    When I think of you I feel a chance

    for me A chance to live a normal life When I drink it makes it come out So I can face it Instead of face this empty space infront of me I don't know what's in me Or why it's there But it's stuck to me Forever there Like a uncureable disease I've been stuck in the...

    Mosaic

    Broken pieces, shattered all around We heard the sound, when it all hit the ground Torn pages, in the book of my life In the pain and strife, seems like a losing fight Empty spaces, covered in clutter My heart skips paces, and my words come in stutters I see the places, where the...

for I am the ocean

    
and you have only seen a drop of water
you can spend your life 
putting the puzzle pieces together
but it will take far to long to see the big picture

you will loose interest 
and begin a new puzzle
one with less...

    Anger surged through my veins… My mind alive

    with lava infused within My head in limbo, tip-tapping what to do. The clock measuring how angry I could be As if anger had a limit to harm thee So when anger struck two, An evil force pushed through A refreshing hint came to halt But not yet sweet but bitter at fault And so...

    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.
