Official launch of the new product is coming soon, thank you to everyone who has stuck by year after battling year…. I hope you enjoy what is to come…

Sorrow found me when I was young,
Sorrow waited, sorrow won.
Sorrow that put me on the pills,
It’s in my honey it’s in my milk.
It’s only about half a heart alone
On the water,
Cover me in rag and bones, sympathy.
‘Cause I don’t wanna get over you.
I don’t wanna get over you.

older works, cause i feel old and used up…

from both ends of this
the sun sets
that doesn’t mean it’s ending
it doesn’t mean this candle is
all burnt up

im not sure
about anything
especially
all of this glam
are you sure it was to gleam
like this

i believe it is time
to turn
back
though we won’t make it home tonight

and now
no lies and no sun
and all this sense makes little sense
ill tear that fucking mouth from your face
