Two gazes crossed in the crowded room
Discreetly, without being discovered 
Sending a message that only someone
Who is in love decodes its meaning

The entire time we spent
Searching through ruins and sands
For a reason or just
An answer that would

The Heart's Malcontent Eye
Secluded mind murder
Windows are false inside here
I find here,deep inside here...i don't find myself hoping for peace

The cheerful souls have perished...the beautiful people have all...Read More

Eternal Flame [ minus one stanza and envoi ]
The wicked world, in this age is full of sin,
All youth have a lust for the obscene;

In the light of the flickering flames they reflect in flares
Smoke and ash, they hint their times when they too were alive
And in shadow dance they visit to show where some...Read More
