"The greatest ironies of life: having the right person at the wrong time, having the wrong person when the time is right, and finding out that you love someone after that person walks out of your sight ...." -V. Para


Crunching leaves lethargically
And blasting music in hopes
Of drowning out the quiet
I roam this place of stillness

Everything I see in this busy space
Is painted charily with ivy
Wasting away in decaying grass
With foliage that hums in pity

I long to stop coming here
Despite the overwhelming beauty
But for the very first time
I can see why they call this peaceful
