    If everyone was a tree,

    then I want to be no more than a burning ember, to scotch from the outside of their bark, to turn their veins into ash.

    The Gates Of Heaven And Hell

    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 Sunny Day In Thalamus

    I'm sick, and it's a pretty little illness A prefrontal bacteria that eats away my willingness To live within the social parenthesis I'm twisted, sick from this political annilingus. The jacket that I'm wearing will define my disorder I'm due to see a professional Visceral...

    Her Death Brought Her Life

    She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...

    Our EP Gesture Dance

    Waking up in the morning, another day dawns, I rush to my computer, I flip the cold box on. As it's familiar sounds start, Time to pour a cup, I rush back to sign on, To see if he's already up. The "Sign In" is complete, Today begins anew, I gesture "Good Morning...

    The doctor couldn't even find what was wrong

    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...

    I wrote this poem in honor of Leonard Nimoy's

    passing, may he rest in peace. For those who may not know who that is, he played Spock in Star Trek. There was a man He told me to be logical And so I studied There was a man He showed me what it means to be selfless And so I did my best to be like him There was a man he...

    Never and always- Never give up

    as they dictate, never give in to their hate. Always fight against the tricksters plots of fun, always move on when the deeds have been done. Seldom will they assist, Why won't they get the gist. Seldom do they protect, I know, for I have felt the neglect. Remember those who...

    Deeper Stranger.

    I have read at many poetry readings

    and have published a book of poems in the last year... I still fear sharing my work with people. Whether they will hate it, or steal it, or not understand it... So we'll see. I hope to share something at least.

    You banish me from the heavenly sky.

    Left me there willing to die. My wings are broken and soakin with blood. Knowing I wouldn't have Gods heavenly love. Now I'm on earth all alone. Knowing that I'll never coming back home. A fallen angel that made a mistake. Wishing to take back but it was too late.

    Hope is held, hope is found.

    It's within us all, not just laying around. It's there where your heart is and it's behind your eyes. That's why we feel hope can be lost, when one of us cries. Take care of your heart, catch your tears. Then you'll have hope throughout your years.

    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.
