    In Sleepless Hours

    In nighttime's sleepless hours my reverie of you takes hold I place a kiss so gentle as not to stir a sleeping baby on the face that fills my waking hours and haunts my dreams You alone are my Northern lights, evoking a rainbow of cascading colours, Plumes of light that fill the...

    It's all here contained within the sharp

    Time is the healer of a bleeding heart,

    Love is the thing that keeps it from falling apart, The mind is an intelligent tool Without it a man is no more then a ignorant fool, I grow to strive and teach my brain, Days get hard and it can be quite a pain, However I never wish to be plain, My soul is impure by...

    what passes as poetry?

words that a confused teenager scribbles into their lit textbook.
words that a social worker whispers to her sick wife. a description of how heavy my chest felt when our song came on.
a description of how the violent tide...

    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...

    CRAYON ON THE WALL (c) 2015 by Edward York My

    memories never fail to flow, Back to when you were small; To toys scattered on the floor, And crayon on the wall. I remembered all the questions asked, On trips with just us two, Like why is the water wet, And why the sky is blue. Those times we had were simple times, Your...

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    I am the one, that we all are.

    A shining product of a fallen star. Not to be mistaken as the one we seek, A reflection of him, that tends the weak. Brought to see with Omniscient power. Activation within, the lotus flower. Peace of mind, and piece of it all. Piece of Universe, Never to fall.

    The Hello To My Good-bye The world,

    BEHIND THE WHEEL (c) 2015 Edward York Driving

    down the interstate, White lines are passing by. The darkness begins to fade away, As orange fills up the sky. The hours spent behind the wheel, Begin to take their toll. Windshield wipers slapping time, To classic rock n’ roll. The water on the pavement, Splashes underneath...

    Deeper Stranger.

    If this is who I am, what am I to be?

    Is it truly true that I am limited by me? If I could paint a picture without saying it 'twas I, where would I dare put myself in days not yet passed by? What medium would I use, a pencil or a pen? What of marks I did not mean, what would I do then? Do I leave it all to chance...

    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.
