    Will To Fight

    Another night has come and gone and here I sit all alone wondering what the hell I did wrong Trying to pick myself up and carry on Though it's tough when you have been beaten up by life Lost your will to fight Trying not to listen to the voices in your head Fighting against the...

    MY LOVE FOR YOU My love

    for you just keeps growing, With every day that has past. I know for sure my love for you, Is the kind of love that last. I see your face when I first wake, And again when I fall to sleep. Your image is one that I will cherish, It is one that I can keep. My body aches in...

    Stalking

    It never rightfully belonged to me But I wanted it nonetheless, So when you were distracted and couldn’t see I took it, I confess. I thought that it might take a while For you to realize your mistake, And though I felt guilty in my guile I held it close, for love’s sake...

    THE BALLAD OF TIMMY THE TROLL Timmy the troll

    When you lay in bed, Frustration running through your head, You want to reach out and touch, This is all way too much My mind would not have such a fight, ...If my girl was not so far away tonight ♥

    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...

    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...

    True Blue Blue, blue,

    blue, I love the color blue. It’s the color of my shoe, When it was really new. And when I think of you I see the color blue. Your eyes play peek-a-boo When you come into view. You took me to the zoo To see the caribou And silly looking gnu. That night at my curfew I leaned in...

    The Winds Of Time

    He stands on a barren hilltop; Snow falling on

    churned ground, Salted, sown with ashes. Sweat sits upon his brow; A moment of reverie, Spent among the silence. Still crows gaze from their perch; Seem by none, They can see all.
