    T'is the Season It's Christmas time

    once again, And the sound of caroling fills the air. All of the stores are full of toys, With decoration everywhere. I too am glad for this joyous time And I am with them all the way. I just think that they should try And wait till after Labor Day.

    Passion Passion lies sleeping Underneath the

    embers of desire, Awakened by need The body knows what it requires. Skin against skin, Flesh against flesh, Together our Two bodies will mesh. Seething beneath the surface The heat rises to the top. Bringing our desire to a boiling point, In which we can not stop. Two...

    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...

    Motions

    Anger surged through my veins… My mind alive

    with lava infused within My head in limbo, tip-tapping what to do. The clock measuring how angry I could be As if anger had a limit to harm thee So when anger struck two, An evil force pushed through A refreshing hint came to halt But not yet sweet but bitter at fault And so...

    The Winds Of Time

    The winds of time erode away The memories of our past, Leaving us with shadowy thoughts That disappear too fast. And so we cling with all our might And try to hold them near, All the things for which we care, And those that we hold dear. No matter how much we try to cling...

    Wall Of Steel Whats this?

    you cannot say you love me
for I am the ocean

    
and you have only seen a drop of water
you can spend your life 
putting the puzzle pieces together
but it will take far to long to see the big picture

you will loose interest 
and begin a new puzzle
one with less...
