    February 21, 2014) When I was sitting at the park, waiting for the bark. I seen your face in 2 different places and I hope to see you again. When I was sitting in the room playing with the broom, out the window I seen your face in 2 different places and I hope to see you again...

    Where the wild roses grow.

    .. by moiMusic: Where the wild roses grow... EklipseIn late spring and summer half light,Searching on mountain sides,For the flower and thorn,Adapting it self to love and war,The push and pull of desire and passionAnd souls exposure to a dream,That never will be.There, eclipsed...

    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...

    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...

    (Overdosed, December 7,

    2013) There was a time when the sky was Grey and there was no birds in the sky. I stayed inside and finished it. Them I fell into a deep sleep. I almost died. I miss that black train home. Woke up in a hospital. I was in a coma. Coma. I overdosed.

    If I could kill myself tonight,

    I would do it slowly so I can watch myself bleed. Bleed out the venomous blood from the pain ridden body of mine. So I can slowly dig the blade into my doings, and seep out the darkness cast upon me. If I could kill myself tonight, I would rifle my heart and my soul, purge out...

    made in numbers, but alas my greatest conflict is what the recluse encumbers. With my heavy heart and pale skin I am the lonely Introvert and so I lock my mind away to help protect my soul from hurt. Could this be a depravity? An immunity to myself, with a cruel lack of...
