Favorite Quote:
Life is an adventure in itself.

A heart once broken
is easily mended
with tape and twine and glue.
But a heart unbroken
is often offended
for every wound feels fresh and new.
A tongue that rolls off
insults like raindrops
remains just so in a bind.
But one that tolls off
flatteries like pain stops
when there is something else to find.
For the lips untouched
and the walls unscaled
are always those most desired.
But to do such
leaves a heart impaled
and a love unacquired.

The author's comments:
you hear a lot of poems about love, and unrequited love and just about any other sort of love you can think of so I decided to write a poem about nonexistant love.
