Hollow Ground

Hollow Ground

Like the effluent rose, failing to blossom,

I am stranded
With no defence I sit and wait for the inevitable storm that will strip me of all my colour
All my emotion
All my life
Rain cascades like tears down my withering body.
Battered by the elements as i stare at the ground, waiting for it to consume me
I am weak
I had faith once, i used to admire the ocean of blue above
My beauty is still ever present, but it’s invisible to most
I am invisible
The world that we live in is a picture of serenity, but the earth is filled with parasites
Preying on the weak as they make their way to the top
Forgetting all they once were
Staying true to yourself is a dying art
And not everything is how it appears before us
But even though i’m suffering,
I am still a rose
And I am still beautiful

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this for a very special girl who's soul has been turned to dust.
Taken in with the promise of light, then consumed by darkness.

Inside all of us is ourselves

We just need to come out once in a while


My Everything


And we saw each other

First glance – stunning

Never knew my heart could play

Until I felt it drumming

Smiles damned contagious

Conversation artfully lively

Time never flies this quick

What is this feeling thriving?

The beauty of silence so strange

Dawns an energy never awakened

Star filled skies dance around us

Insecurities temporarily forsaken






I watch you sleeping

My Everything

I watch you sleeping.

So silent, so still, so perfect.

An incredible sight to behold.

My eyes fill in marvel;

Driving the longing for your speckled blues,

That dance in life with mine.

Until morning breaks, I'll cherish you.

With the ever so quiet night as my parnter;

In our secret adoration.

I know you hate when I call you beautiful....but you are what you are.
