LGLAR (Long Gone Like A Rifle)

I get these visions of you and me
Sunset, silhouettes and shadows
long red gown
flapping in the night breeze

there's you heading uphill
against the stinging chill
all for a dollar
and maybe the thrill of it

recurring visions hit me

they're long gone

Long enough to trick the mind
Long enough for my eye to see
nothing but a glimpse
of nothing

sheenamc1: Great series. Couldn’t put the books down. Had to keep reading. Occasional spelling error only negative.

Flone: I really like the characters but it was a typical plot. For me, i want a story that will flow my mind, a story needs a critical thinking. To think about what happens next.
