Tried to remember but my feelings get old for sure

Tried to recall but it's gone

Lucky stars in your eyes

DIARY OF A BRINE SHRIMP

 

I am a terrible person.  I hide my pathological indifference behind a façade of congeniality.  I drift into people and I ruin their lives.

 

Except for Her.  She would not let me ruin Her life.Read full post »

The Apples of My Eyes

Passion for others alive doesn't last
Passion for the dead is eternal
Passion for art or craft is passion for myself
Oldest friends corrode like apples
Fallen from the tree in the garden

PASS BY THE MINUTE

Pass By The Minute

People pass by the minute
A waterfall at the edge of the world

Well dressed?

We don't know why

Fruit

Another creature
Hunting what to do
Until death

Blooming without expectation
Unto yourself this moment sufficient

Bid farewell

SOCRATES DIED TODAY

Socrates, you died today 
I love you and you are still my cat
Mom says you wurrrrr my cat but God wants you now, Mom says just like God wanted my Dad
God does just what he wants
When I do just what I want I get in trouble
