I live to do things I like the most
I live to do things I like,
Thinks I adore from the inner part of my heart,
Things that comes in every night I sleep,
Things that awakes me at 10 AM.

I live alongside my passion,
I don't do things that I have no...Read More

No longer true
I almost drowned in my tears when my heart came out of my mouth. Pain too much to bear, I couldn't but hold back as it went south. My fears came crashing down as I braced myself for a fall....Read More

Sing only old songs all day

When my eyes deny sight
Hold my right hand and walk with me all night

Take me to places I have less memories with
Take me to places where breathing...Read More

Memories For Now
Just the night before,
I pulled out a stack of photographs,
There I saw memories trapped in time,
Daddy carrying me up in the air,
I, doing an aeroplane figure in the sky,
I miss daddy.


Ever so slowly I stretch out on my deck chair,
While...Read More

The human heart…the young human heart. I look at our lives, the confusion we live in. Falling in and out of love, having friends..with benefits…dreaming of perfect relationships…unrealistic ones. Sometimes I wonder what kind of children we’re gonna make if...Read More

Before now
Times gone, forgotten
Left in the past
Harsh winds of life
Have broken my mast.

Swept no direction
Lost in my pain
Thoughts of happiness
Now a faded old stain. 

Corners of loneliness 
Fraught every day
Words of contentment 
Stand in my way.

Shadows of grief
Swallow my soul

The Caldera
Deep and blue, fearful and enticing.
The eyes of beauty, falling in the looking,
lost in the depth, that reaches the soul.
Love is destiny, at a time and a place,
to meet, to offer the heart, to submit.
Looking deeply in the eyes of...Read More

smashing great performance
flying cats

blurry waves of conciseness
partnership precarious as

 Waiting  patiently to fall asleep

When the shadows, then darkness
hide the colors of the day,
And a serene Sunday morning
steals the spirit's faith away.

When the last dream is a memory
And there is no place to go,
And the warmest summer breezes
Have become the winter snow.

Can a tiny...Read More

I feel so very, very far away from me
As though it were myself who up and left
Such strange, mind manifestations, seeking relief
From the unremitting pain of my love's death

Under Love's Green Canopy

Love’s golden thread 
binds my heart to yours;
and in beautiful silence,
we lie breathless
in the dark of early morning, 
drifting through fathomless
depths of pure, 
brown-sugared ecstasy,
inhaling the sweet fragrance
of shared delights. 

Nectar-dipped kisses
lingering on the

And things aren't going right

To have and hold all the time,
Even when you sleep!

I flew across the border, with my wings spread wide
Fear, tear and blood - was all I saw.
A little one of four

she held a flower her mother kissed.
There was anger in her eyes,
said she hated how her mother...Read More

Oh, how I love nature’s death;

Alas, climate changes jest;

In death nature grounds struck at heart bay;

As a child, I learned that life is cruel
And justice is blind

A place to be unafraid of my surroundings 
Why am I ever denied
