    Motions

    Marilyn Monroe in the Underworld Now

    when I'm all alone I have to take out a loan on happiness, nothing less. Now I don't need any muscle tone to push this boulder to the designated zone. Sisyphus laughs, belly laugh. At least I'm not stuck down in Tartarus going through bouts of disappointment like a Saturday at...

    Help Yourself ~ You coveted my brain so you

    put your hands all over it. Picking through it with your fingers, choosing what you'd take for your own. You coveted my skin so you put your breath all over it. Hitting like an oven leaving it parched and dry. You coveted my heart so you put your mind all over it...

    How do you let go of someone who wasn't yours

    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...

    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...

    How can silence seem

    so loud? How can one feel so lonely amongst a crowd? A bitter, broken heart beats wildly but falls on ears. Eyes glassy but cheeks dry, holding back her tears. Longing to make a connection different from rest. Will time make her more bitter still, or can she survive this test...

    In Sleepless Hours

    When you see the world

    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.
