I hear it, but I don’t understand negative the words and thinking that has been placed on my life by hopeless and miserable niggas and bitches.

I am untouchable to people and systems that seek my… Continue

Honey Moon

what bond is that
which goes through the limits of time
and remains with us
marking our face?


she plays
enters her own words
flies on imagination
wingless recreates life.

of nexusless verses, madness,
of pretended feelings, untruth.
