Words books and you
I pore over words as I would your body

Slowly, taking it all in and reading between the lines

And absorbing, every little facet and detail

Getting the very most out of thing, that I see

Laid out there right before me

Appreciating the touch...Read More

where words aren't just something to fill the page,...Read More

You've all heard the phrase “field of vision”
What we see with the naked eye
But some things that are beyond our vision
Have effects on both you and I

reading between the lines
We've looked at love
enjoyed it all
from both sides now
yours and mine
different love, but still somehow
in our minds
if love's illusion we recall
we'll be fine

do we really know, my love,
fairy tales are
anything at all?
forever


It may seem we're acting strange
fading colors dance with...Read More

Silent Screams
All these things that happened..playing ever so clear in my head.
They are my secrets to take with me, until the day that I am dead.

Too scared to tell anyone, suffocating me so I can't breathe.
Alone I face the darkness, bottling...Read More

Premium Member Lies Of Make Believe
When you’re dreaming of make believe
You better read between the lines to see
It’s the same old story that's both sad and cheap
Of things that almost were
And yet never meant to be
.
You convinced yourself
You could be someone else
If that's what he...Read More

A little girl named Ivy
There's a little girl named Ivy
Who thinks in metaphors 
She plays by herself 
The universe to explore
Shes beginning to comprehend
That her gifts are so much more
Than her neighbors down a floor
The leaves of her trees 
They glisten and they dance
When...Read More

Medea to be heard
If only Medusa to afro the snake

In my kitchen no arsenic
but do not step on my toes
as my fangs will deliver the venom

Cessation
a smile in the darkness draws me near
pull me in and we can disappear  

reading between the lines
on train tracks
in teeth
the way we smile

Carved out memories to remember your eyes
and the feel of how things might have been

My angels must be surely working overtime upstairs
I thank you sincerely for keeping me unharmed
But I'm nervous and becoming increasingly alarmed

Reading Between The Lines
Reading Between the Lines by Kenny Davis

I often read between the lines
Which you might find strange
Rearrange the words in my head
To see if the meaning will change

The words that are said
The expressions, too hard to ignore
My heart wishes to take...Read More

The Bermuda Triangle.
Are we talking shorts
Or waxing?

Some are masters of deceit.
Should they have been born
Chameleons?

Many shoes, but all one size.
Leaving us with what,
Hobson’s choice?

To make pizza or pancakes.
Tough decision, or
A toss-up?

The road is winding and steep.
Will you walk with me

Our debt’s sixteen trillion going on seventeen

Better beware coz your new health care
Is putting us on the brink

Our debt’s sixteen trillion going on seventeen
No reading between the lines

We are indebted and surely headed
For a dreadful decline

Do we always know what someone means
Is it obvious or do we wonder
Are we sometimes left just a little puzzled
Or does it finally strike like thunder

Evasive tactics can be quite intentional
Not wanting to divulge private info
