I blame the moon for my mistakes…..

-Anshudha Garimella There’s mysteries in the sky But I don’t believe that the lines on our hands, show us to the galaxies perched up high You and I, we do have a cosmic map in our minds That entwines around our nerves In the form of our thoughts They shoot out of our consciousness andContinue reading “I blame the moon for my mistakes…..”
