    I'll Have Greater Gain I'm not sorry.

    It wasn't my fault. I am your loss I'll have greater gain. Don't think you left me broken For weeks and months and years I'm going to bounce back I'm going to prove you wrong. You weren't ready For a commitment like me I was ready You weren't You pretended like you were...

    It's been a while since I've written.

    . I gotta warm up again.. Untitled String lights, Streaming across the sky— Jittery shapes, That define curvatures beyond space. Bring me to the light— For I crave the knowledge Of curiosity. Tell me what it means, Tell me what lies beyond the lights—

    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...

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    Finally, a moment of quiet,

    everyone has their own limit Away from the negativity, when love turns to insanity But there's no one talking, when I find myself listening Not even a little brevity, or a chance at some clarity Alone with a worn spirit, now, it's too damned quiet

    How I Feel I was told

    that I could be anything The "anything" I chose was nothing I am wasted life and wasted intelligence To all around me, I am a hindrance. I take, never give; I hurt, never heal. My toxic behavior reflects how I feel.

    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...

    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...

    I like my bands in business suits,

    I watch them on TV. I'm working out most every day and watching what I eat. They tell me that it's good for me, but I don't even care. I know that it's crazy. I know that it's nowhere. But there is no denying that, it's hip to be square.

    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.
