Favorite Quote:
-There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy. (Shakespeare, Hamlet)

Red with rust,
covered in dust,
that lonely heart.
'Til death did they part.
The end was here,
as Death wandered near.
Stumbled uncertainty,
loved, not so perfectly.
Parted, they are now, but not forever.
Started, love again, now more than ever.

The author's comments:
I wrote this in the middle of English for no reason in particular. Well, I guess since the book we were reading mentioned 'rust' and 'dust' and then the mother dies at the end probably didn't hurt. That moment spoke to me, because I have a very close relationship with my mother.
