"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

I try to paint with
Vivid colors,
But they blend and flood my canvas
With murky grey.
I attempt to sketch
With velvet lines,
But the graphite is jagged beneath my hands,
Trembling within tarnished fingers.
I try to shade
With black shadows,
But wherever light is supposed to reign,
Crimson red drips instead.

And you blame me for your mistakes…
But why? I’m merely the artist.

Very artistic if you know what I mean ;). Reminded me of a quote about authors and artists and how they both paint the canvas of the beholder.

"I wish I could be a little less dramatic, like a Kennedy when Camelot went down in Flames." -Miranda Lambert

This poem is great! It's super deep and it doesn't say this is about this, so the reader can kind of make it for a specific situation or just life itself. Great job!

This is really deep and amazing. It kinda sounds like a cutter telling their story in a way which I find extremly good. I hope your okay though but overall Omazing as usual :3
