    Under The Willow Tree

    We used to smile then And laughed for weeks Back when time had mattered We'd sit under our tree When the darkness came We'd call out the stars One-by-one they'd come Like lost children We'd keep them there Until one-by-one They found their way Just a memory to help Pass the time...

    Not a face Not a name Just a scent And a

    feeling He only comes by when I'm dreaming And when it's time for him to go Not a glimpse Not a sight Just a little kiss Goodnight

    Daylight Arc of My Mentality I arose this day

    with a beam, It blazed through the crevices of my mental process, Because of it I felt sharper, more keen, The memory capsules seemed less repressed, For my inner persona sparked the kindling of my minds dead underbrush, The warmth of the emotion ensued the cracking away of the...

    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 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.

    I Said "I Love You" If I were to just hold

    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...

    Because Of You

    Because of you. My life has been worthwhile. This wounded heart just flew Your sun returned my smile. An ocean sky turned blue All stars burn bright with fire Your sweet love so true Has sent angelic choir. I shake, I ache With lightning in my veins. I break, I take This wild...

    Help Yourself ~ You coveted my brain so you

    put your hands all over it. Picking through it with your fingers, choosing what you'd take for your own. You coveted my skin so you put your breath all over it. Hitting like an oven leaving it parched and dry. You coveted my heart so you put your mind all over it...

    Derailment of the 808 Express The time was 9

    PM, Yes the eve, latter part of the day, The locomotive heaved to the stress of its engine, Yet the track seemed to sway, The conductor, oh so uncertain, His sweat gave away his hidden fear, The rail would no longer hold the burden, The train’s demise was certainly near, The...

    The Last Sprint of Mercury Given the task,

    You Beautiful Sun

    To be beautiful is to be something rare And

    yet we are taught that everything is fair. To not be beautiful is to be unrealistic; To fail to see the something inside, artistic. Most shine dully, watching rusty reflections Unaware that curves in mirrors are deceptions. Searching for that flawless finish that won't last...

    Once upon my lifetime,

    a smile would cross my face. Now there is only sadness, my heart's an empty space. I've come to the realization, forever wasn't meant to be. Maybe it is for some people, but definitely not for me. I'm not completely blameless, I would never be that naive. She was the one who...

    whether it's for myself, or for you. It feels like that's the only thing left. Waiting on it so I can finally put this all to rest. I know it's not going to come easy, but I want to feel again, feel freely. It seems that is too much to ask for, When I believe I deserve much...

    Why Do I Love You
