Favorite Quote:
"If death meant just leaving the stage long enough to change costume and come back as a new character....would you slow down? Or speed up?
-- Chuck Palanick


Can you believe that to be
is to not?
To laugh and to see
all forgot?
From the ink on my
fingers,
my life slowly withers.
As if of a flower besot.

It was once that
my mother was happy.
Twas once that my
father would smile.
But the story was
written,
by a fragile hand
bitten.
Making words and the like
to be vile.
