Favorite Quote:
“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey

I also like this quote by Gnarls Barkley:
"You are the best. You are the worst. You are average. Your love is a part of you. You try to give it away because you cannot bear its radiance, but you cannot separate it from yourself. To understand your fellow humans, you must understand why you give them your love. You must realize that hate is but a crime-ridden subdivision of love. You must reclaim what you never lost. You must take leave of your sanity, and yet be fully responsible for your actions." -Gnarls Barkley, in a letter to the legendary rock critic Lester Bangs

Kiss me goodbye my love for soon it will be dawn
And Black veils will hide my shame
The Blackbird is lucky for he can fly from his grief
Fly for me Blackbird, Cry for me Blackbird for soon it will be dawn.

The author's comments:
I wrote this in class last week while everyone else was finishing the poems. Sonnets, sonnets suck and anyway ripping of some dead guy's art by switching words around isn't really my thing. I've been listening to a lot of music about Songbirds so that's were the blackbird thing came from.
That's it I guess, oh and be nice I'm new. :)
