2006

I want to say I still love you, I want to say how much I miss you, I want to say I want to know how you are, I want to say I wish things were different, I want to say I still have dreams in which you are there, I want to say, but it never is spoken.

the first love, I have always loved
the last love, I still love
all the love between has been forever forgotten

1999

You were here again
I saw your sign
It makes me wonder if your pain is my design?
or do you come to torment
to say it's never to be mine.

You read my thoughts but do you know anymore than you did upon your last visit? Does he call my name? Does he think of me? Do I of him? You wonder as you read, for who the words are written. Am I thinking of blue eyes, and a Southern Night? Am I dreaming of eyes of green upon the eastern sea? or are they brown, and hidden by a crown? Yes you do wonder, but you shall never know where my thoughts are and where my words may led. For once I held love in my hand but for a moment, and no matter what, you can never change that. Does your spells still cast? and do you wonder how long it may last? I know the pain and it never ends, as long as you continue to hide the truth from thyself. Do you lie to him of what you have done and where you have been? Take care, for if you throw it away your a fool.

1998

A tempest of emotion
changes in the wind
raging spirits
spent and reborn
anger surfaces
hurt arises
emptiness invades
spent

1997

The farther backwards you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.
