Imagination is more important than knowledge. ~ Albert Einstein
Smile, laugh, love. :)

Flat clouds laying like a force
Forbidding either one of us to touch
Reminding me there's no reason to
Reach up and try for the sky



Wired fences and leafless trees
Looking out on vast reaches of dead grass
Giving me endless reasons to want to die
Yet life doesn't want to push me away.


Twisted strips of paper, layered in writing
I no longer care to listen to
Words scrolled in a flawless hand
But with hate against my broken soul



At last, I have made my way to a sullen coffee shop
Full of memories no one but myself remembers
I sit, and look out the window. Where's my tree?
Gone... Like everything else in this world.

I am not sure how to explain this one... But I am sure we all feel this way once in awhile. As I did when I wrote this... On Valentine's Day. Happy Single's Day! :)
