Clothed pair of soles dressed in faux leather top and synthetic rubber pants, clanking, clanking, against the cobbled, sometimes cemented concrete jungle paths, dreams to be bare and naked against the foliage of the fallen petals of Autumn trees, ready and brave to be pricked with the crisp and thin sun-dried twigs, for the slave… Continue reading s a n c t u a r y

bosom (a conachlonn)

Pain swells in the bosom of a song. Long before the first note of refrain, restrains fail to cease tears from falling.
