Favorite Quote:
"We look not at the things which are seen, but the things which are not seen. For the things that are seen are temporal, but the things that are not seen are eternal."


Slide through my fingertips
Like the dead
Thoughts
That slide through my mind
Withered
And loosing color
For I never took them out
To water
Or for sunshine
But I dried them out
So the water
Came too late
From my eyes
And the salt
Stung the last bit
Of life
Out
And my daisy
Turned
Grey
