    Garden...

    I planted this seed... watered it with my blood... tried my best to shine... my inner light upon it... so it might prosper... grow strong.... but as it broke through the soil... I knew it was fragile... maybe I sheltered it too much... perhaps I didn't give it... as much as I...

    Dreams are the eraser dust I blow off my page.

    They fade into the emptiness, another dark gray day. Dreams are only memories of the plans I had back then. Dreams are eraser dust and now I use a pen.

    My Fate Apologies on repeat Like a broken

    record I knew better I put myself in this position Just when I think I'm winning I start losing This game called love It's so confusing A vicious cycle with no conscience No remorse, I made my choice I sacrificed my heart Was torn apart by feelings I let loose It's a noose...

    She Lies Easy

    She lies easy in my arms This dimly moonlit night Her body supple to my charms She moans with such delight I brush her hair back, find her neck And kiss her softly there My lips they trace her gentle curves They make her arch and swear While fingers brush and pinch and...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
