Favorite Quote:
From this world-wearied flesh. Eyes, look your last!
Arms, take your last embrace! and, lips, O you
The doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss
A dateless bargain to engrossing death!
Come, bitter conduct, come, unsavoury guide!
Thou desperate pilot, now at once run on
The dashing rocks thy sea-sick weary bark!
Here's to my love!
O true apothecary!
Thy drugs are quick. Thus, with a kiss, I die.


- Romeo


the voices grow in

volume,intensity,speed,length

belonging to eyes which

glare,watch,gawk,spy

at the different one

alone,stranded,silent,scared

she knows they stare

listening,glancing,always somewhere

she is different now

taller,stronger,stranger,smarter

but still she is lost

stranded,stuck,forever wandering

she lives among strangers

when she is still one herself
