Yep. You found the very word I keep stumbling over. Offers doesn't seem to work either. Perhaps, promises, but that sounds weak. Oh, well. Will likely delete in a day or so.

No Way Out

When your mood is singing,
the glad notes skip across
even mountains that rise to
surround and protect me from
useless hope.

When your notes turn sour and
offbeat, I shield my shaky ego...

There is an affinity among military members that crosses ranks, branches and wars, sometimes even extending to the enemy. I believe "Welcome home" is quite applicable here. Thanks for reading and...

Actually, I was thinking of Stonewall Jackson and his reported last words as he lay dying: "Across the River and Into the Trees." There is more to it than that, but I'm too lazy to research it. It's...

I swing through the air
of sweet nothings,
grabbing at the bar
of all you want me to
believe.

Catch you with a

It's strange about sepia photos. When I look at them, my thoughts are that they are that way because they are old. That's true, but not because they evolved; they have been well-protected. The...
