    Self contemplating suicide I'm not

    that fragile little boy anymore I grew up to become a man, but I look in the mirror and see the reflection of my former self and tell myself I need to work up a new game plan. The old one didn't work so well and this rope around my neck feels so comfortable on skin I won't...

    The House On The Hill

    The house stood still Up on the hill For many years and more Through all the rain The clouds contain It weathered every storm And even when the sun Fell beyond the mountains And days had turned to night The house stood still Upon the hill The only house in sight When all the...

    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.

    Chance

    Chance In sea of loneliness, your eyes draw me in close My nightmares disappear, as my attraction grows More and more I want to see you and listen to your soul Your kiss is like a key in my life, Can you make me whole? I reach out to hold you and I will never loosen my grip...

    I cling to the pieces Of memories,

    once so sweet... But who knows what'll come In this future of ours? This thin border of sanity Is lined in black lace, Your eyes and fingertips Dare me to cross it. I reach for the one thing Still solid and bearable... A feeling I once yearned for; A pleasure so sweet. I reach...

    Within the confines of my mind,

    Souls Together

    Drenched in a dreadful ocean of heartache.

    Soul steady sleeping, Mind wide awake. Why'd God leave me here to rot in pain that chokes the life out of me? Lord knows, I want His eyes, just so i could see. See how this life could really turn out to be. My world hasn't alwayd been full of glitter & gold. More like dark...

    As I pass you in the hallway I purposefully

    brush my arms up against yours. I'm a fiend. Your touch satisfies my need for only a moment. I'm always searching for more. In bed, although asleep, my legs intertwine yours. And if you dear move away my hand will find your back. Wrestling in the backyard is breath taking...

    Summer Leaves Again

    Touched By Beauty

    Have you felt that softest touch A silent sky That says so much. Candy floss pink streaked. A kaleidoscope that leaked. A child heaven as sunshine slept. Some wild spectrum As moonlight crept. Touched By the canyon of the sky  Between the stars And you and I. Naked as the moon...

    The sun awakened my skin today,

    It stretched across my flesh It sank into my depths, And touched my heart setting it afire, The sun caressed my face and slipped it's warmth around my waist, I did not struggle, I invited the heat within, So it reached and reached until finally, It found...me.
