Favorite Quote:
I was never afraid of failure for I would sooner fail than not be among the greatest.

purple velvet
dark mahogany wood
whispered words hidden
beneath folds of linen
secrets carved along the sides
and Hades waits
As darkness creeps upon
the bed of death
skin pales, hands swallow
And then,
Good night
