How many?

Two hundred sextillion stars 

In our universe

Thirty-five trillion blood cells

Bodily dispersed

Seventy-thousand decimal places

Someone memorised for Pi

Five thousand visible suns

Light the night sky

Two and a half billion seconds 

The extent of one person's life

Thirty-three percent truly believe

After death, there’s an afterlife

Forty million sperm

How Far Sorry Goes

You'd be surprised
How far your sorry goes
It floats out through the air
To where, nobody knows.
(One moment spoken, and in another moment gone)

You'd be surprised
How far your sorry goes
So many times
It never even leaves your throat.
(And its those you've never said
That last the longest in my head)

But most of all,
You'd be surprised
How far your sorry goes
If it were meant

Sorry, I missed me

I drifted off into a reality where

soft sounds sadly rotted

into hard cacophony,

where people lived

loveless lives

and the arguments

that at one time

had seemed so far off

turned up on the doorstep,

wiped their dirty feet

on the old, worn out mat,

and entered in

to destroy the peace,

turned it into a relentless torture,

returned it to its distorted state.

Set my heart free of chain
Don't break my heart again
Live your world keep me alone
I regret to be yours at all.

Since we met on that "…." Day 
You're still acting the play 
How to believe yourself today 
since you're hiding your goal. 

God helps guilty to regret
But you decided and insist 
Only to make mistakes a lot 
Now get ready to stop or fall.

I'm Sorry

Why say I'm sorry
for something in which
you had no part?

Because, shallow as those 
two words may seem...

the gesture plays 
a pivotal role in 
healing a broken heart.

My love

My love, I let you down

I promised I'd be there but started to drown


My love, I was in over my head

Why did we pass ships at night as we climbed into bed


My love, the only love for me

I just want to say sorry, I am so fucking sorry 


My love, I see your face everywhere

There's not one other face that could compare


My love, my beautiful friend

You were ...

Sorry, I'm temporarily done

Sorry buddy for what's gone on
If only you had actually known
How much that  I sacrificed for you
And this friendship that I thought was true

I honestly stood by you always
I was the friend that would have stayed
But in the end it was you that betrayed
Me in the most hurtful of ways

We had a history that we kept a mystery
Because it wasn't knowledge that we wanted freed
Why is that a...

Soullessly starring into the air

As her body laid lifeless

All this time the Stifled screams

Shut away to keep them at bay, 

Any chance to show remorse

Shut down and accused of lies. 


If I could tell you one last thing

I love you would be the words to say,

Now I can't see you again

I see the truth that was buried within 

I can't help but blame a part of me

When I lie.

There is me...lying.
Not lying like you say.
Lying on the floor, lying like I say.
Begging, weeping, asking.
You carnival figure, you.
You war hero, you.
You champion, you.
One leg propped upon my stomach.
Where are your gold stamps, your badges, your medals?
The trophy you stand on is all battered.
You have laid me out on the floor, the doormat
Withholding the welcome sign.
You roll m...
