– My Poem –

Ruby, I hope I see you

Waiting in a car

To the sound of a heartbeat pounding away

In the middle of the night

Don’t Let Me Down

Oh baby, don’t you know I suffer?

You grip your hands around my throat

Seems that I have been held in some dreaming state

Cut up and I can’t feel my hands

She calls me from the cold


Wow, that ended up wonderfully tragic. 

Living in the Moment: A playlist

The pressures of life can be so overbearing. We tend to think so much of what the future holds that we forget about the present. We always overthink everything and turn the simple things into complex ones. Sometimes we just need to breathe and appreciate what we have today. We need to take life in and enjoy the simple things that it has to offer.
