About this thing we had;
That used to be passionate,
About the thing we shared;
That used to be ecstasy,
About the thing we nurtured;
That used to be unending,
About the thing we cherished;
That used to be unrehearsed,
Feeling no regret
About the thing we smothered;
That used to be our love,
Feel like suffocation.

We actually wrote and illustrated four weekly episodes that we passed around to our friends for their reading enjoyment. Those were the days.
As I got older, I found Continue reading
