this lusciously lavish landscape

And yet a sense of foreboding permeates the midnight air

on whispering breeze to soothe your grief
within whose breaths a healing yarrow
to whisk away tears upon your leaf.
Sweet rustling zephyrs...
flower, heartbreak, son, summer,
How may I extol a midsummer breeze?
As soft as rose petals in cooling wind
That flutters leaves upon the verdant trees,

A world that's gone insane

Forced to live without...
BLUE MOON RISING ON A STORMY NIGHT - TITLES CONTEST

on a stormy night
I sit sobbing
when we fell out of love
The point of no return,
In Woes And Throes Of Sorrow
emotions, heartbreak, loneliness, lost
I rise and fall like melancholy tides
in ebb and flow of wistful disrepair,
our separate in consciousness divides,
the whiff of grief fills broken-hearted air.

Last breath of sunset
Royal blue sky scattered sapphire clouds
On horizon embroidered in navy blue attire
Summoned by the onset of marigold sun
Emitting amber gold on tuscan yellow fire
I died a little inside

In the silence of sadness,
what will the winds bring tomorrow?
In the sadness of silence,
my soul sighs soft breaths of sorrow.

In dialogues, she rips and shreds my brothers sheets
Her moves are naught more than an exposed...

Over rocky roads
In vaulted box
No strings attached

Clutched tight to my chest, the doll smiles lifelessly
sending vacant stares down the darkened hall.
A solitary line of pink light sneaks through a crack in...

After all these years, we've weathered many a heavy storm
Now my life is empty with no one to keep me warm
Bitter tears I've sadly wept,...

big fat tears
down her chubby cheeks
down her pillar like neck
which was once
much like a swan

heartbreak, love hurts,
It's never anything big, just a nagging defeat
Of wanting to be exclusive in your ambit,
For in your eyes, I see an opportune disguise
Living as a...

Vines along the gated path
Songs of never left forgotten

How To Fall

All by yourself........
