A Lone Traveler
A solitary spirit / Effeminate in form Asphalting miles of memories / Treading many a storm: Intellectual roads / Laid with diamonds and dust Carnal paths / La…
Molecules of Moments... A Poetry in Pieces
Night / a weeping willow of water wails / a worried wind stumbles into / a lonely acacia dovening in the desert / a compassionate river runs recklessly / over brooding b…
Molecules of Moments... A Poetry in Pieces

The Lioness that Dwells Within
A feline dwells in your caverns of consciousness / Dauntless and determined her insignias of strength / Landscapes withered by winds of shallowness / Embrace her and harrow Man's badlands of descent Rocks of conformity will bruise perception / Caves of…
