Children of Liberty

A little free skeleton  laid resting emaciated Inside a grave or on a bed One could not tell, if tried and spake thus to itself: "If I could flutter my scapulae Maybe, maybe I could fly"     Arqum 12/09/2017Read more …

Grown Up

Red and white spiral striped Straw that I used to slurp Golden sunshine out of the blue sky And neon green Fireflies  Made worthy onlookers at night  As i dipped the moon in its milky light  But those times are gone And life has moved on From being a realm of possibilities  To a finite reality  And now I sit unsheltered under steel clouds As it rains down razer blades On my skinless body  Day in and day out I have grown up, but cannot adapt Some people just are guilt and stars…Read more …
