Favorite Quote:
Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.
-Stephen King


Those little children!
They hold it well,
but they haven't gone
nearly as far as we.
They don't depend 
on this stuff,
this bliss
quite as fully as me.

They never gulp
their sorrows down.
They only sip lightly.
And they float along 
a merry river 
while giggling brightly.

And here I am.
Drowning in an ocean.
An ocean filled with
sharks and toxic chemicals.
And I just can't seem 
to keep my head,
my head 
above the water.
