Favorite Quote:
"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks


Bitter coffee becomes like candy
When we coat it with a facade of sugar.
It slides sweetly down our throats,
The poison burning all the way down,
Yet we are numbed with the anesthetic of lies and false hopes.

Sometimes I feel like I’m addicted to the caffeine,
But I know so much better than that.
It’s the venom calling my name,
Begging to be let in,
Begging to bite me again.
