I tried to push people away.AndContinue reading “Beautiful Disaster”

The Longing

It’s freezing in the shade of your absence.But absence makes the heart grow fonder, right?

Show me the ugly and the visceral.Your darkest thoughts and secrets.And the words thatContinue reading “Pretty Little Fears”

We’re lost souls, you and I,Attracted to the wild.YearningContinue reading “Our Escape”
