"You know you’re a writer if your friend tells you a heartbreaking story and your first reaction is – wow, that would make an incredible plot for a novel. You know you’re a smart writer if you manage to keep that reaction to yourself."


I'll close my eyes
and I'll push you away
praying your face
will be lost in the fray

You're just what I want
but you're not what I need
while my heart's saying yes
my head starts to impead

You know only my name
but it just doesn't fit
when there's so much of you
that I'll have to forget
