patience is virtue,'tis wholesome and attractive,we lovers waiting.but I! am not a soft doll,to simply wait, contented.
Something about loving you,Makes me hate something about myself,And how I wish this didn't sound likeA teenager's Instagram post.
It's not that I'd forgotten it, Nor ignored what day it is, The words just failed to form aloud, Made mute by my cowardice.

Always a pleasure … Continue reading Discarded Tinsel
I buried myself in verdant leaves,Which grew damp in crimson dreams,And with the taste of winter on the breeze,I find comfort in these faint memories,Lost now in deep roots of ancient ash trees.
