Many stop and buy
that morning juice .

nonetheless captured for a lifetime..

Crying Myself to Sleep

On Sunday A.M.
And my thought process

Eyelids are heavy,
Red colored, and rimmed.
Its now one-oh-two

Solitude

The unattainable boundaries'
Of Solitude diminishes'
With the word of God,
But the amendable features'
Are complete when you accept
The Lord unconditionally

softly caress
the skin you undress
kisses so tender
while the candles flicker
by the light of the moon
until the dawn looms
in your arms I sleep
loving complete
