    I Met Myself On The Street Today

    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...

    Love's Sweet Cup

    My Lord I seek the peace of her love, It's completeness would me sustain, I long to drink from her loving sweet cup, I ask I not search in vain. Tell me Lord, shall I ever know, The touch of my love's caress, Shall I taste of the nectar, so filling ... Complete, That would flow...

    The Loudest Minds His silence echoed loudly
