Drumsticks, Social Butterflies, and Wallflowers

Brandon writes about different types of social personalities and how they function in group settings.

Be

Baby boy, be brave, Be benevolent, behave. Be unburdened, bare and bold, But obedient to what you’re told. Before you begin to be, Break no bonds with me.

Now the birds dance through the Hall, Partnered by theContinue reading “Empty Kingdom”

Graphic

There was a door with caution tape across it in an “X” and the tape read “Crime Scene Do Not Cross.” Naturally, his curiosity got the better of him. HeContinue reading “Graphic”

It usually starts with something small Sometimes I don’t know what it was at all Sometimes I do I add more to it, things that don’t even relate My mind spins as it gets bigger, inflates Like a spiral, it grew I’m so far out that I can’t trace it back to where it beganContinue reading “Spiral of Depression”
