Favorite Quote:
"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter won't mind."


Petticoat skirttails and Chantilly lace

with a wizened black bow pinning hair from her face;

if ever I'd find a way out of this place,

I'd send her instead to save the disgrace.

An asylum for those far more tainted,

we'll choose to look past the black nails that she's painted

and pretend that our hurricane queen

is still more beautiful, gentle,

and much less obscene.

Something I wrote when I was on a writing binge at 4 am c: I normally don't rhyme but hey, it worked.
