    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...

    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...

    whine and complain, *****

    once again. never to change, keep things the same! believe the world is unfair! when truth, it doesn't care. open your mind to the truth of all life, the meaningless toil, long suffering strife. games of the mind, to help pass the time. when asked how you are, merely say "fine...

    The Cloudy Dark And Screaming

    lord of fools, king of lies,

    halls of time washed by tides. the hand of healing weilds the blade, with deft incisions, memories fade. screaming silence fills the ears, as the child drowns in tears. growing pains, and rods of steel, bend his will, from realms surreal. a crowded nothing, an empty mind...

    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...

    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...
