Favorite Quote:
When you long with all your heart for someone to love you, a madness grows there that shakes all sense from the trees and the water and the earth. And nothing lives for you, except the long deep bitter want. And this is what everyone feels from birth to death.

I am shrinking
shriveling into myself.
The smaller I become,
the larger my flaws grow.
Away with the substance,
the Quality and Honor
and Truth.
Nothing remains but bones
sick and twisted and manipulating.
Sticking jagged through skin torn apart
by the Lies and the hurt and the fears.
A small shadow cast,
the last evidence of who I once was.
Of who I could have been.
Of who I’ll never be.
