Filth – Jacob Ibrag (Eyes + Words)

Written by Jacob Ibrag They want to go outside and move around. Barefoot among the elements. The dirtier the pavement the better. Filth makes it feel real. Tired of their cleanliness. It’s not that they want to be careless, it’s simply the option of having it. This self made prison and its recycled air. Homes incubatingContinue reading “Filth – Jacob Ibrag (Eyes + Words)”

Rush —Mark Ryan

Humbled, caught in such rapture. Clinging to joy like a root to a tree. No longer myself, yet loved still. Understanding fate’s anatomy. Chaos now silenced, calm like a church. We pray in the days that unfold. Burning them fully like candle wicks of life. Threatened each day by the wind that is blowing. FromContinue reading “Rush —Mark Ryan”
