We shattered our dreams,

And found they were hollow all along.

We did not even try to piece them back together.

tiger. We’ll see you again 

on the way back down.

I find a small piece 

of my soul just sitting by 

the side of the road.

A good compromise 

would be for guns to hold just

is incidental compared 

to understanding.

in the red market.

However briefly, 

smoke outlasts fire. This is how 

the afterlife starts.
