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...
.. Gonna hold me down?.. Gonna blow me out?
Take my brains, without a doubt? You got my world in your hands, You can make demands,
tie my hands, but the truth is free.. You can kick me down, bring me to my knees, and demand a fee
But when you make a pistol click, it's just one...
You are lost
In faded colours of Summer's smile
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
blankets ascend off of my quivering structure dotted with my perspiration
the vortex my sheets formed on my bed frame
Looked like a work of art
And it occurred to me in such an intense surge
That I've never felt to such a degree
Which was a chilling experience itself
our smiles were renewed and you began to show me the pain that you covered
Again and again,
I heard you reaching when I was gone.
It all started to fade while I ran because
It seems something went wrong.
I'd do anything to make things
right but I can't seem...
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...
that time, in America
To be thankful for what is given
To be mindful of what could have been
Or what might have been, if.
And to be grateful for where you are
Right now, at this moment
I wish to be thankful
For I am no sorrowful ingrate
Who wants more than what fate brings
Roses are dull
violates are dying,
you say we dont care
but yet i am crying.
just fades away,
im left behind
we want you to stay.
In my eyes
im holding back tears,
scared and in pain
from all the past years.
We all care alot
we dont want you to go,
i try and stop you...
In nighttime's sleepless hours my reverie of you takes hold
I place a kiss so gentle as not to stir a sleeping baby on the face that fills my waking hours and haunts my dreams
You alone are my Northern lights, evoking a rainbow of cascading colours, Plumes of light that fill the...
we drifted away
Time and time again, but I refuse to today
As you and I know that in this relationship
We always create smiles that we hold on each lip
We're the special two and every time we descend
I realise that you truly are my best friend
I feel so close to you. I feel...
Morning, and the sunlight fills the world
I can feel the heat from my cheeks
It gives color to the world
And feed the plants and trees
At night, the moon start o show
It's beauty and amore
It lights up the world on its way
And never seems to go blue
They light and...
If only they spoke ...
.. Those walls .. If only they spoke ...
To tell about that hidden truth and what really goes around ..
To tell about those secretive screams that never made a sound ..
To tell about those real smiles that yet haven't been found ..
To tell how those lies...
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...
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...
Cracked and mummified knuckles
Built by muscle and homicidal tendencies,
A role model who snapped you,
Carved you with a chisel and ice pick,
Barely missed your eye,
Swipe, you dive left and conjure a sly smite,
Bloody half time renders him blind.
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...
Another night has come and gone and here I sit all alone
wondering what the hell I did wrong
Trying to pick myself up and carry on
Though it's tough when you have been beaten up by life
Lost your will to fight
Trying not to listen to the voices in your head
Fighting against the...
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,
old friend, now
tell me why you failed, how
you came so close, yet
you have yet to see my end.
At my throat did your blade set
already digging into my flesh
you had me, you saw me fold,
so why, my Demon, did you fail?
Demon, were you weak, afraid?
What thoughts raced in your...
like hand written love notes
perfumed hopes cherished brightly
one of a hundred that stand at the edge of reality
and in the near perfect unison of dropping lovely invitations
to the magazine advertisements man who is supposed to
sweep them off their feet
embers of desire,
Awakened by need
The body knows what it requires.
Skin against skin,
Flesh against flesh,
Two bodies will mesh.
Seething beneath the surface
The heat rises to the top.
Bringing our desire to a boiling point,
In which we can not stop.
She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...
Cos baby, I do..
I've made a prayer, a wish and it came true
You wonder what it is , you wonder who
All these couple of years, millions of seconds, minutes and hours ever since it came true
My heart just fell into my own heaven
And my mind just exploded into happy thoughts
I stand upon the epicenter of the world
I am at ultimate peace and harmony with myself
I stand where my body and spirit
Are at one with the universe and the cosmos
I gaze upwards to see a celestial
Divine of ambiance within the clouds
The clouds unveil...
with lava infused within
My head in limbo, tip-tapping what to do.
The clock measuring how angry I could be
As if anger had a limit to harm thee
So when anger struck two,
An evil force pushed through
A refreshing hint came to halt
But not yet sweet but bitter at fault
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...
It never rightfully belonged to me
But I wanted it nonetheless,
So when you were distracted and couldn’t see
I took it, I confess.
I thought that it might take a while
For you to realize your mistake,
And though I felt guilty in my guile
I held it close, for love’s sake...
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?
Dark blue moon filled heavens,
The blue tides of light.
When your Mezza Luna shone,
It shone brighter than any sun
In a tent
Rainbow kite sky
Red ribbon dancing,
In your white cotton sky,
Your mesmerising spells,
And Messa Luna smiles,
Heaven to my...

