Black and White Night

Black and white night Restrained This old body’s not holding out Pain In so many places The kids at the diner are playing songs from their youth What is my soundtrack? Who plays these songs for me? The damaged The used On the cusp Seasons soon to change What will the kids play next? They […]

The 5am

  The 5am So many reunions in my dreams My eyes burn at the light Cool breeze on skin A cool breeze from the window Still Dark Still the lights Is the world awake yet? Are my sins back? A sin called reality calls On so many nights like these So many haunted faces come […]
