path through the holler. Up a hill, pass the...
