Laughter echoes through an empty hall Faded memories that I can’t recall Where did I go? From where did I come? I can’t go with the flow if I’m deaf, blind, and dumb....
No air For body and mind. No air No space to breathe If you're not willingly blind. No air Suffocating Under your bigotry. No air Leave the past behind With your hypocrisy and your philosophies, your racist, homophobic atrocities - It's impossible Not to see People can't breathe with No air.
Yesterday's tears have dried and gone. I ended my fears with the coming dawn. I left with a suitcase and what I had on. Sick and tired of your lies and being your pawn. I remembered my place - where I belong. You always said I wasn't that strong, Well I left our bed and… Continue reading Gone

Acid rain splatters down On a plum-tinted town. About to drown. The sun, once gold, Obscured by the clouds - A smog that enshrouds The rich mines of coal. And the polluted grounds. Humans caused the world to splinter, When they brought on this Nuclear Winter. With their fossil fuels and blatant denial Of Global… Continue reading Nuclear Sunset
I cracked open an ice cold cola and leaned against the porch railing. Looking out over my new farmlands, I let out a contented sigh. It felt right to slow down. Life was moving too fast in the city. I’d only been here a few weeks, but could already sense a difference. I awoke with… Continue reading Home on the Farm
Continued from Abducted - pt 4. Read it here! ***Trigger Warning!*** Paula. I couldn’t believe my eyes. This must be the Paula Rick insisted on ‘naming’ me after.
