Favorite Quote:
The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion to his (or her) commitment to excellence, regardless of his (or her) chosen field of endeavor.

As if I'd forgotten how to write.
Spinning 'round this endless urn
of love and hate and clouds.

I just want to go back to the way it is.
This is our time, our might, our change.

For sooth the savage soul

and the complacent mind.

O-Negative, ya know?
Skull kid, lost in the woods without a face.
I have no face, I have no nose.
Sam I am, find my nose.

Nevermind I found it.
Don't let these brilliant moments pass you--

Marry me, Don't marry me

Dust on the fan blade, chilling with its dust buddies.
Capture time with a photograph of 1000 words.
What is the true measure of a man?

Why are floors so great?
So supportive like great rafts in an ocean, a tatami mat.
Whales in the bay, Pirate's Bay, staring at nothing.
Mind your own god damn business, stupid whales.

...I'm sorry whales, I didn't mean that.

Spider script, scrawly script, jabbing and swirling over paper, lit by candelight.
Haha how poetic right?
Do you know what happened to the dream catcher that wanted a dream of its own?
...It died. That's right. Died.
Pressed by the burden of memories not mine own.
That's depressing.

...I'm so lost...

I was having a psycho night, feeling stressed about impending college decisions and other senior items of worry. This sort of sprung out.

Original, unique, and very interesting.  It's a poem that you want to read over and over for different interpretations.  Truly enjoyed it.  Talented author!
