To the Young Woman in the Green Dress
Butterfly, from the corner of my eye, you drew my gaze,
Wings cloaked in seafoam, hair ablaze with amber and flame,
I: transfixed by your figure as you danced into my personal space.

I apologize for staring at you for so long it...Read More

Rich in Spirit.
Rich is to be rich in spirit. To be known in heart, mind, body and soul. To be known to the core can only be known through spirit. With spirit comes love and a knowing beyond yourself that...Read More

Running Wild
I'm succumbing to this numb feeling inside my dumb cranium
I've become someone else...a rebel...a worthless bread crumb
I will overcome these waves of emotion...drunk off of remorse's rum

I'm handsome in this pain of insanity and reign upon me happiness instead
The drums...Read More

Prelude to Beauty
Had you not inspired such
a  flame deep and bellowing 
in the cavity of my chest 
where my heart used to be 
i'd be not but a shell 
A beautiful, soulless
corpse condemned to walk 
this earth for an eternity

Hands of Time
Written: by Miracle Man

There’s no negating the hands of time,
So, I can’t recapture a belfry’s chime.
Knowing, time alone, it’s he who slays,
once I’ve lived out God’s appointed days.

God gave me time and I chose its use,
and early life...Read More

You held me with hope in mind
You gave me light when I was blind
You gave me home when I was lost, oh so lost
You gave me love when I needed it the most

Cemetery Of Dreams
Chilled, fresh crisp breath 
walks slowly across the night
beckoning to me, to wonder
autumn making her mark

a star filled sky blankets the moon
dim lit pumpkins flicker
igniting an inner glow

life stumbles on 
leading slow
to a cemetery of forgotten dreams

an eternity it seems

So Vaguely Clear
I remember…

It was an awful oppressing day,
The clouds were dim and the air was frosty…
I couldn't stop myself, I ran to my room and died. 
Tears were streaming down my face as Niagara falls in mid-summer.
As I looked into the...Read More

To seek a feeling as my own
To guide the hand of my thoughts towards it
Feeling, prodding, tearing for an eternity
Flawless with my destruction
For in time, having come finally due
It wears down
Slowly, softly reminding me
Who I am, cannot sustain who I...Read More

Should you be mine, Just for a Moment
Should you be mine, just for a moment
I will make it count,
I will pull you closer, and feel your warm breath,
Then look into your cute eyes,
Then gently kiss your forehead,
Then gently cruise my lips down to yours,
And let them hold...Read More

Premium Member The Devil
God created a universe to appease,
The earth, the stars, the seas.
He also created the devil who would tease
He would be the angry, rebellious seed

Once an angel of light is his confession
He was kicked out of God’s glorious heaven
To begin his...Read More

My Friend's House

 My friend lived in a different city
We hadn’t met, seemed an eternity.
In my dream once he said he’d come,
Revive the old memories over rum.

He came on the day he said he would,
I found him smiling in a happy mood.

I Had a Dream
It has been a really hot summer
Looking forward to a cold winter
The summer heat is slowly cooling off 
I think the wintry breeze had enough…

Been frozen in hellfire 
In my lonely, lustful desire
I'm so sorry for my daily sinning
I'm sorry...Read More

OH Autumn Breeze

Oh Autumn breeze, I hate you thee,
You have come back here to remind me.
That trees will die, you will darken the sky,
And turn everything grey around me.

As the cold whispers in,
The nights will grow longer upon me.
Soon the...Read More

A Fear the Day

I Fear the Day 

I fear the day 

the sheer length of it. 

It's call to actions 

and not words. 


Fearing it while it is 

and loving it when it is gone, 

right or wrong. 

Evening beckons......Read More

Since living without you
My life has not been an ongoing party 
Your death took more than love away
It took my own breath and left an empty carcass behind

You left me an irrelevant man full of memories 
Memories we created in...Read More

Buried in an atmosphere of extraordinary languor,
I think of you spending an eternity in my arms,
And how horrible it would be like to live without you.

I think of having you as the mother of my...Read More

getting through to tomorrow is progress
Never have such words rang so true

Caught in the rapids under stress
Where a year seems like an eternity to you

not knowing what we might find
What we discovered was a lone headstone 
surrounded by a circle of pines.

There was only a last name written on it
neath the words… ’In memory...Read More

Chrysanthemum's Farewell
Stayed you have for an eternity
Endured the unforgiving wind
uncertainty, the rain has washed 
you clean of sanity

"Why must this be" uttered your petals
No one was witness, in the very place you were
you curled, withered just as the winds
hit the unforgiving...Read More

Winter Comes Early
Winter came early…
Its heavy coat
Sealing in the cold
The sky
More visible
Its view not the same
The blue faded gray
With distance in charge
And the wind
The wind never stops
The wind
Never whispers
Like in summer
Sneaking up from behind
Touching your neck
Reclaiming your soul
The winter wind
Pushes and shoves
With...Read More

One death 

forgiveness, death
you once promised me an eternity 
give back my breath
you wicked whet
you once promised me an eternity you lied
I beg for forgiveness life
not but a stolen kiss shall darkness make
there is the only belligerence
death forgave now, alive
