1,000 Tears – Music Video REBLOG

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to my friend CG perform his song 1,000 Tears. Moving lyrics and soulfully delivered. I’d play this on repeat if it was on my phone. Take a few minutes and give it a listen, won’t you? And please follow him. His earthy poetry is spellbinding. Learning, learning, and more learning. Here […]

The Mush From The Hill

I visited her every weekend for nearly six years. Her once-dark hair now silvered with age, but you could see she had been knock-out gorgeous in her youth. In my eyes, she was still quite beautiful. She had no family, so she claimed, and I was the closest thing she had to a friend. When […]

Cooperations and associations. Collusions and alliances. Combination of participation. Under all the layers is […]

No Escape

Who am I really? Can somebody tell me? It’s dark in here Smoke and screams Is that me? Something pierced my eyes My cheeks are wet This tongue is coated, swollen Someone stop that damn buzzing! Grasping to understand What was my name? Didn’t I have one once? It began with Wretched Why am I […]

A Prayer for Resurrection

sitting at my graveside looking in covered in the dark shroud shredded I gave one too many pieces and committed that final sin that final piece which stole the breath right out of my lungs so ready for you to love me begging starving empty a painted doll with no substance though I desperately craved […]

Sunset Always Brings Reminders

she slips her fingers through her hair as molten drops of the setting sun rest like dew upon her brow she remembers his lips like rose petals along her throat she remembers his voice and the way he said her name wrapping her arms around her knees she closes her eyes and lifts her face […]
