    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.

    In the club: You captured my attention,

    Show me how you make a first impression. Take my hand and dance with me for awhile, I'm going to make your head spiral. You get to have me for the night, You better make it right.

    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...

    Look at how the stars shine

    so bright, I could stare at them all night, And dream of a love that seems so right, Maybe all my dreams will become reality tonight. I see my future in the sky, It's kinda cloudy and I wonder why, But life seems perfect in your eyes, You're so beautiful I could die. But...

    In Sleepless Hours

    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...

    Deeper Stranger.

    Finally, a moment of quiet,

    everyone has their own limit Away from the negativity, when love turns to insanity But there's no one talking, when I find myself listening Not even a little brevity, or a chance at some clarity Alone with a worn spirit, now, it's too damned quiet

    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...

    I like my bands in business suits,

    I watch them on TV. I'm working out most every day and watching what I eat. They tell me that it's good for me, but I don't even care. I know that it's crazy. I know that it's nowhere. But there is no denying that, it's hip to be square.

    The Winds Of Time
