Finding a Fool (Me)I found a shining jewel
Deep inside your heart
It was buried in the dark
But I manage to find that precious thing
Happiness is such a strange thing
To be found in the most unexpected places
So the dream passed you by
A new ones just waiting for you to get up
I’ve been meaning to ask
Did you find your friend?
You were away for so long
I almost forgot why you left
Oh, I feel like such a fool
I know I need not say a thing
But when such a thing happens
It’s hard not to feel sad
They gave you a present
Precious such things are
Hold it dearly my friend
Not so, that you go mad
Jewels are everywhere
Blind to many we are
Poignant nostalgia is hard
In it though, can come happiness
For a future, unsure
Not so anymore
Tell me from your mind
Did it really feel like you were blind?
Notes of ForgivenessTelling them wisely
Telling them strangely
Telling them without hesitation
Linked to the past
Linked To Tomorrow
Linked to nowhere
Nowhere but home
Dared into a decision
Dared into a future
Dared into a hope
Hope that can be shattered
Hope for love
Love for hope
If You Don't Mind Me (This Way Forever)You look so beautiful in the moonlight
I’m sick of being stuck in limbo
Just grab ahold of me tight
And we’ll face the day tomorrow
If it is only love, if it’s only
Then why do I care so much
If I’m left to be so lonely
Longing for one friendly touch
If I am so beautiful
Why can’t anyone look at me?
Are you telling a fable?
Aren’t words spent cheaply?
You say I’m so wonderful,
How do you know?
Am I really such a jewel?
A diamond in the unknown…
I’m just glad I have you in my life
You hold the personal demons at bay
I thought I was such a lowlife
With you, there was no need to pray
Every day is like a fantasy screenplay
I hope this is not merely a sad dream
This feeling of the freedom of endless roadway
Please, no more false morphine
I don’t think I could handle if this happiness
If all of this was delusion, some sort of sickness
I just know it can't be
Good Day, Sunny DayLoving yourself is hard enough to do
Why would I try and curse you
To try and love someone else
But that is just my own view
Love with your whole heart
As long as it’s true
You’ll always love yourself
Everyday feels brand new
Just hold me a little closer
A little bit tighter
Tell me it’s alright
The sun is too bright
If I could sing for you, I would
I can’t really dance, but if I could
The only proof I find are in my words
Those are my only truths
Hello new love, how are you
Hello old love, nice to see you
It’s a beautiful day
Let’s go play in the sunny rays
To Be YoungTurn away from me
Sweet love of mine
I don’t deserve your smile
Or a moment of your glance
I was crazy to forget you
Crazy still, about you
I can’t forgive myself
SO why should you
Your hand on my lower back
My arm wrapped around you
Barely a word spoken
Unease fills the silence
Words we failed to say
In the company of friends
Emotions left unexpressed
The void inside us remains unfilled
Hallow words are exchanged
As I walk away to find a friend
A young girl say hello
As I leave the building
To be young again,
I would still be alone
I know this to be true
Cause I wouldn’t change a thing
Hedgehogs DilemmaEarly this morning, I woke up to find
Myself in a position I’ve never been before
It’s such a strange feeling to have
To not know what I should do
I opened my front door, and looked outside
To see who has such a loud snore
It’s my best friend, asking for some salve
It was then I noticed the tattoo
So I opened my medicine cabinet
Grabbed the salve, and returned to my troubled friend
I started rubbing the salve on the tattoo softly
And I heard the sleepy-head’s sigh of relief
With that my mind was set
I went to make breakfast, for when they woke from their makeshift bed
Who knew that such a thing ran through me so deeply
I thought I had lost my belief
Midnight RendezvousAs he walked through his front door; suit jacket over his shoulder, tie and collar undone, and a cigarette dangling from his mouth, he knew someone else was in the room. “You might as well come out, I know you are there.” And to his surprise they showed themselves. “Well this is a shocker…” and not just because they showed themselves, but because it was a young woman. At around 5’6”, an accentuating red dress on, dirty blond hair, and blues eyes like an ocean you could get lost in he couldn’t believe she was the one.
“What gave me away?” she said with a gentle smile on her face. “The carpet was wet and it stopped raining at least 45 minutes ago.” so she had been there a while. “Oh, I was so worried about myself I must have forgotten. I guess you can’t always be perfect can you.” “No, I guess no one can…” he said as he took a long drag off his cigarette. “Care for a drink?
Memories, Future, LifeI thought I had the answers
To those reasons why
Choosing is not the luxury of beggars
Please, allow me to say hi
I didn’t want to let go
Of all the memories the past had given
But how could I know
The past kept me from being driven
Memories, of love long ago
Friends found, and friends let go
Memories, you’ll always cherish
And those memories that seem to parish
I suppose it doesn’t matter anymore
The matters of my mind are sometimes fleeting
My ramblings are mostly made to ignore
Even if my mind and heart are aching
Future, spreading out before me
A maze of choices, far as I can see
Future, unknown like never before
So much is known, yet so unsure
Look into my eyes
And tell me what you see
My best friend looks and she cries
My ex looks and sees a desperate plea
It’s the same thing every day
Nothing changes anymore
There is not much left to say
Except it is starting to become a bore
Life, it never really stops moving
Even if you find yourself grieving
Morning InsomniaI’m slowly losing my mind
But it doesn't matter
I need to treat myself better
But truly, who really cares
I want to be loved
But who would love me
I’d like to be held
But who would share their arms with me
I need a kind word
But there are no words to be shared
I need just a smile
But there are no faces to be found

that's part of life,
all things eventually wilt,
death - an inevitable event.
a girl bullied for who she is
was found (almost) dead in her
own room, her life
hanging on by a thread
while her body
hung on a noose
that was tightly knotted
with hate and self-pity;
why must the bullying continue
after all this time?

