Find The DreamSearch deep within your heart, deep into the darkness where faded dreams are kept. Don't give up; the one you are looking for is there somewhere. When you find it, hiding in a corner weeping at lost years, don't leave it there; it's scared and hates the darkness. Lift it gently into the light and watch it transform into a brighter wiser dream than it once was.Find The Dream in Philosophical More Like This

Angel TearsImagine a raindrop is an angel's tearAngel Tears in Free Verse More Like This
Falling from heaven on Gaia's mortal fear
Weeping in unity their children's lost soul
Heaven's pure spirit evil now doth control
Eden of rapture consumed by time's flow
A lost utopia where gluttony doth grow.
Alluring serpent's lair humans covet the bait
Devourer of truth so poisoned with hate
Innocence now lost in maelstrom of desire
Purity long blackened by greed's hungry fire
The spirit debased evil darkens the heart
The nefarious abductor tears the soul apart
The moment approaches the farmer shall reap
Love now eternal for faithful lost sheep
Gnashing of teeth those left in despair
Time now elapsed for repentance and prayer
Renounce the darkness and take gentle heed
Embrace the truth be the Lamb's seed

Guided By One Whose Words They Believe
Not Seeing The Venom That Flowed To Deceive
The Only Hope Now Is To Pray To The Light
To Guide Them Back To All That Is Right.

Inevitable beautyThe fingers on my hands grow numbInevitable beauty in Free Verse More Like This
I can’t avoid it; my time has come
This inevitable journey toward the light
Oh do I wish it were out of sight
I’ve pulled the levers, turned the knobs
But nothing helps, not even my sobs
The world turns upside down; I can see the end
As if it were a common clothing trend
Knowing my fate I grab my wallet
Looking inside I find my beautiful Scarlet
Her smile warps and twists me, no regrets
My heart is going to burst through the beauty of the sunset
Despite how tragic everything is, I can’t help but laugh
My life has been cut in half
My body lifts from the seat, I hover smiling inside
I see the blue earth; I close my eyes and let out my last sigh
All at once everything is still; time has stopped
I am a suicidal raindrop
I hear something, someone whispering to me
‘Open your eyes, and see the beauty’

time wears memory,

and i guess you wouldn't remember
if i ever made you happy.
i hope i did,

often i'm not sure if i make myself happy,
but i know what it feels like.
and i guess you don't mind taking over
and crawling under my skin,
and reminding me that you exist,
and turning up when i sleep,
and pretending we could be like that
it's a bit disheartening when you do that.
and i guess i don't want to fee
'Canary'. Rough Draft. IntroductionA darkening gray patch of sky laced with thin whirls of clouds hangs over the pale yellow, quiet house. It stands strong, and solitary, with doors and windows locked up tight, sealing out the picturesque neighborhood. This house is immaculate with touches of care and detail, as if watched over by a gentle ghost: behind the clear windows hang simple white curtains, embroidered in the corners; a ring of moist earth encircles the carnations sprouting from each window box, though the wet and wrinkled petals tucked inside each bud are too weak yet to blossom. The lawn is tidily trimmed, though moss still grows in patches on the shingles. As the evening darkens, the street light casts a yellow light down the front path, where lonely footsteps click against the stone. The young, thin-framed woman who unlocks the door carries many thoughts in her head, but none at all escape from her mouth. Aside from a sigh that slips into the night, all other expression is hidden behind the walls,'Canary'. Rough Draft. Introduction in Short Stories More Like This
