I gaze upon the night sky, but seek no stars.
For, I have already found them in your baby blues.

Those Sapphires stare into my being and remind me of home.
They take me to a place I thought long gone.

To a place I thought only existed in Fairy Tales.
If you'd have me, I am yours...

For you and the dream of us, I'd spend every moment building our Happily Ever After.

You'd never have to doubt me or my intentions because whenever my eyes fall upon you, my smile never fades.

I've seen Heaven through the eyes of an Angel and that Angel is mine.
To be forever hers, I'd leave this pride behind.

This is but a paragraph in our story and I promise you, Angel Eyes...
That there is a such thing as Happily Ever After.
She is amazing.

Have you ever spotted a smile;
That makes you stop for awhile?

And then you really stop to listen;
Almost hearing their beauty glisten...

It's that kind of smile that stays with you.
The one you dream about when the day is through.

Brings back memories of being a kid.
Ignorant in our innocence, with all the things we did.

The first time we ever had a lolipop,
Or the long summer days we wished would never stop.

Growing up... Was such a drag,
Drowning in all the things that made us mad.

From our eyes, waves became tears.
And our hearts were broken a few times over the years.

But the one thing that'll always make me smile...
Is when I stop and think about you for awhile.

The smile that sat upon an adorable face,
With eyes that could make a man lost in all their grace.

I'd do anything to keep you smiling forever.
This fool would never let it go... Nope...
Never Never.
She is too cute, you know?

You were the Friend I should have met long ago...
Back before I had to ask myself "Why?"
Before I was broken and used.

Perhaps, we could have saved each other from that Fate.
On those stormy nights when the very Earth seemed to hate us,
I would have been there.
During those times the tears fell from an infinite source,
You could have been there.

Now, we've grown and our innocence isn't what it once was.
Still, I'd take your hand and walk into that vast meadow that once was a dream of a young boy.
With the Sun on our backs and the breeze kissing our faces, we'd know no struggle.

The torment of our daily routine would simply fade away as we waded across the golden sea towards ever after.

Now, we are Free...

Free to live as humans and not as a number or a prize to be had.
My voice would be the song that sang your praise,
my arms would be the castle that you lay claim,
and my promise would silence the yearning to be wanted.

With each passing step, I will be there.
With each passing day, I will be there.

My Dear Friend... You were the person I should have met so very long ago.
Hope. It's all we have.

Sometimes, when I'm alone at night,
I peer through my window-
To gaze upon yonder Star Light.

Your gentle rays, a kiss on my face.
The light you share, the guiding torch in my dark place.

I sat and I pondered.
How it was I came to be,
lost in my mind, insanity wandered.

The days grow short,
with the darkness growing near.
But I do not worry,
for you always whisper in the breeze,
sweet serenity in my ears.

I'd go to you if only I could.
Across land, sea, and air,
amongst the stars, you know I would.

There, our loving constellation would stay.
To remind the world of happiness,
To keep love in each and every day.

My eyes begin to shut as sleep takes me away,
off to the Dreamland...
But in your gaze, I will stay.

Thank you.
For my Dear friend, Bethany. You are a good person and a bright soul. I wish you all the good fortune this world has to offer and can't wait to see you.

A boy,
born of dirt and ash,
walks not alone in the shadows.

For he is accompanied by a heightened sense,
for who is to become, and for who he must destroy.

Lies spill forth from the mouths of those branded "Slaves."
Slaves to the Serpent riddled box they so desperately cling to.

His vision falls on the subjective view of right and wrong,
Good and Evil,
Just and Unjust.

Reality shattered by the sight of hungry mouths never to be fed,
Greedy hands that take, never to be sated,
and of the Love never to be had.

Put aside your pride, boy.
Fall the farthest you have ever fallen.
Then and only then, may you break into a million pieces.

From the ash of your misguided life,
you may rebuild yourself into more than a mere man.

From the shadows,
A King Rises.
I am the last enemy that shall be destroyed. Then, may I reign forever.

I was supposed to die on the Battlefield.
To be shipped off and fight for a Country that didn't want me,
there could be no greater honor.

Now, My nights are filled with short sleep and tall bottles.
Each day, blurrier than the last.
Women come and go,
never to be truly "Loved."

I write melancholy across cold keys,
post with cold eyes,
and entertain cold souls.

I want to scream...

To write a list of all things that I could say,
without ego,
that I truly "Hate."

Future ripped away by a man whose job it was;
To just say "No..."

Travelled to the top of the world, seeing the Northern lights,
suffering the bitter cold...
The starving nights,
feverish frights,
and never-ending verbal fights.

For what?

The paper that would allow me to fly...
Like a bird, far away.
To a woman who claimed to hold "Love."

Now, I'm back home.
Thousands of miles back home.
Staring at this blue moon in my eye.

Before I die alone,
Let me have Vengeance.
One can never truly understand the story of another. The Post Traumatic Stress that is brought on by even a song that brings us back to a place we were truly hurt.

We Crave attention from those who'll never give it,
acceptance from a Society that doesn't know it,
and Love from creatures built for Hate.

I ask you, Who is at fault?

A ******* Pup, no home to call his own.
Wandering the Wood, singing a lonely Song.
He howls at the Moon, whispers on the Wind.
His eyes watch, wondering who She will send.
Mother Nature is kind, but fearsome in her own right.
Day after Day, Night after Night.
The Pup forgets how to Love, but learns how to Fight.
His eyes no longer care, and only his Hunger grows.
Until that day that He met Her, and in that moment, He was Home.
Her voice was gentle, Her touch was Pure.
But this Pup was worried, this Pup was Unsure.
His past made him Undeserving, and he thought this, True.
So, the Pup made it clear, She and Him were Through.
Regretful nights followed, as the Pup lay Wake.
His broken heart shattered, how much more could it Take?
When the Pup returned to his loving Friend,
She exclaimed that she wouldn't return...
For, She knew how it would End.
Life is complicated, but... Isn't it always So?
If we can not break Free, how would we ever Know?
The Pup feels nothing but Shame,
Everything He has would gladly lay down his Claim.
To show the Girl that He was Wrong.
For Hope that once more, They'll both Sing to the Moon, their Song.
Get well soon, Snips. This Pup is tired of being a Lonesome Wolf.
