When You Left

When you walked away you left with not just a part of me, You took my soul in its entirety. Without your eyes to gaze through my universe is shaded gray. The motion of my being continues but it is a shallow imitation of the life I once had, during those precious few moments when... Continue Reading →


Looking ever forward towards what? The hope of a peaceful death? An end to the madness that defies your journey towards knowledge, towards self? Needing more, you reach for it groping in the dark, a blind man in the sun. You put the universe in ordered terms yet it remains beyond your ability to understand.... Continue Reading →
