I often gaze, Lazy stares, full of care, Blank expression bears maze of ambition, I often gaze.
So just a little bit of background as this poem has like two different patterns. It came to me suddenly and abruptly since I had an amazing Valentine’s day. It’s just about how all my favorite things whether simple or not, still are lovely. And how I see and relate this person to the feelings […]
