I’d love to get a horse when I turn seven -
I’ll ride him in the sky way up to heaven.

I love when...Read More

A Night Before
The night before... I was in turmoil
Wait... was it the night before?

Because of the lies we learn to...Read More

Stolen cleverly when he kissed the soft colourful petals

To taste once more my honeyed life and my blossoming day.

The journey that changed me
Hardly anyone would I trust,
In my dark days, they are now past,
Altered me was the journey last,
And the change came rather too fast.

And I didn't have the strength enough,
To take on the forces...Read More

My favorite legend still has salt on it,
white freckles left from the sea of Colchis.
