In Darkness, Light

It’s been a long time, A long time running in the woods Crying on tree stumps, Mourning yesterday These shadow games I’ve played Setting the stakes against myself The yields of low expectations, Leading me time and time again to the precipice of my own demise Thinking, this can’t be life I never meant toContinue reading “In Darkness, Light”

Mindsight: Going Back to The Start

The Substance of The Soul

Edit: I’m beating myself up after publishing this. It’s not that I don’t like the content, which was inspired by a conversation I had tonight with two new friends. The problem is, this is simply not the right form. There is a reason Victor Hugo wrote Les Miserables. I must work on my stories. ThisContinue reading “The Substance of The Soul”
