"I don't like work... but I like what is in work -- the chance to find yourself. Your own reality -- for yourself, not for others -- which no other man can ever know."
- Joseph Conrad -

2004

I think I need to learn how to open up, how to express what I truly do feel, without wining without screaming without looking for understanding, but for just being me, somewhere I have lost that part of myself over the past few years, somewhere in the darkness when I look at who I am, I find I have no idea. I find I can no longer say I hurt, I laugh, I cry, I can't explain or feel anything anymore, and God I wished I could.

2003

no one knows I am here
no one knows the number to call
no one knows where I have gone
no one cares

2002

lessons taught
truth sought
the heart caught

2001

Someday someone is going to love me for me being me and nothing else
Someday I will feel that elusive dream of eternity

The aging process has you firmly in its grasp if you never get the urge to throw a snowball.
- Doug Larson -

1999

Waters untested
a trembling hand

you have given me
more than I could imagine

softness within your words
gentleness within your voice

a dream?
a tidal wave of emotion

pleasure unforeseen
rapture unto myself

dormant for so long
brought forth from the hidden depths

The sea rages as like tempest
of what the future may bring

1998

Mountains standing tall and in the distance
haunt my dreams of desires
cool springs running endlessly
giving life and more to all below

Tall Trees fill the sky above
bringing a shade of darkness
shadowing and hiding
giving silence to a world gone wrong

1997

Only a few things are really important.
- Marie Dressler -
