    The abyss yawns, exhaling halitonic tendrils of

    ethereal memories Ensnared, they strangle my veins, puppeting me ever further below Blackened mist cloaks the mind, decomposing the essence of progression The corpses of the past reach, and take hold on weakened limbs Sunken eyes, that devour that which the future couldve held...

    You're one in a million,

    my most special one; Your radiant smile is as bright as the sun; You're smart and caring and have many great charms, And my heart really sings when you're wrapped in my arms. I'm happy you chose me from all of the rest, And I'm proud 'cause I know that I got the best. You're so...

    Mermaid

    I love the beauty of the sea Within its depth a part of me No better where I'd rather be The only place that I feel free. To breathe within its briny air To feel its breath blow back my hair At the blue horizon stare That is where you'll find me there. I hide within its shallow...

    A Cake For You, My Friend

    Here is a cake, I baked it myself; I filled it with love, And left it on a shelf. It's been sitting there, For only god knows how long; Just found it yesterday, And...Oh dear god that looks wrong. There's a graveyard of flies, Coating the top; My friend accidentally dropped it...

    It lingers in every waking thought And it

    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...

    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...

    I'm poetically harsh.

    my words can be as smooth as silk and as sharp as a knife. I can disarm someone just by conjuring up the correct words.

    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
