Love comes to those who...

That signal so far
Is there a tower, some beam
That could speak to that distant star
A million miles

A Few Nothings
To love someone,
Then, to suddenly hate
Dig own dungeons
Then why blame the fate?

When ‘pen is mightier, than the sword’

		On cruise-control
The nameless helmeted...
