    The Poignancy Of Love The majestic beauty of

    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...

    If Only They Spoke ...

    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...

    The Touch Where the tears fall

    and the darkness is within The sadness brings to bear the emotions of things The numbing isolation that lack of touch brings The incomparable sadness, the cool Calm quiet of dreams Deceived within the Devils hands Parting like sheep from the herd The aching surging and 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...

    I hope I'm not sharing too much.

    She Lies Easy

    She lies easy in my arms This dimly moonlit night Her body supple to my charms She moans with such delight I brush her hair back, find her neck And kiss her softly there My lips they trace her gentle curves They make her arch and swear While fingers brush and pinch and...

    feel the nick of you lingering cool as winter's solstice, feel the nick of you like a dagger cold upon the intangible grace of my skin. such a sin it was to love you. And when I am at last ushered into the chambers of sleep, when I am blanketed in that dark array of...

    When I see you, death creeps closer.

    Splinters fill my heart by the thought of your existence. Your voice echoes the reality of all that is wrong with society. I cringe by sight of your grin as you share tales of your life occurrences. Die; away from me.

    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.

    When The Days Are Through And

    when the paddles slash, Against salty waters, Yet the sharks swim quietly through. The dim lights flash, For one last time, And lies divide from truth. And bands collide, In waging war, 'Till kingdoms fall in blue. And they see the Child, In robes of gray, For it is when the...
