Deep down inside you knew I've been dying
Im honest with you, I'm not even lying

I loved your face, I loved your laugh

Premium Member After the Pub Crawl
The glass was half empty until he smashed it on the room divider

		Tequila Sunrise on the wall

Shattered the pieces lay on the ground when he walked on his shards

		Barefoot floored surrender

A bitter taste of guilt as he wretched his way...Read More

Pickled ham and pickled beef
Cause weak stomachs too much grief


Did you know they pickle cherries
Grandma ate some; said three Hail Marys

Do not try this with wet potatoes


Russians all swear by pickled herring
Grate in radish and...Read More

And there are no more fish left to eat

Since the water turned into blood

If I could go back in time,

Beside you forever and always is where I'll ever be.

Time to Forgive

around your neck that weighs you

Why didn't you care
Words hurt 
They can trip me up
Whilst leaving me to
Pick up the last of 
My pride
Over time I have become
Used to the hatred and
To the lies
But that doesn’t mean 
That I wasn’t still 
Affected by them
Once these words were said

And He Cried
In front of impending disaster

He stood there

Right beside the operation theater

Watching his parents

Going mad with pain

A thousand thoughts were flowing in his mind

What would happen if his brother couldn’t survive

The doors get opened

What he feared the most just happened

In the Valley
In the valley where
Life is lived as intended
Happiness is widespread
As far as any eye can see.
Joy and love reign
As peace and blessings
Fall from above.
Minor disagreements though
Few and far between,
Met with acceptance and
Understanding are 
Respectfully resolved with
Knowledge and equality
For the good...Read More

Dear Suicide

If you were standing with me,
as in a person or a thing.
I’d beat you, 
and I don’t just mean to win.
I’d beat you till you begged me,

Until your bones broke through your skin,...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.

Whenever you touched me.
Your kisses were so soft
Like down feather pillows.
Your hugs embraced me
Like a winter comforter.

His Masterpiece
I was born
A diamond in the rough
I am poetry in motion
Riddled with imperfections but
Flawlessly and wonderfully made
In the eyes of our Master,
A piece made in His likeness.
How I came to be
Dates back to the beginning
Of an eternity.
I have coarse hair
