"Reality is something you rise above".
Liza Minnelli. 

To rise above our daily reality
Is indeed a most intriguing concept,
To face our flaws in all their totality
May be very difficult to accept,
Even supposing our minds are adept;
While I appreciate the idea,
I do...Read More

Premium Member Can a Fool Descibe Love
Can I describe Love?

A path of the fool,
Words expressing sensation,
Shimmering spark of sun, diamonds on a pool,
Red bird lifts head, water elations,

Thoughts emerge from where?
Whether image, pain, longing desire,
Reality skirts away, with a wide tear,
Smoky haze, warmth to the core,...Read More

There's someone behind me
Following me,
Copying me,
As same as me.
I looked behind,
There was nothing.
I looked down
And there was she,
As usual.

But she’s not loyal
She only lasts in light
And leaves in dark.
And if not
Then makes me afraid,
Of course, That’s just my shade.

But it’s...Read More
