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.


Should I or should I not?
This battle is so much more
than I can take...
Each passing day I just
think about love and life,
and why? Why do I do this?
Why must I dream of
things that shall never come true?
Wishing for smiles and
to feel his kiss upon
my lips, and why? Why must
I wish for his kiss?
Why not anyone else?
Why not anything else?
Questions that seem so simple
are so very difficult
to answer, and why?
