Love Eternal
When the sun no longer shines,
With its ever warming light.
And the stars that once did sparkle
Fade away into the night.

When the waves of all the oceans
Stop dancing shore to shore.
And the lightning no longer crashes
With all its thunderous roar.

BETRAYAL
Cuts like a knife
Destroyed my life
Now i’ll never
Be your wife

You played your games
For 20 years
Whilst i grew old
And felt the fears
A lonely life
Brim full of tears.
A cruel encapsulation.

You are free
And i am not
So now you’ve gone
What have i got -
Absolutely...Read More

And the will that draw us closer

Abhi to wo khadi hui thi gaad diya zinda,
Tumhare paap se hai insaniyat sharminda,

Yun mombattiyan jala kar kaise zindagi sawaroge,

The Sandal II

Go!
 That ancient life
You have on your shoulder
By the river of time
Love is all there's left to lose
Lost
You're not alone anymore
This ancient life
Ghost!
Their voices are all 
Resting in your bones
In the river of time
Love is all there's left to lose
Lost

am i swallowing
them or are they
swallowing me

the hourglass has
been turned over

and with each second
it seems the quicksand
is quickly taking me

deeper down a rabbit's

nothing to see i can't

even see the darkness
and though a synapse
sparks i think...Read More

Leaving wherever I'm going completely up to chance and imagination
It's moving between the speeds of 40 and 60 to keep things safe...Read More

My Sadness
Need I tell you
My sadness is no longer a secret
Openly I shed tears
Dull my eyes
And wet my cheeks
My sadness is mine
I too suffer that unique pain
Caused not by being alone 
But by being born again and again
As though rising from...Read More
