Letters to Will

Love What better emotion can you feel? You feel it in joy You feel it in tears Amidst the hate, love is still buried deep.  6 feet under, with or without reach, love lingers. I loved you, I still do. I loved the smiles, I loved the joy, I loved the tears I loved the…

Illusion pt. 7: Confrontation

Illusion pt. 6: Suspicions

“What do you mean by you think he’s dead, go see the doctor” I urged Boma “He is, I’m sure, I’m sorry, I just can’t believe it.” “I’m on my way.” There really wasn’t much I could do when I got there except try to comfort his weeping mother and promise to visit. Turns out…
