• Nero. commented on the post, profound 7 years, 7 months ago

    There is nothing more profound than true love expressed in full. Not love as one feels in a passion, or in a flutter of the chest– these are but flickers in the dark. True love does not seek to conquer or consume our mortal souls. It lifts us up; and quells our sorrows; It comforts […]

  • Nero. commented on the post, iron 7 years, 8 months ago

    Don’t let the iron cross you bear upon your weary back defeat you and remove the fortitude and strength you carry. The trials that we face are not designed to crush our hearts but rather, meant to test us and prove we’re worthy of human souls. And though long blackness waits for leagues beyond this […]

  • Nero. commented on the post, setting 7 years, 8 months ago

    Do you believe That those who wait Are doomed to be Ignored by fate? Does wanderlust Burn deep within and flare unquenched From dreams unlived? Don’t let your life Be put to waste And spent unlived From lack of haste. Take the risk The leap of faith; Start down the path You wish to take […]

  • Nero. commented on the post, warned 7 years, 8 months ago

    If only the bridges that bound our souls had not been made of glass or wood. If only the love which once had shone could now again be lit anew. But I warned you on a summer’s day that hearts of gold are far too pure For the world moves on and carries with it […]

  • Nero. commented on the post, edge 7 years, 8 months ago

    Don’t lay to waste your precious days ruminating over trifle things. Too much of value slips past the edge when led astray by quick distractions And bathed in light or deep in shadows, this too shall pass. From dawn to dusk on our brief journey fleeting sparks ignite our lives– We rob ourselves of precious […]

    “What happened to us?” “What do you mean?” “Half the time, you can’t even look at me anymore.” “….” “What is it? Do you think I’m fat? Is it because I bought that purse without telling you? Is that it?” “No.” “Then what?” “….” “Tell me.” “Half the time, I realize how ugly you are […]

    “We can’t stay in this playground.”

    “Shut up, dude.”

    “I’m serious, we’re gonna get caught.”

    “Just hurry up and pass the piece.”

    “Fine.”

    ….

    “Man. This is some good shit.”

    “Ha ha.”

  • Nero. commented on the post, playground 7 years, 9 months ago

    I still think back
    to that playground
    where we used to hold
    our two hands together
    (and whisper the day away)–
    like silent petals
    in an autumn breeze.

  • Nero. commented on the post, trees 8 years, 9 months ago

    I sit in the park under the Arch
    looking up 5th Avenue.
    There is so much opportunity around me.

    But instead I shall stay here
    staring at the crowds
    watching the sun filter through the trees.

  • Nero. commented on the post, understood 8 years, 10 months ago

    I never understood
    what it meant
    to love another
    until I met you.

    I wish you had been the one.

  • Nero. commented on the post, under 8 years, 10 months ago

    Whenever I feel down
    I try to remind myself
    that there is a brighter side.

    That nothing is as bad
    as it seems at the time.

    I just hope
    that I don’t
    give up one day
    and go under–
    but only time will tell.

  • Nero. commented on the post, saved 8 years, 10 months ago

    I was saved by the grace of those who love me. It is not so much that they have brought me out of the darkness–rather, they have shown me that there is a light.
