--Goodbye--To my Addiction-

The time has come to part,
I will leave many with broken hearts
If one day you call on me,
I'm sad to say I will hold my tongue missing each one relentlessly 
I'm not doing this for me; I am doing this for you
I could stay here and win, and not give in 
But, this soup bowl comes with demons and nasty shadows
Demons and nasty shadows, taking and crashing my light
Demons I had to fight off the entire time I was here
Shadows hating the way I welcomed every poet with a happy cheer
Demons and shadows whom drown in their selfish everyday pity.

For those smiling on my departure, 
I want you to have this wonderful gift 
So please copy paste this moment from the bottom of my heart
**I hope this gift brings you laughter, knowing 
I've been sad, these past few days, drying up my final soup tears**

I will miss this part of what makes me ME -my love and lust for poetry.
I agree with many I should never surrender to the envy of demonic dust
Giving up the passion that completed a part of my soul for years
But, the reality of life, is the life's I give and given when I make love happen
In my heart I know it's time to give myself back to reality
SO AT THE END I WIN, I'm the one who ends up with an everlasting smile
I'll finally be free from this place, where most treated me unfair & unkind
Free, from the negativity of the few who hide behind a dishonest disguise?

Wait until you notice your soup bowl's going stale
You will miss me, and I will miss you
But, my enemy will miss me even more
Reminiscing the times we spent hogging up 70% of blogs,
Arguing and fighting over not agreeing with many thoughts.
But, it was never the differences of opinions, it was more like---
Let's slay the Destroyer, a name like that should never be on top
So please know I am sad, and this is not the way I want to go
I'm not leaving you because I want to 
I'm leaving you because, the rumors are 
"The soup is better without the sweetness of the poet destroyer."
The only big thing about me -was my heart not my ego 
I never claimed to be the best; 
You're the one who claimed I am good enough
You took me in and returned my love
In ways others could and would not accept.
And for you my loving poet friends, and fans
I will walk away with my dignity/integrity; 
I guess I'm finally growing up 
In becoming the bigger/better poet.

Signing Off ---Love 
The Poet Destroyer

Missing You

At night I dream of flying in the sky, 
Looking down at the world as I slowly fly. 

It's beautiful to watch the oceans so blue, 
The rainbows, butterflies and than I see you. 

You always catch my eyes with your handsome sweet face, 
I know in my dreams it's alright to be in your space. 

I know it is not real or even slightly true. 
It is okay with me because that's when I see you. 

With my eyes closed and my heart beating fast, 
I wish I would have stayed with you, but thats all in the past. 

I should have never let you leave and walk away, 
Because now my life has no color, it is just gray.

I will just continue to see you while I sleep, 
Even though my heart will always hurt and weep. 

One more night I'll wish to see you. 
It's the only time my skies are blue.

From the depths within the deepest wells
 Amidst our friendship
 A confection of sorts
The darkest of all that dwells
 A blissful taste of blindness 
 Tends to saturate this darkness
Inside a living world of Hell
Spoken words that HATE is stirred
   And so it goes as The Devil grows
A cauldron
 Inside I fell
 Wished to death and cast His spell
Naked eyelids from behind us fell
 Bound in endless MADNESS
 Damned to eternal SADNESS
Forsaken as He chimes His bell
 For whom it tolls
 Blackened spirits rose
     And so it goes as The Devil grows
A resurrection of forgotten Souls
 Shadows of faceless strangers
 Dance and play in the face of danger
Silenced without a tongue to tell
 Masquerading these dark secrets
 Then we laugh as it's laced   We drink it
With this knot I slipped into my hole
It's a Fairy Tale in the Hell we know
     And so it goes as The Devil grows
With blood as my tears
   Stay Gold

I will take your bitterness and I will rise above From you, I do not feel the love I cannot fight you but, that does not mean I cannot win I simply will not allow you to break me down, again You want me to fall Now I am taking a stand For your words and your weakness Go hand in hand I will no longer live my life for you or anyone else It is time that I start living for myself It is your turn to listen to what I have to say I will no longer let you stand in my way You are a part of my life I must let go You are someone I wish I did not know I must follow the path ahead of me Courage and strength will see me through For, I am finally done with you So take these words as my final cry For this is the day that I say goodbye

My Father, My Hero

He was my hero when I was a child, 
His way with words were never harsh, always mild. 

