    No Need to Rhyme

    Lollipops And Loving You.

    bittersweet memories, our affections all gone sour, happiness wraps around sugary sweet confections, tongues stained crimson whisper our misfortune.

    Poetry Doesn't Have To Rhyme

    O Ye Little Faith

    When will you learn to take each moment as it comes without faltering.Whining at what it might turn out to be.Your lack of trust is a great handicap, and it is organically tied with your inner wealth. Which turns out to be dust and ashes.

    Poet.
