Tuned Out

The busyness of the world around me.Becomes nothing more than a dull hum.A little bit of white noise. Can’t keep my attention for more than just a second.  Put my headphones on and turn up the music. Tune out from the world around me. I drift here. In a space that's all my own.  Out of sync with...

Scarlet Door Part 3 (#700)

Turncoat

Her words were so sweet.That I couldn’t taste the poison.Our fates chained together.I had thrown away the key. Even then, when the darkness reached for me.I did not... Continue Reading →
