Favorite Quote:
Life is short. Break the rules. Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably. Love the true God. Never regret anything that made you smile.

No one to talk to
A crack in my foundation
My heart is split in two
He is dead now
Going through the motions of life
Nothing is important
My every action causing strife
He is dead now
The death of a boy so unfair
The older should not outlive the younger
A hole in my heart completely bare
He is dead now
His picture living on my shelf
I talk to him night and day
It is time I must remind myself
He is dead now

Inspired by The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. Attempted to capture some of Holden's emotions.
