You Are So Precious


You are so precious.

Don’t ever think otherwise.

Flowers bloom from dirt.

White Fluffy Carpet


White fluffy carpet.

It shot us up to the sky.

Screaming pain and joy.

Lions Talk to Me


Lions talk to me.

Beasts who guard the gates of death.

Heroes just hear roars.

We Burn Much Hotter


Bombs fall around us.

You hold me. It’s not scary.

We burn much hotter.

You said, “We were dead.”


We talk in silence.

Closer than when we were real.

You said, “We were dead.”

At Night They Gain Ground


At night they gain ground.

Meditate to my music.

I still hear footsteps.
