Favorite Quote:
"If you don't have any shadows, you're not standing in the light."
- Lady Gaga

She sets fire to the rain
As the crow flies
Chasing the nonexistent blessing
Of the waxing blue moon
Still wind blows
And frigid desert flowers
Bloom carrying long-lost memories
Of pink tulle and stardust
Led Zeppelin plays
As seas dry and
Clouds form and you
Run down the painted highway
Falling for something all so beautiful
A promise of something larger than ourselves
And so she calls for the father
Then spits away the bitterness
As they are left
Far too alone again

I wrote this piece when I was struggling through a difficult time in my life and when I really felt abandoned by God.
