Sometimes I wish my thoughts that way, Sometimes I wish the silence would stop and the mind would transport the feelings, the emotions, the emptiness I feel since the silence began. Sometimes I wished I could stop it, but I know if I were to, then I would be stepping over the line and in time maybe, just maybe It will be broken. anyhow that is what I wish for.

I can't stop thinking or feeling this lost ness within myself. I wonder why this feeling comes upon me as though a dark shadow over my spirit, robbing me of happiness and even feelings at times. I hate the feeling, and I'm helpless from stopping it from enveloping me. I want to scream, to stop the mood from changing, but nothing seems to stop it.

They danced in the moonlight
no one but them

locked in a gentle embrace
no space between

their lips touched
a joining of the spirit

the eyes of the night knew
it was true

the watchers sat silent
afraid to break the spell

praying that their time would come as well

1997

Old people think young people haven't learned about love. Young people think old people have forgotten about love.
