Favorite Quote:
"Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space "between the notes and curl my back to loneliness." ~Maya Angelou, Gather Together in My Name

A stress invades me,
Encumbering me,
Enveloping me.
I cannot move
Or make a sound.
I have to prove
That I am strong.
That I am willing to ground.

But I must shift.
To the right.
(Or may be the left?)
Which way can I go
To relieve this feeling
Of uncertainty
Of loneliness.

My constant is fluctuating.
I cannot find balance.
Happiness is gone
Hope is soluble
Love seems unbearable.

What is my constant?
Will anyone bond with me?
How will I ever find equilibrium.
