I missed it...I missed it.All the minutes,ganged up on me in ambush,crushing me in an instant.Slipping by,In plain sight and in darkness,they mounted their assault,with a relentless, compassionlessdetermination.And I missed it.Sure, I saw the hourspass by like cars in traffic.I saw the days,flow through light and dark.And yes, the months,that came and went with the seasons.But I missed the minutes,the magical momentsthat held the keys of true happiness,the gift of God we often overlook,until they’re gone.I missed it,but not as muchas I miss her.
Sublime-RhymeI lie in bed,red streams,beams, into tired eyes.Why's, run through my head,dead, to an 'outside' world,hurled, from my dreams.Seems that I wake,break, into a day,way off center.Winter is near,here to freeze,seize, my soul.

PerspectiveThe sky was perplexedwith the idea of blackand white and blueand gray.But the sea didn't mind,it had seen worseand betterand all points in between.But the moon just laughed,observing,with a perfect smile,above all.And I,I stood alone,watching, obliviousto all the fervor.Thinking,about my pitiful lifeas the worldleft me behind.
Future-Present-PastII would ask youto be my sunburn,not so my skin crawls,but to feel the warmth. in my bones, I feel the earth moveI would ask youto cut my throat,so I can feel my bloodflow. (emo I know) a wet smooch of rain drops

DichotomyWar,a battle we all fight,with one demon or another,a person,a thing,a drug,a vice,ourselves
War,a necessary thing,to truly be alive,we must fight,to live,to fight.War,without it there is no love,no joy,no peace,for without a fight,what is a thing worth?War,it gives us everything we need,to survive,to prosper,to be alive.

Lilac II - tankaa star-glow connects their breaths -a river path. in lilac light she forgets to sigh.
Boingacross the meadowevery step eruptswith grasshoppers
24 Hoursi.Dreams will slowly fadeas dawn breaks through the windows;morning’s here again.ii.Stomachs growl and groanas smells from the kitchen waft;afternoon is here.iii.Dusk paints a red sky,the sun retires for the night;evening shall bring peace.iv.The stars and moon dance,a waltz of shining passion;night has come at last.
