Favorite Quote:
"It doesn't matter where you go, as long as you dance your way there."

Oh my, oh dear! What do we fear?
A quaint, little nursery rhyme rings in your ear.
It sings of ash and fire and rain, as it sings you to sleep once again.
The insanity, it drowns and speaks of stories untold.
As it speaks of a life you’ll never hold, the same small questions sing you to sleep as the rhyme takes place as chorus to keep beat.
Who are you?
What do you want?
Why didn’t I save you?
Didn’t I love you so much?

The author's comments:
I was immensely inspired by the movie Shutter Island. The tragicness of the story had me feeling broken, lost, and as insane as the main character. I started writing out my feelings and they came out a little something like this.
