Random Poem:


Oh how heavy my heart is
unbearable pain
do I cut where it hurts
do I set free the essence of my love
do I let the rains fall
from the mountains of my eyes
to mingle with the flow of my essence
as it snakes it way
to the mouth of the river of my tears
to be washed away with the
ebb and flow of the tides
little by little
my world fades to black
till there is nothing left
but the husk of a man
floating on an endless ocean of broken dreams
a man who sold his soul
for the conviction of love
