Depleted

Summer sunshine, unable to brighten this darkened room. I am listening to the muffled breathing. My battery died, I’m unable to provide the time. Hope is unable to restore the […]

Placebo

There is no cure for this tragic circumstance. Cover your words. The treatment comes in a mysterious vial. It helps the fine linen on your lips. Something is better than […]

Damaged Days

I lie awake at night, unable to sleep. I have never felt the weight of chaos this immensely, so much time wasted in isolation. Now, I’m waist-deep in tragedy; the […]
