Not anymore

Last night she had a dream that someone entered the house while she was sleeping and she woke up planning her escape. Fear, gnawing fear, a fear that is as constant as life.

  Pain is like your friend constant and true cheering you on here to stay. They say it won't last nothing is life does your friend will too, leave when it has too. The loss is gradual the voice fades away the smiles lost an emptiness to stay. Till we meet I survive, the pain... Continue Reading →


Hopeless, helpless Floating into nothingness Empty darkness Shines the brightest. A journey without end Yet final Wandering soul Lost to the world. To rise and awake To move to the light Powerful brightness Forces in motion. Is this it? Angry and dark Emotions raw As I await.

The page is white A canvas of emotions, The colors faded The brush broken. Dark and grey The colors appear, Smudged and unclear They remain hidden. They that seek Are to find, That what appears outside Is not what they see. The colour white Holds all of it, That what remains unseen Was always there.... Continue Reading →
