This isn’t love (love does not take  from you)-  9/15/2020 you say this is love, tears mingling with your pleas. skin pale, teeth rotting  from decay; how can you call this love when it drains you?  robs you of joy and leaves you with nothing but scraps to keep warm?   you deserve  a feast […]

float or dive

it took me awhile to blossom, To open up my petals, to show the world my face. you took me under your wing, showed me how to hold my head up high and to never let the world see me cry. every song reminded me of you, every cloud bore your face, you were the […]
