A bard’s lost love..

Image Such cruel fate the "Moirai" weave,Yearning souls suffer, tied hands leave,and hearts grieve with shallow smiles."Converge!", "Diverge!" the kismet calls;Puppeteer show and dancing dolls;Life trolls the harrowing miles.

"Poet" dares to create "Veracious opus",Equivocation is skill of pretentious … Continue reading “Poet, Poems and … :P”
