    crown of gold for heart

    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...

    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...

    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...
