    I listened as you talked with God today I heard

    the many things you had to say How you prayed with all your heart When your life was torn apart As you stumbled in the dark along the way I saw you cry the tears of Bethlehem I heard you sing a haunting requiem But you still did not know why Each and every man must die Or if...

    Mosaic

    Broken pieces, shattered all around We heard the sound, when it all hit the ground Torn pages, in the book of my life In the pain and strife, seems like a losing fight Empty spaces, covered in clutter My heart skips paces, and my words come in stutters I see the places, where the...

    Her Death Brought Her Life

    She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...

    Our EP Gesture Dance

    Waking up in the morning, another day dawns, I rush to my computer, I flip the cold box on. As it's familiar sounds start, Time to pour a cup, I rush back to sign on, To see if he's already up. The "Sign In" is complete, Today begins anew, I gesture "Good Morning...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    April’s Shower We all watched

    as they dragged her away. Sat stunned with fingers through the cage…as they dragged her away. Raced tears down by-standing faces…as they dragged her away. Closed ears from silent screams…as they dragged her away. We all watched…as they dragged her away.

    It won't be magic. He still cries about the one

    She Lies Easy

    Wednesday Morning I sat.

    A reluctant witness, to a rare desert fog. Watched a watery sun have his way with her. She seemed submissive. Leaving only tears on a bystanding landscape. I do guess, soon enough, there will be nothing left of her. I sat…and did nothing.

    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...

    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...

    What do you think about

    when you can't sleep. It seems like you want to think of everything all at once. Your plans, your goals, your past, your debt, what will you have for lunch tomorrow. When I was growing up, I remember being able to just be a kid. Nothing on my mind, just living for the next few...

    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...

    BEHIND THE WHEEL (c) 2015 Edward York Driving

    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.

    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...
