    When you lay in bed, Frustration running through your head, You want to reach out and touch, This is all way too much My mind would not have such a fight, ...If my girl was not so far away tonight ♥

    The Winds Of Time

    The winds of time erode away The memories of our past, Leaving us with shadowy thoughts That disappear too fast. And so we cling with all our might And try to hold them near, All the things for which we care, And those that we hold dear. No matter how much we try to cling...

    I tried journaling to help me express things

    that I couldn't say aloud. Things I need to say but can't verbalize. It didn't work. I couldn't find the correct words to put in the journal. I would read over what I had written and it would feel as if someone else had written it. In the past, I had written poems to my...

    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...

    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.
