    The Winds Of Time

    The winds of time erode away The memories of our past, Leaving us with shadowy thoughts That disappear too fast. And so we cling with all our might And try to hold them near, All the things for which we care, And those that we hold dear. No matter how much we try to cling...

    A Complete Christmas I can still see the

    lights all aglow. I can still hear the laughter from long ago. I remember the question, "What is love"? And being told a completion of two people that comes from above. Then came a marriage way to soon, a pregnant bride and a jealous groom. A marriage of lies, guilt and no...

    It's been a while since I've written.

    . I gotta warm up again.. Untitled String lights, Streaming across the sky— Jittery shapes, That define curvatures beyond space. Bring me to the light— For I crave the knowledge Of curiosity. Tell me what it means, Tell me what lies beyond the lights—

    A shift in personalities,

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    Do not be afraid of life,the pain,the peril and the strife.Do not shrink with fear and dread from the things that lie ahead. Do not be afraid to try-for no goal can be too high.You may fail but don't complain,you can always try again. Do not be afraid to speak,to adventure and to...

    I like my bands in business suits,

    I watch them on TV. I'm working out most every day and watching what I eat. They tell me that it's good for me, but I don't even care. I know that it's crazy. I know that it's nowhere. But there is no denying that, it's hip to be square.

    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.

    Finally, a moment of quiet,

    everyone has their own limit Away from the negativity, when love turns to insanity But there's no one talking, when I find myself listening Not even a little brevity, or a chance at some clarity Alone with a worn spirit, now, it's too damned quiet

    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...
