Favorite Quote:
When we are struck at without a reason, we should strike back very hard; I am sure we should- so hard as to teach the person who struck us never to do it again. -Charlotte Bronte

Love is a scoundrel, a phony, a witch
It leaves you so many pieces to stitch
UP, and later, in the subconscious mind
You wish you had never been so very kind
To that friend, that mother, that father, that man,
Who left you more pain than you can withstand
Sometimes I wonder, why do we try?
Why give up our life, only to die
Of a fractured heart, broken and bruised
Battered, beaten, once beautifully fused,
A pity- that betrayal should ravage the joints,
Compassion, these days, is now a moot point
I guess we try so we may obtain
A glorified mind, euphorically sane.
That witch called love, our weighted tote
Is the very same thing that keeps us afloat.

I wrote this in creative writing class, and modified it a couple of times the way I wanted.
