I Wish

Poem By David Wilson

I wish I could wrap her up, and put her away
Lay her softly on a golden tray
And let her sit until another day
I wish I could wrap her up, and put her away
Put her in the closet, or under the bed
Until the dust has settled, and the 'kings' are dead
I wish i could wrap her up and put her away
In the basement where no one ever looks
So she'll collect dust, like vintage books
And I wish that just like those old books

I'll come across her later
And cry out in surprise
I wish i could start over, and read again
So i could see the words with open Eyes
I wish i could go back, and realize
That she's so different, so fragile
I wish that i had known sooner
That behind the cold stare
A heart beats and chokes there
That Behind the Cold Stare
An Incredible mind, rests there
I wish i could wrap her up, and put her away
in the dark until, the dawn of a good day
Where I can bring her out, and she can smile
I wish she could have all her wishes
If only, for just a little while

Little Drummer Girl

Every week she steps daily in army,
Faking that she does it happily,
evenly taps it out constantly
the beat always comes to me

Forgive Me, Forgive And Forget

Dreams and passions lead to misery and depression

Complicated missions fall to pieces

End Of Me

The Shadows That Creep In The Back Of Your Mind Are But A Dream Compared To The Nightmares That Stalk My Conscience

This is the End for Me

How To Live

Deep inside within me resides the profound ability
To clear the opacity and reveal the Indecency
Of todays society, and its harsh brutality
That sparks insanity, due to cruelty and due to vanity

Written Insanity

In the vacancy of the mind one can find
The depths of the darkness
Reach just ahead of your hands
The Gloom Is heavy, it pushes, oppresses
