    He was a beautiful thing.

    I had fallen into him... Into the midst of his eyes. I wanted the whole of him and not just half. He was a construction of beauty, not yet made but enough to dazzle the eyes of the ever hungry, the curious and the dignified beings who walked around making covenants to themselves...

    I don't normally post my poetry on here,

    but this one was too personal to share with my friends, and I had to show someone. Enchanted ----------- Elicited by music Accompanied by sadness This longing, this madness Shall surely rend my soul At least, that's what I said So very long ago And now, untangled I Emerge...

    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...

    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...

    What no one wants to talk about,

    If you leave it, it'll go away The thing that's just unspeakable A word no one wants to say But it's something you can't ignore You can't leave it for another day And if you do, it continues, unrelenting, And on your shoulders their pain will lay You can pretend that you don't...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
