Favorite Quote:
"Said we go to war just to bring us together, I believe in Love, I believe in forever..."

"Eyes see everything..." -Devon Torble,

"Caught up in love"- Joseph M. Lyons,

"I speak my words, through a broken truth,
...I bite my lip, and taste its guilt,
I see heaven on the horizon, but I turn my back,
Paradise must wait,
For when it dies,
The truth shall be revealed…" - Joseph Michael Lyons,

"Seen through an angel’s eyes,
I’ve found love where it truly lies,
And when that angel cries,
All my pain slowly dies…" - Cassandra Burnes and Joseph Lyons


One,
Two,
Three,
Four,
Visions blur past me,
Eyes closed; I find my center,
Centrifugal energies guide me,
My minds deceit; my only mentor,
Five,
Six,
Seven,
Eight,
Inside my dust filled veins,
Regimented reality; deadlocked serenity,
Through blind eyes; crimson tears rain,
Fueling the inferno of my calamity,
Nine,
Ten,
Eleven,
Twelve,
My world trembles, shakes, and tears,
Vivid scars underneath all my pain,
Losing grips on my domain and all who cares,
I still find a place to hide my shame,
Thirteen,
Fourteen,
Fifteen,
Sixteen,
Doors closed; salvation pending,
I stand to face my darkness,
All I was is then; this life is ending…

I wrote this poem about how we sometimes let life get the best of us...We must stand to face our fears no matter what they may be, if we ever want to be free...
