‘Our of Need

Prayer
Is even better
For the human mind
Than for his divine soul

A lesson in humility

It shows man
His imperfect being
That in his darkest hour of need
He must turn, with eternal faith
To something, someone, somewhere
He doesn’t even know for sure is there

Annie Mille (Age 17)

Deja Vu

All that I write are repeated lines,
My life, issues spotlighted on a rented stage,
After a few hundred years of literate existence
What else do we have to say?

Cocktail Hour

Just a piece of our conversation captured on paper. Complete with the grease stains of the red chicken we shred with our teeth, forks and knives glistening by candlelight. Your intentions Reflected on the smudged bowl of my empty wineglass. … Continue reading
