Concentrate on the eyes…
Passion and intensity. It’s a complicated fusion. We are catapulted towards death. The mystique I adore is the beating heart of those who share my life. This is their legacy, in obscene glances, laced in silver. I like writing. I do this to amuse myself. It’s my life, and I only get one go around.
This was the result. Like life, it’s tentative, fragile, and halting. And these are the memories gorgeous. And welcome home.
