Favorite Quote:
"I have promises to keep/And miles to go before I sleep" Robert Frost

I wrote a secret
And ripped it
Into smaller and softer
Pieces of paper

The wind took them
With my hand
And I smiled, because
Someone loved me

But it rained
And waterlogged secrets
Fell out of the sky
Like white ashes

Coating the world
In shreds of lies
And lost hopes
And waste

And I stood
Heavier from the storm
Dripping disappointment
From empty hands
