    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...

    Stalking

    It never rightfully belonged to me But I wanted it nonetheless, So when you were distracted and couldn’t see I took it, I confess. I thought that it might take a while For you to realize your mistake, And though I felt guilty in my guile I held it close, for love’s sake...

    You're the one who saved me,

    the one who stood out from the crowd and grabbed my hand before I fell, You're the hero. But its only logical to say that the superhero always falls in love with the person they saved, But that must be a fantasy, because your arms aren't wrapped around me, and you're not my...

    Inspiration

    I sat alone And tried to think, Of words so grand, To put in ink. The words came slow, And uninspired. No cutesy rhymes, No expressed desire. No lover’s song, No wrong to right., No erotic rhyme, To fill the night. Inspiration, I could not find...

    Pentimento of the soul A woman's beauty appears

    Once the outer paint has faded Through the wearing of the years and though both art exist Within her fragile frame The putti and the pouting skin The angel knows who she truly is within For without that ego of masquerade She is left to see her soul is what can not fade.

    Pain In These Eyes

    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...
