THE PHONE BOOK VOL.2 or Oh, Elizabeth, did you have to get him started?



dnobi

pink shirt, bold expressive
writer, self-assured
of himself and the world


emery, lily

waste not a tear on the past
for it obscures your vision
to the rainbows in your future



Greylon

O' what purpose lies beneath
A heart that loves in certitude
To be torn asunder by fecklessness

It beats to rise above pettiness

And stand testament to perseverance

as always...to be continued...
