At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

A poem is never finished, only abandoned.

Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.


Lips of silver.
Tongue of gold.
Tears of purple.
Heart so cold.
You lie.
With all your beauty,
you lie.
You say things
You do not mean.
You're the jester
who acts like the queen.
You lie.
Through all your make-up
still I see,
you're not what
you pretend to be.
Behind your mask
I see you cry.
No matter what you say,
you lie.

Chloe, I honestly think you will be a great poet later on in your life. I hope the whole world can hear this stuff. It's beatiful. You have an awesome talent. I can't do stuff like this. I hope i can meet you someday to talk to you in person... :D
