Oh, we cease to gaze upon the light, such has never been so gray as it seems now. We will pass this by, though, however much we wish to escape, this so faithful bough. As time has dwindled past the ages, we have ceased to ponder the... (more »)

Life is pain? So much pain, all life is sorrow and pain. Calls of help drowned out by the mask we wear. Our tears flowing like a torrental rain. We shout and scream and cry but none will hear. We wipe our face and pretend we’re okay.... (more »)
