War Between The Worlds

The noise, the deafening noise. / A battle rages to my north. / Armies of ships fall to my side, / weighing on my heart for those inside.

i trip the not-so-light-fantastic often / waltzing with my daemon lover / whose bones rattle and shake

This is not my Day

I’m going through somethings / Or should I say / Somethings are going through me / Like accidental baseballs / Collapsing through n…

Bring It On

Born to be abandoned, / the shameful secret that may nor may not / have scarred the soul of some young girl

love among chaos

like a tree uprooted i topple sideways, / crashing to the reality of unforgiving earth.

Letter from Limbo

I will not be fodder for relentless gears that crush romance, / deny the soul, / mock that which should be, if not is.

The Only Key

There is only silence / (My voice is thunder)

The Knot

I’d tried to keep it useful


I’m a man that learns. Flip a finger at the wrong turns. You know exactly where I come from. Looking at you makes my body numb.

Blank Canvas

And then there is a void… / The path is narrow, / while the road is wide / There’s a gate up ahead / and although it is idle, / the sque…

Miss You

never knew that in your eyes was the heaviness and pain of bondage, / Was your ache for heaven so high, that you wanted to touch the sky?

Take all that has come / Embrace all that will be / What is done is done / The rest has yet to be seen
