Poetry Blogs (2021, End rhymes)
They come to me when things are still
And leave me without choice to hear
The things I've heard and know too well
Of tired topics,
To be clear
I, myself and just the ears
Without chance to think, or speak
It seems all I do is overhear

my frail hands reach for you,

It turned out to be a brilliant idea; I was excited, like...
