    THE GIFT OF TIME(c) 2015 Edward YorkThe little

    hands I held today,Brought to my face a smile.And any troubles I may have had,Left me for a while.Even though you are short right now,In emotions you are tall.Possessing a great big growing heart,In a body that is small.I watched you try to make a choice,As your mind began to...

    Deeper Stranger.

    Deeper Stranger. 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...

    With Every Word Could a spider be more

    than size Slander be more than lies Could statues be more than stone A king be worth more than his throne They think when it doesn't hurt We mean that it's much worse Shoot us in the chest again One more day if we pretend You'll be seeing headlines It's all we ever dreamed To...

    Today I had a funeral For a past life.

    Her nails painted pink, Eyes rusted shut. They say the distance killed her. The coroner had a hard time identifying her. Her heart had grown too swollen then dried too quick. I wish I had told her at the time that happiness doesn’t last. But instead she went...

    How to Approach an Attractive Sentence Hey

    In Sleepless Hours

    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...

    In my internal demise I would exclaim how it

    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...
