Lines on paper

Lines of lies

Lines on your forhead

Lines of time

Scars written in blue ink

Signed with red wine

Burning my little self, my littleMe Mind

Scraps of Me

Ripped ON Old Paper

Manuscripts

Rewritten, Burn, Burn, Burned.

Lies

Lies Like

Crumpled pieces of you

All that you did

Only I knew

Candles lit, dripping at night

YOU ARE PAPER

I stop your rewrites here

Lies in the fire

Lies ancient, Lies new

Kindling. one, three, two

Memoirs of Time, Flickery, flick

In the flames you will go, blow blow below

One line at a time, one lie at a time, one lifetime blistered

by my Father of Crime.

About the Creator

ROCK

Writing whether truth or fiction, feels as if I am stroking across a canvas, painting colorful words straight from my heart.

I am both a USA and Swedish citizen; from my old farmhouse in western Sweden I tap into my muse via nature.
