Flabbergast of Love – September 20, 2021

Sometimes It hits me in the face Hard Knocking me out Offended At all she put in And the nothing She got out What is a legacy Without a name A whisper amongst The breeze Was that my job I’ve been carrying so long I’m bloated And ready to gush Set her free I will … Continue reading Flabbergast of Love – September 20, 2021
