A Penny Dreadful

and more shadows
angles of rain
of course
the night
voiceless night

sad jazz spreads
a soothing, cool salve
over an open wound
shattered heart?
all hurt the same
she got so close

I'll live

Roscoe Llane,

Religion will rip your faith off, and return
for the mask of disbelief that's left.

If you enjoyed the time trip, I have succeeded.
I like the style of of the noir / crime writers of the past. Crisp, sardonic, and understated.
thought I'd give it a try myself. I too, enjoyed it

thank you for ALL the times you have commented.
I really do appreciate you thoughts.
