Dusk and Dawn,
Back-Streets and Alleys,
A portrait halfway Drawn,
The center of a Valley.

I like the In-Betweens:
Those things which have begun but not Ended,
Where things are not always what they Seem
And our disbelief is Suspended.

A jagged Mountain grasping for the Clouds,
Not quite there but well into the Sky
Like a prisoner Unbowed,
With a jailor to Defy.

The boring, uneventful Days,
Which alienate and leaves us Whirled.
Manifested, tangible Displays,
Of the Space between the Worlds.

Life is the greatest Halfway,
It’s not so long a Route.
So I will resolve to Stay
To see it all play Out.

I know it seems
Like I'm a
But I'm not;
That's just
My facade for
The real me.

i can't control my feelings
my feelings control me

seemingly i am
the byproduct
of all that burning

You hexed me into a trance,
filling every available crevice
in my body
of what I thought was

I managed to swallow the silk from
your white lies

How dangerously sweet they were

You plucked each thread which
held my songbird heart together,
playing me twice for a fool (shame on me)

Through the rivers and the rain
   My emotions seep

No matter how far I reach
   How quiet I be
      Or how fervently I wish
      For this condensated heart to dry

Beneath stars and moonlight vain
   I stay
      Locked in the garden of perpetual being
         Without your warmth of certain meaning

And when the new morning comes
   With the quiet thought
      I realize what I had always ought

That I cannot seem to make you mine
   Regardless of the place or time

Oh how strange our lives  can be don't think we ever solve all the mysteries of the life that we see and live every day and why life It's self did ever
and to what those reason may be to which I've tried to find  answers throughout my life but at the end of our days when all said
I don't think we will be any the wiser and we won't have all answers to our questions we've been asking throughout our unsure
and to what Is the meaning of life for as sure Hell I don't know for I don't have a clue what Its all about but all of
born to this world the only thing we no for certain Is each day we live we get closer to death and  does anybody out there knows and can tell me what Is the meaning of

I fear I am an wallflower
pianissimo to your fortissimo
head bowed
malleable as clay
shaping my tongue to be silent

You took the beast within and
removed it's claws
it's fangs
any defense it had
I smiled all the while
baring the pink of my gums
the shade of welts
and a soft flowers bloom

To you, I am the wrong note
in a roaring crescendo of a
nevertheless, stirring embers come to rest
in the corners of my mouth
and I like them.

I lay my foot here
On the traces of the side
And follow the floor
As if it is a guide.
It's sort of a game
I like to play with the stone
Whenever I am walking alone.
Maybe they see me
Skipping always twice
And following the sidewalk
In a strange zigzag
But maybe they don't mind.

Stay true to your mind
Inner calm, inner calm
Buckling under pressure
Stay true to yourself
A few minutes
All these questions



Inner calm

It's cold
It's too ******* cold
It's getting worse

What's that?
I think it's the door
I focus on that little worming, niggling voice
In the back of my throat

There's no point.

And to all those days to
all those nights I've been without her
The days pass quite easily I'm always  finding things to help pass the time of
But oh so lonely are my nights laid In bed without her warming body next to
But better to have loved and lost than not to have loved at all but never the less miss her
To all those lonely days and nights that spent without me laid
snuggled Into
But I'll  keep all my dreams and memories for I'm not leaving her, forever In my heart she'll
To dreams Is to where I see her now whenever I fall to sleep for she's forever left In my thoughts you
Together forever that to what we thought we'd be
together with each other, this was always said together forever and
For that was the way It was supposed to be but life doesn't always work out as we would like It
For all those days and all those nights spent alone
but doesn't ever seem right to me
Always felt she was stolen from me unjustly that how I see It be, but I can't change that now far too late but miss her
All those Nights laid awake without her can't sleep somehow will never seem right to me
