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


I have a key
I hold it in my palm
and watch the stars wake up
as the world goes down
I can’t see the moon
without my key
but the butterflies and headlights
bathe in the light of the moon every night
without my key I can
only see the red rays and
shadows of morning
I stare at my key
with heavy eyes in the
flickering light of the
cyclops
a single bright eye in a
midnight beast
but my key is white and
my key is round
