BORN OF PAIN / STOLEN NAME

Born of pain cursed to live that way

A forgotten name marked with shame

Guilt by association becomes your fame

 

A stolen name becomes the scares on the back of a forgotten man.

Fading away to become the dust of another land

Bitterness replaced by forgiveness justice is a slap of the back of a hand.

 

Born of pain the mind struggle the mental slaying 

The community broke...

An afternoon's letter

A word,

 

whispered

in secret;

 

A name,

 

dropped

there-under;

 

A woman,

The transparent 

afternoon,

 

splashed

 

​on her

who we are:
dreamer, poet, 
old soul, 

who despite living 
an alternate reality, 
believes in passion, 
love, happily ever after...

This will be the first right step to our future 
To achieve our goals while we're alive 

Your name and countr...

Hello, my name is _____

"Hello, my name is _____"

Hello, my name is a combination of contradictory words strung together...

witty-anxiety-lost-dedicated-resourceful-strong-dorky-emotional-free spirited-

If you wish to know my one true name, you must learn to read between the tangled and frayed lines...

My name is in the spaces between.

Call me The Baron. My full name is Nicholas Arthur Armbrister. I bloody hate that name! Do you know how I feel? My first name used when I’m naughty. “Nicholas, you’ve had a new tattoo!”

You must be part German with a name like that. Say it slowly out loud:

A-R-M-B-R-I-S-T-E-R.

They got images of Hitler’s panzers and Blitzkreig, Stukas and goose steps. No denying my heritage, I’m part Ge...
