You Catch My Eye

I heard this poem on Loveworld TV yesterday. It is beautiful.. I just had to go looking for it. You Catch My Eye You catch my eye In the eye of the storm; You hold ointment appointments When hell’s hornets swarm. When I find no time for stillness You tell me there’s still time; When…

I’m in a Relationship

I have been in a relationship One with parasitic benefits I thought it was the best there ever was It wasn’t just what I thought it was Maybe an illusion perceived A feeling desired Just to satisfy self and repatriate others My soul has been eaten up Like the eroded spherical ball surface And am…
