-By The Viking Poet & Jayce Hall-
"Two friends who realized their chosen forms of expression could create a sort
of new nostalgia. The pieces in this book were not planned or edited in the
typical sense. I would write a piece in the moment, in one sitting. No adding to,
clarifying, and if anything, editing was removing ranting, spelling errors, and making things shorter. Every one of the illustrations you see is Jayce’s
internal reaction to that piece."- The Viking Poet
Soil & Stone
We are so afraid of real rejection
So we settle for fake approval.
Likes and follows
counterfeit success that feels so much safer
than authentic failure...
Fate was a fickle lover to me
She never truly belonged to me
Nor I to her
Death was a tempting mistress
One that offered such peace
From the enigma of fate’s always changing promises
But I feared the commitment she asked of me...
Lie to me
Let me live in this fantasy
Where queens love kings
And dragons can be tamed
Lie to me
Because these webs you spin ensnare me...
