Favorite Quote:
An old man told his grandson, "There is a fight between two wolves inside of us. One is bad-- it is lust, pried, and lies. The other is good-- love, caring and humility." The boy thought for a moment and asked, "Which one wins?" "The one you feed."

You and I are
i. The silence between the lines
Of a story left untold
ii. The untuned heart string melody
Of a broken moving line
iii. The sweet perfume of fire
and lighter fluid on the wind
iv. The thin lips of the crow
Drawn into a taunting smile
v. The flicker dance of burnt out bulb
And its sweet and graceful stride
vi. My beginning
And my end

This is a very cool poem.  I like the feel and the flow of it.
