    (For a while) Let me barrow your warmth.

    And for a while I can get away from this awful cold. So I grasp your hand And press it with mine. And for a while, I feel alive. And for a while, I feel warm inside. And for a while, I don't have the need to cry. And for a while, I don't wanna say good-bye. So lent me...

    Burning through a thousand lives.

    Tracking through the jungles I found a trace. Yet the permanence of a sweet nothing evades me.

    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...

    The Thing Once beneath a sinking sun,

    With shadows long and wide, The forest gave to me a gift, That has never left my side. Years hence I still recall, The Jasmine and piney smell, That still reminds me oft again, Of what it is I tell. Near a craggy moss filled stump, I jolted with a scare, For standing nay 10...

    This poem was for my grandson.

    I wrote it after he died to help with the grief. I was at the nadir of my life god heard my prayer it seems For late last night He answered Jesus brought you to my dreams I saw Him coming And I cried for release I begged Him 'take me with you' He smiled at me and said 'Be at...

    "I drew a picture for you,

    dad! It's a portrait of your face!" I knew it was rather lame and bad... But I hope he liked it anyways. "I wrote a song for you, mom! It's a tune about your smile!" I knew it wouldn't last too long... But I made her happy for a while. "I bought a necklace for you, dear! It...

    My Poem

    If you really wanna hear me scream, Then cover me in gasoline, Set me alight with the match of the dead, Watch as the flames burn a hole in my head. Come smell my weeping heart, Lift it high and tear it apart, For nothing can hurt as much, As not feeling your tender...

    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.

    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...

    "Beating regret" Beating heart within my chest.

    How much longer can you exist? With only blood to keep you alive. How much longer until you die? With lack of love You should have dried. And though you keep me alive It's you! who has caused me to lose my mind. Why did you have to ever exist?! And show me what heartache is...

    I know how the world works,

    I’ve known it for years, Without all the heartbreak, Or shedding of tears, The world is cruel, And it never let’s you up, After you’ve been knocked down, And you’re ready to give in, It’ll leave you to drown, The world is like a child, It uses and discards, You are a...

    Lost Confidence Cycles repeating must learn to

    break. Before they realise I'm but a fake. Cover my tracks with knowledge and a smile. That'll hold'em back for a while. Pushed to a corner nowhere to run. Work is chore no longer with fun. Patterns in pattern repeating real fast. Knowing the next won't be the last. Bottleling...

    I gave my love.  It was too much.

      And so my pieces March Back to their tiny boxes.  Soul fragments  Awaiting a time when  They will be treasured, Not feared.

    Why can't it be I? It's never great How You

    want to demonstrate How much you hold inside But! You feel the butterflies And watch them fly And you wish you never tried It's never great How you watch and wait For someone to notice you are alive And though you try to lie You wonder why Why can't it be I.
