Replete of all its splendor,
my withered heart beats.... 
Such a sad and tortured drum.
Refusing me death,
it pumps its useless lifeblood
through my veins.
My lonliness leaves me cold.
These desires, with a frosted skim of ice
long to melt for some unknown spring.
I have love inside! I have love!
Love no one even pretends to try and see!
A poet!! What a joke!!
A dying breed of feelers
left to drown.
Pour me the cheapest drink
flavoured with the acrid taste
of societies distain

I know I'm different....
(One of the nicer things
that Ive been called)
It makes those cookie cutter clowns,
try and fit me in the smallest box
smaller than the one where they reside!

Intellect feeds my mind
yet makes me hungry all the time
And my soul? Oh my soul!
Always teaching me to walk a truer path.
Never used to be that way!
Now my damned internal eye
that's all it ever sees!!
But my heart?
I do not wish to speak of it!!
It beats.
At least it gets to share its time
with my soul and this eating mind.

The night is old
I turn out the light
Once again
I sleep alone
and wish the empty darkness
an empty dark good night...

I might need a tissue for this one. My first taste to know someone's gone. Forever wishing he could see me doing what I loved. Really not the same to feel he's watching from above. Carrying that casket my fathers life was done. The first walk to his grave feeling oh so wrong. And as the tears would fall I was screaming towards the sun. Giving me back my father this isn't where he belongs. A jr that still needs him, needed by his son. But not just me that needs him, too many still needing his love. Every person my fathers heart touched. Now you're just in all our thoughts. But wasn't enough time that I got. 12 years still want my father back.

Four years old and you made my twin,

The sermon seemed long, so I concentrated on the stained glass panes,
Rays of the sun shining through, making rainbows on the floor.
Dad's Aqua Velva tormented my nose.

I know you're p*ss*d. You thought I dissed.
It was simply a cue I must've missed.
I am always here. I should've been more clear.
