"We are born with two incurable diseases -- life, from which we die; and hope, which says maybe death isn’t the end."
- Andrew Greeley


Saved by a fingertip
holding on
it could never be wrong
to trust you.
Watch me sleep
headphones, face-smush
legs curled, two-handed sleeping face palm.
Silent guardian
playing
Pearl Jam
reading
Camus
“… break his nose
if he comes any closer …”
Might have been
nothing to you,
but it carefully
flipped my world.

At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

A poem is never finished, only abandoned.

Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.

Wow. This is absolutely amazing. I love it. Maybe you could check out some of my stuff, comment and rate?

I am like a star burst. A juicy contradiction. I'm hard to figure out, but when you get to my center, your suprised! It's not what you thought it would be, huh.

I love the mood this poem gives.

Please comment and rate my new poem "Safe On A Cloud"!! I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

"My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all."

Comment on mine, too, please? My poem is 'Change' ... thanks if you do.

Yes, but I mean surrealistic in a good way. It reminded me of a surrealistic writing class I took this summer that I really enjoyed.
