    ALONE I can walk alone And often do For the

    path I take Goes with me too I can work alone And think it is fun To start a task And see it done I can sleep alone For once I'm there My dreams will take Me everywhere I can stand alone And face the fight I will not run If I know I'm right But love alone I can not do There...

    A Sunny Day In Thalamus

    I'm sick, and it's a pretty little illness A prefrontal bacteria that eats away my willingness To live within the social parenthesis I'm twisted, sick from this political annilingus. The jacket that I'm wearing will define my disorder I'm due to see a professional Visceral...

    It is one of those dark days when the

    supercilious clouds lose their carefree haughtiness become laden with substance and move ever closer to us as if longing for embrace. An imperious sky relearning humility apologizing for it’s distance as it opens itself up and softly weeps.

    One essence of life, Can take long

    strides  Existence --insane  Brushes with pain  Inner - outer  Look through the water  We observe ourselves  We perceive ourselves  As long as we see  The truth is with thee  Much peace -nat the blue eyed cat

    They Told Me, Well Tried.

    They told me I take life too seriously, so I made them laugh. They tried to say I had a learning disability, I haven't had a B, in over 5 years, and I take advanced classes. They said I couldn't sing, I play guitar, write my own music, (& sing) and I've been asked if I could be...

    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...

    Disappointment burns,

    it's a bitter feeling, You expect, you get ready, you wait. Suddenly there's nothing left, you thought you were hilling, Maybe it's Murphy, or sweet revenge, maybe just fate.

    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...
