Eyes To FreeStuck in betweena war and a war.Another deep inhalebefore another roar.They'll come from the North,from the South,and the East,conveying their message.Their way as "The Passage".For certain, they can't say,but my priestnever called me a b...

The Twenty-fourthThe day is very dark.Heat without the sun.The night’s artificial light.Got all the answers right.Ignored the simple truth.Her love has passed my own.Far beyond what I can grasp.I can’t feel her anymore.I know she spoke the truth.She...

RootsGhosts from the sidelinesare pointing at you.Minds that bear evil,they tell you what to do. During day,in the darkness,on the land,in the sea,and through air,all their deeds go unnoticed.One can only prepare. For the fire that is comingfrom the...

AdieuAs useful as a rotten egg.A subservient verbal punching bag.Tonight we said goodbye for good.Dishonesty and fright withstood.No more tears during dazzling nights.No making up after epic fights.In the dark, I see just who I am:a clown, padding, a...
