    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...

    I crawl down the stairs,

    bruised, beaten, My own hand smoked with bloody execution. In search of something more, something to satisfy my hunger. My never-ending, soulless, insatiable hunger. The need is more than the want. The supply cannot keep up with my demands. And I DEMAND to be free. To be let...

    Love Me: Love me to the extreme,

    It's simple as one-two-three. Kiss me like there is no tomorrow, And I'll follow. Tell me you are in, And if you capture my heart...you win. Just please, Love me...........

    In Sleepless Hours

    In nighttime's sleepless hours my reverie of you takes hold I place a kiss so gentle as not to stir a sleeping baby on the face that fills my waking hours and haunts my dreams You alone are my Northern lights, evoking a rainbow of cascading colours, Plumes of light that fill the...

    Time to go: Set me free,

    Or I'll leave. I can't stand you anymore, Don't call me your mi'amore. I can't stand your lies, This is where I say good bye. So long, Farewell, It's time for you to put someone else under your spell.

    I just feel like Christmas has lost its meaning.

    It's so commercialistic We're free and fairly sober But with so many toys to build The machines are kind of tricky Someone may get killed But we gladly work for nothing Which is good because the don't intend to pay minimum wage The elves are back to work today! Hip hip Hooray...

    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...

    A Christmas Thought. by Edward York I have

    seen a lot of things in life, But nothing can compare, To the joyful look in a child’s face, And the excitement living there. I have seen my own child climb out of bed, Hours before the sun, To find what presents are waiting there, And open every one. For he went to bed...

    The Winds Of Time

    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...
