“Sure, I can talk like you, but I choose not to, It's like an art, you know? Picasso had to prove to the world he could paint the right way, before he goes putting both eyes on the side of a face... See if you paint wrong because that's the best you can do, you just a chump. But you do it because you want to? Then you're an artist...You can take that to the grave and dig it up when you need it.”
― Neal Shusterman, Unwind


When I miss you
The stars don’t shine
And the birds are encaged in shrapnel.

When I miss you
Every little note is flat,
Every word is meaningless and floating.

When I miss you
I can’t breathe, can’t speak,
Can’t even move.

When I miss you
I am not me,
But somebody else,
Someone slow-witted and mild.

When I miss you
I am morbidly ill
I’m an addict in need of a fix
And all my plights are sentenced to failure.

You are the part of me that is soft,
Kind and passionate and splendiferous.
And when I miss you
I am blank
Lost
Lifeless
Alone.
