    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...

    If Only They Spoke ...

    I burn my city away on cheap nights,

    eight glasses wasted on a dry throat. The sound of boots squishing raw soil set a course of sirens through my rotting ears, ******* my dilated pupils into the boiling sun, crying in the presence of my son, yet there I am, seated among thinly threaded confessions...

    My Fate Apologies on repeat Like a broken

    record I knew better I put myself in this position Just when I think I'm winning I start losing This game called love It's so confusing A vicious cycle with no conscience No remorse, I made my choice I sacrificed my heart Was torn apart by feelings I let loose It's a noose...

    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...

    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...

    I created waves for you,

    tuned them perfectly to go with the wind. A glass of cherry red and a fine book too. Started from the clouds and changed each hue. Made them fine-tasting cupcakes so you would ask for me. Sang you a fine tune when you couldn't see. My voice was there when everyone had left. My...

    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...

    Another closed door, Another blocked path,

    Another goodbye And another broken heart. A challenge ahead, A burnt bridge behind. Tear streaked cheeks, Shattered pieces of heart on the floor. I messed up, Like I always do. You gave me love, I walked away... Another lost friend, Another lost love. I fell a hundred times, But...

    Threads Of Ourselves

    The feelings we share I ride like a wave, The ups the downs the direction they make, On a magic carpet that we made, From threads of ourselves,and the pattern we laid the vessel counts as much as the map, The carriage awaits for us to step up, I admit Its scary as it might...

    Her Death Brought Her Life

    She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...

    Death, dying The family - crying People fade.

    Only memories remain. Losing his closest, It hurts and he knows it. Loneliness, grief Happiness is brief. To others, he's stronger But he can't live much longer. The pain is too much. He considers death and such. The end is near. Death - he does not fear He didn't need you...

    Siren of the Deep I find your footprints

    So alive amid dying light, Embraced by the night, Illuminate with unseen bliss. The earth is your canvas. Scary, yet I’ve no fear. From afar I see slow dancing: On haunted soil, frolicking In ragged dress with messy hair, Awkward steps oh, so dear. Remove your cozy boots...

    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.
