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."

A piano student

always ambling for a challenge

to perfect,

I found you

scribbled on the back

of a letter in the trash;

Your notes were dark,

sharp, a sight to behold

for one such as I.

I propped you up

on my oak piano,

ran my fingers across the

delicate ivory,

and began to play.

How I drove myself wild!

trying to perfect your harmonies,

blistering my fingers,

and clouding the hours

with the foggy image of you.

If only I'd known then

that you were never,

truly, meant

to be played.

Maybe I wouldn't have made you so beautiful.
