Exhortism is my middle name

365 challenge


Isn't that the damned colour that fills in your dreams?

Cannot forget now, cannot forget how

Isn't that the evasion a memory thinks is too keen?

Cannot forget how, cannot forget now

On nothing, no nothing lives out in these streams....


Pay me. Pay Me!

Your thoughts and your dreams.

Pay me your sanity and I'll leave you

my factions, dying in ill temper,

Crying to cut off that cord
