Between the Lines
Those of us who suffer, see the 
colours in between.
The subtle shades of violet, the
burn of acid green.
It's not just grey and shades of
black.
It's the colours never seen, for 
us the majestic rainbow is not just,
Red, orange yellow, blue, indigo, 
violet and green.
For us, it's the subtle nuance, of all
the colours in between.

A Father's Days
fathers need more than one day
to combine Legion's voices
into a semblance
of the one they once had
to conduct its apology
to wives and to widows
of the world
for making them mothers
and fathers need more
than the remaining year
to unload the age
from their bodies
into not-wives and lovers
the comfort and recharge
that makes them the men
their children will soon forget
now i stare into a distant
and starless corner
your wrinkle in my reflection
i drop a stone in it
that's yet to hit bottom
and wonder how i'll be remembered

Lutte contre le chaos
Les démons me lacèrent
Impossible que je les enterre
Ces petits diables sont ma création
Le reflet de moi en obscur
Quand je devrais faire une cure
Pour conserver mes relations
La réalité c’est qu’il n’y a pas de choix
Pas d’autre option
J’essaye de vivre avec la déception
De ce que j’ai raté autrefois
Je lutte les poings serrés
Je résiste pour ne pas devenir tarée
J’avance pour reconstruire
Pourtant c’est simple de tout lâcher et détruire
Il faut me croire
Je ne veux pas vous décevoir

I'm not as lonely anymore
Laying around,
Talking to myself,
Realizing feelings I've never felt
Such a beautiful Sunday
I'm kneeling; keeling over these cards I've been dealt
I'm killing all these whispers I felt
Cause
Im broke but I've never been wealthier
I'm broken but I've never been healthier
I'm not as lonely anymore,
Birds in the sky, ducks in the pond
I'm surrounded by everyone
Game on, teach me your ways
Make today a beautiful Sunday,
I think today i'll put down the bottle,
Ease up on the throttle
Take it slow
Like a snail after the rain
Coming out the shell today,
Expecting your letter in the mail someday
Those words like hieroglyphics
I'll be your Indy and I am jonesing for you
You'll be my Fenti and I'll be beauty for you
We'll mend these wounds like surgical glue
No tears like I'm baby shampoo
No fears, like I'm guided by you
No steers like I'm riding bareback to you
No saddle because I'm a cowboy for you
No spurs because I'm stirred by you
Such a beautiful Sunday
I'm in some daze thanks to you

i fear it true
we two are on a bed of hay
i don't know what to say
then
the wind comes to the rescue
and my mind is blown away
now
my seeds my dust my nothing
all the cosmos overlay
lost
forever is heavy a word
i'd use it for today
.
our hands are linked
our lines combine
our hearts are synched
our weights
our fates
our time
it all feels mine
to give to you
for I'm in love

Into the Rock
I feel the world
creeping eating alive
but I sink down
through the strata
farther below by something
more willful than gravity
like your grip
has slipped I’m falling
into earthen wounds
the Mariana Trench and
limestone cenotes
slow as the gaping
geologic time scale

My heart is a secret garden
My heart is a secret garden
And my walls are very high
I try to protect the flowers
Fragile as they still are
Removing all the weeds
Make sure no one
Breaks down those walls
And tramples those flowers
As I am patiently waiting
For you to find the courage
To climb over those walls
Gentle, and carefully
And provide the light
To help them grow and bloom

Looking back in eternity
If there is such a thing as looking back once those who are Faithful to Christ are in eternity, I bet this is what we will realize.
"The plan of God showed us what the End-Product is supposed to look like, and the exact measurements. Measurements of the New Jerusalem, the New Earth and the New Heaven, and the amount of people who chose - despite their circumstances - to live for Christ as He showed us. And now we behold in great awe just how detailed, how complex and how vast God's plan has been, and how accurately He has executed it. O! how greater would it have been if all were saved; but they saw God's plan and wished not to be part of that. The Faithful, those whom God calls His children, tried their best - yes even God did - but some were too stubborn to receive correction and as at the start of Days so Pride made them tumble and they realized too late their folly.
Praise be to our Father, our loving God, that His plans were not subject to what others wished, or none would have be

Old quotes today
Όταν προσαρμόζεις παλιά ρητά στο σήμερα
και καταλήγεις σε κάτι παράξενο ή αφηρημένο
μην ανησυχείς.
Έτσι δείχνει η αλήθεια μέσα σε έναν ψεύτικο κόσμο.
When you adjust old quotes to today
and you end up with something weird or abstract
don't worry.
This is how truth looks inside a false world.

Path Of Flames - 14. My Perfect Girl
People are like cranking out cigarettes.
They never come out the same.
But in like 6 or 7 cigarettes there's one similar to it.
Some are tight, others are loose.
Some are packed too tight, and others too loose everything falls out.
A perfect cigarette is like my perfect girl.
Empty but impossible to quit so I can fit.
A breath of fresh air and good smelling hair.
Her pretty voice and a gentle touch lets me know she cares.
My perfect girl, would mean the world.
Not cancer.

Das Vergehen der Zeit (Haiku)
warum vergeht zeit
ein konstrukt sondergleichen
wir sind nur menschen

die zeit strömt und steht
ein gleichmäßiges schauspiel
von menschen missbraucht

unzähmbare zeit

My inspiration
I always
Said
You were
Better than me
Despite you said
The opposite
But
You went to the university
And I had to give up
You found jobs
When I lost mine
Your life
Is better
Than mine
But
I´m not jealous
Not an inch
In fact
I want to be like you
I admire you
You are my banner
My inspiration
My brother

Mourning Corrupted Innocence
When anything dies there is a period of mourning. The stages are long, brutal, especially the sorrow and anger.
When you think the worst is over, something reminds you that you'll never feel that type of peace or love again. You mustn't fight this reality. It only makes the pain worse. No matter how hard you try to hold the pieces together they will always shatter once broken. 
Even the pieces have cracks forming until they turn into dust and fades with the night wind.
To become hollow as roots start to grow to fill the void, sparking new flames against rough walls. Creating a new masterpiece, one that many will not understand, nor will they try to. 
This can be hurtful and a lonely place to be in. Most don't want to understand corrupted innocence or even look at it. It's a beautiful yet hard truth to swallow, even scary for some. But so much beauty comes from this corruption.
So much inspiration and creation can be born, if one is willing to embrace it. But ev
