Recognized you. 

And it was as if the stardust in me recognised your voice- the emotion behind it, your heart, your feelings, your grief, your joy, your past...you.  Recognized you- As an old acquaintance, As a recent meeting,  As a lost love,  As a newfound muse,  As eternity,  As oblivion.

Sober 

The mountain air, my sniff of high Trenches, dips and curves the rides of amusement  Pour my heart down a valley, into a stream of sigh Watch it bungee jump, with no attachment.  The foaming mouths of the ocean waves by the beach My skin dipping on its wonder  Feet inches deep in the depth…

Still…

Dawn  ............................................... Each has share of grief and sorrow,  Each his own bit of love and delight,  But that don't deter the day of tomorrow,  'las the dusk will sink in light. ............................................... ............................

It’s been yet another year.

Hello readers,  So here ends another year in my search for meaningful words, thoughtful phrases, mindful expression...  Though I don't know how far I have succeeded, I do believe these Flaws in my Abyss have found a reason to survive.  There have been all kinds of times. Times when I couldn't stop the cataclysm of…

Bloody affair 

​And you slid down the silk of my throat,  Your eyes were cool, and your steel too bare,  I said:  All blood thine, oh the lover of my flesh, Cradle me close,  Hide this bloody affair. Painting by Simone Pignone
