    A Thousand Miles Away

    I love you more with everyday A thousand reasons; a thousand ways A thousand words that I could say From a thousand miles away. I love you here; I love you now I need to love you near somehow. To close this gap between you and me This thousand mile eternity. I love your heart; I...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Here alone in this empty room with one thought

    and that thought is you. A little scared and a little shook a little nervous when I see you look at me.. when I see you look at me. Oh girl will you always stay? I feel so close but you're far away this is a true love no fifty shades of gray so girl will you stay?

    The mirror exposes the ugliness I chose to keep

    my eyes closed to The people around me are blind aren't you supposed to , run from the darkness but they stare me in the face . Mistaking good deeds for me being a good guy only proves their ignorance to the oxymoron standing before them.
