Unnatural selection
Life started out pretty well, of that I won’t complain,
Somehow then I lost it, god knows I can’t explain.

Life is a haze and passing, like the blink of a teary eye.

When it came to dating I had a soul full of sorrow
But all of my friends told me to hang in there
When we met I felt you looking into my soul
My soul laid bare with all protection lost
They say absence...Read More

By a HAIR, the bullet misses
There's more than meets the EYE today
But the river's MOUTH is too wide, 
My NECK of the woods far away

The weariness hard to SHOULDER
This BODY of water my bane
No where to go, with heaving CHEST

Patience of accusations begin to thin 
As they toss complaints at me from now til then
If i could summarize my existence that easily i would 
But another question is that if i even should

Beauty is More Than Meets the Eye
There are beautiful creatures to grace plains.
There are beautiful flowers for bouquets. 
There are beautiful people …

The Consequences
When you’ve felt the hatred of others,
Upon your skin and heart, 
Because you were different,
There is no forgetting it.

It marks your relationships, 
It ruins your thoughts,
It makes you loathe yourself,
And that’s only the start of it.

You want to make others...Read More

More Than Meets The Eye
Looking all around, I see nothing but black. 
Yet when I look down, I see a sliver of color. 
A sign that tells me there is hope of going back.
Surrounded by darkness, you keep me sane

When I'm Licking Toads

We travel this same road don't know where it may lead
The greedy overload take much more than they need

A mother’s natural instinct, a sixth sense and premonitions.
Surely this can’t all just be a coincidence?
Surely this proves, there’s more than meets the eye?
Surely this proves, we had a past life?
Maybe nobody actually dies and floats...Read More

Broken
Don't judge before you know
Don't laugh before you go

He's almost had enough

Waiting for nothing
And everything to happen

Waiting for you to come back down

Who shall never know how much

Sense and Science
There's power abounds within our worlds,
that science will deny.
Just silly folks with twisted minds
who rant and rage and lie!
If they can't see, or touch or smell,
they know it isn't there.
Until the day, to their dismay
it's forced on them to share!

Soon it will be a beautiful rose

Who Are We

Sometimes I wonder where I am in the scheme of things;
I often ponder who I am.
The more I age the more epiphany's I get;
each of them making a different man.
Yesterday's me could never foresee who I am now.
I can't pretend...Read More

Into A Thousand Shards
Burst into a thousand shards
Sparkle, glint in the moonlight

And ice cold will you turn
Burst into a thousand shards
Shining in the sunlight

That there is more than meets the eye

More Than Meets the Eye
Don't blame the bearer of bad news -
A gun doesn't kill by itself or a knife,
Nor a violent video game or hostile views;
An evil act is but wrought by a mind's strife.

When you nurture a seedling or stunt its growth,

Speeding along life's highway
With the scenery flashing by
Must stop and smell the roses

Subtleties that mean so much

The warmth of a babies touch

Mountain
Beyond the flowers,
Mountains stand at the distance
Filling the landscape..

Covered with white snow,
Stand out against everything
By their tall structure..

Catch all attention 
By beauty, but there's always
More than meets the eye..

When We Both Can See Eternity
If we could only comprehend 
The miracle of this hour;
Awareness of existence 
Is beyond poetic power.  
As something we tend to overlook
In our daily routine woes;
Lost in pain and suffering 
Forgetting what we know.
Deep within and out again,
Intangibly unbound;
