Hands
My hands do indeed,
They show no secrets,
Scars and cuts,
Tough skin.

They show no secrets,
These hands of mine,
Tough skin,
Along the palm.

These hands of mine,
Scars and cuts,
Along the palm,
My hands do indeed....

Raining on my insanity
You faded too soon
Gone to the moon
A holiday for you
Now what am I to do
Gone to the moon
Lost without you
Now what am I to do
A frosted complexion 
Lost without you
A holiday for you
A frosted complexion
You faded too soon

Quiet the ghost
Beware of the ghost,
Dangerous and dark,
stay away from its grip,
Don't let it swallow you,
Protect your peace,
Take the help of angelic thoughts,
stay positive and motivating,
Scare the ghost away
Quiet the deadly thoughts(ghost) in mind

Pieces
Promises are meant to be broken
Like humans to ash
Like castles to sand 
And ice to water

Like humans to ash 
Like music to a song
and ice to water
Like answer to a prayer

Like music to a song 
Like castles to sand
Like answer to a prayer
Promises are meant to be broken

Eyes
Eyes are beautiful
They come in many colors
They are round
It is part of the body

They come in many colors
Blue, brown, black
It is part of the body
Without them you will be blind

Blue, brown, black
They are round
Without them you will be blind
Eyes are beautiful

Lost in a dream
She's lost in a naked dream
Barring all to see
With each key stroke
Undressing all of me

Barring all to see
Reveling vulnerability 
Undressing all of me
Stings so painstakingly

Revealing vulnerability
With each key stroke
Stings so painstakingly 
She's lost in a naked dream

Lay

Divine Nature
Frozen and numb
Dwelling in my cold shadows
Shivering me deeply inside
A devil I am
Finding solace In Hell
Where Love is Evilly Blind

Melted and burnt
Relaxing in my warm flames
Comforting me deeply inside
A god I am
Finding solace in Heaven
Where Evil Is Lovingly Divine...

morning sickness
waking up, feeling sick 
again and again
when will these feelings end?
i’m so tired of this

again and again
the day seems too long
i’m so tired of this
i just want to stop

the day seems too long
when will these feelings end?
i just want to stop
waking up, feeling sick

Gonna Get High 2
Now that I finally got high
I no longer have to watch the birds in the sky
Now I'm gonna fly, so say goodbye
Oh birds in the sky

As I'm swooping by
Through the night
Higher than a kite
Oh my teary eyes

Say goodbye
Cause now I'm high
The sky is ever nigh,
Because I got high...

Premium Member Children Are Seen
Children are seen
Not heard.
Mother was our go between.
How absurd.
Not a word
To me this was extreme
Especially since adults were always in 
A herd.
They reigned supreme.
To argue was to blaspheme.
This was real
No matter how dumb it would seem
To adults this was ideal.

I Will Miss You
I will miss you,
If you ever go away.
Whenever you say adieu,
I will want you to stay.

If you ever go away,
It is then that I will weep.
I will want you to stay.
Because my love is deep

pantoum
i see you standing there all alone,
i slowly walk up,
picking up speed,
i start to run.

i slowly walk up,
to you at the top of the hill,
picking up speed,
to get to you faster.

to you at the top of the hill,
picking up speed,
to get to you faster,
i see you standing there all alone....

Story of us
Our story echoes
Written all over a book
Inked throughout the pages
Depicted in the lullabies

Written all over a book
Indelible fragile secrets
Depicted in lullabies 
Harmony of yin and yang

Indelible fragile secrets
Inked throughout the pages
Harmony of yin and yang
Our story echoes

Because evil lies before us
Because evil lies before us
Death is near
Good is running away
Evil is mankind and good is the superior being
Death is near
Life is absent
Evil is mankind and good is the superior being
But why does he run?
Life is absent
Good is running away
But why does he run?
Because evil lies before us...

Silver Lining
Let’s chase the silver lining 
Among the dark clouds
Through the moonbeams
Below the abyss of sea

Among the dark clouds
Where the thunder lies
Below the abyss of sea
Where the monster lurks

Where the thunder lies
Through the moonbeams
Where the monster lurks
Let’s chase the silver lining

Touched by th sunlight
Warmth flooding my core
Resurrected at first sight
Longing for much more

Warmth flooding my core
Just to be very close, touched
Longing for much more
Already I'm blushed

Warmth flooding my core
Resurrected at first sight
Just to be close, touched
Touched by the sunlight

Omega
In a place of standing stones
a mighty beast awakens
Ivory ribcage aglow
fire raging in his belly
a mighty beast awakens
scaled wings flutter
fire rages in his belly
he is Omega the last of his kind
scaled wings flutter
Ivory ribcage aglow
He is omega the last of his kind
In a place of standing stones....

Nature-Pantoum
Fringed by lofty mountains
Pristine lakes serene
Silver sprays of fountains
Forests lush green

Pristine lakes serene
Bathed in moonlight glow
Forests lush green
where meandering rivers flow

Bathed in moonlight glow
Silver sprays of fountain
Where meandering rivers flow
Fringed by lofty mountains.

Looking Death In the Face
Looking Him straight in the face,
I wait for his choice,
To take me or to leave me,
I have no voice,

I wait for his choice,
For better or for worse,
I have no voice,
I will accept His answer,

For better or for worse,
To take me or to leave me,
I will accept His answer,
Looking Him straight in the face....

Sand between my toes.
Along the beach I walk
hand in hand with you.
The world is a beautiful place.

Along the beach I walk
watching the setting sun.
The world is a beautiful place.
Happiness is this beach.

Watching the setting sun
hand and hand with you,
happiness is this beach
and sand between my toes...
