    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.

    Without You

    My heart aches as I awaken to find that you are not there beside me as you have always been. Where are you my dear beloved friend? Silver streams spring from my eyes as the shards of my broken heart cling to the strings of my soul, Bleeding...drip, by drip, by drip. Not...
