Favorite Quote:
“I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically... I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me.... I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”-Anais Nin

"I wish I had a mango tree
In my back yard"
I wish we could talk simply
Without being barred
I wish I had enough strength
To tell you how I feel
I wish I could swallow pride
To make this real
I'm deceiving
You: wide eyed and
You don't deserve me
I want to let you be
But I can't stand apart from you
I can't find the words that are true
Pilling my pieces in the corner
The things into the mirror I murmur
Leave me in my shambles
Shake off your tears and trembles
Take up spine
And save yourself
Cut the roots of strangling vine
