Favorite Quote:
"I wish, as well as everybody else, to be perfectly happy; but like everybody else, it must be in my own way." -Jane Austen
"I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy one, I will indulge the other." -Mary Shelley

Traveling through the past

Flowers bloom

Nastolgia flies by

I'm thinking of you


The ice cream truck awaits

standing in line

You stood behind me

I'm thinking of that time


But what will I do

When memories fade

Stories sink

I'm thinking of that day


They say, "Have fun!"

Is it true?

Heart rate increasing

I'm thinking of you


I wait in the new summer sun

for you to say, "Goodbye"

Kids rushing out

You never arrived


A year has passed

Features in the forgotten sea

Will I find the shore?

Will you ever think of me?

Every line has a meaning and truth to it. Not all of it is hyperbolic or metaphorical; most of the lines are quite literal.
