Beckoning

My heart beckons me to come sit down

I make time to do so…

To sit and be with her

Reconciling by silence

To sit down.

And just be.

Unpaved Ways

Dusks turn deeper
Nights of no moon
Traipsing in once again
Out come old scars
Ebullitions tear open
With memories she felt
Concealed dim.
With no leaders to guide
She must do what they won’t
All safety taken in stride
She must now pave a way
To protect without strife
Saving young souls
Of her life.

Monday Quote #1

Understand me. I’m not like an ordinary world. I have my madness, I live in another dimension and I do not have time for things that have no soul.
