The Yellow Design of Love

The yellow design of love
Lost and forgotten
Words given new meaning
Reality,  never alone
Foresaken truth
A youth divided
Her decisions unknown
Where does she go from here?

When the passion settles
In it's absence,  ash
Memory engraved
His loves remains
Unintentional freedom

September's Dawn

A shocking September dawn
Loss foreseen
Imagination, running riot!!
A pain realized
Heard by all
The reflection of red runs deep


Through my veins
Red forever
Pouring agony; defeit
This day, this September dawn
Her beauty fades....

Disease

Throbbing, sore
The recollection of a damaged soul
These four walls hold my shadow
Relentlessly entering
Her mind, tortured, riddled
Decaying, I mold

In an instant, she returns....
Anew, im back
Through my tunnel, revived
That familiar temporary release
The feeling, electric!

Bryan's Eye's

The golden age of both time and space
Between the lines of hate
You're beauty, always embraced
Force feeding loving memories
I swallow, letting go

Remembering his eyes
The eyes of promise, dissolution
He leaves, always, forever
My love, alone but for a second
Blue and brown, the description
Of my past, beloved

she remembers

As a young girl, she remembers the 
anguish
Mother and father, a youth divided
A child, shattered
Pain re-lived, never forgotten
Some say..."she was too young to 
remember, dont worry"
Well, im here now
Seething...."I do remember; ive lived my 
whole life trying to forget"
Eternally diseased, always denied


I sat, that day, on the top of those stairs
Damaged, broken, changed
A little girl, ripped from her mothers 
embrace
Infinite loss
Devine...

Perfection

Walking, running
Strange sensations felt 
Breeze undeniable
The night, a perfect black
She weeps longingly
Striving to become...
The woman she will never be
Changing forever

Bella

The controlled pageantry
The longing; natural, pure
She waits, wondering
When will he know?
Maybe, on his own
The truth revealed as he lay, breathless
Undeniable fear
He remains sickened by her truth
Wanting purity, hes a glimmer
Engorged, filthy she sighs
In the end, bella...
