Favorite Quote:
\"Faith is universal. Our specific methods for understanding it are arbitrary. Some of us pray to Jesus, some us go to Mecca, some of us study subatomic particles. In the end we are all just searching for truth, that which is greater than ourselves....Science tells me God must exist. My mind tells me I will never understand God. And my heart tells me I am not meant to.\"-Vittoria Vetra, Angels and Demons

i wear the mask so well,
the secrets in my heart do lie.
oh but how hard is it to tell,
that I can also cry?
my words, my smile:
of happiness they seem;
but loneliness the while,
sad my soul does deem.
Nary had i ever felt,
the heart inside me halt
but than again, i'd never dealt
with such a solemn fault.
the lies, the truth, i do confuse;
i lie awake for hours to this due,
and yet i find no use
of thinking about you.
the heart and soul
do lead my mind,
said reason for this fall;
But the answers I have yet to find.
The cause for all the tears
The few that I did shed
“Iloveyou’s” in my ears
Oh how dry my heart has bled!

I hadn't had the desire to contemplate my feelings after months of a bad break up. I just let everything out in this poem.
