Long, slow kiss in the sun to make us

Open to more life, a poem

Void of pain; lust; envy; vice, just soft and home.

Each day new ways to show and say, β€œI love you.”

    Short and sweet. Hi steph. Gone are the days of simplicity and innocence, when one wrote the poems and stories for the love of it, and not having to pit everyone and everything against each other. I feel lost in the translation of the thing I once loved to do so much. The rat race is making me a bit sad. But changes are a part of existence. I hope you are doing well my friend. Just musing on the rumbles and motions of time. Be well.
