The Silent Sands of Illness

This is a new rendition of a poem I wrote on my blog. The Silent Sands of Illness Spheres be fed the blackened beast, For long to fill his gluttonous feast. Not life itself could escape it’s grasp.

Melancholy – A Poem

“And so being young and dipped in folly, I fell in love with melancholy.” Edgar Allen Poe Hello. You’re back. I remember you well.

You are ugly, yet comfortable like my old favorite, ripped up,… Continue reading Melancholy – A Poem

My Dear Old Friend

You use to help me when I needed you the most. Dependable. Reliable. Confident. Creative. Sharp. Quick with the wit. You helped me find the perfect words to say.
