2006

I have noticed footsteps within my Thoughts again, quite frequent and constant. I have to ask you why? Why do you still after all this time, why do you come here to haunt me. Are you that curious as to why or what I do what I do when I do it? or is it more than that? Which one goes the journey? By now you should know that your never going to figure out what I am saying or who exactly I am speaking of or to in my words. So keep coming keep wondering, maybe one of these days you learn the easiest way to find the answer is to ask the question face to face.

2003

passing of the moments, one second, minute, hour closer to the end of the pain and suffering life seems to be. Thinking on the pain within, a philosophy of mine has always been, no matter how deep or how long it lasts at sometime in the future it will come to an end, however there are things that can ease that suffering until the journeys end, someday i hope I find that again in my life.

2002

what is love if it takes away your identity
it steals from you who you are
it steals your thoughts
it steals your being
it steals your happiness and contentment
and throws it into a bowl of confusion like no other

have I gone so long with so little
have I found that life is complete as it is
do I want more or less
do I want the same or a different direction than we have been?
why now when things are good
maybe life is never to be good?

Habit is habit and not to be flung out of the window by any man, but coaxed downstairs a step at a time.
- Mark Twain -

2000

Such a roller coaster I ride, tears and laughter mixed together
determination and in decision combined
longing for the old, yearning for the unknown
steps forward, backward, spinning in circles
Have I burned the bridge
will I fall and drown?

1999

Yesterday innocence died, in a school in Colorado, 15 children and one teacher laid dead, dozens injured and hospitalize. gunshot filled the school, along with screams and cries. the questions of why, the questions of how. Life ended before it really has begun, such burden upon our hearts. Life shattered.

1998

If I could only spread my wings
and fly
If
If I could leave this body
and travel
If
If I could speak my words of love
and hold on
If
If I could wish a wish
and let it be
If
If I could touch your warm flesh
and feel your warmth
If
If I could walk by your side
and spend my life with you
If
If I could?

1997

An intellectual is a man who takes more words than necessary to tell more than he knows.
