Deep in the dark
Void of light
Just beyond the arc
Of the full moon's light

Live's a poet
Who's love is to rhyme
He doesn't yet know it
But there's coming a time

There's coming a day
When he'll see the light
To show him the way
To step out from the night

Giving him a glimpse
Of love without end
His heart it tempts
No use to pretend

One day his life
Anew to start
No longer afraid
To step out of the dark

********************

Dear Micheal,

This was not intended to be about you personally. It is written from the feeling most of your poetry gives me. Please? Don't take it the wrong way, as it was written with nothing but complete love and respect.




 All my love,
Jeffrey

I lie awake in a world filled with dreams,
but dreams can be so real when you don't know you're asleep

Jeffery,

I am sure that Michael would like to come out the dark. In many ways, you have taken a few steps in getting him out towards the light...

After a hazy night or two,
Finally will start a day anew.

Regards, Sudhir.

 My heart is pounding, my stomach's inside out
I'm feeling kind-a-shaky, my mind is full of doubt
All I ever think about, is fearing fear itself,
Wish I could unscrew my head and put it on the shelf
Everything is twisted, everything is oh so tight,
Don't know what I'm looking at, the lights are all too bright
My brain's about to crumble, spill out on the floor
Sweep 'em up. Throw 'em away, don't want 'em anymore
Clouds race across the sky, day turns into night,
Still there are the questions, no answers in sight
Everything is twisted, everything is oh so tight,
Starin' out the window, everything is just too bright
Brain's about to crumble, spill out on the floor,
Wish I could unscrew my head, and kick it out the door...
You know I'm feeling kind-a....Strange
You know I'm feeling kind-a....Strange