death crawls up walls,
waiting at every turn.
death sings a taunting
lullaby, hoping to lure
its victims into a pit.
death doesn't care
whether your pain was
self-inflicted or caused
death craves your soul,
not your body.
life gives you one chance
use it wisely.

I don't know when I stopped using capitals in my writing
Or when I stopped talking as much
I dyed my hair because I was trying to show you
That I didn't have to show you anything
I told myself to stop writing poems about you
As if the days I spend locked in your ice cold glare
Was something I could escape
My mother still screams at night
She has the worst nightmares I've ever heard
And I think I might be going down the same route
I keep telling myself to breathe
That it is okay, and I will be okay
We were never okay
and despite myself, i've noticed it
you don't look at me anymore
Moriah JeanShe was soft and warm.
She was stone-cold.
I watched her, the strength in her
spine, the height in her shoulders,
the wave of ebony silk cascading over her
back - there was an unmistakable air.
But that skin, tight and smooth,
pulled over round hips, curved along
the concave of her stomach, crested
over her breast- a desert landscape.
She was sharp and round in all the

Untouchable, but for that treasured
moment of welcome, that break in
tension, that upturning of lips, pink
The knowing glance, the wanting look,
the low eyes, so dark, framed by sharp
lines and light- they placed her on a
pedestal, but she bent down with out-
She was not a goddess. She was polished
and coy, she was music - a symphony,
and sometimes, the cymbals crashed;
But she knew she was beautiful, and
she knew her strength was in the way
she let the music

The Ramblings of a Frozen SoulIt is cold
My fingertips are the most repulsive shade of blue
And my feet linger within the vile chambers of my stomach
Desperation led to this
Fueled by madness
I would be walking out of the cave...
...Had I had the limbs to carry me there
It is cold
Too cold to even scream
But you know...
I do still miss her
The girl who used to be the thing known as my love
Or at least I miss the part of her that was... "alive"
She's still with me
I talk to her frequently
I remember just recently I asked if she'd marry me
She's still thinking about it
Within the chamber that she is suspended in
Sometimes, I wonder if maybe she can't see me
Sometimes I wonder if,
Even though her eyes are open,
She can't see through what's supposed to be a two-way window
Sometimes I think I'm talking through a one-way window
...I really hope I'm not.
Even though she's encased behind the ice
Even though I've lost all feeling
I still "feel" warm when I'm with her

A Sirens Song.A slight breeze ruffled plumes attached onto an appendage.
We have searched so far...
Irritation could be seen within smiles.
For so long…
Six eyes watched as the flare from the Sun snuffed itself,
Cursed with feathers…
beyond the horizon.
Adorned to bone…
A breath of lethargy was passed through the group.
Our bodies grow tired…
Heaviness hung in the air.
Too weary to fly…
Darkness was descending.
Enduring days upon rocks…
Anticipation was setting in.
On a tiny isle…
There, within the distance, a slight dot.
A distinct vessel, traveling at a fast speed.
The winds carried to them the shouts of some...
Licking lips in excitement of the approaching storm.
Liners catch reefs, steering it towards their archipelago…
Three heads look towards the sky.
Lives are lo
I am everywhere
I am everything
I am your world
I am your voice
I speak in your blood
I sing in your tar
I am your lungs
I breathe your suffering
I contract your tears
I am your past
I recollect your misery
I predict your end
I am your friend
I embrace you with sickness
I deliver you from happiness
I am your everything
I am your only love
You. Need. Me
You. Can. Never. Escape. Me
The sun is fading on the horizon
Darkness is filling the air around
Although the dark is not what it used to be
The light is not quite the same either
Fading whispers in the wind
Hide any form of meaning
Echoes surround my body
While the Julius river drifts slowly by
Soaring spirits sing above me
As rays of sunshine find my face
Like the last time I was here
I'm surrounded on all sides
Yet still so all alone
Leaves are falling slowly
While the bugs all dance around
And cause many ripples
In that slow drifting Julius river
What does it mean
To feel so all alone
Is it just a silence in your mind
Or when your feels so cold
My feet are getting tired
I think they need a rest now
I think they want to soak
In that soothing Julius river
The crow keeps on cawing
Out some crazy tale
My youthful in exuberance
Can't bear to hear again
The wind has started blowing
I'll take it as a sign to leave
As I glide down, the Julius river
