Because you have never been right... You left and all I thought, Every single f*cking night, Was how difficult I must have been. How much I must have messed with you, For you to leave so easily.

I don't know how to start this. How do you write something like this? I wish there was a simple way. A way to say, 'I'm sorry for what happened', without sounding as distant as the moon. Maybe it's too soon to talk about this, but then I can't miss this time. I wonder how … Continue reading We can Never Forget what They saw. (Spoken Word)

We romanticise the … Continue reading It was Never Glorious (Spoken Word).
