    All of the doubt and fear As with an unshed

    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...

    "Broken Poetry." Broken spirits,

    Broken minds, Don't know how to tell the time, Don't know have to live this life, I'm on the outside looking in, I'm on the inside said looking out, Memories, a photo a page and layers, Don't know how to tell the world I'm sorry, Guess I keep on going even without a story...

    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...

    Dancing In The Rains Of Chance

    Think only tranquil thoughts

    as you rest your head Against my chest. Can you hear a storm approaching? That's my heart! It rages as your warm breath Sweeps against the broad cage That barely can contain it. But have no fear. It is a heart that cannot draw, 'though it would bleed Should your cheek forsake it...

    Well I haven't written any poems

    for years, but when I was writing all the time, I had some gems that I will share as soon as I dig my poem book out of storage some day. Who knows, maybe I'll begin writing again too.

    I am a freckle, a speck,

    a minuscule fragment that exists in a void of space we call our existence. Plagued by the debt to pay reverence to an unknown variable that deems my worth with my devout troth, to which I cannot deny but instead do so more as to mindlessly oblige. I am minuscule, my worth is...

    She Lies Easy

    You lay with me in the wildflower meadowBeside

    a serenading streamIn a tapestry bound by threads of fancy,A tangled weave of tangled dreams.The tall grass, swept by gentle rhythmStirred by an impulsive kiss,Became the whisper of a sighResponsive to my hand's caressAnd, as we lay, my eyes were drawnAbove to cloudless phthalo...

    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...

    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...

    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.
