Site Administrator: Redemption Day

I’ve wept for those who’ve suffered long But how I weep for those who’ve gone Into rooms of grief and questioned wrong But keep on killing.

Site Administrator: Promises of the Storm

So be it… I must reject death, scorch the tears of drippy songs and strip the olive trees of counterfeit branches.
