wasting time...they all tell me i'm just wasting my time
throwing my pearls before the swine
tell me i'm gonna be pushed away
you'll break me down and turn around
tell me not to even try lest i fall and break
that you're just waiting for your chance
to reach inside, take all of me, leaving nothing behind.
i say they're blind, i'll never push you away
they'll never see what i find in you that makes me want to stay
Hello Lonely...It's lonely nights like theseHello Lonely...6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That I'm in my bed
Wrapped up in my blankets
Cuddling with my teddy bear
And I wish that it was you.
That sweet love song
We like to sing
Playing in my headphones
And I try to keep
The tears from falling.
I know you wouldn't want me to be sad...
But I'm so lonely tonight...
And maybe, just maybe
If I imagine hard enough I can feel...
Your arms wrapped about me
Your warm breath on my skin
And your heartbeat next to mine.

intersections of lives
and crossing of lines
can't escape the fate
for its what you've made
and everything calls you back

need someone to pick me up, don't let me fall
gather the shards of my heart that i've left behind

passion and painPassion is now but strife just around the cornerpassion and pain6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Slinking closer, the tendrils of its presence precede it
The building tension peaks and I have to wonder
If the cataclysm of pain isn't the same as passion.
Tears, tears of anger dripping down my face
The rain of sweet love that's become twisted
Blood, the blue blood that flows red
That bleeds heavy and hot for you
Sweetest touches, slowly, lingering
Whispers of softness
Tearing through me, ripping me apart
Breaking my heart.

With a rare, soft, quietly spoken word of love
Agony, pain, depression, death and sadness
Are the voices of your world
You spin your webs and crooked lies
That I don't believe and can see behind
What they really are and pretend to be
Nothing more than a mask...a facade
To keep you safe from the hurt and pain
Duck around the walls to glimpse your soul
That part of it that you can't help but let me see
Don't push me away, loving you is where I want to be.

this is the plain of the shadow of death
catch your breath, hold the sight
keep it close, here in your mind's eye
push on ahead, never looking back
you fight to live and live for the fight
pick this up and run, you're the only ones
keep driving on, fight this thing until you've won
standing together, never backing down
this is the end and here we go now
Our Farewell...A handful of photographsOur Farewell...6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A memory of a smile
A resounding laugh that lingers
An embrace of warmth and love
A dream of a different ending
A wish of happier times
A hope of another meeting
A loss of your beautiful life
A week of crying myself to sleep
A month or two or more of numbness
A year of missing you
And there are more yet to come
I never thought it could happen,
That that day would come so soon,
That I'd never get to say goodbye
And I am missing you,
For this is our final farewell.

breath of a sigh
flutter of a kiss
whisper of love

Suddenly, you are entranced.
Assaulting your senses,
Amazingly, here is the end.
Insanity, of course.
Affecting your emotions,
Lives played out on a page.
Isn't tragedy just a fatal comedy of errors?

the tendrils of sickly yellow light
wrap their fingers around consciousness
squeezing out the dregs of last emotions
trapped in the walls of the mind, never to escape
a presence of something taking over
its malevolent designs still unknown
wanting to break down, take over, control, and own
tears can't fall, stifled by terror and fear
choking on bitter bile that threatens to rise
dominated by horror, assaulted by strain
try to cast away the inner ghosts that ensnare
take captive every living thought and soul
a mind warped by tension and pain
beware the story-book wolves...
