Premium Member Faded Papers
As faded papers ride the breeze, 
the repo men light cigarettes
and moan about their salaries.
The demolition foreman sets

explosive where I once set plates.
As faded papers ride the breeze,
the council worker designates
exclusion zones, and oversees

photographers and dignitaries -
it’s quite the party...Read More

Premium Member again, just a dream

Lost in the silence where dreams now awaken,
closing my eyes to the stress of the day
Feeling alone and a little forsaken,
wishful these moments that come into play

Wondering if it is imagination,
bringing these thoughts on this evening to me
Something to quell...Read More

Monarchs be gone. I have blue butterflies now.
They listen to my heart and deliver before I ask.

Improving my attitude at every turn

You have to approve yourself first
But that is not complete enough.
Forgiving yourself is the key.

I should have visited my mother more often.
I should have not wasted so many days at the TV set.

Scared of the Dark
I have been scared of the darkness below
The sun glows bright and the wind will blow

My PTSD For You
The inference you sing 
seems like my own life

descriptions of my hell
I wish they would Fade away

of an old Staind shirt
It won't leave my mind

Then you Blow Away...Read More

The Center
At first—I truly believed
that it was You that caused all of this—
this eruption of pain at a time where
I was supposed to be jubilant—happy—
and truly freed from the prison of my pains.

Then I saw that it was not all You—

Jackal and Hyde Pride
Your passionate, unneeded pride...
Is hard to swallow, so I’m waiting for another tomorrow
Going along with the rowdy ride
Still feeling so low…but I must stay high, you know?

How Love Lives
So deep it runs
That it turns on
Each nerve
of mine
Were you here right now
Where would I stop
I wonder 
How love lives
When it cuts
This much!

My heart beats
My blood stabs
My head spins
My nerves tense
I'm dizzy.
Take my oath now
Hide me inside you

The Voices In Her Head
The voices in her head
The voices in her head
Here she lies
Trapped in this place

Till she dies
She is trapped in a deep and dark abyss
This isn’t a fairy tale, she can’t be awakened by true love's kiss
Someone has trapped her there
