    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...

    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.

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    On the platform I watched with fascination the lovers at the station Lost in tender admiration I had to turn my gaze away. For the first time in a long time I missed your smile today. Living life at a pace, agents to please, speeches to make and deadlines to keep. The only time...

    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...

    Love? I lay awake, sleepless with things on my

    mind, Wondering about the love ill find, I hurt, I cry, But most importantly, I tried to die, I use to think, love is a lie, And hoping to love, i can say goodbye, But before i did, I found a love inside my heart that always hid, It opened up when i have found, The...

    In Sleepless Hours

    The Haze My tears are strangers,

    Arriving unannounced, Shaking, Never am I still, Anger at betrayal of the haze, For it too has abandoned me.

    The Haze II So tired,

    Mentally and emotionally, I wish for the haze, Beckon it's return, To be detached from everything, Impenetrable, Pain, disappointment, anger, Nonexistent, Energy and effort, Spent only to change masks, Oh, how I wish for the haze, I plead for it's relief.

    Miscarriage No one knew what was going on,

    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...
