Favorite Quote:
"When I have fears that I may cease to be..." - John Keats


This is my confession, for everyone to see.
Let me kneel here, and I will let you watch;
Pretending I am unaware of this populated presence.
I will speak into the screen, voice soft in
Embarrassment that I have hidden
For years and years and years.
This is my confession, for everyone to hear.
Let my voice echo against the pews:
I will let you listen, as my repentance
Pillows off the silence, into your ears.
And when I stand, every one will disperse
Like cockroaches, religious for a moment.

The author's comments:
This was inspired by the way people react to scandal: paying so much attention, but not really caring about the persons involved. Thank you.
