Favorite Quote:
"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
-Elizabeth Kubler Ross


dust
like spiderwebs
crawling beneath my bones

my heart
whispers
painfully
"I do not know,
I do not know"

red eyes
my eyes
piercing through
your skin in the
dull light

your eyes
dark lies
I do not know,
I do not know.

drain
the blood
from my fingertips

such a beautiful
pain
to hold you
like this

love
is the nightmare
that clutches my throat
every night

every breath I waste
for you
in a kiss,
but why?

I do not know,
I do not know.


The author's comments:
Sometimes love is tragic and sometimes the person you thought you loved is like the grim reaper, stealing bits and pieces of your soul until you are left with nothing.
