Favorite Quote:
“You write beautifully. The inside of your mind must be a terrible place.”


Your onerous words
Rise off the paper,
Aimed at my throat.

Each expectant syllable
Grows immortal eyes,
Continually watching in omniscience.

As forced motivation
Climbs up my throat,
So does the probability of failure.

Even though you’re gone,
These words aren’t just words,
But I can’t stop being human.
