Rumores volantRumors fly

Vita contin git. Vive com eoLife happens. Live with it

Tempus edax rerumTime is the devourer of things

Belua multorum es capitumThe people are a many-headed beast

Duc, sequere, aut de via decedeLead, follow, or get out of the way

Fallaces sunt rerum species The appearances of things are deceptive.

Love without a Penalty

We engraved our names
Onto the silence that has bound us,

Where nothing under the sun compares
To the molten grief that we’re condemned to,

Where the hurt shatters like a broken mirror
Destroying our souls’ reflections of each other…

“If you’re mine for a day,
You’ll never let go”

‘if you’re not mine forever…
How can I stay?’

We’re marked
By the nails that hold us in place

Dissolving into the dizzy ragged breath
That makes me only yours.

Always yours.

Is there ever love without a penalty?

You’ll never let go”

Always yours.

Is there ever love without a penalty?

Reality of Being

I know your hurt
Your Words
Your Thoughts
The inaudible accusations
of being Real.

My peeks into the future of what could have been,
Measured up against you,

Your bass voice resounding in my thoughts
Recurring
“You YOU YOU you…”

ME!!
The accusations of being myself.

Once again enveloped in the shell of this harshness,
Beyond your sugared words to come,

There is that person
Whom I thought
existed
only in my nightmares.
