Distance


My mind
with all the precious
treasures of memories
travels a lot...
but the distance
of its journey
is from
myself to yourself...

    I feel true 'break-down' of language to describe how simply you summed up an overwhelming phenomenon of our lives. (Report) Reply

    My mind
    with all the precious
    treasures of imagination
    travels a lot...
    but the distance
    of its journey
    is from
    being to unbeing... (Report) Reply

Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
