    The Haze My tears are strangers,

    Arriving unannounced, Shaking, Never am I still, Anger at betrayal of the haze, For it too has abandoned me.

    Dancing In The Rains Of Chance

    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.

    Inspiration

    I sat alone And tried to think, Of words so grand, To put in ink. The words came slow, And uninspired. No cutesy rhymes, No expressed desire. No lover’s song, No wrong to right., No erotic rhyme, To fill the night. Inspiration, I could not find...

    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...

    In Sleepless Hours

    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...

    Flaws. It's what makes us human.

    People see. People judge. But who are we to judge others? People make mistakes. People change. Everyone has regrets because it's normal. No one is perfect. Nobody is the same. But what we all share are our emotions. Isn't that crazy? To know that no matter what you go through...

    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...

    Confliction Sometimes I hate the rain,

    It can be a remimder that I still remain, From the sky to the ground, A single drop that makes no sound, In the rain it can be hard to stop the tears, At times it feels like a lonesome world of fears, No fire can be lit, or the world be seen, Rain takes everything, thunder...

    The Winds Of Time
