Some Assorted Poetry...

This is a small collection of poetry which I felt like including on the site. Some of the poetry here was written by me, during and after a poetry class I took while in college. Some of the poetry here was written by friends and other people I know. Also included are lyrics to several songs which I like for one reason or another. Enjoy...

O Terrible Queen

I
once built dreams
in the fertile fields of green
in her eyes. They became kingdoms
and castles of sand, besieged and breached
by tumbling tides of tears,
and slowly forgotten in time.

And I am sad,
for she was the sand
and the sea.
