Favorite Quote:
"Ye hae your MEG, your dearest part,
And I my darling JEAN!
It warms me, it charms me,
To mention but her name:
It heats me, it beets me,
and sets me a' on flame!" Epistle to Davie, A Brother Poet by Robert Burns


The day runs down like a tired clock
And hour by hour I wait
Each second ticks another tock
My mind is running; I'll soon be late.

Away from the world,
Away from it all.
Towards the sky-like pearls
I want to be free; let everything fall.

Chimes sing me back
And everything is grey
I see now what I lack
So I wait again to lay.

My dreams drive me insane
They don't bend to my will
My dreams are inane
I will soon fall ill.
