    I Never Opened My Eyes

    Close the door Invade me I never opened my eyes I don't really care anymore Rob me of my soul Rape me with your eyes Transcend through time I never opened my eyes You'll whisper soft dark sweet lyrics in my ear that are as black as night and spread across eagles' wings But I...

    Fly Away...

    So, sometimes I get ideas in my head for poems. I mostly write lyrics, but occassionally an idea will pop into my head so I will write it down. This isn't very good, and I will probably adapt it, but I thought I would get it down whilst it was still fresh in my mind and edit it...

    Lost Sleep

    I now cannot sleep unless you are there to hold, I now cannot dream of silver or of gold, I wait for my dreams to fold as they crash into every one else I know, I grow tired I grow so old, for all of this you never show Hidden away like a shadow of love, these are the...

    For Amber (a Beautiful Girl In A Difficult World).
