Favorite Quote:
Be the change that you want to see in the world.
-Mohandas Gandhi

Days go by,
without any words.

Months go by,
as my throat still burns.

Missing you as much as I do,
I let you slip through my fingers.

Achy, bloody pain in my throat
I try to stop my words from scuttling away
from my tongue.

Close enough to touch,
far enough to yell
not close enough to hear,
my own personal hell.

I wrote this a while back, I still like it. Although it's about a boy, I don't mind it.
