Valerie (Black birds-Vessels of darkness...
Sometimes she sits in her chamber Recounting clearly the words of amber ‘They will come on wings by the day And your nights obscured, in spite of your pray’
with our fingers knitted into one like a cracked verse we stood in the space between elegy and romance
if looking good makes you happy then glow with radiance (like the sun) if finding wisdom is your ultimate source of joy
the first lines we knew were on the ebony plains of grandpa's ridge with streaks of red
tell me- tell me who sought those paths where we seek to find who broke that jinx
living in full existence what is life? some moments of laughter the euphoria of existing
Quotation on love: it takes courage and purity to play the games of the heart with sincerity of purpose. anything to the contrary is cowardice and corruption of the spirit. Quotation on friendship:
Tale Of A Schizophrenic
I see am in the corner of my eye Astonished, apathetic, bewildered, and relaxed It’s another day I search through my minds relics

Even A City Dares To Dream
As aurora spreads her influence lazily
across the scattered skies
she hatches first
the wingless flicker of hope

that bears heavily upon the straws
that shields despondency
from waning hearts
she perches coyly
on this caked art of clay
casting a mirage
upon her tar-less back
with sun scorched patterns
like the fading presence of a rainbow
