Unto The Final Battle

Unto The Final Battle

Look deep enough into any person and you will find something shining within. ~Haruki Murakami I have stopped merely looking deep into my eyes to find a shining within, instead escalated to excavation, to scraping layer after layer of detritus, bloody-fingered scratching examining through every millimeter for something, anything shining within my soul.

Epitome of the Illogical

They are a cynosure, barren landscapes beckoning my pen, thirsty to drink my ink that giggle with every stroke leaving a monochrome tattoo. Ruled pages, on the other hand, are terrifying, overbearing, depressing to my creative tendencies.

I’ve Forgotten My Face
