The Shape from the Mountain

From the snow capped mountain clambers a mysterious form Each huge step taken a fight against the snowstorm πŸŒ‘ The advancing image is impossible for me to portray It’s an imagining from dreams or possibly the doomsday πŸŒ‘ Footprints in the snow beyond earthly reality Their host can only be arcane beastly πŸŒ‘ Rarely seen, […]

Flee

A solitary soul at peace when he is alone He doesn’t comb his hair nor wear smelly cologne πŸŒ‘ But don’t get me wrong he is not a slob He just can’t see the point of covering his hair with blob πŸŒ‘ Some would say his clothes have seen better days But hey clothes were […]
