– will we be? –

My phantom… made of atoms… born from a woman’s womb just like me. We were ignorant, but blissful… no sight of any missile coming for our throats – guess that’s how the story goes. My phantom… once my anthem… singing on a living room couch nightly. Now taxes, taste, and tattletales some- how got in […]

– karma, big and bad –

My former crush has a new job now, won’t come back ’round today. Happy, then sappy, not gladly but madly feeling some type of way. One chance to throw my first love in his face has spiraled down the drain. One shot to  flaunt my first love in his face may as well been in vain. ~ Karma could […]

I play pretend in my realm of Technicolor daydreaming. On the schedule this evening, the compelling saga of two foreigners, aliens to the Earth, plotting against all odds to seize it for themselves. The tag team engages in secret language, coded wording known only to them. They scheme… they conspire… they send kissy-face and heart […]
