The Days

The days run over me like horses… and I wonder if my life will ever change, if the love that I seek will ever find me if my heart will ever be filled again. Their strong and robust legs kick me… and realization kicks in: I may forever travel like a lost soul around the…

If Only

If only it was like before Simple, easy, natural It was like breathing Something that came by instinct. If only it was like once ago So much happiness and love Our thoughts could be shared without penalty Our minds were always the same. A fog has fallen over our love, It swallowed it made it…

Let Me

Let me hold you like a promise a glass one, much more delicate, I will not break it, I know you are not shatter-proof. I will make a home for you in my arms, I will build pillars to support your dreams as you sleep in my embrace at night. Let me keep you like…

Depend On You

Teach me to depend on you a host to a parasite, be my life support be the ground in which my roots grow be the air that I, as a necessity, breathe. Nurture a symbiotic relationship with me be the strong one, I will be the weak protect me under your shadow be the light…

Inner Fight

There it comes, I can hear it calling a fiery need that beckons me to comply burning, aching, wanting. It gallops towards me, flooding my mind blinding judgements that tell me otherwise persistent, insisting and demanding.

Pangea – A duet with J.T. Kade

Your body is a new country Foreign and intriguing Without walls, just a horizon It’s landscapes beckoning me towards it Casting shadows on my skin as I get closer Alluring my senses, seducing my judgement As I fell into your valleys wondering What a taste will do to my own awaiting self Will the touch…

Twenty and Four

Time passes like a coward that runs from its death, trampling over me, marking me with its dirty shoes, each day aging me more and more, like an overused notebook collecting experiences, memories and sadness on my pages. Twenty and four of earth’s years have inhabited this body, they have laid me to bed each night…

Come Solitude

Come solitude sit by my side I don’t want to be alone any more. Be my guest take a seat let’s look at the stars and listen to some music. Come solitude and be my crying shoulder for I have no one else to cry on. The rain has the earth to fall on but…

The Best of Me

Open your eyes and see the real me not the me that has been painted over by others not the imposter that has replaced me over time because I want you to see what I am really like. I am the person that loves to paint with butterflies the one that desires to draw with…

Closed Door

A sliver of light entered the room as the door opened. It brought dust particles in its lingering shine, the door opened slowly as in hesitating to move, and a silhouette appeared piece by piece behind it. First the hand that touched the door frame, then the resting feet that supported their owner. The head…
