    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...

    If Only They Spoke ...

    If only they spoke ... .. Those walls .. If only they spoke ... To tell about that hidden truth and what really goes around .. To tell about those secretive screams that never made a sound .. To tell about those real smiles that yet haven't been found .. To tell how those lies...

    I loathe your slinking presence That slithers

    back into my dreams. Like an unwanted ghost Haunting my nights Haunting my dreams. You use others to do your bidding. With promises of love and affection. They say you miss me But I know that's not true, Because when I needed you most You withdrew. I no longer desire your...

    Garden...

    I planted this seed... watered it with my blood... tried my best to shine... my inner light upon it... so it might prosper... grow strong.... but as it broke through the soil... I knew it was fragile... maybe I sheltered it too much... perhaps I didn't give it... as much as I...

    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...

    Not Afraid.

    Do not be afraid of life,the pain,the peril and the strife.Do not shrink with fear and dread from the things that lie ahead. Do not be afraid to try-for no goal can be too high.You may fail but don't complain,you can always try again. Do not be afraid to speak,to adventure and to...

    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.

    In Sleepless Hours

    June 2015 You've got me thinking

    Today I had a funeral For a past life.

    Sitting in the cold 
Trying a different pain

    
The ice isn’t enough 
Frustration, anger, fear,
Failure…
Sitting alone in the cold 
Wanting a different pain 
I found it
Below my fingertips
But stop
Lo and Behold 
Stop 
He loves you
Stop. 
He. Loves. You. 
Stop!
Shivering, crying, screaming...