Ode to a Lost Sock
wet with tears as I say his name
He sewed me back together, limb to limb
Love is a very cruel and unjust game
Life took him from me
Life ripped him out of my hands
He had showed me who I could be
He showed me the beauty of the lands
I loved him with all of my heart
the door swings its motions
the air rushes through
the cycle it seems
But where is
what makes it new?
the people walk past
Below me the ground,
Above me the clouds
On the platform I watched with fascination the lovers at the station
Lost in tender admiration
I had to turn my gaze away.
For the first time in a long time I missed your smile today.
Living life at a pace, agents to please, speeches to make and deadlines to keep.
The only time...
holding a bead
weave that onto a necklace with your finest golden threads
weave my dreams into the fabric of your life
can you do it without breaking me
can you do it without making me silent when i should be singing
turn me on when i'm cold and alone
make the stars shine...
Waking up in the morning,
another day dawns,
I rush to my computer,
I flip the cold box on.
As it's familiar sounds start,
Time to pour a cup,
I rush back to sign on,
To see if he's already up.
The "Sign In" is complete,
Today begins anew,
I gesture "Good Morning...
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,
and in it's recourse
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...
who took all i had from me,
Who had stolen away from me
Family, Joy and Peace.
I sought help from my savior, Christ,
Praying for strength, begging for a sign,
Praying that for once I could simply smile.
The Lord, his cross was engulfed in fire
And bridges destroyed by rust...
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...
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
temporary cure for this insanity that I call home
But as you grew on me you grew on my heart.
To beautiful to wilt me away.
Strong enough to melt this wall that surrounds my soul from this hate that the world brings.
It brings a match with it
That sparks and sets alight an...
Memoriam De Dylan Greenwood.
Ultima Verit Eadem Locutio Verbum, In persona eius indicaverit ministraverit fiat
Quia etsi saepe sciendium

Uictoria sua duxit et deficere tua.

Each and Every Night
So much do I miss you that
Each and every night as I close my eyes
My heart sees your sparkling eyes, and your smile.
So much do I want you that
Each and every night as I think of you
My heart hears your sweet whispers and your...
fragments of my mind
Picking up the pieces of my sometimes brilliant thoughts
I thinking that I'm falling again, but I can't be sure
But, I know that I yelled back the thunder's call
I just can't tell you exactly what that means...
Somewhere within these darkened dead-end trials...
As far as we can see.
And it is hard to pick the one,
That is the best for me.
One false step is all it takes,
For Destiny to change it’s plan,
And then it is for us to adapt,
And live our life as best we can.
Things don’t always happen,
You missed a sign.
A memory that lost track of time.
And now your waiting in your blue shoes.
You didn't know what to say.
How could he cross your path?
After you'd left him so far behind?
A single smile.
A fake laugh, a gentle smirk.
It had been a while before...
there in the stillness of your nearness
you softly took my hand and shook loose yesterdays dream
you found me in every way left me without a word to say
timeless in your rose printed dress endlessly you kissed me
gently take me back where you discovered me
A chance to live a normal life
When I drink it makes it come out
So I can face it
Instead of face this empty space infront of me
I don't know what's in me
Or why it's there
But it's stuck to me
Like a uncureable disease
I've been stuck in the...
