Favorite Quote:
"A day without laughter is a day wasted" -Charlie Chaplin


It’s a very dark night
With all the shutters closed
And all that can be heard
Is a howl in the distance

A small candle in the corner
Illuminates the room none
I’m left with my thoughts alone
In the dark and lonely night

The dark brings no comfort
A place where my tears can fall free
Where no one can see me defenseless
And I can cry myself to sleep

A whisper beckons from the shadows
A light flashes through the room
My heart yearns to run outside
And dance as the raindrops fall

But stuck I am in this room
With little light to see by
My vision fades to blurry
As the tears stain my page

When I wrote this our power was out, and all I wanted to do was write. So that's exactly what I did.
