    Will He Be My Reality?

    Lost without a smile, Tears that flowed with the wind, Each night and day, I close my eyes and dream of hope, The shattered emptiness crushed my soul. The cracks in my fragile heart slowly slipped away, I look to the sky as my wrists cry, I find hope in the darkness, The...

    Exit 27 (by moi) The motorway sign says exit

    27. A number or an age? Hendrix, Joplin, Morrison, Winehouse and Cobain, Exit stage left in premature rage... As for us...? Driving on and on... When we press home on your "sat nav", What exactly does that mean?

    Ballad of Felicity Rose And they laughed

    as he came into town, Hair too long, and clothes long worn, “His eyes ain't right,” whispered one. “Best warn the others,” a knowing nod, “There's a stranger in our midst, tell one 'n all.” The bartender paled into them crooked eyes, He tossed down a coin, “Gimme...
