The Bandit

In the shadows he stood; the most notorious bandit of the West. As I entered the motel, his eyes met mine. I looked around, the streets were empty. I walked on, slowly. His hand fell on my shoulder. I prayed he wouldn’t shoot. His deep voice echoed in the stairway.

“Can I borrow your lighter?”

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
