and finally escapes […]
sticks to your mouth
distracts you from what’s happening below
turmoil and disruption
turning and tumbling
almost on the verge of apocalypting
but you take out a piece
and stick it in your mouth
it takes […]
it lights up
it burns out
over and over
you replace them
and they let you down
toss away the ashes
like you were meant to do
you’re a fool
to throw away the sparks
that could have lit this world
and sent […]
My spine was bent,
My eyes were blind,
My legs pull back,
My arms unwind.
Until he threw the mud at my face,
With I expecting to fall to disgrace.
But I was cured with a miracle that night,
For all was […]
Hearing everything for it truly is. Why is that so hard? Why is it so hard to listen, and take every single word into account. And take it as the truth.
Simply, it’s difficult.
The truth can be impossible to […]
Chapped lips. From the cold. Blizzard. Wind.
Fierce winds have no mercy, a traveler realizes as he wanders down a hidden road. Winter can be a mighty club to the heart. Chapped lips. Frozen heart. Searching for […]
Know what’s going to happen in the future. Look into that glass ball, see into the foggy distance, using your knowledge and your intellect. You don’t know what’s ahead. No, you know what’s ahead.
