NIGHTWALKER

NIGHTWALKER

Tossed and turned vehemently again. Apathetic and stoic you show no signs of a struggle. Our what feeds our why halted only by our when. At the scene of our crime remains unsolved our puzzle.

I Am Afraid

I Am Afraid

There. I said it. Bring on the Calvary! Sound the alarm! Blow the trumpets in Zion and quote every single scripture on fear you know and I will say them right along with you.
