    YOUR STORIES (c) 2015 Edward York I always

    enjoyed when I met with you, You greeted me with a smile. I shook your hand and had a seat, And visited for a while. Your hand I felt was full of wrinkles, It was also stiff and cold. But your stories have warmed my heart, Since I was eight years old. Your stories were full of...

    July 2015 You were water; I was thirsty And

    what you gave me left me wanting more. Your waves rushed over me and I floated, feeling weightless Then sank down and scraped along the jagged ocean floor And tumbled beneath the surface until the tide dragged me to shore. As I lay there on the beach Blistered and bleeding, I...

    Here, alone is where I stand,

    All by myself in this forgotten land. Never have I ever experienced such solitude, But now is the time to prove my fortitude. Though the emptiness I feel seems everlasting, My heart must learn to cease its casting. For a heart can handle only so many cracks, Before it turns...

    I planted this seed... watered it with my blood... tried my best to shine... my inner light upon it... so it might prosper... grow strong.... but as it broke through the soil... I knew it was fragile... maybe I sheltered it too much... perhaps I didn't give it... as much as I...

    I created waves for you,

    tuned them perfectly to go with the wind. A glass of cherry red and a fine book too. Started from the clouds and changed each hue. Made them fine-tasting cupcakes so you would ask for me. Sang you a fine tune when you couldn't see. My voice was there when everyone had left. My...

    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.

    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...
