Roses and Chandeliers

A dozen voices Echoing through the room Decorated with everything You could ever hope to love And never want to lose The scent of tea herbs  Mixed with your perfume  Coat me into a thin cocoon  Of sensation Which will keep me warm  For hours and hours When we step outside  Into the howling blizzard… Continue reading Roses and Chandeliers

Closing Credits

And that lovely song at the end hits home like it is meant to tear apart your house. You feel like it… Continue reading Closing Credits
