Favorite Quote:
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'


Not a fun summer or a relaxing fall
I give you a cold winter
It is a shallow dream
It promises nothing
Like the idea of no tomorrow
Here
It will stop your heart
Like a sharp blade
It will make you cry out in pain
I am trying to be blunt
Not a warm spring or a soothing rain
I give you a cold winter
Its touch will freeze
As we are
For as long as we are
Take it
Its my soul in the open
If you like
Darkness
Its scent will cling to your shadow
Cling to the night.
