Those early mornings
when the hour
has yet to turn into daylight,
darkness is the chalice I sip from
hearing the mumbles of nightmares
still clawing their way into my awareness.

Poetry is my first love. Inspired by intuition & my chunky ginger cat. My favorite place is by the sea, sipping espressos and daydreaming.
