I’ll save a place for you. Where we can look behind us and remember. Or maybe, we’ll decide to let it go. What brought our souls together was the fight. Forced into the struggle for our lives. I’ll go first, I’ll save a place for you. When you came down, I found out just how […]

DEVOTION

Could you give yourself away a thousand times, Before they start to recognize  Devotion in its purest form, A bouquet of roses, for a handful of thorns? Could you gift to her a melody That plays into eternity, In hope for what may never be,  And surrender your pride so easily? Some of us are […]
