NIRVANA

For there I stood, on the shore, With bent legs and folded arms Watching my burnt ashes float, Slowly. They travelled a distance, sinking and then, Completely dissolving in the holy water. Bid my younger self adieu, reaching my hands To the river, helping it take me to the infinite ocean To a place beyond imagination, far… Continue reading NIRVANA

Until the next…

It stinks in my chest, burns my core, But… Continue reading An Ashy Gray Void
