Portrait : Everyday Was The Same



Glass of Beer and Playing Cards » by Juan Gris)

but she wouldn't notice

it always felt so bad

Architects Of Progress

it was a number, a goal, an ideal

it was not just any other whim

yet, in a sense, how could it be otherwise ?



had it been the many… Continue

More talented lover



That which you won't challenge

Can't ever make you wise

But that which you surpass

In freedom makes you rise



That which you merely… Continue
