Favorite Quote:
"The heart is an artist that paints over what profoundly disturbs it, leaving on the canvas a less dark, less sharp version of the truth." - Dean Koontz

i want

to travel

to places unknown to my eyes,

where my brain is a map,

and i become lost in pavement.

i want

to live

in towns where my name is a mystery,

where i am so truly alone,

that i forget my name too.

i want

to know

people with story-filled paths,

those whose faces carry scars

of moments we long to forget.

i want

to see


in the smile of a man with no teeth,

in the strength of a broken woman,

in the cold loneliness surrounding a stranger.

i want

to experience

love, when it is nothing more than a fleeting fallacy

time, when it passes silently without distortion

life, when it is in its most vulnerable form.
