Love Over PainYou said, "Love ain't love unless it's work."More Like This
I thought love was fireworks
An effortless exploding sky,
I thought love was you and I.
We sparkle faded to the ground
The world in silence looks around
They see our magic why can't you?
"It's too easy" is that true?
Amidst the sound, the heat, the light
the spectrum colors of the night
How could you question if it's right?
"It's only love when there's a fight."
Put down your weapons and surrender
Let's redefine and let's remember
A time when love yielded no scars
After the darkness, only stars
This whole world? It could be ours
And not a single heart would beat in vain
If we could choose our love
over our pain.

The blades being removed
The calming voice of someone new
Who's wrapping bandages around your wounds
Their warming embrace
As they pick you up
And take you away from that blood stained room
Silencesilence shall always be the greatest weapon we hold. In silence we can observe, in silence we can think and plan, silence is our greatest assest, but once the silence is used against us...our minds may fallMore Like This

Between the here
And the now
Sound pounds through cheap
Over the growl of grinding
Faces move in and out
With steady rate
And semi-random flow
Music of an age
One more forgettable age
Here, I am not here
And there, there is here too
Converge and diverge
As I merge with the animal moment
Letting the beat
And rhythm penetrate
Scent from other cement
And espressos of orient
The Poli, Paris,
Some quaint, forgettable
Hole in Indiana...
Here, I am everywhere
Where I once was
And yet still may be
The unresolved divergence
And titillates me

white and filled with morning sun.
Drink the expanse of sky,
for there is the beginning of wisdom.
This life is but a breath,
So breathe it well
And try not to let it catch
Fate of the ThornThere are thornsMore Like This
We carry with us
Once stuck in the flesh
They seep rich poison
Until the breast
Learns to contain them.
And so as with traces
Of asphalt, discarded plastics,
And abandoned powerlines
What is living
In the human heart
Learns to overgrow,
And ultimately transform
The marks that mar it.

This new feeling not my own
Like a light wing of a dragon fly softly passing into me
I feel it all
Coursing in my entirety
Everyone's emotions are now my own
I feel them see them
I can even hear them
This isn't normal
I shouldn't feel this
It is so strong it affects me to the core
Humanity bleeding out it's feelings out to me
Even the animals and nature have their own cry
All the corruption that makes up our twisted greed a reality
I can feel it miles away
Tornado's of emotional cries every where
Screaming from the minds of the lost and unseen
Yet I bear and hear their messages
A world unseen but not to me
I feel all
I absorb it all
This is what humanity feels like?
Rages like volcanoes
Sadness like rivers
Pain of loss as endless like roads
Love and lust confused in puddles and is muddled
Happiness over spilling in cups

Tickling into a steady stream.
I dip my feet in,
For only a moment.
And am swept off anyway.
Wasting the moments,
along this current.
Until I am set upon those sands.
I lay there,
thinking of you,
as the sun warms my skin.
There a many things,
that wash up in the waves of time.
Much debris that can clutter the shore.
But they do not concern me,
not while I have you in mind.
Content in thoughts of you,
and our love together.
The happiness you bring,
Puts a smile on my face.
And I know,
we can handle anything and all.
Sighing as the water gently caresses,
I wait for your return.
So that I may tell you what you mean,
my present, future, and all.
So as the sun now sets beyond,
and time continues on,
I wait to let you know,
how lucky I am to have found you,
and how deep my love has grown.

'Ner been so personal and fulfilling.
Ice, or this glacial storm, has become the center-
The center of my very existence.
His glacial storm has become my everything.
Raging within my heart,
Making me feel alive,
Entirely, utterly, alive.
Never have I ever been
so proud and confident in another,
Yet so terrified on their behalf.
This storm settles gently upon me,
Setting the scape a soft blue,
Beautiful but sometimes
to fully grasp.
Like glass shattering,
raining liquid color into my life.
His love consumes me,
his icy eyes the center
Of this beautiful storm.
