Favorite Quote:
"The World is but a canvas to our imaginations."-Henry David Thoreau

I lost my mind at sunrise
when you broke the shore.
And when you sailed the sinking coast,
I think my stomach tore;
bone marrow shattered against insects,
my inner desires scurried up lanes,
my instincts carried me to the sand
to sketch out your remains.
And then a wave hit my side,
(high-tide, barely past four),
to wash away my forlorn saint
my bitter, faint amor.

The author's comments:
This poem refers to some of the feelings I've had for several of my friends. Often times I have held someone in high regards and wondered if I was nearly as important to them as they were to me.
