BLACK SANDS

Forsaken coasts, who has tread her black sands?



And allowed her bitter waters to brush upon the feet that is bare.



Bare, vulnerable to the scorched minute pebbles of glass;



That compacts between the toes while you’re on your way, on a mission.



Not one in a million, more like millions in one,



Little masses all in my way,



Even the waters gobble them out from shore,



I still find more and more in my path, all in my… Continue

SPAM IS SO NOT COOL!

Please do not greet everyone on the site with large images and announcements of your book or business. Yes, you want to tell the world, but learn the fine art of subtlety. A simple welcome and signature/link is fine. Let them ask you for more.
We have lost numerous members because of the amount of 'friend' mail they instantly receive. This Hurts Everyone.
Spam is unsolicited advertising, whether it is posted as comments on other members' pages or is emailed for marketing purposes.

Please be considerate. Post your advertisement in the proper Articles/Forum or Group. There are free classifieds on the Pages tab. You can post your information on your profile and even update your blog as often as you like.

We are not into censorship, so please don't make us ask you to leave. Be kind and unselfish - don't spam.
SPAMMING IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED
