Favorite Quote:
In three words I can sum up everything I've learned in life: it goes on.
Robert Frost


Gentle friction, it sparks the flame
It grows into fire
Leaving ruins in its wake
It burns down walls
It melts the chains
While it ravages this city
We dance with flames
Relish the touch
The warmth from within
Euphoria so powerful
Blind to the singe
Entranced by the colors
Shades beyond comprehension
Distract from carnage
And perished foundation
Mayhem masked by beauty
This self inflicted disaster
When the fire subsides
The land scarred by ashes
The structure still stands
Craving the next assault
