Favorite Quote:
“Courage is not a man with a gun in his hand. It's knowing you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.” - As spoken by Atticus Finch, Harper Lee.

Cough syrup drips
Down my face.
I am not sick.
I just like the flavor
That blankets my tongue
And sticks it to
My mouth’s floor.
I like how it makes
My eyelids droop
In a purple haze
Worthy of Hendrix.
It lets me shut
Everything out.
It turns my face to
A stoic paper mache
Mold of the sleepy
Smile it gives me.
The best part is
That no one else
Can see it.
