Favorite Quote:
No, I've never thought that I was gay. And that's not something you think. It's something you know.
-Robert Plant (who, for the music illiterate, was the lead singer of Led Zeppelin)

Ever since you left me,
I bleed in mirrors that bleed
The blue of your eyes.
I constantly crush my own reflection
And insert my own concoction into my veins.
Yet if the jagged memory of you
Creates the occasional gash, as it has a habit of doing,
The oceans in your eyes are the only thing that engulfs me.
And I am suddenly nowhere to be found.

The author's comments:
I wrote this not too long after a girlfriend left me. I thought I'd never get over her. But about the time I wrote this...I realized I had.
