It’s all I have at this time.

The rest is bonus.

That’s When She Appeared


Reality died.

I re-wrote the way it ends.

That’s when she appeared.

Can I Get A Connection?


Drafted laws. Too dry.

Can I get a connection?

Made them alive with fiction.

Did you cry when the boy died?

Now do we have a connection?

The Sun Will Return


Flip the switch for light.

Sometimes it doesn’t turn on.

The sun will return.

A Little Party


A little party.

I will make it to know you.

Twenty-thousand strong.

Stranger, I Want You.


Your smile, your look.

The way you dance to the beats.

Stranger, I want you.

It Will Protect You.


I must let you go.

I hope you still have the stone.

It will protect you.
