My life, reduced to a theory,
written by those I once served.

Shalom
I’ve been a man
Trading on stolen time
Stepping on love
Yet look for it in my torn pockets,
Rugged mind, broken heart
Somehow blind, but oblivious

with your teenage angst
except it wasn't
now I know why
and I watch
as you...Read More

Escape

Sardae noticed little about herself that was worthwhile
Looking for flaws, dents, scabs, scars and boo boos.

My freckles make me look creepy
