 I feel your mind
 It does not sleep
 I hear your thoughts
 Crawl up inside me

 I feel your hand
 Beneath the sheets
 You toss and turn
 But don’t move at all

 Your hand grasps
 For mine
 You need to feel
 Some life
 You feel so cold
 So alone
 Although you lie
 By my side

 So distant
 You become
 So far your thoughts
 Can chase you
 How lost in them
 You find yourself

 I can take you in
 Hold you
 To my skin
 Feel the warmth
 That I give
 Feel the warmth
 From within

 My thoughts
 Weave through yours
 Your eyes yield access
 To bring you back
 With each breath
 That we take

Simple Heroes

My thoughts are with those who lost theirs lives ten years ago today. 
My thoughts are with their family, friends and loved ones.

You will never be forgotten.

"Nothing But Paradise"

Nothing But Paradise
 It is our paradise
 Still, lingering, senses alive
 The softness of the world
 In which we lie together
 Moving each time
 To find ourselves
 Still wrapped in embrace
 Push my hand into the sheets on my bed
 Implant myself as memories in its shape
 Move with its movements
 Change as it shifts
 Creases always flow to you
 A world we make upon my bed
 An island – Far away
 We stay stranded for a lifetime

 To pray nothing changes
 To hide together, forever
 We chase each other through our minds
 Lover to lover
 Word for word
 Match sensations
 Our time together does not end
 Nothing but paradise
 We will hide

"Misguided Emotions"

 Misguided Emotions

 My mind is troubled by what it cannot find
 I search and try to understand what you are
 Dip my heart somewhere I do not tread
 Drag my mind through the garbage that is your belief
 Stemmed by something you do not understand
 The heart plays tricks of the world one cannot accept
 I garnish the words you speak in a hypocritical stance
 Believe that you mean no harm


 The world is black in my eyes
 The sun rises behind me
 Today anyway
 I seem peaceful and calm
 On my skin it seems real
 No pain can be felt or seen
 My mind is alive
 Crippled inside
 By the pain you can’t see
