    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.

    Mosaic

    Broken pieces, shattered all around We heard the sound, when it all hit the ground Torn pages, in the book of my life In the pain and strife, seems like a losing fight Empty spaces, covered in clutter My heart skips paces, and my words come in stutters I see the places, where the...

    In The Gloam

       In the gloam deep in the forest where the faeries sleep There is one who knows She knows the full measure of you; the flame your smile kindles The ache your brown eyes afford with every stroke And the wake you leave in your leaving. In the gloam deep in the forest where the...

    Love- (Explained By The Sky) Written in

    2013 **** A gray cast was set in rigid permanence. Though through it burst the occasional bit of light. It was meant to block the sun and it’s glorious rays. To remain, perhaps unto infinity. Yet somehow, a peek of blue formed in the gray Spreading outwards and changing...

    Toad's new adventureAnchors away!

    ! As captain toad embarks on a brand new adventure. His vessel is as unseaworthy as his dreams, and although his legs were made for land, his heart seeks islands far beyond the scope of his horizon...But he's quick to catch the tide, as on its sweeping swell he's swept to warmer...

    One day I came upon a lake

    Dark is the sky, Lonely is the night,

    Quiet is the wait. One wish, one dream, Two voices searching, Three little words. Dark is the sky, Lonely is the night, Quiet is the wait. You only know, And we have hope, I can only wish. Dark is the sky, Lonely is the night, Quiet is the wait.
