Favorite Quote:
I have lived eighty years of life and know nothing for it, but to be resigned and tell myself that flies are born to be devoured by spiders and man by his sorrows--Voltaire

Watch eyes of your loved
Dim to the lifeless grey
As the sun descends
For the millionth time again

The ghosts will never
Ever catch up
But you always run
Because they feel so close

The moon rises for the millionth day
Time won't change it
But the sun's gaze
Leaves a reddish haze

Mortality is so bitter
Immortality is no better
But life is just a phase

Run, but know
The rear-view mirrors
Make objects appear closer
Than they actually are
