It was
a bad year for all,
but 2020 is
merely an illusion.
The arrow of time will

Mitch Prax Nov 27

Diary Excerpts #31
Mitch Prax Nov 8
Dear Diary;
I think I've figured out
why I enjoy staying up so late.
It's 2:44 am
and the world is quiet.
No one expects anything from me
nor do I expect anything from anyone.
It's just me
and the silence.

The Sharpest Knife
Mitch Prax Nov 7

so broken that your

We are left with such hatred

The Voyage
Mitch Prax Oct 20
The nights
are growing darker
and the waves
are getting rougher
Surrounded by
darkness and disarray,
I make my haven
in this boat built for two.
This love is an ocean
beneath a sky of uncertainty-
it consumes us night after night.
But, together,
we take this voyage-
just me and you.

Like Lavender
Mitch Prax Oct 19
Like lavender,
this world is a brighter place
because of your beauty
and your grace.
Like lavender,
there is something about you,
so wild yet so soft,
that gets me through.
Like lavender,
you have a scent so divine,
and I have been blessed
to call it mine.

I wonder if the lavender
yearn for her scent

I wonder if the sunflowers
crave her little light
like the sun every night.

I wonder if the roses
envy her beauty
that captivated me.

I can't forget.

Crimson Sunset
Mitch Prax Oct 6
We sat there in silence,
side by side,
hand in hand,
letting the crimson sunset
pour out its last waves of light.
Let it cleanse us of our
misery and hardship.
Tonight is about us, dear,
nothing else is real-
let time stand still.

Final Chapter
