  • The Fading Masquerade

    A flower without water Is clearly going to die No matter how much trouble Tears will not fall from my eyes The petals of the bloom are bruised The flower is forgotten She is left quite alone The colors there are haunted No matter how hard I press, or h...

  • The Unhonourable Art of Stealing:

    I have said it before and will say it again, It is all in the breathing. The calmness. Though your body tingles and your heart beats, So fast. You must be slow and silent. Walk as though you own the place, You only make noise when you try not to. When ...

  • What Am I?

    Air rushes past as you breathe in Then out and away, caressing your skin. I’ll always be first to know what you say I’ll always be first, your tongue to obey. I can convey laughter or languish. I can conduct your angst and your anguish. Allow me to...

  • Holding Back

    So much tension. So much pain. I feel so much for you, Why don’t you feel the same? All this time, It was going so well, Suddenly reality hits, And now I want to yell… Not at you, But at the world, For tricking me yet again, I hate how it un...

  • Live Your Lyrics

    Bop your head, Tap your feet, Follow along, Get up out of your seat. Life is a journey, Life is a song. Play the right music, Always strum along. Compose a symphony, Play it all solo. It’s your time to thrive, Not become a hobo. It’s all an experim...

  • Lucky You, Unlucky Me

    You win the lottery, I find a penny. You run out of ideas, I’ve got many. I was the best for you, You seemed to be the best for me. I gave you my heart, What you returned was infested with fleas. You had it all, I thought I did too. But now it seems ...

  • Siren Song

    Her song was the object that drew him in, Despite the protests of his fellow men; “Don’t fall victim,” they cried, trying to save, But to her voice he was already slave. Beauty was bait for her ravenous trap, One in which ever more me...

  • Snowfall [a poem]

    Tiny flakes flit hesitantly to the hoary earth, fearful of its cold reaction. Would it accept its presence? Was the time right? The earth, graying at the roots, looks to the heavens, sighs heavily. “I’ve had a long day, I need the rest. Com...

  • Want vs Need [poem]

    I want to write. I need to write. It’s a desire that goes down deep into my core, a desire that cannot be topped by anything else in this world. I want to write. I want to feel the pen under my hand, moving in its rhythm with the world. I need to...

  • WAR Files

    Dread grew in the room as the Overlord of Time walked in, eyes filled with ancient wisdom and rancor. Be seated, his ghostly voice demanded. Sitting in near terror, we waited for the Master to give us our orders. Today, the topic is War. I gathered all...

  • Measure of Misery

    Can you see my sorrow? How do you measure misery? Is it the dreams, once had Now forced into razor-sharp Shades, the shadows of my aspirations? Is it the memories, faithfully observed To the point of outright worship? Is this utter perversion of God Th...

  • You

    It’s the butterflies that I still get, the way you make me simply forget, everything that was ever wrong. These are some reasons I’ve loved you so long. There’s also the easy way you make me smile, and feel so much better than i have ...

  • Count

    Lady one was dressed in red. She fell down and split her head. Lady two was dressed in blue. She went down without a clue. Lady three was dressed in green. She deserved it ‘cause she’s mean. Lady four was dressed in yellow. She laid down wi...

  • Mutual Friends

    Comfortable, and yet, so shy, The two of them appear. I have watched my two close friends Flirt for almost a year. Fleeting glances, inside jokes, Normally wouldn’t mix. But they both see potential For something sweetly rich. Dearest friends, hol...

  • Move in. Move out. Move on.

    Move in – the door squeaks. You’ll take more than a peek, For this new home will not want to be outgrown. Darkness turns to light, You were up all night, Finding the secrets which were meant to be kept out of sight. Then the dust settles in...

  • The Gift of Love

    Our lives are so short In comparison to our dreams. We can either drag our feet across the floor Or reach for extremes. Life is never quite definite, So we must always show our passion, For when we are truly gone for good, The love we bestow will ultim...

  • Mailing a Hug [a poem]

    That I could send you a hug through the Internet, attach it to an email to be opened at your leisure. If only I could call you up and hug you through the phone. The phone cords could caress, but it just wouldn’t be the same. In a heartbeat I woul...

  • Looking Back

    As I glance right behind me, The past is sure to follow. Choking on my memories, This truth is hard to swallow. I wake up each morning With an elephant comfortably on my shoulders. For this burden I cannot shake Has left me constantly pushing boulders....

  • Those 5 Seconds

    As I’m walking down the street, She nudges her friend in my direction. But as our eyes meet, It is then we shared that connection. Time slowed down, And the world was in our possession. It was in her glance That I saw my true reflection. I’...

    Left in this garden Bereft of life ’neath this snow Lone, near dead myself Mine anger burns bright Against the season’s harsh chill Warmer than sorrow Woody cathedral Towering majestically Above what pains us so Here I leave my love For to ...
