Random Poem:


Point the finger at me, I prayed for something true.
You are you and I am nothing. Just a hunter for a weak heart.
I meant no harm, but distance is the devil.
You are you and I am nothing, just a misdirection.
The words you spoke, subtly sincere, subtly guarding your heart.
With strings attached.
I'm sure you knew.
I burned the bridge between, and there is no telling you.
Virtual deception.
I can remember your face.
Life remains, I'm sure you knew.
A force against us. Chronologically fucked.
It was me, I'm the one that ducked.
