Till death do us part

As Shakespeare once said “The route of all heartache is expectation”  You can’t expect anyone to love you but you can always hold on to that inner hope. You have to loveContinue reading “What is love?”

The empty shell 🐚

A hollow shell, A silent wave Frothy shores and empty caves Pick up the shell and listen to the sea Listen to its calling when it’s calling you to me Grains of sand and shades of stone Who knew it would be so peaceful to be so alone.
