Favorite Quote:
It always rains harder on the people who deserve the sun.

What If there was not such a thing as beauty-
being large or thin and frail,
being cruel or dying for love- given away by a harsh betrayal

Sitting broken hearted in a boat, which the lady of shallot rode- into death and endless torture and pain away from the castle walls- she did not mary the prince of her dreams- nor did he consider her fate
away from her dark dreams and escape through the inprisoning castle gate

love is a cruel thing
condemner of tortured souls
it poisons the innocent creating illusions of eternal happiness,
and in the heart burns deep holes.

Romeo oh romeo- but he did never come.
the romantic lancelot of camelot- hadn’t he a firey tongue?

Peaceful sleep and an endless woven tale
a song or two won’t go amiss but your lies cover you - a veil

What can I ask of a shattered- splintered dream
-many centuries of repatitious droning on the subject of love
why not uncover the true heroes of the glorified word
Bitterness and hatred
seperating the sane from the clones filled with the irrevecobal and unindurable pain
a hazy path misleading those: ‘blind in love’
but never have i seen continuos peace
nor the reassuring dove.

It reminds me how love is not always a happy memory or emotion.
