the music was loud, the songs some familiar, some unknown, youth entertained, thoughts without pain, thoughts of nothing to gain, the heart is held restrained.

I feel things slipping away, the joy I have felt since I found the sunshine, is slowly leaving, and I don't know the reason, the truth hasn't been spoken, the words go unspoken, and unheard.

will you love me forever? as I shall always love you

Snow falls upon the ground
melting, cleansing, disappearing
like the past I have lived
soon to be gone
New life begins
The spring of tomorrow is here
and with trust, hope and faith
I shall bury the fear

Mysterious,
Has the spell been cast
What was it's incantation
meaningful
lost upon the dream
Wishful
or wanting
Confusion of thy emotions
A simple word I crave
from the magic or...
the Mystery

1998

The storm had washed the black from the night sky,
making dawn, such a beautiful site
Huge puffs of white in the sunlit sky.
a brilliant band of color to the East as the sky continued it's tears

Then somehow, something went wrong
the sky became angry, hiding the golden light,
darkness descended, the air was filled with it's angry growl.
and it's tear fell harder
beating the earth

1997
