    When our hands touch,

    And our fingers entwine, Your face, your lips so close to mine, Sweet chills run up And down my spine.

    xXBittersweetXx I awake just to see the sunset.

    To see the faint rainbow projected into the clouds. It takes my breath away beautifully. The peace and the tranquility rise within me, As does the feeling of loneliness and emptiness, And then the memories resurface it's only just me. I look down at my hand and see it is empty...

    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...

    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...
