We dug our graves with our bare hands, carved our tombstones with lines of our favorite poems.

I fear a fox’s cunning hiss after I’m fooled.I fear that there will come a day in which all that I ever stood for gets eaten up and spat out upon my eyes.     I truly believe that it would be the day that I wish I could no longer see.  X marks the place […]
