    For My Girlfriend

    Sometimes I focus on everything bad, Everything that's got me thinking of throwing the towel in, Makes me want to jump off a platform of any kind. Sometimes we meet somebody that takes away the will to jump, And I guess I'm just that lucky, 'Cause I met you. So now I'm...

    The Imprint

    A paw fits into another like a jigsaw fits together. Bonded with the force of love, It's unbreakable, invincible and unconditional. They join at the heart, In a world of insanity, Where the only thing that exsists is the love between them. A full moon glows and the stars twinkle...

    I Am

    I am a fierce wind and a gentle breeze,A roaring of thunder, a whisper in the trees.Cold as ice, and a red, fiery flame,A drought, a desert, and a torrent of rain.A calm, quiet lake, with water serene,Violent ocean waves crashing, a nightmare, a sweet dream.I am a fighter...

    Opinions on my poem? You see kids walking

    around, With there heads down, Scared of looking up, Afraid of people getting to closeup, Even their own shadow scares them away, These kids don't want to be astray, They just want to change their way, But for now where they are, is where they will stay, Because the shadows...

    Romance In a Hopeless World

    And with the world outside So black and lifeless. We do nothing but watch As life passes us by. Content in each others arms, We lie. Not a word is whispered, As your lips meet mine.

    Blur In Her Fathers Eyes

    Memories dim in, Flashes of another steps forward, No image of daughter, A image of horror, Her mother. Anger so vile, Fill with the poison, Dark hate like the demon fills those one happy eyes, Now each mark of blue, Now each mark of black. No daughter is there, No smiles...

    You'll never know the affect of your disappearing act, What you did was wrong and that's a fact. You left me barren and confused, Feeling like I messed up instead of you. This seems to be typical with guys of your kind, To use a girl and **** with her mind.
