this delicious fire / feels so much sweeter / than….

a noise grows inside of me


you linger / like an imprint / residing deep inside of me

ashes to ashes

little pieces flicker off…

Music man

forges stars and constellations / that vibrate across my skin
swimming in the sunlight, i will always fly back to you by ShadowDancer

butterflies make love on the tips of sunbeams
the place at the sea where my tears stained my lens by ShadowDancer on the rocky shore you will find her.. still waiting for his return by ShadowDancer

straight, with salt and a lime

I keep these days / you have left me / in a bottle of cuervo
