    I have not a scar to display.

    Not one I can show. Not one that could be bothered, poked, or rubbed. Not one that says I have hope. Not one to hide and cover in plush, careful bandages that remind me of my mortality. Not one to wear like velvet purses and gold jewlery. I have no scar. Not a scratch that ran...

    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...

    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...

    A subtle fading of the mind,

    so slight, a gentle quiver sent cascading down my spine while I drift along the river. Lulling words invade the space connecting with my dreams; they send me falling and embrace me, guide me down the stream. Their swaying charm, they must insist to wrap me in their sweet...

    With every second I spent with her it felt

    divine, I felt blessed by just being within the light of her company, everytime I looked into her eyes I felt truly at peace, and when she smiled I could feel alive again. But slowly, I saw her smile start to fade, and I open my eyes, and tears flow down my face, and I can feel...

    On a rollercoaster she walks Way down,

    Sometimes I can barely write Usually on days

    I've never been good with metaphors but you

    Title: Tears For Humanity Bloody tears,

    barraging soulless, dead apparitions. Facades of shadows, and delusional lights. Endless oceans of anger, seas of sadness. Hidden repeats of endless tortures, suspicious, prying eyes. 100 years of nothingness, faded and passed into infinity. Groups of zombified apparitions...
