Favorite Quote:
Poetry is the soundtrack to my life, the lyrics are my thoughts accompanied by the melody of my emotions.


anger, seething, chaining
flaming red
but why do I grip it with white knuckles
as if it's my steering wheel
but I just noticed it's crushing me
so my coping mechanism is
creating another problem
I'm scared of a happy life
mostly because I'm not sure it exists 'cuz
It's easier to live in the shadows than to
wait for a sun that never rises
