She was gorgeous in her way She was a caramel bouquet. And for this, I knew not why But she was prettier than I. And the boys knew of this too But she seemed not to have a clue Like she knew not of her face And so I asked her what’s her case. … Continue reading Blackberries
You think I’m irrational. So absurd. Can’t love tradition. I know. “How Heinous”! Will I go down in history nameless? How could I live if my dreams get deferred? I’m scared to speak. I do better with words. You say this pen will not make me famous. Murder my hope then walk away stainless. Won’t … Continue reading Letter to a Non-Believer
