    The dense fog clouding her mind,

    Pieces of clarity she needed to find.Would it be found in the words on this page?Or something that would never be gauged?Is life tracked along one muddled road,With confusion and pain often sowed?Or is it just that some are destined to see,That life is meant to be happy for you...

    Free Verse

    I celebrated Mother's Day with my wife by taking her to Victoria's Secret and forcing her to spend $250 on underwear. Now THAT'S poetry! I even got to pick out one of the pieces. Although, it's rather silly... because as soon as I see it on her, I'm only going to want to rip...

    I am sad so deeply kept imprisoned in the truth

    within the thought Words that can't be spoken is the burden of my lot. Rage just builds within my veins and tears that never dry. Invisible to the outside world that slowly I will die. But to see you sparks a longing to share all I have within Restrained within my heart...

    A silhouette shadows the mind,

    arms outstretched, beckoning in mock earnest Submerged in a vast sea of pale blue Ripples, ripples Edges burn with red embers, silently. Waves screaming, blades of ice assaulting it's prey. All at once morose. A silhouette awaits in the depths, looking on through blank eyes...

    I love poetry, and its been a while

    since ive read some but ive always like the "how do I love thee" style of mockery. Although its dark, it didnt quite fit in any of the dark poetry experiences nor did I want to make a catergory for dark mockery. But it almost fits here, as its a off the cuff poem unedited and...

    Off-The-Cuff Morning stillness in the cool

    He would own the world

    if he could. Destroying everyone and everything because they couldn't live up to his unattainable preconceived ideas. Then he would turn inward and destroy himself, because he couldn't bare to be alone in the misery he created.

    Annemarie- A Eulogy I can't describe her.

    Perfection would be too vague; flawlessness too petty. She has skin that smells of lavendar; or summer rain just as it touches the ground. Like pure life embodied, golden and smooth without a scar or inhibition; long-legged, funny as hell, her voice in my ear, her fingers on...
