12:00 a.m.



and all of the sudden
i looked around
and i was alone.
like there had never been anyone else
before that emptiness.

and all of the sudden
the fire went out
and the rain came.
like my clumsy heart had forgotten to seal away the tears
again.

but.

if i am alone now
it is because i was with them then.

and if they are only a good dream to me
i shall not be afraid of falling asleep
anymore

  8. Adelaide, I love this. You have an amazing gift with prose. Never stop writin, ya hear?

    I was wondering what you use to edit your photos. I've been looking at getting some software but I have no idea where to start looking.

    Thanks,
