    The Flower Show

    The dawn cues the show to start As my window curtains part. . To look upon the cast a story Amidst the purple morning glory. Seen below the morning star Sits rows and rows of lavendar. . A yellow dot with white clouds hazy A color script just for the daisy. A worm that pays the...

    A menace to society Making decisions

    The Cloudy Dark And Screaming

    I met myself on the street today, I was looking rather pale. My eyes were red, my hair unwashed, I didn't look too well. I tried to find the courage, To ask me what was wrong. I've known myself for quite some time now, We used to get along. He looked at me with anger, I've never...
