    I wrote this poem in honor of Leonard Nimoy's

    passing, may he rest in peace. For those who may not know who that is, he played Spock in Star Trek. There was a man He told me to be logical And so I studied There was a man He showed me what it means to be selfless And so I did my best to be like him There was a man he...

    Dancing In The Rains Of Chance

    As I lay back down to sleep to dream of nature's virtue, sweet to dream of her within my mind, to dream of once upon a time to dream the dream of happy ever afters to dream once more of nature's laughter to know it teases, taunting, pleasing and in it's recourse I lay...

    The darkness around me Is

    now all that I know, For the light I once followed Left me long ago. The happiness faded, Replaced with despair, And all that I'd once seen Was no longer there. I search to retrieve it, Yet my efforts in vain. Of my once guiding light, Only shadows remain.

    The Winds Of Time

    The winds of time erode away The memories of our past, Leaving us with shadowy thoughts That disappear too fast. And so we cling with all our might And try to hold them near, All the things for which we care, And those that we hold dear. No matter how much we try to cling...

    She Lies Easy

    AGE : I remember times

    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...

    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.

    I guess its a story that will never be told,

    I guess it means nothing to anyone really, yet in my heart this story, maps out my entire world, pretense and nonsense, confusions and delusions, every day I breathed but every day I died.

    Hope is held, hope is found.

    It's within us all, not just laying around. It's there where your heart is and it's behind your eyes. That's why we feel hope can be lost, when one of us cries. Take care of your heart, catch your tears. Then you'll have hope throughout your years.

    I have read at many poetry readings

    and have published a book of poems in the last year... I still fear sharing my work with people. Whether they will hate it, or steal it, or not understand it... So we'll see. I hope to share something at least.

    You banish me from the heavenly sky.

    Left me there willing to die. My wings are broken and soakin with blood. Knowing I wouldn't have Gods heavenly love. Now I'm on earth all alone. Knowing that I'll never coming back home. A fallen angel that made a mistake. Wishing to take back but it was too late.
