Favorite Quote:
I never sleep, 'cause sleep is the cousin of death

I did not know what love was ‘til you came;
I had not really wanted it before.
I rejected love as some foolish game;
I would not fall for it, and this I swore.
But you softened my heart, a heart of stone;
You brought me back to life, and back to peace.
You infused fire into my flesh and bones;
And turned my mind to love which never ceased.
And seasons passed and my heart turned to bliss;
But little did I know what you would do.
You soon left and betrayed me with a kiss;
My heart you pierced with iron through and through.
How blind was I to think that this would last;
I once knew love, but now my heart has passed.

The author's comments:
If you were wondering, the title, "Ms. Judas", as well as the 11th line of this poem, both allude to the Bible story where Judas betrays Jesus with a kiss.
