-Anything said by Mr. T
- Ill be in my bunk
- Im so clever that half the time I don't even understand what I'm saying

I will curl up on the bed
a tiny spec
on an ocean of quilt
hold my knees
my page is still blank
except for some eraser bits
and I feel a pain
like dull paperclips
digging into my skin
you have nothing to say to me
and there is nothing I can do anymore
to try and fix it
and I'm hungry
and I just need to rest
but you won't let me
I won't let myself
for you
I want to climb a tree
and leap like a flying squirrel
but I know I would just hit the ground
no one would catch me
and I can not catch myself anymore
and now my tears are running into my hair
in my ocean bed
and there's still no one left to catch me if I fall

"Don't punish yourself," she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness too. That was writing."
--Markus Zusak, "The Book Thief"

This reminds me a lot of one of my friends. Keep up the good work! Never stop writing.
