Favorite Quote:
Home is a place in your heart that you only remember when you’re lost- anonymous

And so I clasp my 

Rose stained fingers

And pray to gods I don’t believe in

An aching under the flesh

An unfamiliar numbness

The taste on my tongue is of



The dying thoughts of mayflies 

I hope for the faith of the fallen

Instead of this nagging emptiness 

My own hands can’t control my dreams

But at least

In dreams

I am whole

Even when your hands are shaking, remember summer’s warmth
