    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...

    Garden...

    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...

    What is the meaning to your life?

    We live and breathe oftentimes wondering what for. Our senses drive us to seek our form of satisfaction. Lies unveiled show us everything is indeed conditional. Lovers and friends betray us. God becomes fictitious. I am grateful for many things that have gone the way I want. But...

    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...

    In Sleepless Hours

    In nighttime's sleepless hours my reverie of you takes hold I place a kiss so gentle as not to stir a sleeping baby on the face that fills my waking hours and haunts my dreams You alone are my Northern lights, evoking a rainbow of cascading colours, Plumes of light that fill the...

    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...

    Society shapes us It drives us It conducts us.

    It tells us what to wear How to look In order to “fit in”. It tears us down Without ever bothering To rebuild us. It tells us we’re not good enough Tells us we don’t fit in Labels us. And when we take matters Into our own hands They mourn us. They feel “guilty...

    The Politician’s Crew We take our guy

    and dress him up, And send him on his way. We dance him out to make a speech, And tell him what to say. We’ve run the polls and got the stats, We know that he could win. We’ve advised him how he’s supposed to think, And we taught him how to grin. We taught him how to...

    I want your hands running down my body.

    I want to feel the warmth if your hands calming down the goosebumps all throughout my body lying naked in your arms. Come inside me and let this burning desire cool off by your fluids intertwining with mine. Your eyes leave me in a trance. I want you near. I want you here.

    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...

    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...

    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 Brand New Day The sun has risen to the dawn,

    As you start a brand new day. All the troubles of the past, Will all soon fade away. The future is now before you, And holds only a blank slate. It is for you to create all new, As you go out the gate. The future is full of promise. The past was full of tears, No one...
