    Life has many people,

    no two are the same Some walk tall, some walk proud, some just hang their head in shame Many dwell in anger, and some are full of hate Some grab life by the horns, some just sit around and wait People often judge the ones that are different from the rest I can only wish on...

    I exist on the edge of your lips As a ghost of

    a kiss As a veil in your thoughts and dreams Image of my red lips and red hair Is what you remember But no life is behind those thin eyes While the real ones gleamed that colour Like the rest of me Silences, fragmented Shards tearing us apart Or perhaps we were always torn...

    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.

    The Hello To My Good-bye The world,

    so beautiful yet so cruel, so peaceful but full of raging wars. Every smile is led by a frown. In the darkness I see it. I see the peace. But when night turns to day. I’m just another person born upon a grave. Are we not all bid a due with the warm welcome of hello when we...

    as if the dawnCast beads of dew upon her lipsAnd every sweet petal of sense I ownLies scattered at her fingertips,The pages of the map are tornFrom reason, veiled in lust's eclipseAs my hands caress her, like the gentle breezeOf tranquil climates, I kiss the skinOf her silken...

    You lay with me in the wildflower meadowBeside

    a serenading streamIn a tapestry bound by threads of fancy,A tangled weave of tangled dreams.The tall grass, swept by gentle rhythmStirred by an impulsive kiss,Became the whisper of a sighResponsive to my hand's caressAnd, as we lay, my eyes were drawnAbove to cloudless phthalo...

    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...

    Grotesquely Beautiful: The shine in your

    face, shows a different side of beauty. Is the the way it reflects, or am I blind to see? The males see your body, I see your eyes. They only see skin, and I see a shine. There's a different side, behind your smile. It isn't really beauty, it's truly a nightmare. I'm too...

    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...

    Swirls... You leave playful little circles on

    my spine, and my body curls. With deliberate strokes, your adoration for me unfurls. In the dimness, the beads of sweat lay like melted pearls. When goodbyes are said at twilight, reality itself, at our consciousness, hurls.

    for years, but when I was writing all the time, I had some gems that I will share as soon as I dig my poem book out of storage some day. Who knows, maybe I'll begin writing again too.
