    Motions

    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...

    ALONE I can walk alone And often do For the

    path I take Goes with me too I can work alone And think it is fun To start a task And see it done I can sleep alone For once I'm there My dreams will take Me everywhere I can stand alone And face the fight I will not run If I know I'm right But love alone I can not do There...

    Hiding the feelings that grow stronger The

    time we're apart feels longer The clock ticks and the cold breeze flows As for me,I know where my heart glows Covering the smile you cause me to make It's this nervousness that I must break These hidden feelings that I can't hide anymore As I walk up the path that lead to...

    And all I seem to think of is you,

    and you're breaking your promises, and sorry is all I can think, and all I need is to hear your voice again

    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...

    The Hello To My Good-bye The world,

    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.

    Poetry is how we say to the world,

    and to each other, "I am here." I talk about poetry as a way to document the world and our common experiences, to say what needs to be said in a direct, powerful and beautiful way.

    ~Holes In Suicide And Happiness The night

    was day, and the day was dark. I felt like everything was only just an imaginary dream. I saw you smiling, but only when I was happy. When I became trapped in my endless maze, you remain nothing but a stray. I woke up shaking, crying, missing, please come back to me. Blow...

    You were forbidden. With a taste of your mouth,

    you were poison. Your eyes carried a strong venom that pierced into mine, you were the soldier in the darkest of wars. A secret whisper in my ear, I was engulfed in your mystery. Our bodies tense, our lips locked, our souls entwined. But our demons at battle. Battling each other...
