Favorite Quote:
“Truth is always stranger than fiction. We craft fiction to match our sense of how things ought to be, but truth cannot be crafted. Truth is, and truth has a way of astonishing us to our knees. Reminding us, that the universe does not exist to fulfill our expectations. Because we are imperfect beings who are self-blinded to the truth of the world’s stunning complexity, we shave reality to paper thin theories and ideologies that we can easily grasp – and we call them truths. But the truth of a sea in all it’s immensity cannot be embodied in one tidewashed pebble.”

To be without you;
the thought is
a piercing nail in my heart.
Your bright grey eyes are filled
with a heat I have become addicted to,
though I know I may burn up-
I'm lost in those fiery grey eyes.
I could never bear it-
to part from you,
my scarlet rose.
So let me hold you close,
Through sickness
and in health-
Till death do us part.