He taught me how to live and have a pure heart, 
This he showed me from the very start. 

I felt he was too easy because he never took a stand, 
But as I grew older, I realized that's what he planned. 

He needed to be caring and the parent that would listen, 
Each time I spoke to him, his eyes would always glisten. 

Now that I am a mother and have a daughter myself, 
I learned from him how to make her feel special, never just on the shelf. 

He showed me how to be very good hearted sometimes, too much, 
But it helped me to keep my loved ones close in my clutch.

Each day that passes I realize what he helped me become, 
I'll always be full of love and emotions, never numb. 

My hero is my father but he passed away, 
I will always love you and I miss you everyday.

GOODBYE MEANS GOODBYE You seem to be still feeling down. Domestic violence decries. You dragging your feet now. It’s time for your spirit to shine. No need to cry. Wipe the tears from your eyes. The melodrama days you have left behind. You left that man now you want to cry. Is he worth it Boo? Go on with your life. Wipe the tears from yours eyes. Spread your wings and feel alive. The melodrama days are no longer around. The arguments the volatile environments A struggle known love took over. You got your senses in check. So you left. Wipe your eyes. Leave the crying behind and Ease your mind. You said goodbye. Now live by it. __________________________________________| Written October 17, 2015!

In the morning at 4am
Ma took me in her arms
She said "Let's go out little Ben"
As she walked through the barn

The day before, Ma was crying
Searching for air as she gasped
Strangers asked her to stop trying
They said it's for the best

Food was so scarce in our village
Poverty in display
The robbers and thieves they pillaged
To everyone's dismay

Mama tried hard to keep me well
Since Daddy was long gone
But she's a victim in this hell
In hell, hope never dawns

The day before, they came to us
They said one word "Adopt"
Mama cried when they called me "Love"
When she smiled, my heart stopped

In the morning at 4am
Ma woke me up from sleep
She said "Let's go out little Ben"
Crossing the forest deep

I asked Mama where we're going
She clasped my hand so tight
I saw my fate not a knowing
Everything was a blight

We came a halt at a doorstep
Handsome house with grandeur
Ma ran the bell; I held my breath
The door opened; I shuddered

Ma pulled me close, and held me tight
Rocking me as she swayed
She said "Darling, hold your head high"
Mama don't go away

From The National Poet Of Slovenia In A Language People Understand - THE RUINS OF THE ANCIEN REGIME

Farewell, then, AUKN boss,
The next this year makes three.
By the time they find a substitute,
Slovenes will be at sea.

He tried to cover his behind;
AUKN boss of bosses,
As every week, balances grew bleak:
He weighed merits and losses.

With all this he'd no time to eat,
And round and round he flew.
And now he's split in a hissy-fit;
So helmsman, too-de-loo!

Day after day, day after day,
He drifted on the ocean;
Guano-vernment rained on his ship
Their suggestions for promotion.

Cousins, cousins, everywhere,
Corporate boards crosslink;
Cousins, cousins, everywhere,
Let's take you for a drink.

Accountants talking rot: O Christ!
Missions, visions - oh please!
Yea, slimy characters need legs
And slimy policies.

So has he done an hellish thing?
Not hired who? We dunno:
Was it absurd, to have a separate curd
From the whey Slovenia owes?
This wretch won't play, after 60 days;
Pissflaps, he'll have to go!

God help ya, gospod Bencina
From the fiends, that plague us thus! -
It's time to go — shot like cross-bow,
The AUKN boss.

Ah! walk-out day! what evil looks
Had I from Ernst and Young!
Who's at a loss? AUKN's boss
Wouldn't take a bung?

"You'll be" quoth one, "abolished - no
Stigma to double-cross."
He chose to go - why? We don't know:
Harmless AUKN boss.

Re-reading the original gave me a great idea for dinner until I realised all the storks have all flapped off to Africa for the winter. Pity, as I have some ancient marinade from Tuš. Like the subject of the poem, I didn't have the stamina for a Coleridge-length effort.

Kiss the Rain

Kiss the Rain 

By: Tyner Twine 

'A ballad I wrote based on the Piano Music By: Yiruma'.
Dedicated to the man I used to know

As I take a glimpse
On the endless sea
I felt the oceans
Between you and me

Our fates never crossed
Our love was lost
Through the tides and waves
Of our destiny 

The day you swore to be
Forever with me
Was also the day 
That you've left me be

To be by the side
Of another bride
And I am left with pain
As I kiss the rain

And so tonight,
I’ll cry to sleep
Hoping dearly that someday you 
Will come back to me

But dreams aren't true
I clearly knew, 
That today
I have just lost my most important ‘you.’


