Listen

Listen to the children cry
Listen to mortals when they die
Listen to that deceptive lie
Listen to those reasons why
...

My Hand Is Outstretched

You difficult man
Let me into your soul
My hand is outstretched
For you to hold
...

Fatuous Angel!

So sweet; so innocent, the child of heaven
Fallen into revulsion, called Earth
Calling out to the depraved to love
And be loved
...

Daniel’s Cry!

High in the mountains
Weathered in cold
A man of young
Has now grown old
...

Me

I sought light in darkness and darkness in light
I lost time and wasted in anticipation

I awaited flowers in autumn and snow in spring

6.
The Disease

The disease crept silently
It took over my thoughts
It eroded me and left me cruelly
Depressed and stupid
...

7.
Unfound Narrator

I am the walking light
I am the vigilant night
I am the longing sight
I am the tentative plight
...

Entrancing Eyes

I was trodding through a lonely path in my life
A broken heart; A wretched mind

A time when love didn’t exist anymore
...

For Annabel

You are an element of my body
Progeny of my soul
The core of my being
I look at you and lose sight of myself
...

10.
Dark Hole

In the darkness
Lay me down
In confinement
...
