Favorite Quote:
In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."
-- John Green


Maybe if you hold me close
We can forget why we’re here
Maybe if you kiss me now
We’ll push out all this fear
And maybe if we ignore this long enough
It’ll all just go away
The maybes are so impossible
But maybe for now I can stay
But darling, I think I have to leave
I’m learning how to fly
I’m done with staying on the ground
When I know secrets of the sky
The voices whisper to me, they call my name
They beg me not to stay
Maybe just ignoring this
Won’t help us anyway.

Pretty weak, but had a little random bout of inspiration.
