THE JOKER
All these people left to their own devices,
white, brown and black all in different sizes,
they started off white but things got dirtier,

That was 'her' - what about 'him,' maybe in the...Read More

We learned about each other, we...Read More

The Earth was with void and always night
Until God said, “Let there be Light.”
And then God saw that it was good.
And separated Light from darkness, and Light it stood.
And darkness will never...Read More

Awareness
My fall,
Expected it was,
I could not take it,
It broke me apart.
Unable to put together
My shattered self
I could not gather my wits
And sought refuge
In the darkness

Actually 
I need not have sought Light,
It hurt me
For having seen too...Read More

Time takes away all hurt, all pain, all feelings.

But what it doesn't erase is the memories.

You may forget about it, 

But it's always there, lurking in your subconscious, waiting.

It's not my fire, yet you let it burn.
Rage and pain drive you insane,
creating a parody of hypocritical lies.
Judgemental eyes ignite in fumes,
ignorant to another man's shoes.

Silent emotions
They say he shows no emotions,
