“Don’t you just hate it when you analyze yourself

And find

You are a walking cliché

 

Just like everyone else

Not so special

After all”

 

He said it with a smug smile

And I wonder

What stereotype –

 

What mindless category

We fall in to

Tonight?

 

“Boldly we too shall

Pass through the same

Valley of dread

 

Throwing stones at our brothers,

Torture ourselves –

With our own minds creation”

 

As I make the claim

His eyebrows lift

And I return his smirk, where it belongs

In Remembrance

Will you remember me

When my time has come

And gone?

 

Windswept changes,

Ephemeral destiny,

We are

 

A lonesome cry

A flicker

That dies

 

Will you mourn my soul

When spirits escape

My eyes?

 

I ran through the fog

On borrowed time –

Never knowing my bearings

 

I stood alone,

We stood together,

It passed through my dreams

 

Will you remember me

Tomorrow,

Will you care?

 

I cared for you

The Secrets of the Sins We Leave Behind

The sanctuary of time turns the tide,

Biting nails, gripping party anthems

Mark a wasteful youth

 

Fretting feelings fleeting, emotions that stir

Comets reappear with its icy tail of despair

Impacting a slumbering world

 

Forging a fork in the road, fractures the frame

Pioneering a new structure from the ruins of the old

Moving forward, never to look back
