Colors blend in clouds,
The amber sky is glowing,
White stars will soon shine.

I see everything,
I've been where you've been and back,
I know your future.

Quiet waves approach,
Merging with the fallen sun,
The water is calm.

Bite size, yet so big,
Carrying all that is pure,
Soft as a pillow.

Reflections of time,
Floating across the river,
Memories arise.

Beyond the mountains,
Sunlight rests above the clouds,
Hidden by the storm.

When I hold my tongue,
My mind becomes a prison,
For it is there,
That every unsaid word,
Is left to dwell.

I make it a point to get up at odd hours,
While the world sleeps,
For that is when,
The uninterrupted beauty of the universe,
Is mine alone.

When I hesitate,
I think of the warrior,
Moving with reckless rage,
And find meaning in the moment.

If you claim to be like me,
I'll label you a liar,
For I would recognize myself,
In another.

While walking down the seashore,
I came across a broken shell,
And pondered on,
How many pieces of me,
Have been taken away.

Gentle, playful faces,
Dancing slowly in solitude,
In a conflicting world,
I found love standing alone.

The Forest
Endless trees secluded by nature,
Where strength sleeps and birds sing,
I smell life as I pass through its grasp,
And regain the innocence I lost long ago.

Too old to go back,
Too young to go yet,
Perpetual thoughts,
Orbit the mind,
An eternal existence,
Or temporary stay.

Twilight rests on Mother Nature's cheek,
Storm clouds slowly fade away,
Lily pads hold hands in the pond,
Awake, the feared animal begins its prowl,
While the ocean settles its dispute with the sand.

Wilted beauty on fallen leaves,
Life temporarily sustained,
Lying beside the old oak tree,
In frail comfort, still,
Until the blowing wind.

She laughs at his jokes,
The way she laughs at mine,
Does she see him in me,
Or is she blind,
I see her everyday,
Sun up to sun down,
He's away most of the time,
But, now he's around,
They share a past,
We share today,
Is our future stronger,
Than their yesterday,
Only time will tell,
But, I can't wait,
I feel like a fish,
Caught in the bait.

I've hit a half-court shot,
And missed a lay-up,
I've been hired,
And fired,
I've loved and lost,
And lost the love,
I've seen deaths,
And rebirths,
I've tasted a snowflake,
And a ****** lip,
I've seen an underdog triumph,
And a champion dominate,
I've been underestimated,
And overrated,
I've shook a welcoming hand,
And waved a sad goodbye.

Remnants of childhood resurface,
Frostbitten memories begin to thaw,
Anxious heartbeats pound through the skin,
Approaching the steps where I once dwelled.

Thoughts thumping,
Like hail on the windowsill,
Treacherous currents,
Power a sea of sin,
Regret is on the horizon,
As I succumb to temptation,
Too powerful to resist.

Caged emotions,
On crumpled paper,
Painful words,
In faded ink,
A sacred memory,
From a story untold,
Trapped in the mind,
Of a tortured soul.

Hidden oasis in the Garden of Love,
Happiness transcended on the wings of a dove,
Slow streaming waterfalls reflecting sunlight,
A vision of beauty forever kept in your sight,
Great hills and valleys beyond your belief,
Soft waves caress white sand at your feet,
Green grass greener than the eyes can conceive,
Flowers blooming so tall they reach up to your knees,
Clear blue skies filled with the birds song,
Shining stars that sparkle at night by the pond,
Fresh fruit and fine wine at your fingertips,
And for your dreams to come true all you make is a wish.

I've seen you once before,
And instantly I wanted more,
You didn't know my name,
I spilled my drink on you,
You laughed it off and then I knew,
My life was about to change,
I walked you home that night,
It was cold,
And you held me tight,
How could I go away,
We talked everyday since then,
In the morning and evening,
I always knew you'd stay,
You whispered, I do,
I held back the tears,
Said, I do too,
And now you have my name.

Words of Wisdom
I can't offer anything else but free words of wisdom,
So try this on for size,
If you want to do it, do it, don't hesitate for a moment,
Or there's something that you will realize,
If you pass on a chance, that be may be your last,
Even though it might not look that way then,
If you say, I wish I could, and you could, but you don't,
It's not the start you're at but the end,
So when you look back on life be sure to listen,
For that one long hopeless sigh,
If you hear it you'll know you were afraid to fail,
Because triumph begins with a try.

A peaceful soul in agony,
Suppressed memories reappear,
Courage is shown so no one knows,
That perseverance stems from sheer fear,
A warrior's mentality conquers all,
Vengeance is a relentless friend,
Inner peace versus outer rage,
A dual that lasts 'til the bitter end.

Heaven's Kiss
I see you when the sun surrenders to sleep,
And the stars open their eyes like a newborn child,
Beauty pure as the crystal sea that caresses the pebbled shore,
If ever a look could steal a heart, you are my thief,
Just like hands of a clock turning to meet, we are one,
Soft as a lullaby delivered by angels,
Your crimson love pours over me.

One time,
Was all I had,
I knew it,
But, blew it,
She was clueless,
I froze,
And she left,
By what I failed to say,
That day,
Which was,
I love you.

As I close my eyes the sandman appears,
He whispers your name into my ear,
From that moment on I have you again,
With each new beginning having no end,
I pray that night will not give into day,
For that's when the sandman will be on his way,
I spend the rest of my time waiting to see,
What image of you he will bring back to me.

— The End —
