    In Sleepless Hours

    In nighttime's sleepless hours my reverie of you takes hold I place a kiss so gentle as not to stir a sleeping baby on the face that fills my waking hours and haunts my dreams You alone are my Northern lights, evoking a rainbow of cascading colours, Plumes of light that fill the...

    This is a city, a city that's crying Crying

    for freedom, crying for change A city that sleeps both day and night City of liars, a city that tries to control your mind. Home of the gods, this place was once heaven People were friendly and people were kind Smiles were the greetings and heart was the place for you to stay...

    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...

    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...

    Pitiful is the king, not bold,

    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...

    Inspiration

    I sat alone And tried to think, Of words so grand, To put in ink. The words came slow, And uninspired. No cutesy rhymes, No expressed desire. No lover’s song, No wrong to right., No erotic rhyme, To fill the night. Inspiration, I could not find...

    You have cried when you were alone. Some cried for freedom, some cried for life, Some cried for love and some cried for wife. This is not the first time you have laughed, This is not the last time you will cry. You have lived and laughed and cried before, But you still don't...

    parent is immeasurable. So much so, that it could be said that a child is the personification of a parent’s love. The love is so strong, that should it be taken, we may not survive without it… A love so strong that, should it be lost, so too would a part of our very soul...
