    With every second I spent with her it felt

    divine, I felt blessed by just being within the light of her company, everytime I looked into her eyes I felt truly at peace, and when she smiled I could feel alive again. But slowly, I saw her smile start to fade, and I open my eyes, and tears flow down my face, and I can feel...

    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...

    How sweet I roam'd from field to field,

    And tasted all the summer's pride, 'Till I the prince of love beheld, Who in the sunny beams did glide! He shew'd me lilies for my hair, And blushing roses for my brow; He led me through his gardens fair, Where all his golden pleasures grow...

    Lust The Deadly Sin

    Winter's Warning

    Waiting for a glimpse or sign Wondering if I've lost my mind. Wandering fields of golden grass Worrying heat that would not pass. While the seasons slowly turning Watching peats eternal burning. Wishing frost to hit the moors With waves of waters icy shores. Westerly the skies...

    Here

    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...

    I Remember Your Kiss

    I wrote this some time ago about someone from very long ago. I was going through my old poems and when I came to this one, I kept reading it over and over again. The person I wrote this about doesn't have any place in my life now and I rarely think of her so, the moment has...

    On a rollercoaster she walks Way down,

    near to hell The skin warms, burns, and falls To ashes she sees she belongs. She flies, carried by the wind Through trees, glass and cement The body crumbles and becomes millions The Earth gets what it owns. With big green leaves she grows Just leaves, flowers and root On...

    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...

    Title: Tears For Humanity Bloody tears,

    barraging soulless, dead apparitions. Facades of shadows, and delusional lights. Endless oceans of anger, seas of sadness. Hidden repeats of endless tortures, suspicious, prying eyes. 100 years of nothingness, faded and passed into infinity. Groups of zombified apparitions...

    The Cloudy Dark And Screaming

    It's not the failure

    that makes me cry. It's the people that gets affected by my failure. I want to return time to undo it but unfortunately I can't. All this long crying alone, still trying to hold up my tears. Sorry dad for being a failure.

    I have not a scar to display.

    Not one I can show. Not one that could be bothered, poked, or rubbed. Not one that says I have hope. Not one to hide and cover in plush, careful bandages that remind me of my mortality. Not one to wear like velvet purses and gold jewlery. I have no scar. Not a scratch that ran...

    A subtle fading of the mind,
