Favorite Quote:
-There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy. (Shakespeare, Hamlet)


It is music to my hungry ears,
over yonder, by and near,
as I begin to sink below,
my pretty tune begins to slow.

Water, water, everywhere,
nor any drop to drink,
as the ocean pulls me there,
as I cease to think.

Heavy wet, all pressing in,
pretty, yet still dark as sin.
A smile's still on her pale, clean face,
as God plays her last Ace.


The author's comments:
I packed this FULL of symbolism; think like an english teacher as you read it. Inspired by the wave that (literally) hit me while on vacation while I was thinking about a beautifully written though very morbid poem called Rime of the Ancient Mariner. If you've taken through eleventh grade english, you've probably heard of it.
