Favorite Quote:
"A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world. "
-Oscar Wilde

The heart is a booming chime,
Each word just ticking of time,
Pale fingers lose their hold,
And the sun sets with fading gold

Darkness comes in a tangled vine,
Slowly erasing my every line,
Music is but a distant sound,
When being lowered into the ground.

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this poem while analyzing a quote by Tagore in my English class. The poem reflects just how much my writing style has changed and improved over the years. There can be may interpretations of the poem, though my own reasoning is that it is about life and how delicate it can be. Life relies on time, and it can end so quickly, which is why it should be cherished.
