Oh God, My Beauty!

Cold Is Agonyís Cage

In The Valley Without Vision

Ruthless Pride

Fruits Evil Hands Did Sow

Defining True Beauty

I Throw My Words Toward Tomorrow

The Hands Of Time Are All Of Our To Bear

Let The Passion Flow


There Is Beauty In The Ground

Condition Of Thee

All The Flowers You Plant Tomorrow

We Are Such Small People

Looking Back

Nefarious Love 2

She Was A Masterpiece

Dark Skies

Loneliness Walks The Strangerís Road

The Apology

Nefarious Love

Street Struggle 101 (If You Play The Game)

I See You Mercy

Reverse The Curse They Tried To Ascribe To You

Our Father

Beautiful Flower

Man Can Only Do So Much

The Silent Sufferer

Humble Happiness And Pity Pain

Pen Me My Honesty

If You Tear The Passion From My Soul

Listen To The Skyís Sad Song

Shakespeare's Death Bed

In this poem Shakespeare try to fight away death but he can't avoid the inevitable.

O Death here I lie,
Why is the cold so bold
  and the warmth so shy?
Don't move so close Death,
you're not my love,
You haven't the eyes
   of my sweet dove,
So I resist but you persist,
      caress my hand,
     and blow a kiss
Your frigid hands and frosty breath,
Slows my heart in my chest.
You move ever so close with your wintry web,
     like a helpless fly, there held
And like a grisly beast
      that licks his teeth,
       grows your eyes
        before the feast;
And with a fatal kiss,
              stills me,
And take me to eternity.
