    BOOK OF LIFE (c) 2015 Edward York Your book of

    life is written in, Every single day. All the task that you have done, And the thoughts along the way. You write out every chapter, And every single page. The book keeps growing every day, Reflective of your age. Some chapters filled with laughter, But some of sorrow too...

    The caterpillars dance You crawled inside my

    cocoon and left me with butterflies when I wanted you, however I saw my own demise. Reborn without my love, in a world I don't understand, only a few moments after I felt your heart firsthand. And I argue to myself about what is obsolete, when beauty is now hidden and ugliness...

    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...

    I've kissed more bottles

    than boys but in the end you learn to love the pain you feel I've figured out sometimes to stay alive you have to kill your mind but listen here there is no feeling as tragic as wishing you had tried harder

    The Mask

    I’m great, fine, spectacular. In a way I relish every night, and I live every day. I live, I laugh, I write, I sing, I wonder what the new days will bring. Then I get home, and I take off the mask. The day, an almost impossible task, Is finally over, and so I lay Down, and wait...

    Our EP Gesture Dance

    Waking up in the morning, another day dawns, I rush to my computer, I flip the cold box on. As it's familiar sounds start, Time to pour a cup, I rush back to sign on, To see if he's already up. The "Sign In" is complete, Today begins anew, I gesture "Good Morning...

    She Lies Easy

    She lies easy in my arms This dimly moonlit night Her body supple to my charms She moans with such delight I brush her hair back, find her neck And kiss her softly there My lips they trace her gentle curves They make her arch and swear While fingers brush and pinch and...

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    Not The End Of Me

    I have let the light go,But not let the dark in,The pain from withing spreading my fears,You and I,Standing here alone,We are like each other,The pain consuming me,This world is nothing but a dream,A peace of a shattered memory,Here we go,The secrets we never shared,Each time we...

    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...

    THE TWISTED PATH (c) 2015 Edward York The

    twisted path that lies ahead, Can fill our hearts with fear. The reasons for this anxiety, Is not exactly clear. The path ahead is still unknown, And we don’t know where to tread. We could find out if we explore, But we avoid the path instead. We fear the things that we don...

    April’s Shower We all watched

    as they dragged her away. Sat stunned with fingers through the cage…as they dragged her away. Raced tears down by-standing faces…as they dragged her away. Closed ears from silent screams…as they dragged her away. We all watched…as they dragged her away.

    You are my sadness. I keep you with me,

    where no one can see... Just how long it's been. You are my poetry. A poem I can't seem to finish. Just one clumsy line spilling into the next. You are my happiness. A low glass ceiling. Just so you can watch. You are my sadness.

    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.

    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...
