    Summer Leaves Again

    Colors withered . . . set to fly Spill from oaks of autumn skies. Reds and russets spoiled brown Now puddle on the forest ground. Yet rising high for all to see Their nakedness stood certainty The skeletons that once bore leaves A sacrifice amongst the tree's. Their bony fingers...

    I miss something I never had.

    If it ever returns, I'll never give it back.

    There is a beautiful moment in an empty

    room Where all is quiet and flowers bloom. The sound of a pin drop reflects on the moon And the sun dances around its tomb. There is a beautiful moment in an empty space Where there is no need for weapons or mace. Explore all over and come back to bace, Empty in essence, there...

    Laundromat Musings 2 It's quiet tonight here.

    Few people are Venturing out to do Their laundry in this cold. No pitter patter of baby feet on tile. No yelling mom at screaming kids. Where is the wise homeless man whom I conversate with so often? I'm all alone with my thoughts. My many Thoughts + Convergence = Creation...

    A Butterfly Called Love

    There will be days good

    and bad. There will be times happy or sad. There will be sunshine through the rain. There will be devine after the pain. Even when it all seems awful, crazy, and it just wreathes. Through it all remember to breathe.

    The path that we choose.

    Black heart Crimson lips Transparent

    I dream of places that are in between,

    Who Knows.

    Time Has Come

    The time has come to say goodbye, Leave all the memories we share behind. The love I had was pure and true, But you left me sad and blue. Looking towards a brand new day, Without my heart standing in the way.

    There lies beneath the surface,

    unseen to all but me... A darkness growing stronger, that will not let me be... That darkness, it's name, Depression, consumes down to the core... Pushes us to our limits, til we can't take it anymore.

    "THE LONER" The world is a betrayer.

    A mean and cold traitor. The victim tried to find a shoulder, but it brought her poison not a protector. She hid herself away from danger, and ran away to make sure it's over. She stopped by a river, and quenched the thirst inside her. She looked to see what's new around her and...
