Favorite Quote:
Laugh your heart out. Dance in the rain. Cherish the morning. Ignore the pain. Live, Laugh, Love. Forgive and Forget. Life's too short to be living with regrets.
Never interrupt someone doing what you said couldn't be done. Amelia Earhart


Why talk?

Why stuff the air

with meaningless words

leaving no room for the birds?

Why pour my heart out

only to receive indifferent shrugs

or worse,

false sympathies.

Why force my demented thoughts

on an unsuspecting public?

no.

I will keep them

and lock them up.

Hide them from the sun.

But,

if you try hard enough,

I just might give you the key.
