Hi All


It's an amazing day to share the work of someone I find highly talented. Today, it is a privilege to share with you, on the Jimmy Broccoli Facebook page and website, the poetry and lyrics of Taylor Newman.


I've followed Taylor's writing for a good bit of time and his poetry and lyrics are well-written, though-providing, and I always enjoy them. Taylor is an amazing writer - and he's a great guy! His dedication to the global poetry community is vast and his contributions are consistently outstanding.


Here is Taylor in his own words:


I began writing little story books at the age of four, and soon began to realize writing my pain, was not only very therapeutic but, became my only friend while young.


As years went by, I was noticed on tumblr, and my simple sharing of my work, soon became writing and co- writing with, "Alice Cooper," and other very well-known bands.


I just recently, opened an account on f/b, to begin to share my own more, personal work on and, although I'm still relatively new, I love sharing my work with you all.


At the young age of 13, I was diagnosed as having manic depression, I have strived to write, and I often share my illness with others, whom are sufferers like myself.


I wish to thank Jimmy Broccoli, for this incredible opportunity in sharing myself with you all,


it’s truly an honour to me. I Thank you all for reading. Bless you all.

Here is a piece written by Taylor Newman - and I know you'll love it as much as I do! ______________

When All You Had Has Gone


Many things I longed to tell ya' many more I wished to show, Tho' no words hold the depths to say what this heart knows,


Endless words that I could use and endless things I could do, Yet, all equate to simply nothin' if they're meant to give to you,


A billion words without a home as my heart it bleeds so deep, My love is silenced and forever while my soul begins to weep,


~Chorus~ ~~~~~~~ And as I walk, this lonely street I feel alone and cold inside,


As these tears now fall like rain within pain, I just can't hide,


A broken man, with nothing left who is close, to being done,


Simply, nothing's left, to live for "when all you had has gone" ~~~~~

No one knows, what I'm feeling and tho I know, they never will, Cruel time shall just keep tickin' it cares not what my love feels,


And matters not, how hard I try some things they just can't be, Like all my love on lonely winds and never felt by you from me,


A travesty which has no ending whom was born to live in pain, He walks alone, in the darkness sentenced to die, alone in vain,


~Chorus~ ~~~~~~~ And as I walk, this lonely street I feel alone and cold inside,


As these tears now fall like rain within pain, I just can't hide,


A broken man, with nothing left who is close, to being done,


Simply, nothing's left, to live for "when all you had has gone" ~~~~~~~

When all you ever dreamed of up and dies, before your eyes, When that light that guides ya' turns to hellish blackish skies,


When no one's left to hold you and there's no one left to love, When there just is nothing left it then becomes a final shove,


On this road of broken dreams deep in the night, I walk alone, Forever lost w/in the darkness this lonely soul, w/out a home,


~Chorus~ ~~~~~~~ And as I walk, this lonely street I feel alone and cold inside,


As these tears now fall like rain within pain, I just can't hide,


A broken man, with nothing left who is close, to being done,


Simply, nothing's left, to live for "when all you had has gone" ~~~~~~~

l've only tried to find my reason, and my meanings then to be, But all answers to my searches have all but died inside of me,


When all you thought was right has turned to all that's wrong, There's but nowhere left to turn "When All You Had Has Gone"
