    In The Gloam

       In the gloam deep in the forest where the faeries sleep There is one who knows She knows the full measure of you; the flame your smile kindles The ache your brown eyes afford with every stroke And the wake you leave in your leaving. In the gloam deep in the forest where the...

    Dreams I've Outgrown by josephwrites The sun

    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...

    In Sleepless Hours

    Ashes to ashes, Dust to dust,

    I spoke my truth, And now it's bust; I kept it whole, And kept it real, But comments were made, On how I feel; I speak again, Instead of mute, A bravery song, A grand salute.

    Can there be one without all three? Our future seems so hard to see.. Can it be you only lust for me, you don't really see me. You see a fantasy. In a moment, you can own it, you can stop the lies and your fake alibi. You don't really need me, just a Fuсk, that's all it can...

    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.

    The Winds Of Time

    You're always there When the rest are gone.

    Pain stands behind your eyes Rising with the tears. Emotions sit on your lips. A life A past A story All of it I know. You're always there, Slowly changing, Along with me. Always mimicking. I've always known What you'll do next. Until the mirror smashes. Pieces everywhere. And...
