    Her Death Brought Her Life

    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...

    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...

    I wrote this a while back

    but it is the way I feel often I sat alone And tried to think, Of words so grand, To put in ink. The words came slow, And uninspired. No cutesy rhymes, No expressed desire. No lover’s song, No wrong to right., No erotic rhyme, To fill the night. Inspiration, I could not...

    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...

    And started out today. The sun came out and dried the rain, And chased the clouds away. The storms of life are often like, The rains that falls at night. They are dark and mysterious too, And block us from the light. But if we find the right person in life, One whom with...

    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...

    Thread I drew the thread from my sleeve,

    It had bound me tightly. The thread became heavy, It forced my hand down. I held tightly until I tired, It fell from me slow as a feather. When it landed it broke my foot, I dare not pull another thread.
