Favorite Quote:
"Poetry surrounds us everywhere, but putting it on paper is, alas, not so easy as looking at it." -Vincent Van Gogh


I have stolen
the stars
that were in
your old winter sky

and which
you were probably
going
to light the lightless with

Forgive me
they were lonely
so beautiful
and so cold.

*Inspired by William Carlos Williams' "This is Just to Say". I do not own the original idea; based off of his poem.*
