Favorite Quote:
"To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong." - Joseph Chilton Pearce

"I am done with you."
Words I scream as I throw my love to the floor.
Cracks and scratches
And blood and tears.
Hope seeps and faith flickers.
Through hateful slander and powerful buffeting,
My rage washes away, away like venom from my heart.
And I see my love on the ground, pieces of my love scattered.
Like bloody shards of glass.
I gather my love in my palms.
"Sorry" and I am.
But so faded, so broken.
I have to try. So I do.
I save my love.
And my love is mine again.
And I nurture my love again.
And I love my love again.

The author's comments:
I wrote this while overhearing an argument about giving up on your passion. I've thrown my stories away, and then immediately regretted it. If you love something so much, even if it starts to become impossible, you always find yourself loving it still. At least, that's how it is for me.
