And then, when my last breath had come and gone
My friends and foes in grievance, some in song
Had both alike
Pensive at their own mortality come
To reflect on my loss of life.

He was still in a dark mood at that was only one of many reasons that letting her in wasn’t smart.

“It can’t be the worst.” She countered, stepping over the empty beer cans and pizza boxes.… Read More
