Favorite Quote:
"First you jump off the cliff and you build wings on the way down." - Ray Bradbury


I cannot see
I comprehend
I cannot touch
I feel

There is no leeway
in this world
A spiral of information
constant, forever

I cannot taste
I enjoy
I cannot smell
I notice

And all of it's
here, I am your key
a turning wheel
a secret code
kept locked up
I do not leave

I cannot hear
The music is there
It will simply be
I've never left
I'm not set free


The author's comments:
People rely on their senses, without really getting the actual feel of the information their body takes in. I see purple, I hear the knock at the door. They do not think any farther.
