Death lives here in

Earthly resting places

An atonement of love

The grief too much to bare

Heavy hearts visit often.

Coming Undone...


Watch me fall apart again

After being strong for so long

Having an emotional overload

To the tune of an old song

Like a cup that's overflowing

The tears they fall like rain

I'm breaking apart at the seams

From this outpouring of emotional pain.

Desolate Dreams…


There was a wanton abandonment

To dance to the imperfect symmetry

Of the symphony of hope

After escaping the binds and shackles

Of those desolate dreams

Those footprints of faith

Kept me on the right path.

Destination Unknown


This life we're given

This journey we're on

This path we walk alone

Separate from others

Is our own private one

A reality all of our very own

Never fully understood

Never fully comprehended

That is one hell of a ride.

Feeling like winter

Cold, bare and exposed

Not knowing which way

The wind will blow me next.

Kiss Of Death...


Like a moth to a flame

You brought

Sweet kisses of death

A relationship doomed

From the start

You stole my last breath

Now a love lays

Deep in mourning

As it's laid to rest.
