Malaise in My Heart
There is a void in the hollow of my breast
where once my heart beat, undeterred
It flurries now in lethargic rhythm 
quelling emotions its never repressed
unraveling its three-fold cord of silken threads. 

I never imagined they would come unbraided

Premium Member Do What Is Right
We should try to do what is right.
Having the strength to fight.
Not ever doing it for spite.
But intending to shed some light.
Upon shadows in the night.
That hide the truth from sight.
Knowing we must hold on tight.
If we do, oneday we...Read More

Premium Member Hands laid bare

Interlaced fingers, 
palm against palm,
warmth and tenderness emanate…

Love and affection 
abound within the clasp.

Inch by Inch

And love by its surrender
in its power play
may come to break its scaffold
from your heart

Inch by inch 
and by love
they are picked apart
and then to the bare bones of love
reduced to silence
and seen by sufferance
all their weakness
and how it makes...Read More

My Heart Cries
~My Heart Cries~

Darkness welcomes me 
So I fall into its 
liquid ebony night
Drowning in its

The unknown is quiet 
with it's unspoken words
Holding a calmness that's 
terrifying in a beautiful way
Only adding to secrets
