    Coming To Terms With A Facet Of Human Nature.

    It’s so very odd hearing the people in the room next to me chattering. These strangers speaking as if they were old friends, as if a connection of some odd kind actually existed between them. They chortle and chuckle, smile and smirk, how very odd indeed! They offer up the...

    How exquisitely beautiful is the autumn treeIn

    it's dying..Like a love that seems to endYet, perhaps only fading into dormancy.Just as that tree shall burst forth into lifeon some warm spring day.Perhaps that love also never quite dies,But is lying in quietude, stillness..Waiting to be reignited in some brilliant ray of...

    The silence is deafening.

    The darkness surrounds me. Alone. Scared. Anxious. Empty. Where are you? You disappeared. Hands reaching for you. Arms empty. Nothing to give... Nothing but me. My world is empty without you. I Love You

    Conflict "I wish I'd never met you" screams

    More than a Dance

    Who watched them? Only the birds glanced upon them not knowing what they saw. On the soft morning air music drifted quietly into the peace of their still place. Their place, a spot by his river. Trees stood  like still sentinels, surrounding the lovers. Sunshine, gentle, not...

    I was a dreamer in a past life,

    I was a killer in another. I was a psychopathic madman, And an angry tyrant mother. I am a prisoner of time, I am a mass of contradictions. I am the writer of lies, And deceptive truthful fictions.

    I write, certainly. The problem is that what I write disgusts me. Disgust is not a strong enough word, actually, more like I loathe the words on the page with every fiber of my being. I look down at a poem I have written and there are a thousand tiny little voices telling me...

    I usually do my writing in an outside

    perspective. Even if the situations are my own, I will write them in 3rd person. It's easier for me to write things outside myself in a less personal way. It creates a degree of separation that makes it more comfortable for me to write it all down. Today I'm not going to do that...
