Favorite Quote:
"'At a certain part in your life. Probably when too much of it has gone by. You will open your eyes and see yourself for who you are. Especially for everything that made you so different from all the awful normals. And you will say to yourself, "But I am this person." And in that statement, that correction, there will be a kind of love.' - Phoebe In Wonderland

I am not strong.
I cannot lift or push or carry weight.
Yet I’ve one muscle where all my strength is placed.
I profusely pump blood to all but myself.
Free transfusion! Are you in need of help?
It hasn’t a cost, and there’s no line to sit.
All that I ask for is, conversational wit.

Tell me your sorrows and what I can bare,
Keep not a thing to me unawares,
Your baggage is mine.
Your burdens my pleasure.
Our eternal connection is my treasure.

Yes, I’ve a big heart.
However, with much responsibility, it falls apart.
Too many connected to siphon my soul.
What is left for me to own?
Sad and drained I sit on the mantle.
Small and wrecked,
No assistance lent to handle.
