Scribblings and scrawls of a hopeless romantic soul


Midweek Motif




I no longer chase men
Or strive to tie a broken string
This heart will not set sail again
On the ocean that took them away
Nor will I mirror past mistakes
For I have come to admit:
Whatever leaves, leave.
Whatever stays, stay.

Reckless Prey


Reckless Prey
A Goethe Stanza

You are but a felon with might

Whirling castles; spinning web of lies
Waiting for a victim, ensnaring to plight

Leaving broken hearts and foolish cries


And I am but a reckless prey

Lost and barren and severed wings
Trapped in a mesh, unable to flee

Caught by a spider best at pulling strings
