    This is a song that I wrote about my father.

    I have all of our memories, the good ones haunt me too.Thinking of where you are now just stabs me right on through.Today marks the day that you've been gone 11 years.And I'm here to say that I've survived your loss.And I could never forget that there were always two of you.This...

    A moment of pure bliss After the passion

    builds As right and wrong fade away Breaths taken and stolen The pleasure takes control Leaving senses on fire Not a thought or care Only the ecstasy of being Driving each to release The need for satisfaction And lost along the way To a moment of pure bliss

    In The Gloam

       In the gloam deep in the forest where the faeries sleep There is one who knows She knows the full measure of you; the flame your smile kindles The ache your brown eyes afford with every stroke And the wake you leave in your leaving. In the gloam deep in the forest where the...

    A Sunny Day In Thalamus

    I'm sick, and it's a pretty little illness A prefrontal bacteria that eats away my willingness To live within the social parenthesis I'm twisted, sick from this political annilingus. The jacket that I'm wearing will define my disorder I'm due to see a professional Visceral...

    Scary Wears Boots Dance in the darkness.

    So alive amid dying light, Embraced by the night, Illuminate with unseen bliss. The earth is your canvas. Scary, yet I’ve no fear. From afar I see slow dancing: On haunted soil, frolicking In ragged dress with messy hair, Awkward steps oh, so dear. Remove your cozy boots...

    U send a chill down my bare legs,

    Inside my heart begins to quicken. My body and soul start to beg, Than your tongue explores my hard budded breast licking. Ur lips soft, warm, inviting, U trace my face, forehead, eyelids and jaw. Everything else has gone away, My body has lost the ability to fight, I'm in...

    In Sleepless Hours

    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 wrote this for my lover: Oceans When I met

    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    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...

    in 4/4 time. With the lonely girl dressed in fury Who killed the chorus with a line. And every time I have it I wake up feeling numb Like everything familiar Was a song for me she sung. I try and grasp to memories Of this dream and others to But these, my hands have atrophied...

    Moonlight over the Aegean The waves slosh

    Deeper Stranger.

    Tear drops: Each drop of sorrow Fills my eye to

    the brim I try to hold back Yet they still flow down my cheeks I can't hide What I'm feeling inside The anger, the frustration The sadness, the despair It feels as though I'm hurt more than I love But in the end That's what we are Alone Like the tears drops In my eyes
