    FOR OLD MEN AT THE CHESS TABLE They banned me

    from the park I fed pigeons at every morning. I was too emotionally attached to things that leave with the seasons. They say my rain clouds over-watered the plants and killed them. More time in bed, I thought, but I'm always looking for a reason. So I gave my bread money to the...

    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...

    I try to at least, I go with how I feel.

    Well here goes let me know what you think. Every night brings a new day Every moment brings a new memory Every breath brings life And every lesson learned should be remembered Hills will come in my path But it's up to me on how to get past it Whether it be the long way or the...

    In The Gloam

       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 where the...

    Roses for Madison Just like a rose everybody

    knows that you are so beautiful I held you too close to me, close enough to make me want to leave I still feel scars from me that you may not see I wish we could fix what was broke So instead of sending broken flowers I'll send you roses

    TRUTH Most lives are full of struggles As we

    begin each day; We can only hope the path we found Is the one where we should stay. You can’t always judge the path, Simply by its looks. And you can never gain wisdom, Just by what you read in books. So be grateful for experience, Whether good or bad. For we can learn...

    In Sleepless Hours

    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...

    A perfect moisture stirs within the air,

    smoothing the breeze into a sleepy lover’s caress encumbering the wispy strands through which limbs pass until all is slow and gauzy like a dream. This silken air was born in buzzing twilight Gently protecting all who ventured into it in the dark blunting the edges of a sharp...

    and if we only have tonight,

    would you hold me tight? would you kiss me softly? and tell me you love me? if we only have right now, will you slowly take away my pain? would you show me all I needed to see? would you make me happy?

    He sees her pain from the dark Vail he calls

    home. Knowing what will come if he makes contact. Yet he must see her talk to her, feel her. His heart heavy as he watches her from the shadows. He slips in selfishly only to disappear again. Only because he knows the destructive world he lives in and the creatures within it. He...

    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...

    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...

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    Sometimes I can't stand the stupidity.

    Those peeps don't get my empathy. Is it so hard to get yourself some education? Learn how to respect those without relation. I call it laziness, the craziness you spew, such ignorance. One can't be so arrogant to think they know everything. Someone once said a wise man knows...

    Deeper Stranger.

    Long Distance Love

    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.
