    Just Listen

    Alone in my roomI sit and I cryHearing the shoutsThat take my lifeYet slowly stillI'm fading awayLeaving this worldI've had all I can takeSo becoming nothingI say I give and I giveBut you wouldn't takeThe words of my broken smileWith no wings I fallQuickly to hellAway from...

    Equilibrium

    Rest if you must. Sleep if you can. Lay your pretty face Upon my hand. Steal those baby blues And close them tight. It’s time to surrender To yourself tonight. I don’t need you naked, In leather or lace. I want to see harmony And a smile on your face. On your soft, sweet...

    Writing Isn't Easy...

    To Nervous To Share Poetry

    What Lurkes In The Shadow Before Me?

    An Image Of Me

    No Beginning nor end, in the image of my Father from whence I came. The immeasurable vastness of my souls abyss you could not begin to fathom. So far past the depths of sorrow even the Angels weep for hope. The light at the other end is an illusion behind me. This is my Despair.

    Personal Versus Others

    I have always loved poetry since I first learned about it in school as a child. As I got older I would chicken scratch my own versions in a notebook. When I was first moved out on my own as an adult I came across all those poems. I copied them all down in a bigger notebook that I...
