    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...

    Slumber, a peaceful sleep A way to get away

    from a day full of weep You drift away into your own mind Just to see stuff you never thought you could find It's not all peaceful and happiness though As evil thoughts and nightmares can begin to grow Haunting, unbreakable fear Caused by these nightmares you can't steer...

    the scars just fade, like my memories of you,

    you are just a memory and I'm forgetting you, Im standing here on this edge trying to jump, but I can't and probably won't, I'm just sad that I will forget about my love for you, life has separated us and now I must pretend to just be happy, *whispers* with out you

    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...

    Feeling a shiver down her spine,

    Licking her lips and tasting the wine, Closing her eyes tightly as her mouth becomes a smile, Tossing her alarm on the floor, continuing her dream for a while.

    Pixie Dust I was in love with a boy Who never

    Funny how this generation shows most criticism

    Towards the man who holds a plan to rise above his egoism. They say to be a player just to simply catch a feel. I say that pleasure will never measure to actually having something real.

    the mind alters the pendulum swings.
