    Deeper Stranger.

    Deeper Stranger. My heart is as deep as the Hudson River. Its fresh with unpredictable currents. Once a murky barren zone is now the object of a mid summers swim. My mind is a twisted Christmas peppermint stick. Its stale and forgotten in your grandmothers garage, along with...

    Garden...

    I planted this seed... watered it with my blood... tried my best to shine... my inner light upon it... so it might prosper... grow strong.... but as it broke through the soil... I knew it was fragile... maybe I sheltered it too much... perhaps I didn't give it... as much as I...

    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...

    The Hello To My Good-bye The world,

    so beautiful yet so cruel, so peaceful but full of raging wars. Every smile is led by a frown. In the darkness I see it. I see the peace. But when night turns to day. I’m just another person born upon a grave. Are we not all bid a due with the warm welcome of hello when we...

    Not Afraid.

    Do not be afraid of life,the pain,the peril and the strife.Do not shrink with fear and dread from the things that lie ahead. Do not be afraid to try-for no goal can be too high.You may fail but don't complain,you can always try again. Do not be afraid to speak,to adventure and to...

    She Lies Easy

    why did you come here -- is it to take me tonight? The face of an angel but with eyes as deep as the grave, a never ending hole leading to a world beyond this. I can see within you there lives pain, bags you yet to touch --- Outside a shield surrounds you; please, I ask...

    SILENCE: The treasures of life,

    they are plenty. The sorrows of life are but few; But the sorrows just take all our energy, No matter the good that we knew. We don’t always take time to be happy, It just seems too easy to be sad. We too often punish for goodness, And praise those who want to be bad. The...
