    What if I just run the tap?

    / Flick a razor and paint with red/ Illustrate injustices/ And everything unsaid/ Apologies won't undo/ The deeds that drove me to the edge/ Their echoes bounce like badly written cheques/ while I whisper Adieu

    TRIANGLES - 1 man, 2 loves Three points

    How to love again when past wounds persist,

    Disappearing into the back of the crowd.

    My lips are sealed, But my thoughts are loud. Replays of memories going on inside my head, As I write out my sadness through this led. I'm happier nowadays, But I don't forget the nights where I didn't even know if I'd get fed.. Praying to this sky, hoping someone's listening...

    The Flower Show

    The dawn cues the show to start As my window curtains part. . To look upon the cast a story Amidst the purple morning glory. Seen below the morning star Sits rows and rows of lavendar. . A yellow dot with white clouds hazy A color script just for the daisy. A worm that pays the...

    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...
