Favorite Quote:
"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks


So this is how it ends?

Broken backs and hallowed smiles.

I never believed this could happen, 

Not after all of my trials. 

 

"Coddle my weakness,

Pitiless heart,

Rip me to pieces, 

Tear me apart."

 

Like a vow in July,

I good as sang out that script. 

I ruined my life,

My freedom, my happiness, was stripped. 

 

You pulled me by threads 

And expected a show,

But all you received

Was a hard-fisted blow. 

 

I couldn't be yours, 

Depression, mi amore,

Even then when I stood,

I learned how to soar.
