    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...

    Time Is Precious If fear was a crime,

    I'd be guilty of it everyday. So, instead I'll just write this rhyme, using words I'd never say...out loud. My spine trembles, with an unknown ache. With this ancient heart, that nothing could resemble, feeling it's own earthquake...through a dark shroud. Retracing steps made...

    The Hello To My Good-bye The world,

    Deeper Stranger.

    Deeper Stranger. My heart is as deep as the Hudson River. Its fresh with unpredictable currents. Once a murky barren zone is now the object of a mid summers swim. My mind is a twisted Christmas peppermint stick. Its stale and forgotten in your grandmothers garage, along with...

    Waiting For a Train (photo Robert Doisneau) We

    Threads Of Ourselves

    The feelings we share I ride like a wave, The ups the downs the direction they make, On a magic carpet that we made, From threads of ourselves,and the pattern we laid the vessel counts as much as the map, The carriage awaits for us to step up, I admit Its scary as it might...

    Let the winter come Soon,

    my leaves will fall and you will see through me, my brown lines juxtaposed with brick, slate and sky. For now, I remain put together with light; as my green joy breaks down in the cooler air, I reveal to you what was already there: the yellow of my soul, masked by...

    Alone beneath an empty sky,

    the willow tree lay there to die. Abandoned, different, cold and dark, the only willow in the park. The other trees alive and fair, the willow broken sad and bare. Beneath the willow I sit to think, with all this sadness that I drink. Drinking, thinking on my own, like the...

    Where is the one, we cant seem to find.

    The one who never leaves, the depths of our minds. You dont know their name, or the looks on their face, but yet you still search, all over this place. You dont know who they are, or if they even exist, but until they are found, you'll always persist. Why? For the simplest...

    Less Am I less when you're around?

    Less then a whisper Not a sound Less than steam from a cup Less than hot yet rising up. Less than eyes That never stare Less a kiss Of breathy air. Am I less When you're around? Or am I more Just never found.

    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...
