TBT: Captivation (2003)

I see you sitting there, by my side
My heart pounds, with guile
And I can see, in your eyes
You want me to send you a smile

When I met you that day, I knew
We were meant to be, meant to see
Our future, sitting near
Waiting for us to flee together

I see you smiling there, wishing
My mind opens, with reflection
And I can see, in your eyes
You want me to get an inspiration

When I met you that day, I knew
You were meant for me, meant to be
My future, watching near
Waiting for us to be together

I see you talking there, with me
My heart yearns, with honesty
And I can see, in your eyes
You want me

The Sinner In Me

Staring at inner demons
I knew what they were saying
They hadn’t spoken a word
My time to leave was dying

Trust your instinct they thought
Be strong and one day return
More mistakes you will make
You still have something to learn

Never have I forgotten
The day I first felt pity
Not at anyone else
But the sinner in me

TBT: Artificial Intelligence (2004)

I arrive running at Mike’s Newsstand Café. I must look ridiculous running around the streets in my lab coat. I turn to my partner behind me with the tranquilizer gun, “Don’t do anything without my explicit permission, I’ll see if I can talk us out of this mess.”

I enter the Café and see Vincent sitting in the corner, looking at some magazines. He grows tense and nervous as I enter the door.

The Entrance

The Entrance to my heart
Is found in silence
Not because it can’t speak
But because its heartbeat is timeless

The Entrance to my soul
Is found in obscurity
Not because it’s hard to understand
But because its shadow brings security

The Entrance to my spirit
Is found in surrender
Not because it’s impossible to find
But because its truth is forever

TBT: Like I Had A Dream (2005)

I felt the pain
From inside
Like I had a dream
That taught me how to cry

Looking for desperation
I found my fears
Like I had a dream
That left me in tears

The Voice Of The Pair

They were quite a pair
A mixed history, quite at home
It’s never black and white
But they never fight
There is a flow to their friendship
Even if they barely knew
One was pure light
The other was shady night
But the magic they both grew
Don’t even doubt their taste
For always making perfect melody
Something simple, yet elegant
The voice of the pair

TBT: Green Slips Easy (1998)

Out of my view
I see you
Going left to right

As hard as rock
You know how to knock
Yet you retain your might

Gentle flower needle
Nothing you can’t handle
But your own fright

Three flowers and a heart
Disappears in the dark
And yearns for night

Nothing across the frame
You’ll never name
But hold tight

Hidden Home

A lonely flower in the dark
Finds a hidden home
Inside a glowing heart

A hidden home inside an abyss
Finds a caring friend
Perched upon a kiss

A caring friend all alone
Finds a lonely flower
Where none has grown

Dedicated to "JoyKilledIt"

TBT: Night Terrors (2001)

I've been shaking inside
Rolling my dice
Helping me decide
My mind in ice

I've been gambling inside
My delusional reality
Helping me survive
My own mortality

I've been leaving inside
Crowning my imagination
Helping me preside
My divination
