Favorite Quote:
"I didn’t want any flowers, I only wanted
To lie with my hands turned up and be utterly empty.
How free it is, you have no idea how free——"

-Sylvia Plath


I found you in my cigarette box,

I don’t know why you were there.

I watched you blaze, persuaded glory

I’d let you burn my hair.

I used to smoke a you a day.

Feel your used air renewing me

I sucked you up inside myself

What wilt thou that I should do unto thee?

I let you paint my lungs,

so you might not disappear.

Darling,

Why wouldn’t you stay?

(I don’t think you knew you were here)
