Strange...

It is like our situation here
(between you and me)
inside this big, white room
skinning lust and
carelessness.

A normal event of
beautiful incarnation
is happening, but
less popular than a spider
living dead on
one corner of the ceiling.

We are lost again.

  12. I loved the detailing and the way you ended it. Kind of leaves the reader in mystery of what happens next.