((You and I both knew we could never fight it, that we could never evade it, 
that we could change…But I know that amidst the smile you hide your pain…
the pain that I can’t ever share from now on…because I have lost you…
and you have lost me.))

As the waves grew
And we drift apart
Please meet my eyes
To say your goodbye

But you looked away
And left all the pain
Deep in my heart
As I kiss the rain

And so tonight, 
I cried to sleep
And hoped someday that you
Will come back to me

But dreams aren't true
I clearly knew,
That tonight,
There will be no love from ‘me and you’

So love, I’ll say goodbye,
And hide the tears to cry
Your fake smile will haunt me down
Until I die

For we have loved so true
And lost ‘me and you,’
Left with scars and clouds,
And tears from heaven

As I feel the rain,
Wash down all the pain,
Our dreams reached out 
And died in vain

Please stay by my side,
Hold me through the nights,
As we fight in vain,
As we kiss the rain.

Yet why am I alone in the rain?

Ballad of Joyce Hill

  To her family she was coy
  but truly she would be their Joy,
  a country girl from Kingaroy -
                     the fourth of eleven.
  Over hill and range she would tramp
  living in tents from camp to camp
  by the glow of a railway lamp
               and the stars in heaven!

  Along the way past Many Peaks
  swam in Splinter and Monal Creeks
  where a child a gay frolic seeks
                   in the heat of the day.
  Up on the range where it outlooks
  when not tending the campsite chooks
  she read in school her beloved books
                   dreaming of far away!

  As an older girl on horseback
  she'd ride for miles a dusty track
  like a drover with a knapsack
            where the long trail begins.
  Up "dash it" early milking cows,
  picking cotton and feeding sows
  and shooting possums in their boughs
               to sell their bounty skins!

 "O someday I'll teach school" she said
  till she met Arthur Hill and wed
  and bore life to her eldest, Ted -
               the first of eight to come.
  In Mt Morgan where miners drilled
  as rains came and Trotters Creek filled
  a new life on the land she'd build
                 and be a wife and mum!

  But on their farm and dairy run
 "hells bells" there was work to be done
  from sunup to the setting sun
            and all must do their share.
  Through the Great Depression and war
  a boundless faith to God she swore
  and it burned in her evermore
                      in His heavenly care!

  Her hands had many mouths to feed
  and so when hungry kids did plead
  she baked the bread dough that she knead
               in the old woodfired stove.
  And with her weary frame so sprite
  late as the curlews cried at night
  she read her bible with delight
                        as it did her behove!

  In her time a digger of wells
  when the winds blew in dry hot spells
  and echoed the sound of train bells
                  up and down the railway.
  A grazier, tiller, and sower,
  a painter, milker, and grower,
  a doer, thinker, and knower,
                         and a potter of clay!

  To all her far flung family
  a great-great-grandmother was she,
  and like a grandmother to me
                 whom I most gladly knew.
  So now when I hear the tick tock
  and chimes of the pendulum clock
  or "tommyrot" and "poppycock"
                        I'm reminded of you!

                August 2016

Joyce or "Joy" was my wife's grandmother.
A remarkable woman who I got to know well.
Despite what it says in the funeral notice 
she was in fact a great-great-grandmother.

Your forest

Your Forest
You're gone, far far away
Come back, that's all i want to say.
I want you to miss me
But i know that's impossible
Still, your forest is impassable

Your forest is beautiful
Staying inside is so meaningful
Although i know it will rain,
But i can survive in the pain

All these problems i can go through,
if i have you
So I need you.

I Thought Of You

I Thought About You 

(My Her Story Of A Past Love)

I thought  about you and banished all doubt..
adoration projects inside out..
for  my love is a beautiful sphere void of all fear....
The sinister flees your Glen ,my robin takes flight.

I'm floating words flowing..
Darling I thought about you sweating tonight..
The solace of northeast winds lift me pass ..
For I am There with you bearing all..

I thought about you  baby through natures eyes..
lush green elms ,wildflowers..the spirit horse rides.. 
With honor and truth old soul essence abides...
Dreams blossom in timelessness..
your summer heat pressed against me..

