Overcast thunder and lightning, it’s been raining all night, standing under an umbrella, i am drenched to the bone; its’ been like this for quite sometime, cloudy and overcast, dark clouds lingering in the horizon, threatening to flood the land below; drawing a parallel, my life has been like this, dark,

Broken Hearted The shattering of my heart when you said goodbye Is like the waves of the ocean crashing against the rocks….. I stood there in the doorway Begging you not you leave, But you looked at me and said nothing. Your silence shot through my body Strait through my heart heart

Me, Myself and I coming out of the shadows of the past and reaching to the light that is now shining in its glory i realized i am standing all alone, with the whole world at my disposal; i searched, i needed somebody to continue the exploration, or so i thought; how naive and
