Paradise Regained

Through one man Paradise was lost. Through another it was regained. As the cloak of darkness encircled the earth, as it fell silent the rescue plan was initiated. The one who had been there since the beginning came down and chose our form. Hands that had flung stars into space now accepted all the constraints... Continue Reading →

Paradise Lost

As much as I want to escape it, Paradise lost begins with me. No matter how many excuses “It’s not my fault because…”.

Timeless Love

Love is a very powerful weapon. But our minds convince us that we do not need it. We can survive on our own, using our own love for resources. You reject my love.