The honey is still there from your kisses pressed against the glass..
from your temple of sound..
For I 'm a wanderer too..
I dwell pulsating in the realms of  your inner space..

Where ever I wander I do with all my heart, my soul,my being..
Forgive me my dearest,opening closing doors..
the clock ticks and alarms..

I fall , crashing our time barriers...
dizzy hissing,holding the thought of only Sean..

the last good-bye

Disregard September’s lasting day, its simplicity long foretold, 
As the sound of summer has past us by, into the crisp and radiant fall;
Come hold this mirror to a ray of light, and pass the moment on,     
When in the hint of a calming breeze, is held the lost good-bye

Forever leaves of a brighter shade have fallen from there boughs,
While overhead October waits to softly steal by; 
For opportunities are gone to soon, and change as mornings past 
Like the worth of days, trapped in that sweet good-bye 

Man senses November and its desolate hours in a fog of its own regret,
When the sun could not cool the night, nor the moon give warmth to day;
We are caught in the measure of simple words, tied to hope and wonder
That speaks of a last good-bye

Wrapped tight in the cold of December, bound to the rhythm of life,
Gone to solitudes isolation and the sadness of that forgotten farewell,
Sacrificed to the wind that winter holds, bound to a memory past
Intent to hear of our last good-bye

Love gone wrong

Glass shattered-
the bottles melting
that green-eyed feeling overcoming-
but the cause of it was you.
You're wandering eyes neglect me
while you pretend to look away
but I see right through those pretty brown eyes
and you definitely don't want to stay
I'm that safety net-
to a person who's my world
and while you
poke at my eyes
laugh at my fits
I know your real girl
and she's not the person you've been with
for a year now coming up
instead i'm just a distraction
trying to become better than you've had
but you can't even see that
I'm psycho- that's all there is to it
but remember when i'm gone
and realize my worth
that you were really nothing-
but a lesson gone wrong
a lesson that was supposed to relieve the grief
a lesson of love gone wrong

Loosing A Child

It hurts very much,
When the one's you love,
Are ripped from your very life,
It makes you feel as if,
You are not up to being,
The person you should be,
In this dreary everyday world,
That can be so cruel.
So, think about how your life,
Is running it's very course,
And what changes you need to make'
To better your life,
In order to see the happiness,
Of keeping the beautiful thing,
You have created,
And brought into this very world,
So, you can keep this child,
Close to you in your life,
And watch it grow,
To bond with them each and everyday,
So, the child will never grow up,
knowing someone else,
As Mom and Dad,
Pushing you away from their life,
Till the day,
You will be totally gone,
From their hearts and minds,
Which is the sign of disaster all the way,
For it will be the hurt of a lifetime.

William part 1

I ask all to be open minded as I tell the story of my friend,  William .
There are so many prejudice in this World , from color to sex 

To me it has always been the soul , the person inside 
For one that is shallow will not experience life in true blessing 

William my friend was African American , he was fun and personality full of 'I am here "
William was Gay , William disowned , William called "A queer "

Well this is a lesson for all to know
God does not care what color , but the heart , what color it shows .

I had left my 1st Husband , with 2 children I had to support .
I was depressed , felt alone in the civilian World of a sort 

For when I got to Monterey bay , I was on a Military base 
Very shy and recluse , not leaving the perimeter of the land 
I opened such a big door when I left that abusive Man 

I had the tiniest apartment with 2 little rooms , probably 550 sq. feet I presume .
I will never for get the night He came to my door , William ," Girl, lets go dancing 
Let's go explore ! He called me 'The platinum Blonde "

We went out together and danced , he was amazing ! William energized any room . He Lit it Up ! 
For he had something inside his beautiful soul , no money could buy, nor silver or gold.

Well years went by in Monterey bay , I had fallen in love with a man , Lost so much time .

Time went by , after the man broke my heart ,I remember "where is William "
I missed something that lies  deep in my heart . The true Love and friendship of he I craved .

Now this story is long so go to  "William part 2  "be patient , be brave .

