    I planted this seed... watered it with my blood... tried my best to shine... my inner light upon it... so it might prosper... grow strong.... but as it broke through the soil... I knew it was fragile... maybe I sheltered it too much... perhaps I didn't give it... as much as I...

    A Christmas Thought. by Edward York I have

    seen a lot of things in life, But nothing can compare, To the joyful look in a child’s face, And the excitement living there. I have seen my own child climb out of bed, Hours before the sun, To find what presents are waiting there, And open every one. For he went to bed...

    Mosaic

    Broken pieces, shattered all around We heard the sound, when it all hit the ground Torn pages, in the book of my life In the pain and strife, seems like a losing fight Empty spaces, covered in clutter My heart skips paces, and my words come in stutters I see the places, where the...

    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...

    Light years far yet there you are.

    .. While waiting for the sun to rise Pink cotton candy clouds said hi/goodbye. Just one star's shinning, twinkling high. This sticky glitter star tickled my sight. She drops down slowly, puts up a fight. Can't let her be; though the sun just might. I stared at her night through...

    I crawl down the stairs,

    bruised, beaten, My own hand smoked with bloody execution. In search of something more, something to satisfy my hunger. My never-ending, soulless, insatiable hunger. The need is more than the want. The supply cannot keep up with my demands. And I DEMAND to be free. To be let...

    Time to go: Set me free,

    Or I'll leave. I can't stand you anymore, Don't call me your mi'amore. I can't stand your lies, This is where I say good bye. So long, Farewell, It's time for you to put someone else under your spell.

    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...

    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.

    The Winds Of Time
