Favorite Quote:
The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was.

Lovers don't finally meet somewhere,
they're in each other all along.
~Rumi


You tied me up
Put these chains on me.
It took all that I had,
But now I'm finally free.

Now I'm vulnerable.
Sore and weak.
I need help.
This pain is unique.

But don't think for a moment
That you can get me once more.
My body may be weakened
But my soul's stronger than before.
