I met him late, one cool Autumn night,

The pale glow of the waning moon brushed his figure in a gentle light.

He set his eyes upon mine with a grave and careful grin,

His ghostly expression led me to recall my each and every sin.

His eyes were a delicate tone of light and earnest gray,

His lips, a ghoulish blue, held the prayers he dare not say.

He crossed towards me at an even and measured pace,

He moved with an air of caution, and...

There is not a more majestic moment than when sunlight graces the red and white striped awning of Rita’s Water Ice signalling the entrance of spring. Just as everyone in the area was doing, I too was flocking to the entrance of this water ice kingdom. My short hair swinging and tiny body hurtling towards my desired destination as I dragged my mother behind me. It was one of the many traditions held in my youth, that after scho...

The door that never closes,

It's waiting for you to run.

Sat in a room with roses,

Which seems a lot of fun.

Maybe you just don't see,

Not as far as you know.

The danger that really is,

The door will never close.
