Favorite Quote:
"As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others' - Audrey Hepburn


Heavenly bodies rise up
Mist settles in
She sits alone,
Atropos looks up from shiny metal
Black rose petals fall around her
As her teeth scrape
She looks at her sisters,
Waiting for the last petal
Broken clocks surround her
Basking in fluorescent light
The last petal touches the ground
Metal flashes in moments
Her breath is cut short,
Rose leaves her cheeks
Atropos smiles as her hand drops
