Releasing yourself to the stars, you feel elated, vibrant, at peace. For once, finally at peace. Problem is, in doing so, you condemned her to walk through the mud alone. You held one wing while she held the other. Her hands reach skyward, a silent prayer on her lips. You fly in ethereal bliss, unaffected. […]

A Vision I Had

I see you on your knees, as if in prayer or supplication, you are nearly weeping and there appears to be a heavy burden weighing on your shoulders and hands now a cloud descends, covers and engulfs you and the mist from the cloud coats your skin and covers your beard like dew and you […]
