Saint Stephan

Was born a saint That dreamed died at two In the morning Never very good at tying me shoes So now I am older, three times the devil As I dream to see where life leads me I close my eyes To escape the desires I never touched She called me a Romeo, yet I never kissed The love felt I was certain was bliss So I walked away No more waiting, for silly moment’s lost Played all my cards, and all hearts gone And now I dig with grave thoughts in mind For as I stare at the hole below I see where Saint Stephan Died at two

Ha ha, I can relate. I had a friend this weekend ask to read some of my darker pieces. I surprised him when I complied. I think you have done a good job of showing us anothe facet of your multidimensional being.
