Popular Insecurity

The wall I once sat on Looks taller down here. I don’t think I’ll ever–never put together–get up again. At once, I set high standards And sat on high places, Shifted around and slipped between tough spaces. The fall down was bearable, But, the impact? Pain. All that remains is regret graven on face; Something … Continue reading Popular Insecurity

The Forgotten Prayer

The subtle hint of leftover daylight caused me to question my use of time. There was nothing more to do with it. A window closed here, another opened beyond. Opportunity flew … Continue reading Life’s Decaying Diary | Day 1 – Omniscient Predicament
