Without You


Falling hard




My soul

My soul cries out

To you





You are so cold

Your soul


So empty

Your soul cries out

to me

to my soul

I can not hear you

I don’t want to hear you

I won’t hear you


Our connection is broken

You’ve damaged us


too much

too far

So far gone

So far away

So far

away from me

away from what we were

and we’ll never return

And my soul is better off without you…


Smile, to think of you…

We could walk together

One thousand lifetimes

Holding hands

Sharing that same smile

and you’ll always return

To the one who has hurt you

Countless times

Continue on your journey, my dearest

Be happy

… if you can

I’ll always smile

to think of you…

Stolen from the sea

You come alive
On the sand
Next to the ocean

Running away so that the waves don’t catch you
Your smile outshines the sun at it’s brightest
Gathering your treasure stolen from the sea

Hand and hand
Smiling but not looking to see
Following the path between the wet and dry

Who are you today?
Do you love me?
Do you hate me?

Is he the one on your mind
making you smile?

It doesn’t matter
It’s my hand you’re holding
My smile you see

As we walk alone
Gathering treasure
Stolen from the sea


Grasping At Straws

I stand on the outer edge of myself and reality

I am unable to wake up and find the same me every morning

Truth is a rule that most people bend

Truth is a lie


Like love and faith

I have great faith

In nothing solid

I walk a gray line

Counting points that only matter to me

Points in time

Time and space are also lies


Lies like forever and serendipity

You were my serendipity

Now you’re a ghost

I stand in a flowing river

The Universe smiles on the person who stands firm in their beliefs

but what do I believe?

What can we believe?

I stand on the edge of reality

and myself

I watch your eyes as I walk across the great decide between us

I watch your face as it awakens to the reality of what we are

and my eyes stay fixed on the skies that cry the truth

but truth is a lie

Like love and faith

You see my face as I awaken to the reality of what we are

What we were

or could become

We part with a wink and smile

Our hearts broken to an idea of what we believed we could be


Lies like forever and serendipity

The truth lies in the eyes of the beholder


The truth lies

and the beholder loosens his grip on reality

and lets go of the nothing that still remains

The nothing is all that’s really there

All that is real is nothing

and I… I stand on the edge of the Universe

Grasping at straws


The Undiscovered

Tightly the rope pulled close

and her anticipation climbed

As her anxiety of letting go faded

With each new and undiscovered fear arising

She was able to move quickly past them

and into an unseen nirvana

His hands found their way slowly around the curves and bends of her body

Giving her the darker areas of his soul

Secretly wanting her

and hating her

He follows the bends in her legs

That she is now unable to move

She ascends a ladder leading to a higher self

A darker self

The secrets her soul tells her she can not desire

That are unnatural and sinful

Yet she desires them

She is in love with her own sin
and he is in love with his

and her

She desires nothing more than to be dominated
To be controlled by unseen forces

As her blindfold is pulled tight
and her ropes even tighter

His hands moving ever slowly across her body
An undiscovered country that he has walked countless times

Yet still discovering new places to rest his head

and tongue

and his lips…

His beard dragging slowly as he stalks her inner beauty

Up her inner thighs

She gasps for sweet relief

and air

As his hands find her throat
Holding on for dear life

Bringing her to the edge of hers

As he continues to explores her hidden treasures

Her breathe returns and is quickly taken away

Again and again

As she climbs higher and higher on the ladder to release
