"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them."
Henry David Thoreau

"I fell in love the way you fall asleep; slowly, and then all at once."
John Green

There are times when you just want to melt
With the passing scenery behind the window
And drive for eternity.
Blend with the colors,
Become entranced with their facile freedom.
Become something that’s already flickered by a person’s eye,
Drown in light,
Become admired,
Be exquisite.
I’ve tried to mend myself within these flashing images
Many times before,
But reality enjoys tapping your shoulder
And waking you from your dreams.

Hey Hannah, since our emails are really messing up, I think it's because your Yahoo is corrupted, since my email is working just fine aside from messaging you. So I'd get a new email, if you see this beforehand :) Also, I loved the poem! :)
