Favorite Quote:
"I'm not suffering form insanity, I'm enjoying every minute of it!"


In the Quasi-dream state i fell
Down to mt own little pesonal hell
To a dirty city far away
The one we will live in together, someday

It's where my Doppleganger creeps
on those dark forbidden streets...

The clouds hung low,
the sky was dark as i searched for Noahs Ark


The author's comments:
My favorite author in the world is Oscar Wilde I got inspiration for this poem from a wonderful book called "Siddartha" by Herman Hesse definately a book to be read by every teenager and also from a song by my favorite band, "Dream of sleeping" called 'May all my delusions come true'and my good friend my muse of sorts who helped me to write my first
one-act about dopplegangers


I love useing sybolism and a dirty city is perfect to symbolize hell or the place you are when youve hit bottom which i know a bit about, dopplegangers are a good parallel for being afraid of yourself and your feelings and of course Noahs ark is salvation

this poem is partly about letting go of sadness or depression and finding salvation for yourself from it to be happy
