The dark shadows flicker, hapless waves crash —
against the abyss a lover’s hopes dash.

Latter years, melancholic, dressed in black,
arrival of the vampire’s curse...

Choices
by Laycie Premoe
Fear courses through me
Another day passes
Jobless and on the hunt
Sleeping on an unknown couch
Errors and lies lead to angry families
Run
Help
Fear
Homeless?
Idaho?
No.
Stay
Even if it's not good
Love 
Fear
Hate
Confusion
Help!
Please!
