Favorite Quote:
"Be not simply good-be good for something" -Henry Thoreau


I whisper softly
things I want to say.
Lend your ears,
hear the way
they sound out your name....

Taste the sound around the
burns
and the scars.
Some words are sharp
for tongues sweet like yours.

Speak slowly
to be heard over
the blood
pouring from your chest
through your veins
to your ears
that listen close
to my whisperings.
