    Will To Fight

    Another night has come and gone and here I sit all alone wondering what the hell I did wrong Trying to pick myself up and carry on Though it's tough when you have been beaten up by life Lost your will to fight Trying not to listen to the voices in your head Fighting against the...

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    On the platform I watched with fascination the lovers at the station Lost in tender admiration I had to turn my gaze away. For the first time in a long time I missed your smile today. Living life at a pace, agents to please, speeches to make and deadlines to keep. The only time...

    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 Sleepless Hours

    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...

    Dusk falls, Colors become monochrome.

    Car headlights become more visible than cars. Crested waves pound darkening pebbles. Sea mist softens adjacent hills. Sea sounds remain constant, As daylight metamorphoses.
