    Dancing In The Rains Of Chance

    As I lay back down to sleep to dream of nature's virtue, sweet to dream of her within my mind, to dream of once upon a time to dream the dream of happy ever afters to dream once more of nature's laughter to know it teases, taunting, pleasing and in it's recourse I lay...

    Our EP Gesture Dance

    Waking up in the morning, another day dawns, I rush to my computer, I flip the cold box on. As it's familiar sounds start, Time to pour a cup, I rush back to sign on, To see if he's already up. The "Sign In" is complete, Today begins anew, I gesture "Good Morning...

    This is short. I wrote this generically

    but have been there some I thought other might see themselves in it. I didn’t want to love you You made me anyway; You tricked me with the things you’d do, And all the things you’d say. I always hoped you’d love me back, I always thought you could, But now it is...

    A Sunny Day In Thalamus

    You tell me I'm looking good!

    But you haven't seen the scars I've made.. You tell me I'm always happy! I smile back with suicide on my mind.. If you could sense my mood, You'd know I'm filled with hate, Not for you or for him, but hatred for me. You've no idea how I feel, so **** off if you'd be so kind...

    Stalking

    It never rightfully belonged to me But I wanted it nonetheless, So when you were distracted and couldn’t see I took it, I confess. I thought that it might take a while For you to realize your mistake, And though I felt guilty in my guile I held it close, for love’s sake...

    Deeper Stranger.

    Dusk falls, Colors become monochrome.

    Car headlights become more visible than cars. Crested waves pound darkening pebbles. Sea mist softens adjacent hills. Sea sounds remain constant, As daylight metamorphoses.

    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.
