The flip side of joy...can't seem to have one without the other. Any kind...5/7/5 it.

palmar aspect strikes

lurid red print on my cheek

a flash of anger

pain of betrayal

a wasp sting to the heart then

the poison kicks in

Oh, so true.


reaching out for you

our fingers almost touching

wrenched apart by fate

watching life go by

the body rails at stillness

the soul waits, serene


the two human halves

the mortal and immortal

constantly at war


better the sharp pain

rending flesh and breaking bones

than the soul's dark night


no price is too high

for a second of your love...

union transmutes pain



we vowed forever...

how can eternity end

one tuesday evening?

chapters come to ends

creating an emptiness

pain dampens the void

struggling to go on

each day as bleak as the last

the laughter is gone

your light warmed my life
i believed in miracles
and sheltered in love

now your light's gone out
cruel things lurk in the shadows...
i hope they find me

pain's there for reason

something is out  of kilter

healing's in order
