What is that noise?
I have heard it before?
In the ramblings...
of my loved ones words? 

I must get up and seek it out.
I rise like the house is on fire...
but in fear of being alive, 
but dead still. 
I rush.
I place...Read More

did you imagine I could leave you
trapped in quick drying cement
locked forever on a bed of strangers coral
with only sea spray falling on the reef
to mourn your passing?

no my friend
you're coming back with me

A Reflection In Time
Thinking of you when time passes by
I smile when I see your face
Come into memory's view.
Reminiscing about the love we had
I feel your arms embrace me.
You kiss and hold me so close,
I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.

Does Anyone Care
When i go through depression,
and i feel like no one understands,
      does anyone care?

When i tell you how i feel,
and you don't listen,
      does anyone care?

When bullying killed someone

Premium Member Love Waltz
In silence she loved him
In silence he obeyed,
No words were spoken,
So love is not delayed!

In silence he asked her,
In silence they danced,
words did not matter,
their tapping feet talked.

In silence her life with him,
In silence their romance,
No words between them,
Much said...Read More

It is very intense.)

That was not it.

The sad news came out and it quickly went viral,
a shock to the system, a bolt from the blue,
sorrow picked off his friends in a dark downward spiral
from the ones he loved most to the ones he just knew.

Oh Dont You Cry
Here I am. Oh don’t you cry.

I’ve grown my wings and I soar the sky.
I leave a gentle breeze as I’m passing by.

Premium Member - I Was Too Young To Understand -

He let me see his scars,
they was as deep as a bottomless ocean
Every day his demons played to dance
Like salt in the wounds, a pitiful truth
The dark voices he heard in the shadows
It was not an illusion,
he had heard them...Read More

Take me under
Dark clouds belie, such desolate eyes,
Nebulous in mind, approaching the void,

Bereft of love, what might have been,
A nightmare, of unrequited dreams,

Drawn towards oceans, dark and deep,
Traveled to the coast, now within reach,

Around my neck, placed rosary beads,
Don’t know why, just...Read More

Addiction and Suicide
Drug Addiction and suicide are no joke.
Some people find it entertaining when those individuals croak.
Recovering and living I've seen both sides
I just wish people could live their lives.

Whether it's a pill, powder, or a needle
This epidemic can be unspeakable.
Whether it's...Read More

Misfortune comes at the worst expense,
Anxiety following stress taking over in depth intense.

Overwhelming sweat covering my hands and feet.

Arms to heavy with legs fighting to rest...
Suddenly consuming me......

It’s over now
He’s dead and gone
They buried him
Below the ground

It’s over now
His voice shall we no longer hear
He’s dead and gone
Can’t hear a sound

There are voices
Soft spoken and I hear them
Yes, I hear them
There sighs of relief,
 Filled with grief

Playful whiskers dipping in whiskey shots
 to shoot the name of the poison lingering 
as sorrow beat at the chest from the inside

Over a relapse I listened to a heart beat 
finding the mining of missing amusing 
but the ache...Read More