Don't Forget Me

Love is something
Something great
And I won't let you
Fade away

But I know
I have to let you go
We can only look up
To tomorrow

It's all happening so fast
We know we can't live on in the past

So please don't forget me
Today, I set you free
We may be apart
But not in our hearts

I feel so lonely
Without you with me
My heart races
When I see your face....in my dreams

Please forgive me
I don't want to face reality
You are the light
In the cold bitter night

Believe in me
Remember me
You and our memories
Will stay inside of me...forever

Invisible Chains

Longing for arms that once held me tight
Longing to make love to you - it once felt so right
Longing for something…I’m not quite sure
All I know is when you held me 
I felt so secure 

I wish I could close my eyes - start this life over 
Wake up in a new time and place
And start each day 
Smiling back at your beautiful face 
It’s your laughter I miss, your sweet gentle kiss…

Still I need to remember 
That day in September
When you said you never loved me
 Said you set my heart free

I think you will agree…
That the love that we shared 
Was but one sided
The love I felt for you
Was sadly misguided

I fooled myself, I wasn’t that smart
Thought I could be the one 
To unlock your heart

I thought I was living my dream 
Didn’t know I was living a lie
A lie I was too blinded to see
Until you said goodbye

Loving you was all that mattered
Now I’m left to pick up the pieces of my heart…
Now broken and battered 

The time has come to close this chapter 
I’m no longer your slave
You are no longer my captor
For you didn’t know what you had
I would have gone to the ends of the earth for you
Would have loved you forever 

So yes it is time 
Time to break these invisible chains 
Of a love
That was felt only by me
These invisible chains 
Of a love that was never meant to be

i’ve been dragging around this life
too long
everything I wanted, I had.  I did.
Don’t want to wait for it to end
too long
too long

Taking things into my own hands again
the right way
the way it Used to be

Saying goodbye to this life
not to people
not to places
just to this life
which was so long ago begun
not in love
but lust
and then bit by bit
it was ripped and shredded
until I could no longer tolerate it

This life.
So done.
so through with it all. 
The decisions I am not capable of making
yet others thought I was just being stubborn.
Unable to think the way others do.
To be capable of processing information in some fashion
that I cannot.
Too bad nobody cares.
I used to bring so much to the table.

Hurts to breathe
to think
to exist anymore
Don’t want to.
and that’s My Choice.
If I can be so “grownup as to make choices yourself”
Than I Will

Let my legacy be
that once, 
and then many times,
I was hurt
damaged beyond repair.
Something was also passed through genes
that messed up my brain.
Took up space,
made my children suffer.
I Know All Of This
and I can no longer live with it.

So I can say goodbye cleanly and without frivolous bull****
or useless people trying to convince me otherwise so they feel better

Goodbye life.
Goodbye to my beautiful sons.
Goodbye to the man that I loved
I hope I see you all on the other side a long time from now
My prayer is for peace and beauty for them
and calm and no more crazy mother to cause troubles
Just free and open space to be
to do whatever you need
and without me in your way

goodbye for now...

Baby I 'm thinking what I 've done 
That I 'd easily let you gone 
I never meant to let you down 
Now I 'm miserable and drown 

I wanna tell you I 'm sorry 
My life now is in misery 
I 'll try to make things out 
Lets back our love at south 

Baby I 'm not here if not for you 
Lets back the memories of us two 
This time I 'm talking too much 
'Coz i needed you that such 

I can be some hard to understand 
But please bear my promise and take my hand 
For the times that I cant be there 
I 've regretted it, please love hear 

For the times that I have nothing at all 
You we're there every time I fall 
I 'm afraid to continue this life 
Without you there's no tomorrow 's light 

My life now is not an easy round 
Hoping for our second time around 
Give me another chance for the feelings I have 
'Coz Its gonna be real love.

“Addictive” BY: Tyner Twine "Translate and you shall see." Without an ounce of regret and pain we parted ways in this city Love is nothing but the winds behind our backs and the long and winding road before us the little sea of lies turns into a book of promises A melody made of fragile glass Our hearts must have felt The coming of winter Because we faded with The silver lining You faded ‘cause your 'tomorrow' Is covered in gray Stopped in time and crying for yesterday The words that failed to reach me In our lonely dreams Became nothing but a river of tears The cold loneliness That passed us by The days when it was just too hard to bear The light we continued to search for and lose Became The blacks and grays we hold on to The dying 'flowers' Calls out to my conscience Ahh. And you became the truth I now believe in I know the words "I love you" Will not bring you back to me Our “Forever” is no longer here The moments that spreads like This fearful blizzard Disappears like your voice. The last sad words from me to you Was a tearful 'goodbye' In this frozen time (I want to keep dreaming) In this cold and fateful night Your light begins to fade And slowly slip away. The little truths of the white lies we’d hidden In the sleeping of the faith we once had, The impossible caress of wanting to forget you Haunts us in the monochromatic shades Here on to, I say good bye to you And what was once was true This will be the pledge That I’ll keep on breaking time and time again And so, until forever sleeps in reality I’ll see the sadness of this love And if the day ever comes for us to forget All of our tears will turn into blood The kindness which breached loving Turned into gray And trapped us in this time-stopped world And if our sadness brings in the light we had never seen Always remember, The end from which we are standing, …Is the birth of a sad beginning...

