Favorite Quote:
"Nevermore" said the Raven.~ By Edgar Allen Poe

A forgotten tear
An innocent plea
A cry for help
A call of destiny
Fate's greedy hold
Tightening it's grip
Begging for mercy
A subtle slip
"Leave me not!"
Cried the young girl.
"It is love I have sought,
Found finally at last,
Though many times we have fought."
"Foolish girl!"
Taunted the young boy.
"I have decieved you with love!
But it was feign,
Like a deceased dove."
She chewed on her lip
Then fled from this place
Dressed in elegant,
Linen and lace.

The author's comments:
The story was inspired by how many teens feel about loosing someone they love by havng a bad breakup. This Poem was also inspired by the phrase "All dressed up and no where to go."
