One of the most creative people I know, and love!

You ask for my Darkness

That which devours my soul

But do you have the strength to bare

What hides in this Cold

Layers

Upon Layers

Of lies that I’ve told

Protecting the truth of what

Feeds here and grows

Would you thrust your own light

Into the Void that is mine

Or try to Retreat

From the Secrets you find

And what if

You become

The Haunted One

Your own light dimmed down by

My monstrous one

What if the Whispers from

My darkest part

Are as knives that pierce through

Your beating heart

Words into Weapons

To rip you apart

You ask for my Darkness yet

The cost is severe

You must give up your Light

To See

What lurks here

My Utopia

Untitled

In my dreams, I see humankind…

with no discrimination.
treating all living with care and concern.
displaying no violence.
living reasonably and logically.
promoting peace.

In my dreams, is sadly the only place where I can find these qualities consistently.

Wounds

Untitled

Deep scars embedded in our psyche.
We were marred by loved ones we should call traitors.

We feel the need to hide the frayed nerve endings deep inside.
The repeated shocks to our system and sensibilities can make us mute.

But let’s not go quietly.

Our enemies expect silence from us.
But we deserve better than staying restrained.

Not screaming to the rafters calling out their crimes, buys them a better life than they are due.

The one we were owed.

Be strong, be loud and let your wounds heal.
