across time and distance

we exchanged ideas on poetry
his art, the suffering he endured
he preyed upon my compassion
as he meticulously bided his time...
i felt safe as...

You feel hope is like forgotten pennies,
lost at the bottom...
She Calls Me Home

A lost soul seeking acceptance from a unwelcome hand.
She was silent no one ever knew.
The secrets behind her...
Our shadows were so restless
As we passed from room to room;
They pretended to be living
But they died within their tomb
They shrank a little bit...
angst, anxiety, depression,
Unending darkness floods the skies
alone in dreams my heart must weep

His scarlet head droops
towards his soulless emerald chest.
Perched upon a fruitless branch,
