Fallout

I liked the rush, I liked the crunch Never did I look back at the fallout All the unravelings and beginnings and  whispered stories were fodder for adventure there in dark rooms where strangers were lost and found and lost again Somewhere where forces waited to devour innocence and screams went unheard behind curtains of steam and flashes of light Where once sensual, exotic women … Continue reading Fallout
