Favorite Quote:
"Now, the world can be an unfair place at times
But your lows will have their complement of highs
And if anyone should cheat you, take advantage of, or beat you
Raise your head and wear your wounds with pride."
-Yeasayer

"Me? I can change during the course of a day. When I wake I'm one person, when I go to sleep I know for certain I'm somebody else. I don't know who I am most of the time. It's like you got yesterday, today and tomorrow all in the same room. There's no telling what can happen."
-Bob Dylan


With winter on its way out
You fly into the arms of a broken-boned narcissist.
You open your mind to intrusive little thoughts
Each armed with a rifle, and a microphone

It was his hands that you had tied
During the impromptu war between the worlds
And his cough had been so loud that you couldn’t hear-
Excuse me- You couldn’t hear real life.

Sucking in your last breaths before you sink
Learning to slow your heartbeat, ’til you were seeing spots
You tried to reach the land, but got pulled under
By the wave you had welcomed with open arms.

Now you reach up, and shape the clouds like clay
And stand by the water, throwing in arms and legs.
Severed limbs of the severed ties that you were
Too young to keep, too lazy to nourish, too cold

To remember.

But solid ice will melt,
eventually.

Exposed, and unfrozen,

Then where will you be?

When spring comes around, my mind is always filled with words.
