36 years ago this day
It all happend 36 years ago today 
The date being april 24th of 1983

The young man in a daze , walked away 
Opposite direction of the smashed up tree...Read More

Premium Member A relationship breakdown by phone
You and me, by day, we’re drifting apart, 
Less push, no heat and no drive,
Where once we had a connection of love, 
Now everything seems to have died,

And the end of each day comes sooner and fast, 
What we had...Read More

we stood there
posing
shivering
on a cold
november morning
hearts heavy
saying our goodbyes
as we laid
your soul
to rest

Premium Member Summer's Ash
As yet another summer grows old,
Jasmine senses the coming cold.
Amid the dancing autumn leaves,
In the shadows, a boy grieves!

Gold memories of the golden days,
But feeling yet the warming rays.
Splash of water, soaring kites-
Softly dream of summer's rites,

Secret, satiny, whispering wind,

A passing

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.

Forever Forgive Me
Forever forgive me
For my one and only iniquity
Please forgive me
With forbearance eternally

Lots of anger and lust
Got a hold of me…
So, I must...oh, I must…
Set my soul free

Determine my footsteps to the light
Emotionally unhappy
Intervene in my life with utter...Read More

Now I can see the sort of fool I am,
That let you walk away with no goodbyes.
So softly through your hair my fingers ran,
So deeply did I gaze into your eyes.
Now everywhere I look I see your face
And mourn again...Read More

Yet the middle poses daily tests

The tempest kiss of seaweed miss.
Her temper heard ~ his heart stirred.
     His ship astern and fast.
    The siren’s scorn lambaste;
Blind youth’s reality is blurred.

A pearlescent veil, the...Read More

Huge red-orange sun slowly recede,
Upon the sky seem to bleed;
Whispers of night, calling home,
Such sunset days rarely spent alone.

Look ahead to starry skies;
Not time for early goodbyes.
Without love cannot the heart grow-
A new day comes beyond the rainbow!

The senselessness of war
The senselessness of war

As you waved your goodbyes.
Tears swelled up in my eyes.
As I feared what  all parents dread.

You left full of life.
Leaving a son and a wife. 
And you ended up getting yourself dead.

Now the battle is won....Read More

Tomorrow isn't Promised Today
Cast away the sorrow from my soul
Make the ugliness seem so beautiful
Craft me with your eager elegance
Resurrect me with your pure radiance

My veins are flooded with the blood of my enemies
Please don't catch me off guard and set my soul...Read More

Closing doors
In denial is a serious sickness
Watching every move I make
Simply because a word has been uttered to me
A minute time passed
With the hope that nothing has changed
How delusional of me
To have believed in an unknown situation
To have been sacred
Simply because...Read More

In a world
Of blues and greys
Streaked in swirls
Of sunlit shadows
Hints of gold
Tinge a brisk morning air
The cool stillness ruffled
Of a glassy lake
Not a sound it makes to wake
A sleepy drowsy nature
Gearing up to hibernate
All good things come to an end

Boots that fit one last time 
My hands to give for you to warm
Songs to play the choice we made
Steps so slow to hold the love you gave 

Silence of room crowds of eyes
Doors of pain voices of verse

his strength i saw when he was near me,
