Favorite Quote:
Music screams the words we're all to afraid to speak.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.


Forever, what is the essence of this word

forever not a soaring plane or flying bird.

Neither the darkness of the moon nor the light of day

can explain this word in the simplest of ways.

It's really a warp of time

a broken poem without rhyme.

A silence in an overpowering crowd

a muted soul never becoming loud.

Viewing the cup as half empty

thriving on neglect, the bare feeling plenty.

A mask over a fading perfect soul

that's the devils ultimate goal.
It shadows you keeping you from the sun

it keeps you hidden in the dark all night long.

A river flows from the tears caused by forever

this word is plotted by those cruelly clever.

It's just an excuse for saying a forever farewell

Overall this sacred word forever is just a lie, if the truth I must tell.

I always wished I could write freely like Olivia seems to be able to do. I would be very interested in following this young lady's writing career.

There is a depth of understanding here that is reflected from within. She is quite a few years ahead of her time by many people's understanding. She reflects this understanding in her poetry very well. She has a good command of English language and its syntax. Very good, very good indeed. Kudos.
