Are you breathing?

Are you beating?

Are you bleeding?

Are you broken?



Heart pounding

Blood surging

In pieces


Do they

    It’ll be good if they hospitalize for love, I think it’s a sickness more painful than other sicknesses.

    Do they hospitalize for love? – Good question. If they do, I’m sure the insurance won’t pay for it 🙂 Nice work, Shawn.

  9. even if they did have a cure, would we rather settle for painkillers instead!

  10. No. Been sick bad for 35 plus years! ❤ ❤ ❤

    The most rare and incurable disease from the oddest uncreated thing…both disease and cure, desert and house of healing, mountain austere and oasis verdant.

  11. He was bitten by love
    Like the bite of the snake
    That neither kills you nor let you die
    And venom ran into his veins
    Like blood.
    The hiss travelled in his body and his soul
    It played like a flute in his dark long nights
    and left him sleepless with maddening ecstatic pain
    He would let go all he had
    Of himself the most
    But for the rest of his days
    All he wanted was to stay irrecoverable!

    Loved reading you, Shawn; stay in touch!
