It’s just me, Myself, and I Solo ride until I die No partner to ride or die Just Me Myself and I 32 years in this life Through all its ups and downs All that time only 2 Glorious years with  A partner in crime Through it all I’ve risen and  Beaten the odds time […]

Apathy

Another one that was lost from 2008 Apathy a Sea of Nothing Apathy the bane of my existence The absence of all that makes me human Without hope without emotion I wonder is it a phase or is it forever I have felt it coming for a long time now But how to stop it […]
