Sleep is coming hard this morning
I find myself thinking of things I shouldn't
shouldn't for myself and my sanity
my peace and solitude, my direction or my path
The Eastbound train just came through
it's whistle sounding as forlorn as my soul and my spirit

muscles are beyond the ache
are now numb

1999

Somewhere tonight
there is another lonely soul
One that walks a different ground
searching
as we all do
looking for answers not to be found

1998

Laughter comes upon a distant wind
two young loves dance in the moonlight
thinking they are alone with the stars
cool water upon heated flesh

Unaware of all that is around them
seeing nothing but the shine in one another's eyes
not the creatures of the night
Whispered words of forever

Yearning for more than before
frightened of the effect
craving the burning passion that surrounds them
lost to all but one

1997

My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.
