Flickers

Man and woman brought together by fate
A tiny spark to light the flames
The 25th of June was the fateful date
When our tiny spark began to blaze

A Moonlit Reverie

A moonlit reverie:
A jet black raven swoops
across unbroken white serenity,
filling the night
with its continual presence.
Flowing thick and smooth
from the tip of existence;
Preying upon
the minds of innocence;
thirsting for a means
to spread its power
throughout the world.
Ripples extend outward
from its tiny dropp into
the sea of existentialism,
and a lone tree waits in silence
to claim its next victim...

The Death of a Flower

Love is a soft, sweet flower
Blooming 'neath sunlight's rays
Life gives love its power
Sustains you all your days

Love is a soft, sweet flower
Bright petals circularly arrayed
Life gives love its power
To hold one's heart in sway

Love is a soft, sweet flower
Flourishing by a cool bay
Life gives love its power
But eventually both fade to gray

Love is a wilted flower
Petals all crumpled and frayed
Life gave love its power
But death took both away

Hidden Desire (Please Don't Break this)

I was sinking ever deeper
Couldn't see the light of day
Thought my life was small and worthless
Couldn't chase despair away
You were always there to help me
In times of need, you'd lend a hand
Never knowing my true feelings
Couldn't make you understand
All I wanted was your love
And all I needed was your kiss
You could pull me from the darkness
You could bring me happiness
For years I pined away, alone
With despair I couldn't cope
My thoughts of you were what I clung to
Dreams of you, they gave me hope
Then one day you hugged me tightly
Held me close in your embrace
I could feel my heart just pounding
My blood and pulse begin to race

O, To Control Lady Fate For A Day

O, to control Lady Fate for a day
To change everything, make it all go my way
O, to be able, at a wave of my hand
To change all the rules that govern the land
O, to be able, upon my whim
To change everything, make it clear within
O, to stop the sands of Time
And adjust them according to wishes of mine
O, just for once, could I take all your pain?
So that you could be free from the tormenting rain?
O, to control Lady Fate for a day
To change your skies from this dismal gray
O, to be able, at a wave of my hand
To take away sadness, to help you to stand
O, to be able, upon my whim
To make you feel such joy within
O, to stop the sands of Time
To wash away all dirt and grime
O, just for once, could I take all your pain?
Can I ever make you feel whole again?

Swimming In Darkness, Drowning In Doubt

Swimming in darkness, drowning in doubt
Knowing my life has been turned inside out
I'm wandering along in a world that is cold
Reliving all of my memories of old
I can't shake this feeling that the best was lost
I never imagined the height of this cost
Depression's black cloud hangs, huge and ominous
Sanity, now, just seems so amorphous
It seems I am lost in a world full of hate
Don't know what to do, unhappy with fate
My self-worth was shattered, my esteem now gone
Deep in my heart I know I'm not alone
But I feel that way, and it hurts me deeply
I can't understand why they treat me so cheaply
I can't seem to find an escape from the pain
Lost in this world, the people mundane
I just wish that everything could be clear
That I knew how to fight this adolescent fear
Until then I'll never know what life is about
I'm swimming in darkness, drowning in doubt.
