Favorite Quote:
"Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

What makes you so great, so powerful?
Is it because you twist reason into truth?
Hold power to create in ones mind?
Or solely because you say what I can't?

Maybe its your desire that I love.
Your simplicity.
Your ability to construct beauty from ones torment.
From ones passion.

You take something as plain as a word,
and create a masterpiece.
A masterpiece of emotion, and structure,
left for me, the reader, to decipher.

You are a vision left to interpret.
A secret yet to be revealed.
Even though you need no meaning,
have no definition.

And in all honestly I’ve missed you.
The exhilaration you bring.
Knowing that I am in control,
and no matter how inessential my thoughts may be,
you listen.

You are my friend, my best friend.
My alter ego to say the least.
The one addiction I will never depart from.
Simply because you make me who I am.
