    So you whistle, so you sing- The wayward monarch, the captive king. Strung by rafters in the parlor, He’s clipped your wings and scrubbed your squalor, Broke your legs and smashed your beak, He left you dying; he’s made you weak. Your song has turned to some odd tune- All’s gone disma...

    Just one day ago, you were with me— Not with your mind, less often heart, But I could feel our hands entwined, Our fingers locked together again, And you were here just once more— With me. The open air whispered, So I simply put it off as your voice Calling to me from the void That we...

    After you, my life was a cold spring rain, Bound to a mind full of teeming recollection. Even as I sit here, tied down by what once was, A brighter dawn waits outside these doors. But whose to say that I can break them down? Confidence has never come unto me; after all, It was with tears in ...

    You were my baby days ago And now you’ve gone so far— Only to come even farther. Your eyes were glass, your mind on-par; You’d always find new ways to keep me thinking, To keep me believing, And you are the reason for my faith. Your heart was fragile, yet immortal. Everything about yo...

    Some call solitude lonely, But in it I find the most company. Perhaps not the best company, But beggars can't be choosers And a voice is a voice all the same. Some call solitude quiet, So why does it scream the loudest? Colorless? My walls are covered By the spectrum. How is it solitude, if...

    If I've a prison, it's one of shape, And like a canvas, it must have color. This cell should be with windows And in a place where I can hear the birds. I'm confined? Then behind walls of marble, And my cot is strung up close to Heaven So that He Himself can decide my dreams. I'll make the bes...

    Lust might be counted in inches; Love is only regarded in miles. They will tell you it is that which cannot be measured; Do actions speak? – They do. Do whispers scream? – They can. Memories the glass, let emotions be the ticks. If love cannot be measured, it mustn't be precise But love i...

    When we were young, and love was right, Your conviction lay in hope and light. And you could call me grim or stark, But I saw beauty in your aimless dark. I’m looking back on pages stained By which has stood my joy, my pain. A book composed of greatness, girth, A place in which my thoughts ...

    Love is always in flux— My life, I rode the high points. Never before have I dove down And learned what love with strife entails. Once, it was all song and melody. I knew what it was to love with flesh, But never before had I loved the air around me. I never felt affection for a distance ...

    When we first met in whatever throes we might have met in, You had the potential of a God, the grace of a Goddess, and the heart of a lion. When we first fell in love, by the luck of whoever possessed it I always found myself watching you close, long awaiting for these to decay. You were the gol...

    I remember how soundly you’d sleep, so close to me, So close to me that I could still smell myself And the way our skin had laid on top of each other. I remember sitting down with you, where in the distance The waves, like they had for centuries, rolled to shore. But it was not the sea I ha...

    Hold me to this empty promise, My loaded lies provide me solace This path is one to go alone- Just one more soul down Dreamer’s Row. Perhaps I’m bound to my ideals, Never meant to seek the ‘real’. At length, I find this heart has changed; I’m prone to stand against the rain. So d...

    Let the day be with the light, and the night die with the land For the sun will show the longer shores, but the moon ignites the sand. If dreaming belongs to dozers, then let the dreamer’s mind go dry For the dreamer could be dumb and dull, still reaching for the sky. If you’d asked me days ...

    Drinking in the midday breeze, I’m sitting under Poplar trees. My flesh is soaked up by the sun; Baking ‘til the day is done. The horizon seems off so far, A line against the murky tar That hits the shore in late night tide, Ignited as the sun takes side. My body aches for the love u...

    Search. Salvage what you can from this land. Here, nothing is forlorn. Seek out the good in your brother; How can you lean on one you cannot love? Love. Take from the moon and stars What they have been put here to teach. Know they are bigger than you, But never stop trying to grasp th...

    The stars above forecast, with their iridescent glow the sickening radiation of my heart. When the snow in the sky refuses to fall over these cold, marble graves and winter won't quite settle on these restless minds, my heart will quake and tremor for the songbird's melody. And I...

    Does she sing for the dead night sky, And the congregation of ravens beneath? Or is it the flickering stars That catch her streaking hymn? Does she sing for the dead grass garden That perks to life to hear her voice? Or is it the blue jay's chirping melody That lend its hand to hers? ...
