    I exist on the edge of your lips As a ghost of

    a kiss As a veil in your thoughts and dreams Image of my red lips and red hair Is what you remember But no life is behind those thin eyes While the real ones gleamed that colour Like the rest of me Silences, fragmented Shards tearing us apart Or perhaps we were always torn...

    My Fate Apologies on repeat Like a broken

    record I knew better I put myself in this position Just when I think I'm winning I start losing This game called love It's so confusing A vicious cycle with no conscience No remorse, I made my choice I sacrificed my heart Was torn apart by feelings I let loose It's a noose...

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    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...

    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...

    that I'm going insane That what I say is crazy, wrong, and in vain I never meant to offend you, but thought I would be weak To see the signs in front of me, yet turn the other cheek And when I spoke, and I could tell the war I waged would not end well I apologized and I began to...

    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...

    Deeper Stranger.

    Sitting in the cold 
Trying a different pain

    
The ice isn’t enough 
Frustration, anger, fear,
Failure…
Sitting alone in the cold 
Wanting a different pain 
I found it
Below my fingertips
But stop
Lo and Behold 
Stop 
He loves you
Stop. 
He. Loves. You. 
Stop!
Shivering, crying, screaming...

    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...

    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...

    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.
