Favorite Quote:
Words slide off the lead,
creating permanent marks;
writer's secret code.
~Lindsey O'Connell

In the midst of gentle breezes
and mild, golden sunlight
my heart is freezing.
The cold breath of lonliness and solitude
chilling my very soul.

So I sit, and wait
for Autumn to thaw me,
and Winter to warm me,
before Spring and Summer subdue me once more.

The author's comments:
Is it just me, or does it seem like you dont see your friends as often in the Summer as you do during the school year? Well, that's just what this poem's about--not being able to see your friends as much, and how hard and lonely Summer sometimes feels. Enjoy!
