The Silent Laughter

When you're the last one to leave the party, and you feel a feeling that feels like you'll never forget, hold on.

When the world turns against you, and it's nothing but liars and thieves, hold on.

When the sky beats you down and there are no arms to lift you up, hold on.

When the phone doesn't ring and letters aren't written, hold on.

When you're alone in the crowd, hold on.

[Editor's note: Until next year. Thank you for reading.]

The Covering Of The Ground

The biggest scars are unseen and unremembered, always from a smile you forgot long ago. We would never get anything done otherwise.

The Green Curtain

How many hearts would be invaded for the wrong reasons, if each time you said "I love you", you meant it?

The Red Sky At Night

Today, no planes flew into any buildings.

Today, there was no fire falling from the sky.

Today, there were no riots in the streets.

Today, the news was mostly just about famous people.

Today, no shaky footage was recorded of children running from a burning village.

Today, not one person stood in front of a tank.

Today, no one put flowers in the rifle barrels of guns.

Today, you will check your mail.

Today, no shots rang out over a black cavalcade.

Today, there was no negotiated revolution.

Today, no flags were burned.

Today, sport will be played and people will be upset over the outcome.

Tomorrow however, is a new day.

The Place Where Nothing Hurts

There is no music, just the sound of the wind and the leaves it touches. But hopefully that'll be music enough, for you.

The Gang In Blue

The people who police the paradise you live in, make it hell.
