    Deep in the vivid silhouette of the nightImages

    form like dreams I hold so tightWhisk from the unknown horizonShadows dancing in forlornDreams are made of moons and starsReality has many unpredictable scarsClosing the eyes to break freeWhich should I choose thee?The beautiful dream or stark reality?

    Memory...

    I will remember your small room
 the feel of you
 the light in the window
 your records
 your books
 our morning coffee
 our noons our nights
 our bodies spilled together
 sleeping
 the tiny flowing currents
 immediate and forever
 your leg my leg

    --the Dream-- Silver blue gift Drowns far down

    stream Just out of reach... My fingertips brush The tiny gold pebbles That pour from the cavity in my chest; And I'm falling, falling D O W N....... "Kiss me" Says the pretty eyeless girl Who lays upon my bed.

    MAYBE Come into my shadows and linger on.

    Whisper a lie and maybe I'll fall. It's okay. I know I've loved I'll smell the past and hold on. Cross your fingers and maybe I'll crawl. It's all right. I know I've loved Funny, isn't it ? What I miss is Pain.

    Sharing We both shared the pain,

    the ways to make us sane. We shared the game, the rules. We shared the dark, the light. We both agreed the same. We both trusted the way. The sharing was natural and thats how it should stay.

    Short Poem- Friend Frustartation

    Excuses, excuses you have many. I have little time but you have plenty. You ignore me but you won't admit it. Instead you spout nonsense to say you didn't. But I know you, no matter how much you hide. I know the person that I love is inside. Maybe she's on vacation, who ever...

    Pain & hurt, harsh words Suffocating in your

    chest. The sudden realisation that you only try your best. Thinking if the times when you would die to keep this love, But now this love is the reason why you think you've had enough. Overdosing on bliss seemed to keep me elevated & high, I never thought it would run out now...

    “We wear the mask that grins

    and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,–
This debt we pay to human guile;
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
And mouth with myriad subtleties.
Why should the world be over–wise,
In counting all our tears and sighs?
Nay, let them only see us...

    Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein

    Forgive me for the days when I am unsure whether I am dreaming or awake, when I use sharp words to poke holes in this love we have made, just to see if it can survive the quake. ~Della Hicks-Wilson

    Left brain, Think Straight.

    " A New Beginning of Memories" When I awake

    and the day begins for a normal human like me: I sit up and watch the sunlight bury my past. Somehow, everything seems clearer and everybody's coming out of their shells. All of the memories and all of these words open up the meaning of my world. I don't want anything to ever...

    She smiles so bright,

    yet she’s fighting demons every day, yet once she gets home she breaks. Her heart is shattered & she's all alone. Cheated on & lied to constantly & now no text or missed calls on her phone. She's hurting badly yet trying to hold it together. Finally she silently says to...

    Nothingness The emptiness feeling consumes me,

    Well here i am, once again. Always the same, always insane. I live in the shadow, I live in a dream. They say im crazy, they say its a faze. Life is just one big maze. Love is a cure, I mean I guess. Im Living in the shadow of The Rest.

    I cried one tear today,

    even though it felt like more. The ocean of tears within me, only one drop came down my cheek. I wiped it away quickly, in fear that the ocean might leak. With eyelids closed, I pushed back the waves that burn my eyes with pain, one tear was enough for today.
