    Taunted by your lone thoughts.

    ..confused within my own self...disturbed dark soul of mine...cry out for help from within... My burning ashes crave for life...the death that was never meant to be mine, but yours...The death that I embraced for no one...A window to the unknown world of miseries...wretching...

    Off-The-Cuff Morning stillness in the cool

    darkness The quite house The darkness before dawn Dark roasted fresh brewed black coffee inky as the sky Fading of distant stars as they ebb to Sol Volumes written about the promises of new days Each fails to embrace the beauty in early morning hours

    The Confliction Of A Tortured Soul

    I fall to my knees and beg for forgiveness, I look to the heavens and see a light. I fall from grace and revel in sin, I walk away and become the night.

    Reading Two kindred things I've noticed in the

    sacred place I love, when we say, "Hey, I want to go to the Book Store". Coffee, dripping with caffeine and the smell of books, glue, "Enchanting", we breathe it in. Stacks, stacks, musty and new, dusty and beautiful in their little covers, I touch the spines and murmur...

    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...

    A silhouette shadows the mind,

    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.

    Title: The voice in the wilderness The echoes

    of my voice bounce and vociferate but never absorb. They die out before they are truly heard. No thing, nothing is listening. Do you hear what I hear - or feel? I didn't think so.
