2003

a very dark, damp and dreary day. A day for sleeping, thinking and recalling. Wasted moments once again

2002

reach out and feel
touch what is closest to you
not in the physical sense
but what is inside yourself
and then the truth will be told
and then the choice will be presented
and the choice made will be forever

2001

Sometimes I wonder what tomorrow, what next year, and what the rest of my life will be like. Will I hold in my arms love once again, or shall I always be locked in this prison of loneliness. We all learn how to adapt to our surroundings, and what if I learn to adapt to this solitude, this isolation from all of man kind with the exception of crazed customers and manic mangers.

I wonder when he will go to her, leave me here alone, with my thoughts and the pain. I wish I didn't know, but how many times before has it been like this, and always the same.

1998

Lost in deep thoughts
a chin resting upon an unclenched fist
A tiredness can be seen in the staring eyes
a sadness is felt in the presence

Questions come to mind
but fear holds thy tongue
words are weighed but never spoken
a desire for hope no longer comes

then something cause a shift in movement
the moment is different there is a shine
a glow from within, is it a memory or something more
a longing so intense you never know

1997

Conscience is the inner voice that warns us that someone might be looking.
- H. L. Mencken -
