I can see her running through the grass,
Holding her sisters hand,
I can see her.
No one else can.
I can hear her laughing at the wind,
Singing and dancing with her twin,
No one else can.
Each time I watch one,
I see her too.
When one walks into the room,
I see her come in too.
No one else can.
I know why I see her.
I know why I hear her.
What I don't know...

I have searched this world for centuries
Just for you.
Bleak and empty I walked through
My heart barren.
My eyes seeing only
Dark shades of gray.
The impending darkness forever
Beating at my withered soul.
Then I saw you.
In an instant my world blazed to life.
The color of your power nearly blinding me.
The waves of emotions washing over my ...

His hands must be soft,
To caress away the stress of life,
Yet strong enough to defend against
The toughest of foes.
His eyes must be able to see
past the surface to the beauty beneath,
Yet deep enough so as to loose myself in them.
His arms must be fortified to carry me
Through the darkest nights,
Yet tender enough to shelter me in the storm.
His heart must beat loud...

What be-stilled the Demon?
Was it the rage that boils up from
centuries of fear all lived in a single night?
Or the boundless rivers of tears that
Flow -unchecked- from swollen eyes?
Neither will find you the success you seek.
For the demon thrives on both.
Fear is the food of the damned.
It nurtures the creatures created in pain
To give only pain in return.
Toss the fear aside,

Your tears shred my souls as
shards of glass that rip through
leaving my spirit gushing pain
like blood from an unchecked wound.
Only your smile can stem the flow
and heal the cause.

The emotions swirling through your soul,
The past woes that have embedded Into your heart;
They become mine.
As the soil soaks the drops of rain,
My soul soaks in your pain.
The paths that you have ventured,
The choices that have defined yourself,
Those times click into my mind in perfect Clarity.
Your past becomes mine.
Time is relative when you feel
the surface As t...

I am the one who’s innocent blood was
shattered beneath the golden cross.
I am the one who’s virgin blood
stained the concrete floor.
I am the one who was too weak to fight,
yet too strong to die.
Oh what a fool who transverses the
Hell of man to stand erect with burning vengeance…
and walks away.
I am that fool.
I am the one who fought each night.
Who used her own...

A year has passed.
Time has conquered moments
Now left only in memory.
Days of celebration have
Faded beyond the clock,
Leaving a gap of shadow
Where your face once shined.
Sounds from yester-years sink
Beneath new voices,
Forcing our souls to reach
Further to recall.
Time has ravished recollections,
Leaving not but vague thoughts
That flow past the heart....

Tonight, the demon walks.
It has woken and staked its claim,
Dragging with it the tortures of the past.
Will it never cease?
Nights stillness creates shadows
That play out every lonely moment
In time to the clocks tick.
The emptiness burrows through to the soul,
Pushing out all resemblance of peace.
To each own mind one must face
The ever encroaching darkness

Misshaped pieces, fitting together ever so nicely.
Perfecting the picture it is to portray.
Each piece designed to fit together,
To make a beautiful scene.
What happens when one piece doesn’t fit?
What is to become of that picture?
When a piece is missing?
It lies unfinished, untouched, forgotten over time?
Do you ever stop to think of that unfinished puzzle?
Do you ever take the time to ...

I wake in the morning,
Grab the girls to school,
Spend my day cleaning and serving
Helping those that refuse to help themselves.
Long into the night,
I work right through it all,
Sometimes it doesn’t seem right
That amongst it all,
I remain invisible.
Yet when the world settles
And all is quite,
My life takes a different line.
I become a person of worth,
Someone seen and love...

From the sparkling stars
lightening the way on
dirt covered paths.
To the bristling fields on
the mountains backs.
A few brief breaths in
Gentle eyes carved in
We lived a lifetime,
in a fortnight.
Memories shall warm the
Even when fates time
creates a lasting part.
When lonely wolves howl,
the scent of what was,
