When I’m sad the sun sets and clouds roll in
When I’m sad the world’s cold and grey
When the rain lashes down
With its somber, lonely sound
When I’m sad the worlds not okay

When I’m angry and annoyed the storm rages on
When I’m angry clouds beat on their chest
Sharp light in the skies
Piercing through my closed eyes
When I’m angry I simply can’t rest

When I’m afraid and unsure the darkness descends
When I’m afraid I feel all alone
Black shadows all around
Crawling, slithering sounds
When I’m afraid I’m all on my own

When I’m happy and content the sun shines bright
When I’m happy the meadows will grow
Joy exudes from my heart
Friends never apart
When I’m happy I want all to know

When I’m thrilled the snow falls and blankets the ground
When I’m thrilled the worlds a canvas before me
Snow angels and sledge fun
Building snowmen with everyone
When I’m thrilled it’s like Christmas is upon me

When I’m confused the fog falls and obstructs my view
When I’m confused I can’t see my own thoughts
Lost in my own mind
With no roads and no signs
When I’m confused the worlds merely a blot

For the feelings we all have are never wrong
They change like the weather before us
To get through to the light
We must endure the cold
The storms
and night
For all that we feel makes us, us

Shimmering lights dance in her eyes
Shimmering lights cannot dispel
Like the fire inside my soul
A cold darkness that grasps at my soul
A velvet touch cannot disguise
Persistent beeps, and sanitised smells
Two hearts that yearn to be whole
Infesting a heart that I stole

Beneath the fabric of power and love
Unfaltering floors with a sinister gleam
Sensations fulfil every void
Stare through me with revulsion rejoiced
Two foolish lives surpass and evolve
Machines fall foul with a ghoulish scream
Through a union that can’t be destroyed
All my words collide
Gravity tears inside
All hope, all prayers unvoiced

Shadows retreat from snow filled days
Anaesthetic smiles surround my dreams
Crisp and clean, our futures laid bare
As my heart rips my throat and my core
Eternity whispers, forever always
Abandoned and lost, and torn at the seams
Together; everyday; everywhere.
Alone, broken, defeated, no more

Life is
Life is pure
Life is pure torture
Life is pure torture with you
Love is
Love is freedom
Love is freedom denied
Love is freedom denied by you
Hope is
Hope is eternal
Hope is eternally gone
Hope is eternally gone in you
Death is
Death is coming
Death is coming fast
Death is coming fast for you.

Love is peace
That burns with desire,
The passion can char your soul.
Love is free
And the payment required,
To give and to embrace a soul

Love is blind
It sees into your heart
At the kindness, the beauty within.
Love is hope
That despairs when we part
And yearns for your arms to return

Love is calm
It torments the head
It breaks and it shatters your pride
Love is hard
As it softens instead
The wasteful tears you’ve cried

Love is fire
That quenches your trust
And consumes your body, your mind
Love is wild
As it tames your lust
And fills your heart every time

Love is you
You are all I that I need
Your star shines bright through the day
Love is me
My soul,
it is freed
With your passion burning my way

Love is us
You were worth the wait
With your fingers entwined in mine
Love is us
Our lives steeped in fate
Eternity together,
forever combined

When crowds disappear and the sun never sets
When shadows fall further behind you
When Christmas lights shine like my heart in my chest
Bathed in the splendour, I will find you

As each day breaks and when night shines black
And the stars dance brightly before you
As each touch shivers, the souls of the lost
In the eyes of an angel, I will see you

From the depths of the seas, water embraces the shore
Amidst the blankets of blossoms grown for you
In each whisper of wind, with every leaf swept home
Through the eye of the storm, I will hold you

From every inch of my heart, From every crack in my soul
Seeps my life
weeps my world
I love you

Nothings new
Nothings the same
Nobody yearning
No one to blame
Pretentious thoughts
Relentless smiles
Bloodthirsty thoughts
Sinless flesh defiled
                                                         ­       It hurts
Pointless meetings
Insipid friends
Effusive pretenders
Matching the trend
World keeps turning
Illusions are gone
Within the abyss
The demons belong
                                                          ­ I’m scared
Watching from the shadows
Eyes glazed with sweat and fear
Dripping with anticipation
The reckoning draws ever near
Every muscle turns into venom
Every nerve stabs at my chest
Every breath secretes a wanting
Every inch, every piece, possessed
                                             I want to go home
The darkness elicits it’s own revulsion as the ***** becomes one with the night.
Chaos bleeds its emancipation, as hysteria shrouds the light
Cold metal evokes a black compulsion, that thrives within a mask of desire
Salt water entices the sinister passion
Oozing dreadful love, dank and dire
                        Please. No. Please. No. Please.
A sweet sound fills every moment
Divinity within every touch
Lifetimes pass as stars are reborn
Delightful whimpers destroy the hush
                                               Please. I beg you.
Nothing’s real
Nothing’s fun
Same old morning
Same old sun
Lifeless morning
Worthless day
Deathly palour
Cold and grey
                                                            ­              ...

Hope cannot save what’s forgotten with age
As the moonlight clandestinely shines.
Pieces of souls, washed up on the shores
Laughing gleefully at the passing of time

Abandoned dreams sink beneath the sand
On which fateful footsteps once tread
Years rage on, crashing silently on rocks
Where despair and weakness once led.

Reflections of love rise up from the deep
With the promise of daylights return
Passionate waves. caress the shore
As the darkness ebbs and turns

Blue skies replace the vacuum above
As your eyes fill up all that I know
Future fulfilled in the sea of my heart
As the banks of my joy overflow
