Favorite Quote:
“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours.”
― Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

I saw myself in your eyes
But saw that you where dead.
We extended beyond rigid rocks
we formed while the river remained young,
refined in reluctant moments
swimmers beneath the sun’s simper
Smooth streams,
Life’s unfeasible prize.
We plunged,
A narrow deep crash into the abyss
sinking in reckless tides
crashing into dams,
Like an illness
Water descends in a constricted form,
then spreads;
A series of waterfalls.
