By Tonny Wandella Our delusions have wrecked us in many instances,Thoughts like;There are no more broken people behind gregarious stints,And neither are there any voices left in reserved souls.A times there are only horrid faces projected to dazzling reflections.Horrid thoughts that are ever brewing behind the smile and smice;of anxiety and chaos, of pain andContinue reading EMOTIONALLY RIGHT: ETERNALLY FLAWED
