    She Lies Easy

    She lies easy in my arms This dimly moonlit night Her body supple to my charms She moans with such delight I brush her hair back, find her neck And kiss her softly there My lips they trace her gentle curves They make her arch and swear While fingers brush and pinch and...

    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...

    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...

    Mirror, Mirror on the wall,

    My back faced to the bathroom stall, Why do I see my face, But not what's inside. Why does my body insist that I hide? Who I really am, And what people see, Are two different things. Of who I am and my body. No one knows who I am, All they see is a face. All they see is...

    Dancing In The Rains Of Chance

    As I lay back down to sleep to dream of nature's virtue, sweet to dream of her within my mind, to dream of once upon a time to dream the dream of happy ever afters to dream once more of nature's laughter to know it teases, taunting, pleasing and in it's recourse I lay...

    Here we are, Here, today,

    now, happy to be enjoying life, one moment at a time, growing! Once we let all the distractions fall away and connect ourselves to the joy of being. Stay alive, thrive, and enjoy it all.

    that I wanted it; not until I missed you. Until I was missing being held, to feel like I mattered to someone. I realised then that perhaps I wasn't missing you but I was missing what you represented. You represented everything I want; things that I didn't know I was allowed to...

    The Winds Of Time
