Favorite Quote:
"And it's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most, not where you live, what you drive or the price tag on your clothes. There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind." - Zac Brown Band

In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight
The moon dances on the branches
underneath the midnight sky.

The streetlights flicker when I walk there on the road,
the streets are full of strangers and I’m alone,
and I walk until the morning.

The rain starts to fall and the pavement shines like silver,
there’s passion in the puddles,
the aroma lingers in the air.

Sometimes I close my eyes and I can feel the thunder rolling,
it echoes through the dungeons
of the castles in the clouds.

The lightning streaks through the sky and I feel it with my fingers,
the power surges through my soul
and it stays there for a while.

I used lyrics from Les Mis as inspiration for this poem.
