    The Mask

    I’m great, fine, spectacular. In a way I relish every night, and I live every day. I live, I laugh, I write, I sing, I wonder what the new days will bring. Then I get home, and I take off the mask. The day, an almost impossible task, Is finally over, and so I lay Down, and wait...

    All of the doubt and fear As with an unshed

    tear I'm not here to be loved It whispers in my ear A lesson that repeats As a weight that defeats While binding me in place Alone on quiet streets In my own masquerade The lies of my charade I pretend to be more In hopes sorrow can fade I acknowledge the pain As I stand...

    The night is settled

    and it's cold I'm full of lies and spitting gold. Hearts are sinking like a stone words are cutting to the bone. Settle down Simmer down Drink it down It's over now. Blood is tainted but sublime half awake but floating high. All their faces disappear all intentions turn to...

    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...

    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...

    Deeper Stranger.

    "Empire" I could not be centered.

    A center would ruin it. Of every crack Of every chip Revealing its heart From beneath the surface There is no need for a center. I would not belong. The air is young. The sun is fresh. The clouds are new. But the entire time They've watched the cracks And the entire time They...

    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...

    A flock of birds fly away,

    it's the start of a new day, a glass is broken, no words are spoken, the man stands and strives, starring at the knives, the memory of you rests inside, they had only cried, the sorrow remains and the shadows strength gains, no light to be seen, wishing it was all just a dream...

    I am a freckle, a speck,

    a minuscule fragment that exists in a void of space we call our existence. Plagued by the debt to pay reverence to an unknown variable that deems my worth with my devout troth, to which I cannot deny but instead do so more as to mindlessly oblige. I am minuscule, my worth is...

    There is hope It comes in surprising shapes. The past is Fought, Falsified, Faded… A distant, fleeting, feeling Buried and abandoned, Cleansed of its burdens. Where there is love, There is healing A garden of peace in the heart. The present is Safe, Spontaneous, Special...

    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.
