    The Broken Spirit

    When Emptiness fulfilled us,

    we drifted away Time and time again, but I refuse to today As you and I know that in this relationship We always create smiles that we hold on each lip We're the special two and every time we descend I realise that you truly are my best friend I feel so close to you. I feel...

    I realised its a passing grace,

    borrowed time in a creative place. Held so dear this precious time, do it now whilst in your prime. Don't wait too long for sand to fall, the predator it stalks us all. Life is precious, enjoy it.

    In The Gloam

       In the gloam deep in the forest where the faeries sleep There is one who knows She knows the full measure of you; the flame your smile kindles The ache your brown eyes afford with every stroke And the wake you leave in your leaving. In the gloam deep in the forest where the...

    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...

    T'is the Season It's Christmas time

    once again, And the sound of caroling fills the air. All of the stores are full of toys, With decoration everywhere. I too am glad for this joyous time And I am with them all the way. I just think that they should try And wait till after Labor Day.

    In Sleepless Hours

    A Sunny Day In Thalamus

    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.

    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...

    Our Paths. The paths in life are everywhere,

    As far as we can see. And it is hard to pick the one, That is the best for me. One false step is all it takes, For Destiny to change it’s plan, And then it is for us to adapt, And live our life as best we can. Things don’t always happen, In...

    Closed eyes and minds transcending from being

    the feet on hands To the feet on knees, Volitional hands grasping to push their thumbs into my palms, Can you feel the burning in your soul? We're blinded fools standing in a circle in a room.

    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...

    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...
