Favorite Quote:
"Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds ways to kneel and kiss the ground." - Rumi

And so it goes, will this be the last?
I've tried so long to bury my past
But neither could I beguile the shame
Nor rid my heart of the pain

How do I contend with desire
While looking through a mask, condemned a liar?
Despite the years, I do not know
And so it goes, and so it goes

Should I not ever learn
And quench my heart's endless yearn?
I first must seek out the light
Though consumed by eternal night

And so it goes, and so it goes...
