Favorite Quote:
"The mind was made to protect and guide, the heart was made to grant happiness."

Times of aloneness are all she knows.
Tears as abundant as the darkest day of autumn.
Her heart held down from a past that haunts.
Her friend, her support, her friend, her enemy.
What family remains?
The darkest hour, her time of need.
Knees raw from a prayer thought to be unanswered.
Betrayal a plague, a trap seemingly unavoidable.
Hope, the nearly last source of strength.
Syringes' cause leisure.
In her mind lingers death.
In her heart what remains?
Reassurence whispers from a mouth of her creation.
Knowing she may fall, Knowing she may fail.
Still she holds him close,
Only to wipe a sons tears.
