So long my love
please do not fret
it's been so long
since love first met,
so oft was told
I listened naught
for I had hoped
love tied what not,
into your heart
trust my being

respect love mien,
naught look behind
but look before
had always known
love did ignore,

Passing Beyond
I’m going to watch you die…
but before I do
I will foretell your story

The story of the White Bird
The Great Mystery
and the Silver Seed

The White Bird carries
in its talons
the Silver Seed of all mankind

A seed that will allow you

Can you come out and play today?
For we are older now and need not fear if we fall in the water.
For no one would dare to say a word
Should we come home with mud in our hair.

Let us once more...Read More

Premium Member Memories of May
When the sun starts to pale in September,
I remember the things we did in May.
Ere our flame became a dying ember,
Hopes were high and our hearts were young and gay.
We didn't stop to think as time flew past
That love cannot...Read More

Filled Up to the Core
I feel empty inside
Don't know exactly why
I just want to hide
Somehow close my eyes and die

Somehow let go and die
I wonder to myself, why?
I feel like a worthless fly
I just feel the need to cry

Sweet, yet bitter and harsh as...Read More

It was beating like it had never done
The blood was rushing through my veins
My temperature was soaring with a rage

The passion inside was about...Read More

When I saw you today, I sensed your deep despair.
You’ve existed so long, in a world without care.
Your hair was a mess, your clothing all torn.
you frantically hid, when the light upon you shone.
You ran from me, fought with me...Read More

Demon King
This world’s home to many demons
The devil is their king
Never will they rest
until this world rots from within
He dwells within your darkness
He plots to block the sun
Adding to the noise
until his voice
is left the only one
He barricades your heart
And overwhelms...Read More

Moments In Love
It’s been so long since I’ve seen you
Even longer since I felt your voice
Whispering in my ear.
I miss the way you made me feel
Whenever you touched me.
Your kisses were so soft
Like down feather pillows.
Your hugs embraced me
Like a winter comforter.

Patrick Ferguson and the battle of Kings Mountain

He rode up to the mountain in great haste
planning vile acts, and much wonton waste.
Hiding, the whigs taunting, scattered about.
They were in waiting, the mountain through out.

Brave volunteers were on the docket.

Emily, if we could have met,
I don't suppose I would forget
How very awkward it had been,
I can picture thus the scene:
Introvert to introvert,
Apprehensive, stiff and curt,
Neither of us keen on seeing
Another dreaded human being.
What would have happened if
I'd greeted you...Read More

Society's Eyes
Society’s Eyes
by Dylan Williamson

Society sees me
As something I am not
As someone who is to be
In their society until they rot
But not everyone
Wants to be a part
Of what just anyone
Will be in, fast as a dart
Not everyone wants
To be represented by...Read More

Premium Member My heart was February ice
My heart was February ice
Kneeling to barren, cursed winter
Beneath weak, broken sacrifice
White skies cracked, and springtimes splinter

Through seasons youthful, blurry run
My heart was February ice
Unmelted, I defied the sun
My coins too few for water's price

Austere solitude must suffice
So long, I...Read More

He was eastern born in a small town.
And loved being out in the wild.
He fished, hunted, could track a deer down.
At the end of a good hunt, he just smiled.

But there was something not quite right.
A place inside he couldn't...Read More

Forever Forgive Me
Forever forgive me
For my one and only iniquity
Please forgive me
With forbearance eternally

Lots of anger and lust

While the World, oh no, it tumbles ‘round us

Demanding us ‘Solve all’, we become united
Without asking, pray how we’ll ever pay.

Old Man Winter dons his
best sapphire blue, 
lavender suit
while Mother Nature
dresses in her finest
lace gown.

The splendor of 
crystalline trees provide
a curtained backdrop
for their dance.
The stars strobe to
the music of the ethers;
this is winter bliss.

Such a night 
so long ago
when celestials

Tears want to come out
