Favorite Quote:
"Through playful lips made of yarn, that fragile Capricorn unraveled words like moths upon old scarves." Panic! At The Disco

I went down to

a place in the mountains

where a river ran like bricks.

A deer sat still as a rock,

and I danced along the cliffs.


I went down to

a place in the hills

where the trees grew tall as grass.

I found myself in a school

with teachers made of class.


I went up to

a place by the sea

where the waves crashed like air.

My hands were numb as needles

as my fingers danced in your hair.

This poem was written with a sort of humor within the contradictions in each stanza.
