Favorite Quote:
"According to some, heroic deaths are admirable things. (Generally those who don't have to do it. Politicians and writers spring to mind.) I've never been convinced by this argument, mainly because, no matter how cool, stylish, composed, unflappable, manly, or defiant you are, at the end of the day you're also dead. Which is a little too permanent for my liking." — Jonathan Stroud (Ptolemy's Gate)


I must find the question
In a puddle of myself
As I slip like a fool in the mud
The dark surrounds me in the absence of the melon moon
No trust in my veins
The ricochet of my ‘strength’
I long for the dizzy thrill of life
But I am broken.
I could find the answer
To the troubles that I face
If I only remembered the question
