    The Touch Where the tears fall

    and the darkness is within The sadness brings to bear the emotions of things The numbing isolation that lack of touch brings The incomparable sadness, the cool Calm quiet of dreams Deceived within the Devils hands Parting like sheep from the herd The aching surging and the...

    I miss you more than words can say I miss you

    each and every day I miss you when the sun rises I miss you when the sun goes back down I miss you in the evenings , wish you were here I miss you in my bed, holding me close there I miss you in between the hours and the minutes I miss you so tenderly much , I miss you so.

    Not The End Of Me

    I have let the light go,But not let the dark in,The pain from withing spreading my fears,You and I,Standing here alone,We are like each other,The pain consuming me,This world is nothing but a dream,A peace of a shattered memory,Here we go,The secrets we never shared,Each time we...

    We’re packing up the camper today Won’t you

    come along with us? Don’t know where we will go Don’t know yet where we will stay Could be this layby or that parking bay One thing that is certain is that the time will be gay We could sit by the sea Supping a cup of tea Or by the motorway Just passing time of day Or even...

    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...

    When I see you, death creeps closer.

    Splinters fill my heart by the thought of your existence. Your voice echoes the reality of all that is wrong with society. I cringe by sight of your grin as you share tales of your life occurrences. Die; away from me.

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    On the platform I watched with fascination the lovers at the station Lost in tender admiration I had to turn my gaze away. For the first time in a long time I missed your smile today. Living life at a pace, agents to please, speeches to make and deadlines to keep. The only time...

    Short story: She stands outside of the

    house. The house where everything began. The woman glares at it, the broken windows, the ashed wood where a fire had swept through a few years ago. She shakes her head in disgust, turning and walking silently into the night, where she truly belongs.

    A woman dancing over the ocean.

    Two men guarding their goddess from harm. A soft pink breeze sliding over the sky., ringing the charms. A cat behind a spinning black orb. A soft web behind my ear, a spider spinning. A softness that is unforgettable. A womans voice. An Angel guiding me towards his flame. A...

    A life lead by an unwritten word.

    This one word holds power over you, yet you know nothing of how it's spelled or even what it may refer to. All you know is how it feels. It's something you can never know, yet something you already do. You live this way, always longing for something you know you cannot have. You...

    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...

    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...

    Scary Wears Boots Dance in the darkness.

    So alive amid dying light, Embraced by the night, Illuminate with unseen bliss. The earth is your canvas. Scary, yet I’ve no fear. From afar I see slow dancing: On haunted soil, frolicking In ragged dress with messy hair, Awkward steps oh, so dear. Remove your cozy boots...

    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...

    She stood still in the dark,

    Deeper Stranger.

    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.
