The End

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

The cataclysmic boom, sliced the gloom Of turgid twilight, that consumed Endeavors that never left the brain’s loom People cowered at self-made doom The nihilistic bloom Swallowing decaying rooms whilst housewives bake macaroons There is no escape, we took the bait Couldn’t wait but left all too late A heart sealed, mouldering tomb The despised […]

On This Night

NPD 2016

Thursday, October 6th, 2016
