As A Child I Prayed For Death To Release, Now No More By Jessica Ni Leacai

What a kind creature, you comforting came, When nighttime soured the evening flowers, And I lingered lonely there for you the same.  How helplessly, hanging on has haggard worth, For thoughts imprisoned all these visions, And your dust disintegrating in damned dirt.   Would not … Continue reading
