Theme For August 5th! Humble Beginnings

…Steal my pride, Leave me blind, Steal my pride, And leave me blind, blind, blind now…” Boogie Woogie Woogie to sounds of the fall and please ignore the woeful screeching of my attempts at singing.

Sanity and stability and solid foundations
Of hesitations and reservations and realizations…
Get run over and passed through.
I’ve left:
Paw prints on practicality;
Muddy indents on reality;
Grass stains and broken twigs on morality. Continue reading Free Verse – Lust – JG
