what used to hurt me
what used to scare me
what used to make me curl up on the floor
shaking to my very core
I am constantly afraid that one day
I will come face to face with my mistakes
a tableau of painful regrets and aches
the times I said I couldn’t when I could
the times I said I wouldn’t when I would
the past stil...

He fools everyone
and I fool myself
in my secret life.
Makeup hides the bruises
in my secret life.
in my secret life.
I smile, laugh, cry, drink
the pain away
in my secret life.
Food fills the gaps of despair
in my secret life.
I pray for salvation
in my secret life.
Hope for a better tommorow remains
in my secret life.

Hail to the beautiful people...
who smile in the face of adversity,
overcome their demons,
make their dreams come true,
lend a helping hand,
make the world a better place,
give us hope for a brighter future,
make us feel young again...
We salute you,
look up to you,
want to be you,

In the distance,
I see you with blinding hope,
Not knowing if you are a mirage,
Or if I will ever reach you.
Amongst the darkness,
I keep walking towards you,
A flickering light calling my name,
The promise of a silver lining.

When I am hit by the whip of melancholy
It makes me forget how to be jolly
It brings on great impatience and agitation
With anxiety and huge frustration.
Often it can really get too much,
And on my sanity I strive to clutch.
Sometimes I might even find it hard to think,
And from thought to thought I cannot link.
I cannot get my mind in gear,
And all around me I may not s...

If one should get right up to death's very brink
This is the time to stop and think
'Shall I stay alive or shall I die?'
Though there is no one round to hear this cry.
We are not crazy, bad or weak.
Only to end our pains is what we seek.
Oft we keep these troubles to ourselves
For we feel that no one can be of help.
But whatever there might be ahead
We cannot m...

a sunflower smile

O romance becomes my companion when I find myself alone,
It comforts me and then warms me and puts me in a special zone.
It can make me feel that someone else is there.
Someone who does understand and who does care.
Whether it be through wonderful music or lovely words.
My feelings can then be seen or heard.
It may bring me calm and it takes aggression.
And it echos my se...

No, there does not exist a perfect person
Or a perfect scheme of life,
And there is no path all smooth to travel,
With all happiness and with no strife.
And while cannot turn back time
We may amend our mistakes
And we can then learn of them
No matter how long it may take.
So patience must be our lifelong guide,
And not to dwell into despair
And not spend our...

O karma will always prevail
Although it may take many years
Then it shall be understood
Why you cried those tears
So in time one shall receive
Just exactly what one should
And be seen for what you are
Whether it be bad or good
And even in your darkest hours
Know ahead of you shall be light
So if you want to challenge life
Don't give up without a fight

I never like to be ANGRY as it is an awful feeling.
As often we do regretful things when all tempers hit the ceiling.
Because after that YOU might be the one who ends up getting blamed!
And then it may be YOU who feels the GUILT or SHAME!
I never like to feel BORED and have all my interests unoccupied.
Where we find we cannot doing anything whether we have or haven'...

Via the phone
When I heard your voice
Having a friendly tone--
At long last you have won--
My diffidence and anxiety gone
An electrifying ecstasy
Charged my heart's zone,
Who fate was
To ceaselessly lament and moan.
The vein inundating feeling
You evoked, anon,
Percolated down to every bone
To each love thirst

In this world are we all different
Or are we all the same?
Don't we all deserve to have respect
And the right to have a name?
Do we not all have feelings?
Do we not all breath the same air?
Don't we all enjoy the same weather
In this world that we all share?
Do we not all have the right to be safe
And the right to feel secure?
And should this all last just f...

O, they can drive us really mad - our peculiar obsessions.
Are you cleaning all the time or are you buying too many possessions?
Or perhaps you are being miserly and keeping all of your savings.
Or may be you need to do or see something in order to satisfy your cravings.
Is your obsession so odd that no one else can understand?
Has it taken such a hold that it is getting o...

Depression is the loneliest place.
It is full of awful and terrible frustration.
We hate everything (ourselves as well)
And gone is each idea and sensation.
Depression is being trapped in a dark cave,
And only outside exists light.
All black is everywhere we turn
And there seems no end to it in sight.
Depression is to have a body of lead
That we must carry wher...

On this icy night
I look to the stars
And teary eyes
To the heavens
The chill in my veins
Filled with hope
I still believe
I will love again

The treatment of doom
leaves me left in the gloom
of a day badly spent
and a life cruelly rent.
A storm cloud burst,
a lightening bolt cursed,
by night my demise,
by light I surmise.
So, so little I know
eyes turned down below.
Then, a glance to the skies
and I see my great prize,
the sun it does shines
and on beauty it dines,
the colour of summer

It’s been 18 months since my stroke. I have improved so much but life still has many challenges everyday. I am still developing my writing using assisted technology.
I had a stroke
I am not a stroke victim
I am not a stroke survivor
I am me
I am a writer
I can’t hold a pen
It’s hard to tell my story
I will know when
I am proud
It doesn’t stand in...

