The More We Give…?

The More We Give…? ~~~~~ Where we both waited, Lost in summer schemes, We sat close, never knew, Or noticed when our heart Stood up and walked away. We felt the rupture deeply, Inside, a sudden sharp pain. Knew something was gone. We felt bereft and forlorn, Half of who we had been. Yet, I […]

Not where you begin. Like this instrument, You stay who you are. New you is your intent. Inside not; it’s bizarre. ~~~~~ […]