It Hurts To Say Goodbye

Every time I leave you, 
It hurts more than I can say
When we say goodbye
Every time I fly away

Every time I leave you
The man I so adore 
The pain I feel goes deeper
And I cry a little more

Every day I wonder if
You ever will be free
Every day I wonder
Will you ever be with me

Every night I cry
Because of leaving you behind
Every tear that falls
The fear of doubt invades my mind

The tears I cry keep coming
Till I’m drowning in the flood
Every day my heart bleeds
But you just don’t see the blood

You're the closest thing to heaven
I will ever be
Please don’t make this love we have
Into a memory

While I'm here remember me
In every song you sing
While you’re there remember me
With all the love I bring

And I will pray next time I fly
To you across the sky
I won’t leave there without you
I won’t have to say goodbye..

For Tonight I'll Cry

By: Tyner Twine

No one knew it was coming,
No one knew that you’ll be leaving
No one knew you were hurting,
No one knew you were dying.

Amongst the bright lights of the festivity,
Yours slowly starts to fade,
It hurts more to know the reality
That nothing can ever be done or said

Memories of my hands holding your tiny body
And memories of when I saved your life
I thought everything will be steady
But now, you’ve left our family.

I feel so shallow
As despair starts to swallow
Guilt starts to follow…
I feel so hallow

I wish there was more time to be with you
Turn back time so I won’t cry like this
Keep you close to me,
At least before you close your eyes.

What’s so hard is I can’t ever deny
Is the fact that I
Wasn’t even by your side
At least to say goodbye.

Outside, the stars shine
The winds sighs,
In your humble grave you lie,
There goes the white butterfly
So for tonight I’ll cry

Her Face

Her Face was perfection, Still see it everywhere
The beauty in her eyes, Please forgive my stare
Though to confess my love, 
Oh no, I wouldn't dare...
So I'll just keep thinking of her, But it's just not fair

Her Face won't go away, So engrained in my mind
This girl was different, Unlike any other I'll ever find
Oh how the two of us, 
How our lives could've aligned...
So now, to everyone else, My heart is blind

But she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face comforts me, Holds me tight and dear
Takes me to another world, A new frontier
I'm dreaming where she loves me so much, 
That part is clear...
But as I awake, Just shed another tear

Her Face and her love, I won't ever forget
Lust for her will remain, Lips will get wet
I'll be reminded of her, 
At each days sunset...
And I'll remember everything, From the first day we met

But she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face is the sunshine, A universal light
With it's soul and it's passion, It was quite a sight
Oh how just to see her, 
Brought me such delight...
But here I am all alone now, Another late night

Her Face will surely lift someone up, With unconditional love
So what will come of me, Can I rise above?
Without Her Face, 
I'm unsure thereof...
Because see, out of my mind, to her, I'll never shove

And she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face, I see it every night, In my dreams
Where everything will all align, Oh how it seems
We're walking together... 
Hands together, Along the forests blue streams

Her Face ignited feelings, Things I've never before felt
Just got to play the hand, The cruel hand I was dealt
I will always have my writing, 
To continue to dwell...
On a lost love to whom one day, I would've knelt

Burning Passion turned Fire

Here comes the stormy fire,
Burned out my desire,
Racing against my chest, my hearts pacing,
Beating the pulse to a pulp, draining me dry,
Now’s the time to let go of this tandem rope,
Crash through this masquerade, there is no hope
Nobodies to blame, but myself,

It was all coming lose at the seams, piece by piece
The music was just too loud; the symphonies were burning my faith in hope
Nothing hurts like you do, walking away never giving me a second glance,
Pompeii, rain down on my parade, burn this farce of a show to cinders,
These ashes of our lives are like pythons underneath my every step,
Each sting a cry from my hearts to live again
Not saying goodbye was the cruelest act. 
No words of comfort or embrace to spare my arteries.

