Favorite Quote:
The whole world, myself included, seem to have one thing in common; we're just a crowd of people who don't really fit in anywhere attempting to convince one another that we do. -Andrew McMahon


We drew maps on our arms and our hands
With thick lines that could not be erased.
I held an old, broken compass in my palm,
But it led us backward instead of ahead.

Salty tears coated your eyelids
With a layer I could not taste.
I would have held them within myself,
But they escaped down your cheeks.

Your eyes reminded me of angels
As you saw what I could not find.
I’ll never forget your beautiful eyes
Or the way you saw the depths of my mind.
