    Stab the vein one more time Here's to tomorrow

    again The only difference between us Is how we both have seen us Some days the birds will fly Or crash into the sky They don't need to be justified Just use your wings By whatever it means Leave it all behind you If that's what you need I'm sick of watching And waiting to pass...

    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...

    She corners me Then whispers me her poetic

    verses laced with love And although Id always find her art appealing I can't be with her This thing that she wants will never be enough She doesn't believe me when I say I'm no longer good for her I love her still And I always will But I'm not willing too go down that road...

    Burning inside, an urge to create,

    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...

    Tattoo Tears I wish I was you; I don’t want

    to be me. Let me become everybody, so I will be able to feel good about my sanity. I feel I am blind, bound by shackles. “Let me go!” What has a hold of me? All I desire is love, something I can observe in others. This is why I hate to see my reflection; because it’s a...

    Threads Of Ourselves

    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...

    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...

    THE RIGHT PATH: (c) 2015 Edward York I have

Frustration, anger, fear,
Failure…

Below my fingertips
But stop
Lo and Behold

He loves you
Stop. 
He. Loves. You. 
Stop!
