Favorite Quote:
"Yet ah! why should they know their fate? 
Since sorrow never comes too late, 
And happiness too swiftly flies. 
Thought would destroy their paradise. 
No more; where ignorance is bliss, 
'Tis folly to be wise." - Thomas Gray, exerpt from 'An Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard'

life is such a hateful thing
as death surrounds our honeymoon
and peaceful smiles will fade away
as we scream in laughter
at these new days

because quiet is so cacophonous
and my mind is so obnoxious
these new ideas are so cliched
in this new moon
of long passed grace

loathing in the temples heart
forgotten things are works of art
in shadows made by pixies tears
we think in awe
about sinking fears

in shattered times we shout defeat
of stinging lies and haunting beats
kiss in pain of things not shared
imagine if
your family cared
