    When you look into my eyes,

    you see this thing you know as "I", but behind this "I" hides an ocean, infinite, vast, divine as the sky but far deeper. And when you see this tiny drop of "I", know that separation lies through desparation, but why? I am not the drop, you see, lost among the fearsome sea. The...

    so many ways. The answer isn't simple Even though I've tried. It's a question I've asked myself time after time. I've tried to explain, I try to keep my answers plain. What I need is support and love at this time. Not judgmental pushing And warnings to get out in time. A...

    Nothing Is As It Seems.

    Have you ever gazed up into the infinity of space on a clear night, in awe of the absolute stillness and inconceivable vastness of it? Have you truly listened to the sound of a black bird on a summer evening? If not you will see but not see, you will hear but not hear. Can you...

    Belly-full. Love. You refuse me.

    Flashbacks My yesteryears haunt my visions,

    Only A Memory

    Life isn't as it seems. You won't remember me. When I take my leave. I'm barely, a memory. What do you see, when you look at me? Can't you tell that I am weak? When this world knocks me down. For in this world. I am only, a memory. It never is as it seems. You can only lie to me...

    I want to write, But I'm not

    that bright, Words are a fight. I know what I want To say Or do I? I know what I feel But is it real? Or is it just What meets the eye? I want to say, I want to lay, It out there. But when I do, It's not just you, It's the entire internet, And that's a scare.
