I'll wake up one day with my heart intact because he'll help me fix it. I'll get up and look out my porch to the sea with my tattooed fingers and a cigarette in hand. It'll be my last one because I'll share it with myself. To live this life free of my stress. Not worry about money or college. I'm truly happy to be alive with everything intact.
With true friends that I've found .
With my writing.
With me.
Love is simple until you make it complicated. Life is complicated but it's your job to find the simplicity. It's your duty not to worry.
I'll be grateful until...

As I sit on the edge
of the roof,
I look down at the street
below.

"Just jump,
no one will know."

"They'll simply think you
slipped and fell."

'Eh,
not today.
You can go to hell.

I'm just up here
to tune my guitar.
I've come this far,
I'm not going to throw it all away
just because
you told me to.

I can do this.
Someday,
I'll be able to safely say that
I got through this.

He is wealthy beyond no end
Because he loves my best friend

She is beautiful and daring
Warm, comforting and caring

A man and woman of character
True friends that you treasure

Always there to lend a hand
Be supportive and understand

With an open door
Generous free pour

Opening their home to all
Whether it be Day light or nightfall

So cheers too you two
And thanks for all you due!

I wonder if and when
it happens, You know,
or You might but then
again, how, whilst
You’re in the thick
and stuck in the
sand sinking deep?

Yeah,
I wonder
if You’d realize
while it’s taking
place.

God!
Sleep is so freakin’
difficult
right
now!

What have I to be
and the food processor
agitates just so,
a wee bit if You will
And I’ve come to know
even a minute thought
of skin to skin
lets in
I mean out,
the energy created
in
the
moment.

wings are flapping on the water
geese take flight it seems they’ve brought a
symphony of sound expanding
together with a float plane landing
across the bay where traffic’s roar
emerges from where buildings soar
towards the grey sky’s cloudy lowering
obscuring nearby mountains towering
although their presence still is felt
by the sea where feelings melt
dripping from the sky as raindrops
rushing down to sea from hilltops
into the ocean’s breathing out
then breathing in below the shout
of gulls and crows and ferries warnings...

The obstacles of life can set you up to fail
The energy of Failure can be all around you
How strong is your mind of solitude?
How many NOs; will you have to hear before you quit?
Why is your spirit weak?
Why are you breaking in times you have to stay maintain your poise?
Why not push hard on a hunch?
You’re unique with special skills
You’re different that's why you have a bright dream
Your future is yours to dictate
Open the gate way to your dreams
Push forward to heights you never thought you would see
Overcome the adversity that's put in...

We are broken and empty,
Shackled and frightened,
Overtaken by ugly events,
Life seems to lose it's meaning,
Happiness is stolen,
Smile is the mask we wear so we can keep going on,
But deep down is a concealed pain,
A lump of bitterness and agony,
No where to turn to,
And no one to run to,
We feel forsaken and betrayed,
We feel lost...
And everyday poses a different challenge,
No one stands for too long without falling,
Even when you rise,you fall again,
It's like we are given too much to bear,
And there is so much to fear,...

My dad is my hero , the man who saved me from hurt , who cast away an evil women who left me scared and in fear.
He isn't just a father figure , but a friend , and a mother figure all in one,  he's been there since i was born , and fought a long battle against evil and finally won !
My dad brought me into this world and gave me happiness and life , i will forever be thankful and will always love him, no one can ever break us , what tries to defeat us makes us stronger and we have a special bond that no one can ever take away.
I apologise to him for all the time i drove him...

Nineteen years
Ups and downs
Built a life
Smiles and tears

Feel butterflies
Romantic gestures
Doing my make up
Little black dress

He's sexy still
Now a little grey
I'm so in love
Our lives unreal!

The air is cold,
your body is warm.
I reluctantly rest in your arms
and try to sleep quietly 'til the morning.
But the thoughts keep me up
and you notice I'm awake,
you hold me a little closer
realizing my health is at stake.
I'm shaking uncontrollably, unable to stay still.
Just a few hours ago I was okay,
I didn't even feel ill.
This fever is high,
and there's no more medicine to take.
It's going to be at least an hour or so
until this fever finally breaks.
So, for now, just hold me.
Tell me it'll all be okay....

I know I can be a little senseless, but there’s one thing that’s on my mind…
 
Darling, I crave you like my lungs need air, with a hunger too much to bear,
That quenching my thirst simply will lead to more and more constant longing,
That this yearning goes beyond both the physical and the spiritual and maybe
You’re right, I’m obsessed…
 
But my heart knows full well the distinction between love and fascination,
And what we found in our lives in the spec of all time is something special,
That the...

You’re so honest and down to earth
And I think
You actually changed something in my today
Like I see things differently
Because of you

I write for the moral
who cannot express their feelings through the oral
I write for single mother's coping
for those who've given up hoping
I write for the dead who never received their penance
I speak for the obliterated, who are nothing but mere remnants
I am an oracle of the divine
and a moment trapped in time
You ask why I write?
Why do I waste my ink?
I write for the conformed
who have become too afraid to think
I write for those stranded
though surrounded by people
I write for the oppressed
when they are supposed to be equal...

August Forenoon
There is a sale on in the dress shop bathing trunks reduced up
to 40%. It has been a good summer and few local people have
died but the price of coffins stay the same....
So beautiful a forenoon, I drove on my moped to visit a carob tree
I used to sit under when lonely
Its thick branched protected me from the world. Under it now
two elderly women -on their knees- picking sweet, black beans.
The small farmers around here have aged with me, the women
looked up and smiled at this elderly, permanent tourist on his

    Every Night
 There is a light waiting for you
Out in the distance; out in the cold.

This light comforts you, and guides you
through the immense darkness that surrounds us all.

It warms your heart. It lets you free
It's in your blood, it's in your tears.
It's everywhere, though nowhere near.
