    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...

    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...

    Night Feels. (For tthose nights

    when you feel calm, but spicy and someone is in your face but suddenly with a groove.) Night is like an iced tea. It comes in many flavors. To some it's tart without flair. But to me, it's sweet, tart, oohm, you just gotta add the right spark. Fruits of passion...

    It started 18 months ago in a serious way,

    sharing feelings and thoughts in word on pad. Now I'm up over 200+ poems and looking into publishing a coffee table book of my poems and photos together!

    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 am a poet, but my words do not flow.

    I am an artist, but my drawings I do not show. I am an actress, with no movie or show. I am sad, but my tears do not flow. I have a gift with no bow. I am a light, but I do not glow. I am a mountain but I stand too low. What am I? I am Man. A Human. We are all imperfect...

    Empty Hearts This feeling of been alone,

    Its a hatred, someone please come home, Sick and tired of this trembling fear, Its a paranoia I hold too dear, A hearts that been wasted, Had love, I never realised how bitter it tasted, Betrayel and broken, What of those promises that were spoken, Its twisted to think back...

    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.
