of greenest leaves, a jubilee.  

One spiraling...

of discontinued imagination.
With our twisting words
you’ll drink in
Our beautiful stories
spun from the nothingness.
Shadows of hope
glimmering in the distance.
Farfetched aspirations
that will never be...

Hoping for Love and Trust

Over his lies
Trust not 

Never again
Now wise

Comes with life
I learned

To share my heart

on longest days
yields peace

Flowing waters
Bring hope

Fretting no more
Heart's strong

Strength builds
Tower of faith

an exchanged glance, fleeting
chocolate brown orbs
swimming in pools of milk
ebony hair...
