Favorite Quote:
"Everyone says love hurts, but that's not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love. But in reality, love is the only thing in this world that covers up all the pain and makes someone feel wonderful again." - unknown

Wind burns your cheeks
And whips your hair;
You trip and fall
But you don't care.

No matter how
Fast you may go,
Can't get away -
I've told you so.

What you run from
Is not the norm -
Not a person,
But another form.

You close your eyes -
Try not to see
The memory
From which you flee.

This mental chase.
Your path's a circle,
But still you race.

The only way
To fix your plight
Is not to run,
But stand and fight.

So turn around -
It's time to duel.
"Come out alive" -
The only rule.

That memory -
It will take time -
To try and block
It from your mind.

But even then
Gone it won't be...
Lasts forever,
That memory.