You ask if I believe in God...
How can I not?
To deny my Father
means I leave my existence
to some 30 year old predator
who impregnated a girl half his age
and left her to raise their child
in the wilderness, among wolves
that feed on loneliness and despair.
Without my Father, I would never know
that after suffering comes deliverance,
pain leads to compassion,
forgiveness breaks b...

Money is the soul to reach a goal
It is the tool to play a role
But if you're miser or a poor
No way to live happy and cool
Luck is the wing across future
but work is the core of the creature
To be strong even no wing
Keep your effort to win the venture
Poor & rich, should also search
Money everywhere, we must fetch
the only lazy .. also crazy
Forever, no goa...

No need to go to Theater
Today is the end of the show
I wrote you final letter
Actor decided to go
No need to read my poem
Nothing else in the mail
To save you of bad clime
My heart, began to fail
I hope you get my point
I wish you can get me
I'm sure the Nancy Theater
Closed. Do you agree?

It’s sufficient to briefly touch silence to feel days of glory,
the eternal word of friendship,
the chimes of freedom
It’s sufficient to lean between blue seas
to perceive the sweet semblance of calm,
the lost and aged dreams,
the future that you can imagine,
the language of love and peace
It’s sufficient to forgive and the good is understood

I was having a dark day feeling very negative I gazed out of the window and looked to the sky then Cadence came to me. I hope you share in my thoughts when you realise how beautiful things can truly be at a base level.
can you hear it? that natural cadence?
that bird song disturbing the silence
so busy so dizzy a thousand trills
gazing up to the blue sky
whirling and divin...

Is it a Curse .. or God's Grace
To live alone heart and place
Suffering what I always face
Hopeless to be myself again
Are these changes good for me
To be lonely always or not to be
To live away of what I see
I lost my hope and brain
Sadly to wake up and sleep
Painful to feel yourself cheap
Living alone hurts in deep
I wish to know why, but in va...

a sigh is leaving me
I can concentrate now, finally
a statue standing on the jetty
the lake’s slow wash below the boards
I feel freer now than ever
more than I did back there
I don’t know how you toil on
those boiling days below the city
tinned-life crammed searching for air
You wrote of the love you found
that you always dreamed was waiting
head cocked ...

Be happy with what you have
Then you will have what you hope
Firmly, work and save
Simply, you reach the top
It depends on you more
Than a reason or a cause
Not because rich and poor
Your brain, how much knows
Do believe in God's Judging
And gain your thought results
God never asks a jumbling
But to be aware of the facts

As libations enter my heart,
I feel nothing but cold dark space.
When I think of where we are now,
All I see is a tenantless void.
The only thing I crave is a thought;
Just a simple acknowledgement.
All I want is the hope that you’ll give yourself to me.
So prey upon my flesh
And consume it for your pleasure.
All I want is to wander
In this wonderland of hate.

Super Snow Moon tell us
the secrets you keep
when you orbit earth
as we sleep.
Tell us it is
an optical illusion
adding to our mass confusion.
Tell us of war and peace,
famine and feast.
Tell us please...
How are we so different
when it's the same moon we see?
Oh Supermoon, how we hunger for
your guiding light from above
to fill us with w...

Are you sure you want to know
the story behind my sad eyes?
Can you handle truth
buried in lies?
left for dead.
Still, I raise my
Hoping against all odds
for love and a warm bed.

At the end of everything
Some results come to gain
Thus, you can get experience
How to deal with same again
Don't think, it was so difficult
Just use your own brain
Be ready for every possible
Don't tell me "but in vain"
If you can say "I decide it"
The desert turns green
Then you'll exert success
Surely will forget the pain

The sweet midnight falling,
Windows swaying beneath the hefty breeze,
Shadows mourning for young hearts.
Wallowing falls upon deaf shoulders,
Shadows stand beneath their heavy trenches,
Mourning the dying stars.
Forever to sit in muddied waters,
Is one but a shadowed man,
Set up the walls and set fire to the mountains,

I saw my future before my eyes for the first time in my life
It wasnt just ideas but plans with who I
pictured my wife
The mother of my children and my partner
But I lost it
It was almost here and gone in a moment
It felt so good but now there's pain and I
Started to slip away so I desperately tried
to hold it
But now it's gone
Was it my fault? I'...

Those few seconds before the new year
when the countdown begins,
my soul soars with so much hope and joy.
When the ball drops at Times Square,
there is a momentary
return to innocence.
As the confetti flies and music fills the air,
I imagine we are a world at peace...
no worries, no violence, no division,
just a few beautiful seconds of clarity and simplicity
