Favorite Quote:
Dans chaque fil il y a un debut.


You tell me to scrape the acid from my tongue.
You tell me to let the beauty of the world saturate my paper, untainted and pure,
Like rain drops on a spring afternoon. Quenching the thirst of the innocence starved world.
You tell me to close my tired brown eyes and
Give way to but a moment in time,
That lies untouched by the filthy hands of my own anxious mind.
