    The Broken Spirit

    The girl that died of a heartache passed me in the night whispering memories of youI stood to frightened to move for fear my eyes cast a lightand the darkness she drew like a cape around her shoulders.Her tears fell like jewels on the crushed lovers rulesthat you broke to bring...

    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...

    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...

    Not The End Of Me

    I have let the light go,But not let the dark in,The pain from withing spreading my fears,You and I,Standing here alone,We are like each other,The pain consuming me,This world is nothing but a dream,A peace of a shattered memory,Here we go,The secrets we never shared,Each time we...

    A short poem of mine,

    titled: 'Thumb war with social anxiety' My open palms trustingly push the dust ridden, french shutters from ajar to open. Tantalizing gusts of winter ambush my boyish face. I am temporarily blindfolded whilst my eyes fend off the morning sunlight. The birth of new day, my...

    The Mask

    I’m great, fine, spectacular. In a way I relish every night, and I live every day. I live, I laugh, I write, I sing, I wonder what the new days will bring. Then I get home, and I take off the mask. The day, an almost impossible task, Is finally over, and so I lay Down, and wait...

    I dream a dream of a wondrous place,

    but it is neither here nor there. It is but only a dream, one in which can not be attained. The perfect exit, the perfect plan, to enter a world of much better things. The way out is not far near, and it will be a time of celebration, for the journey will be rendered dear. Life...

    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...