So now I am sitting here listening to the dragon that breathed our love,
Its dying a slow death.
 With every inhalation of this noxious gas, it only exacerbates the constriction on my lungs
Its evident to me that, love is dead.
Its all burned away, there is nothing left
There is no love left.
Love is dead.
Love is dead..
Is love dead?.....

Perfect breathing

Lay still
Beautiful, dutiful angel
Fly to the heavens, a haven for you
Your end is part of your existence
Your existence, a flame burnt into your soul
That sprouts into the fruit of the landscape
And lends itself to the universe a pivotal role

Memories of darkness and heartless envy
Pass through like a bad bad dream
Like a cough that’s been stuck inside your throat
You won’t have those thoughts bleeding into your moat
Those thoughts need not lend themselves to your final moments
Put them high upon the shelf, into the lowly lands of ruins
Think of lights and colors that make you feel warm
Tasteful seeds of happy dreams feed sun onto the storm
Your fateful gown is worn

And as you fade into the dust of ages
And cross into another Multi dimension
A void with people with no faces
Instill belief in your suspension
As we drown in personal grief
You become part of the Global reef
Your heart’s last beat, in perfect breathing
Silent and still, with an empty peaceful mien
Closed hollow lips
Your dead cocoon stiff
No more shall you tremble
Worries disassemble 
Listless lying wistful on the Mazama floor
A Casualty yet you still will have won your inner bitter war
That’s the way expiry should commence
Spirit dissipates through your brawn fence
I hold you pretending that it’s all a trance
But I’ll sit still believing until the end 
I sit still believing until the end
I pretend I hear your perfect breathing like the wind

Never Goodbye

Goodbye to the end of time

Goodbye is so hard for me 
but its okay to say goodbye
for a little time

people always say goodbye 
is always the start of saying hello
so instead of saying goodbye 

I'll say hello.

This is goodbye

You were standing beside me
Telling me all these lies
But I was such a fool so I couldn't see
Until you said all these goodbyes

Now I'm trying to get over you
The best way I know how
I keep reminding myself we're through
And living for the here and now


Cuz you can try to tempt me
But all your tricks they've run dry
We're never going to be happy
NO matter what we try
So yes this is goodbye

Verse 2:

You thought you could hide
And just get away
With having another girl on the side
But I caught on to how you play
I know you feel it too
It's just so hard to admit
But baby unlike you
I'm gonna be hard to forget!

chorus x1


Don't bother begging on your knees
I'm done with that
Ya just give me your set of keys
Before I get out the bat
Ya and come get your clothes
Before I get out the gas
And give the neighbors a show
Ignite them on the grass!

Chorus x1

I hate we love

Heart hurt
Bells of insecurity sound
When you are away from me
when you talk about others not me
when you dress to impress not me
Feeling high while living lies
Camouflaging in self-pity "sweety''
I hate that we love.

How I wish you could get inside me
see me, live me, feel me
Know what I meet everyday 
To see you live another day
But you can't
For your vision is stagnant
How I wish you could see past your nose
And see beyond the make-up on your face
I hate that we love.

I hate that we love
Much more than hate you deserve
I'm out of your way
Lets forget and let it decay
Find someone and build your house
Thanks for my life and my greetings to your spouse
I hate that we love.

Incase we meet, we never met
see me like smoke, lets not talk
I'm going, wish to be back
When I'm back all will be different
But Still I'll hate that we did love.

I am a prison in this hospital bed 
Used to wake-up with a cross above my head 
Pity my race will soon come to its end 
My love for them Please send.

A plastic tube between my nose and lips 
Giving me air, glad I 'm sick! 
Gate of the white palace will soon to be closed 
Guardians of the empire seen in the post.

Outside the window of my hopeless jail 
Children playing by one and more than twail 
Deprived of freedom and happiness 
Laying in this bed full of regrets and anguish. 

Doctors said "soon you 'll be okay 
You need to take your medicines everyday" 
If only I can have a second life
I wish I can tell you "follow God's light".

Wish I can get out in this darkest sorrow 
Be most welcome my self for a better tomorrow 
To the King of white palace thank you for today !
Only prayer for you left as my medicine for everyday.
