Favorite Quote:
“Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. ”

You froze me in place the first time I saw you,
My feelings are deep and my soul full of many passions.
Why do I feel so strangely after one glance? All those stories, about love at first sight. Maybe my mom was right.
Your smile was warm and reached from ear to ear.
Your laugh is contagious and warms every corner of my soul.
Why do I feel so connected after one glance?
I try and shake it but you already have a hold on my heart.
Your voice as resonant as a bass guitar and is felt throughout my heart.
It is magical and soothing transporting me to a place I have never been.
I try to hear the thoughts of my head but my heart whispers back, it is okay to love.
Your walk both sturdy and fast, it reflects your strength.
The vibrations of your surrounding energy engulf me.
I can see and feel the essence of who you are.
I want more but I am afraid, I know everything will be alright because I already love you.
Time has passed and we have had so many adventures.
What happened to us? We say we are in different places in our lives.
We try and move but we can’t. We are connected.
I hear it in your resonant voice and the way you touch me.
You are my true soul mate.
The first time I saw you I knew it was true.
But yet we are still in limbo, afraid of what we feel,
to stubborn to know what we really have.
Everything you are has already changed the way I feel about my life.
I want to let go of myself once again, I want to feel and know you again,
I want you because I am lost in a place where I feel nothing without you.
My dreams of you and I are all I have left.
I love you.
