Most Nights

They use to call me J-Bird. Now only my mom call me that every once in awhile. I don’t really like the energy associated with it anymore. Flashbacks of small sounds of just a simple click that would get you in a mode. Nothing is safe and if we die here let my sister know…

Matter…

Truth of the matter is it’s been awhile since we talked like this. I told you I love you and I meant it with all of my damaged heart. I just wish I didn’t say it so soon. But I would never time travel to change how I feel about you. We finish each other’s…
