“I would not regret putting a hole in your arrogant chest, only it would be deflected when it hit that piece of rock you call a heart.”
Laurie McBain, Devil's Desire

“Oft in the stilly night,
Ere Slumber's chain has bound me,
Fond memory brings the light
Of other days around me;
The smiles, the tears,
Of boyhood years,
The words of love then spoken;
The eyes that shown
Now dimmed and gone,
The cheerful hearts now broken.

(from When the Splendor Falls by Laurie McBain)”
