Premium Member A Light at the End of the Tunnel

And would return refreshed and happier, we had...Read More

Baring the brunt of betrayal, 
his long-time lady lover leaves him

FAKE WORLD
She has always had a fixation
For time travel
Until she accidently
Discovered a portal
Once she stepped inside
It was quickly spontaneous combustion
As her molecules traveled through time
While trying to navigate
The speed of her movement
After she arrived, and looked around
She was intrigue, when she...Read More

He had a pleasant face,
Quite handsome in a lived-in kind of way
His features were irregular, not perfect
And his expression was kind

His hands were large and capable

Great people have one desirable quality~~
humility.
You won't find them looking

ahead of the pack.
Somehow the winds of the seas,
are the sails at their...Read More

Days he breathed his words of worth,
beyond his measured existence,
he is not negatives of a photograph
