It’s a strange world of newspeak we live in. What was once a society devoted to logic and progress is now being herded in echo chambers of thought control and anti-critical thinking. Without the ability to examine an issue impartially and completely there is little hope of maintaining liberty and freedom, as history repeatedly demonstrated. Today, we find that thinking is a diminishing art, and in its place, sound bites and stop-thought terms are used to put the brakes on the mind. These term...

I Need You I need you, only live to see you You are what makes life true Nothing else matters but this I need you, I need to taste your kiss. And many times, I sink to despair Because you are not around Life empty without you there With you my happiness found. I need you, please never leave Don’t go, in you I only believe I want you, need you to live I survive only by the love you give. And many times, I am so lost Because your love may not feel Without you pay too high a ...

Need You Here I can’t do better in this verse Than write lines to your love There is nothing worse Than what my heart can’t prove. I don’t know if this will do To show, here, what I feel Except that I need you What else is there to reveal? I don’t want, this night, to sleep Dreams are gone in the morning All I want is you to keep Why else is this world turning? Here I am while you are gone Painful when so far away I need you, here, to go on I need you, in my life, to stay...

The melodies of Christmas carols fill the air Their spirit filling it with faith and mirth To celebrate th...

Face to Face I will only write this to pass the time I don’t look to posterity for these lines preserve Not do I care that I write this simple rhyme For some higher purpose my life does serve. And this page used by the greatest artists past Their canvas that their passion timelessly convey But, what I write only for this moment last And if I have you don’t care if it will stay. My brush is only dully filled for not meant to spill What colors that would fill in what you bring Whi...

Empty Love Okay, I love you, I have to admit While I feel the coming cold Where winter gives no respite Except if I have you to hold.

Teacher The boughs are only bare because their leaves have fallen Where before the trees stood cloaked in green And where the river once flowed now is frozen Where on its summer banks shared a romantic scene. And where I see only a few stars sparkle in the night Where before weaved a necklace your beauty did adorn Now when the morning comes and you are not in sight All else comes alive but, here, our love no longer born. And my dreams where you appeared only barren While my thoug...
