    Hmmm

    Like little childen skipping off to school, hand in hand clasped firmly in place. This is how you make me feel. Like a breeze scented with Jasmine on a well moon lit night. This is how I feel you. A Solitary candle with a flame of no tremble This is how I see you,  A dove of...

    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.
