Favorite Quote:
“The moment you think you understand a great work of art, it's dead for you.”
~Oscar Wilde
I must lie down where all the ladders start
In the foul rag and bone shop of the heart.
~William Butler Yeats

Why did you leave me alone?
If the weather is cold
The conversations are frigid

Why did you leave me alone?
Even these tormenting thoughts
Reached their crescendo long ago

Why did you leave me alone?
Now all that’s left is the steel-blue ink
Spilling out my naïve tears

Why did you leave me alone?
Because you’ll forget me, I know
But forever can’t erase you from this broken heart.
