Because I can no longer kiss you
no longer feel your skin
beneath my fingers
or hear you in the night
Because I can no longer call you
no longer sound your name
beneath my breath
or hear you whisper soft
Because I could not stop time passing
could not return time's sand
beneath its glass
or heal the wounds of time
Because I could not hold you here
could yet y...

I watch them engrossed in their hand held devices,
The only thought I have is what's the point, What's the point of talking when there's no listening,
Communication is lost to an electronic device.
Likes only feed an ego that should not grow, Comments from strangers that do not stay but go.
Posting and waiting for the above,
This what their life has become.
I watch them slip away into a di...

There is a room where these people go,
All share something in common,
They sit there, pondering,
'Why is this happening to me?'
They could spend hours, days, weeks, months or even years in this room,
These people are not together,
In fact they are all alone,
What do they have in common?

I never lied I never cheated
Never put my hands on it
Her cat the only thing I’m beating
I told you I loved you
I showed you the meaning

I'm just a number,
Put me in the back.
One of these days,
I swear I'll fucking snap.
Always keeping it in,
Forever pushing it down.
One day I'll strike this match
And burn this place to the ground.
Empathy is a curse,
A color I wear well.
I'm sick of always wondering
How other people feel.
I don't take care of myself,
I just bury my own bone.
I'm always there for everyone
But I'm al...

Who am I to you?
Do you want me to stick around?
I'm screaming at the top of my lungs
But you still don't hear a sound.
Hang me from your promises
As I choke on your words.
You said you want me forever
But you cut my heart in thirds.
Where the fuck were you
When I needed you the most?
My world was crashing down
You turned into a ghost.
You left me all alone
And I've been lost here eve...

‘I used to enjoy knitting…’
…enjoyed the sound of needles, click-
clacking as they struck against each
other plunging between stitches, metal
spearing and separating through soft wool.
Fingers swayed in a romantic dance above
the work to create a loop around its prey.
The whole hand grasps and manipulates,
taking the wool on a move back through,
glorying in the...

Everything I wished for, everything I dreamed of, in my grasp.
The dream became my nightmare. Torturing me by showing me what I want and need in life. Turning into something ugly and twisted. I have become a shell of what I spent years building myself up to be.
It’s like I’ve crawled through the dirt and mud to get to the ladder, I climbed so I high I could feel the sun on my face and the ...

They see me
Without a word
Through the sea white mist
Slow silent slip away
They see me
An empty vessel
Adrift from my moorings
Fading to the horizon
To move, like night, from sea to sea
They see me
Lost to all and love
Hull down, alone
Eternally to drift
To tide or current whim
Sometime storm blasted

You took my skeleton out of my body and molded my spine to stand straight.
With your skilled hands you took me apart and put me back together, like you had done so many times.
In one piece, after so many years - you taught me what it was like to stand alon
You sculpted my wings in perfect likeness of yours.
With each feather, you gave me hope and confidence.
I was an angel -...
