Favorite Quote:
"My candle burns at both ends, it will not last the night. But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends, it gives a lovely light."
~Edna St. Vincent Millay


Running, Spinning Falling- as time pushes on.
Grasping for something to hold- yet finding none.
The seconds slip by us as we do our dance.
Life comes and it goes while we remain entranced.
Free for a moment, dropping through space.
A dizzying spin before I take my place.
I often wonder- is this my fate?
But I cannot wonder long, before I suffocate.

This was a creative writing exercise for my English class. I chose to write about a small egg-timer.
