    Storms of Life You stood

    and watched the storms come in, But did not dare to speak, You wanted to try and get away, But I was just too weak. The storms it seems were the storms of life, delivering on your fate. You still might make it through, If you can only wait. But life still battles on it...

    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...

    She Lies Easy

    Just Another Saturday Night Just another

    Saturday night. The two of us enveloped in cavernous darkness. Each movement, each sound sure to attract attention. Up front -- bright lights. Somewhere, a glass shatters. Sounded close What's that crunching sound? Someone walking on broken glass? Look, the window's...

    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.

    Fires ablaze within my eyes,

    A smile concealing all my lies, Screaming, begging, calling out, A final, frantic, desperate, shout. Scarlet tears drip from each vein, A vehement covet to end this pain, This silver blade, stays by my side, Because all hope inside has died. As each day ends, and darkness...

    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...
