    You can keep your flowers Your rings made out

    of gold Your pretty diamond necklaces And, your silk and satin robes. Please don't tell me your " I'm sorry's" They don't mean much to me!! They are just empty words said after what you really spoke to me.

    please tell me what you think-- I am the night,

    I am the Day, You hear my call from far away, When I speak it reaches and touches your soul, When I gaze into your eyes, My wolf eyes can see through you, Your secrets, deep, dark, so full of life, Yet they can calm any painful pain of mine or yours, The spirit o? the...

    The sky is dark, and stars are bright,

    All is quiet and no one is around.It's almost silent, there is no one to talk to in the Night.I breath slowly and deeply, and enjoy the fresh air,I walk and observe nature and become aware.Aware that there is more to nature than what meets the Eye.As I take another deep breath...

    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...

    Darling, there will be those

    who will try to calm your thunder-heart. I say give 'em a taste of a storm and see who stays. The ones who have seen the rainbow between your raindrops are the keepers. They're the ones who aren't afraid to get paralyzed by lightening because they already know the painstaking...

    I held my baby in my arms,

    But never heard him breathe. I took his tiny hand in mine, But knew he had to leave. I saw him enter this cruel world, But never saw him grow. I'll never see his face again, It's so sad to watch him go.

    Actually, I copied it off an email.

    I met a girl in the park the other evening. There was an instant spark between us and she fell at my feet. As we laid there making love, I thought---- "These tasers are well worth the money."

    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...

    Born in form divided pure,

    Man shapes as one undone. From his truth we so lure, To sanity’s lies, her son. What agony must endure, He that purpose does shun. In vanity thus conjure, A pretension to be won.

    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.
