    Real Pain

    You are lost In faded colours of Summer's smile Memory. The world we had now locks me out I tear and strain in desperate style You drift away, I scream and shout My blood dries in the vein True love just means real pain. You are lost Until moonbeams send you from the skies To cut...

    She finds solace in her silence Her mind is

    flooded with mistakes Trying to run Trying to escape The crippling fear of the unknown Keeps her from moving on A loveless life With no real hope The calm before the storm. She finds solace in her sadness As the day turns into night Her demons caress her tender heart She’s...

    Deeper Stranger.

    Deeper Stranger. My heart is as deep as the Hudson River. Its fresh with unpredictable currents. Once a murky barren zone is now the object of a mid summers swim. My mind is a twisted Christmas peppermint stick. Its stale and forgotten in your grandmothers garage, along with...

    Ehh.. Poems are such a vaguely exact medium of

    emotion At first, all was exploding and dying, Imploding as it starts. Then the corrosive winds fell upon blankness. In rocks and valleys, the deadening stillness vanished, as the world became hectic, and chaotic. Gusts burst into roars, and fury turned to rage. The...

    I have this dream where September is crying on

    the floor as I show it photo albums of all the times I can't forget how I was almost happy, and you're tied up against the bedpost as I'm pleading with you to prove you love me in your eyes alone, make love to me through your gaze or you're a liar, and the car doesn't crash in...

    Sometimes I can't stand the stupidity.

    Those peeps don't get my empathy. Is it so hard to get yourself some education? Learn how to respect those without relation. I call it laziness, the craziness you spew, such ignorance. One can't be so arrogant to think they know everything. Someone once said a wise man knows...

    Threads Of Ourselves

    The feelings we share I ride like a wave, The ups the downs the direction they make, On a magic carpet that we made, From threads of ourselves,and the pattern we laid the vessel counts as much as the map, The carriage awaits for us to step up, I admit Its scary as it might...

    In the end, It came down to you,

    With the flicker of a light.

    Two left dead. Like a terror in the night. A bullet by your bed. Help he says. I'm in dire need of changing. And with every other blink. He can see that she's worth saving. Once a lock upon heart. Now a shackle in the dust. We've been left with all the answers...

    and if we only have tonight,

    would you hold me tight? would you kiss me softly? and tell me you love me? if we only have right now, will you slowly take away my pain? would you show me all I needed to see? would you make me happy?

    FOR OLD MEN AT THE CHESS TABLE They banned me

    from the park I fed pigeons at every morning. I was too emotionally attached to things that leave with the seasons. They say my rain clouds over-watered the plants and killed them. More time in bed, I thought, but I'm always looking for a reason. So I gave my bread money to the...

    TRUTH Most lives are full of struggles As we

    begin each day; We can only hope the path we found Is the one where we should stay. You can’t always judge the path, Simply by its looks. And you can never gain wisdom, Just by what you read in books. So be grateful for experience, Whether good or bad. For we can learn...

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.

    When you look into someone's eyes, you can see everything. You see emotions and their journey. Their heartbreaks and their fears. Their memories, maybe even eternity. Now, look into my eyes, And tell me what you see. Can you see the darkness, That lives deep within me? Can you...
