2004

I wonder if I will ever feel loved again.

2003

the feelings of melancholy have lent their hand to my mind once again. Thoughts I would rather not think but yet can not shake fill my being. recalling things that should stay in the past, a look into the future shows no signs of them leaving and yet If only I could find the will for the feelings to depart. Maybe it's because there is no reason for things to be the way they are, maybe it's because I don't know what I did that things have changed, maybe it's because the good bye never came eye to eye as was always promised. maybe the bridges burned will come to haunt each of us from time to time maybe, a lot of maybes, and maybe that is what or why the thoughts still linger and the questions of what if

1999

Within the mists a face appears, from a distance it's yet unclear, who wears the smile and the tender laugh, whose voice is distorted by the wind

A darken shadow hides, vanishing it from site, an echo of laughter, and the memory of the kiss is all that remains within my vision of the mist

1998

Crashing to the ground, in defeat
spinning out of control
no one is listening
no one cares

Reaching for the rope that will save me
finding it short of my grasp
no one to catch me
no one is there

Tumbling into an unknown abyss
falling away from the safety
no one to support me
no one to tell me where
