Lead

He appeared as flower
He was lead
A vision of power
Though was dead

Atop a tower
Skin was shed
Still every hour
Lies were said

A sky or cower
Appearance is dread
Every soul he will devour
To sin he’s pled

I fear his evil scour
The darkness he fed
And underneath the devil’s bower
More evil was bred

Sometimes I wonder if I peered into Pandora’s box or if I am Pandora’s box. Uhm, my eyes bleed.

The fall from heaven is a terribly long one. Helps.

My cousin makes chocolate – she has a business she started up but it’s local to her only. But she sent me a box for Thanksgiving. It’s still hot as hell in Florida so she was worried about sending me chocolate afraid it would melt. She put a little cool pack in it and it arrived safely and I made a little video! I’m obsessed with chocolate, FYI. Hook me up with an IV please. ๐Ÿ˜œ
They are delish! She has a gorgeous little set-up when she does local events. This is just a little chocolate selfie. Is that a thing? ๐Ÿ˜Š
The names of the chocolates she made. I have a few left. Been trying to ration. May get more for XMAS now that we know they’ll arrive safely. I normally only get bills in the mail so I love receiving snail mail especially arts and food. ๐Ÿ˜
My energy levels have been so low but I’m working in my studio today recording spoken word for my Patreon. About to hit up the Starbucks though because she also sent me a gift card and that coffee will be great today. Need that extra kick! ๐Ÿ‘Š

Despite being tired, I wrote this poem this morning before I even brushed my teeth. Lazy has never been in my resume. Off to Starbucks – then recording in my studio!

I hope you all are having a fantastic holiday and getting some love out there!

Thanks for checking out my work and for supporting independent artists! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Been spoiling myself with 2 a day LOL. They are super fancy chocolates and delicious! Very nice treat to receive in the mail! She’s about the only family I have left! Rather, she’s about the only one who treated me as I was part of the family. I’ve cut everyone else off. So the holidays can get even lonelier but this cheered me up! This and my free Thanksgiving meal from the VFW. Otherwise, nadda. But it gave me a chance to practice my video making skills. ๐Ÿ˜Š
