Examples of Jacob’s work:
The path to happiness, one touched by grief.
An endless road to understanding.
Life through the eyes of a blooming flower,
ablaze in changeless days.
Time and time again we wonder, only to escape our sorrow.
Flawed, but not broken
Life brings her joy through selfless action, life mourns her through her eyes neglect.
A time when everything has purpose, a time when everything connects, In the arms of pain she slumbers, in the arms of lust she aches.
Patience is the only answer, patience is the time it takes. Eager are her thoughts kept silent, eager are her gentle arms. Locked away her heart stays dormant, locked away her heart from harm.
Life of sleepless men
And as I awake from my slumber, dreams become me, my thoughts of reason.
Reality becomes my voice, shouting cry’s turned to echoed whispers, can you hear them? am I the only one to bare this burden?
I expect only I, but I embrace it lightly, even when my thoughts weigh heavily.
