2006

I started the day behind having overslept, gads I think that is the best I have slept in years, and somehow through the day I never really managed to wake up fully, so the days drifted by, and now it is over and time to sleep once again. What a wasted day.

1999

Just beyond the midnight hour, my thoughts roam and ramble, haunting the night and my soul. Questioning why I cannot surrender what I hold dear inside, my love that I want so freely to give, but yet I can not find the one who shall receive all that I have to give, I hold on tight as though it is some scared prize, and knowing it is not. I am so scared, no terrified, but of what, that I can't give it up, or that I will never find the feeling again? My mind screams, it spins and holds tight, deep in the darkness of the night. To many things in the past is that my excuse, is it what holds it all inside so tight? and no matter how hard I struggle and fight, it still does not become right.

I search, but yet I look for the unknown, the tomorrow of hope and dreams, where finally there is silence and no more screams.

1998

The tempest stirs
changing within without
gathering strength from hidden depths
becoming stronger
overpowering
It stirs the soul
directing emotions
changing us

The beginning is the most important part of the work.
