I compose poetry and prose about the disappointments of life; dishonest people we come across; crushed hopes and expectations; the corruption that lies within everyone, but also lighter stuff.

TimeTime is no one's ally.She's always watched,called an illusion,used to heal all wounds,cut up to get a grip.A killer,taking livesevery second of the day,and giving birthto make it all okay.Time is the most precious gift of all.Our only loyal frien...

BroodingAnd your eyes find me.Perfectly timed me.Desperately clingingto what the future is bringing.Hearts ponder. Minds wonder.You're everywhere.Two souls.One pair.Lives mingle."The same old brain."Words hurt.Egos clash.Back to ash.Thoughts hurlthro...

Contrition
