Favorite Quote:
"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." - Gandalf


Do not look far into

the chemical fog of ashen cinder

This haze tarnished

We are the storm.


One stale gasp,

hold onto a withering past

We will not collapse.


Deeper in

the hidden devastation

A chorus of streaming notes.

An organ thumping a discordant chord


Watch the mortal reality

Scarred and stained

A process repeated

Clinging to possession

Crumbles in discarded excess.


We breathe only out of habit.

And yet we have this, this

organ that we take for granted.


Hold onto this for the end of time.
