    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...

    Title: Bright Illusions The world is draped

    fully grey. For fantastical dualities. Cannot survive true reality. Like the fairytale "Good And Evil".

    UNDERSTANDING DEPRESSION Living with

    depression is not an easy thing going thru each day not knowing what it may bring. It's not as easy as you may think to wash it all straight down the sink. I have ups and downs, but I still do try but when I mess up, you scold and I cry. With depression you can be happy or sad...

    CRAYON ON THE WALL (c) 2015 by Edward York My

    memories never fail to flow, Back to when you were small; To toys scattered on the floor, And crayon on the wall. I remembered all the questions asked, On trips with just us two, Like why is the water wet, And why the sky is blue. Those times we had were simple times, Your...

    Will To Fight

    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...

    I sit on my bridge, watching waters pass under.

    I dream of boats floating by, unable to make it back up. I can see you from here, watching deep currents pulling you under, unable to make it back up. I can't hear your apologies from here, but I have heard them before. I sit on my bridge, watching waters of who I thought you...

    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...

    On nights like these,

    MY DAY STARTED (c) 2015 by Edward York I sat

    and held my coffee cup, The day had just begun. The morning battled to take control, As the clouds still blocked the sun. Orange and crimson were everywhere, As the yellow ray peeked through. The day was almost finally here, And I had lots to do. This was the time I cherished...

    Heaven by: Rob Paquin Heaven hides within

    I am the one, that we all are.

    A shining product of a fallen star. Not to be mistaken as the one we seek, A reflection of him, that tends the weak. Brought to see with Omniscient power. Activation within, the lotus flower. Peace of mind, and piece of it all. Piece of Universe, Never to fall.

    You are the lady of the lake; dancing with the

    but Lust and Flesh not but Dust and if you ask me what I am I'll tell you I'm lost. This crumbs are not enough for me to find my way home; I wonder if I've ever had one.

    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...
