Favorite Quote:
A girl with a bird she found in the snow
Then flew up her gown and that's how she knows
That God madr her eyes for crying at birth
Then left the ground to circle the earth

What is this insatiable hunger?
I desire motion, but cannot dance
I have to sway in the breeze without moving my feet
I am a hallowed tree racking against the walls of normalcy

What is this horrid sight?
I crave freedom, but get handed chains
I have to fly but live within a cage
I am a bird looking to the sky without wings

What is this empty touch?
I feel the burn of words but not the caress of song
I have to stroke the boiling flames of hope
I am a dragon whose breath is soaked before it leaves my lips

What is this soundless scream?
I wish for the sound of love, but am handed the door to my own cell
I have to sit in silence as I'm bombarded with tongues sharper than steel
I am a frog surrounded by peers but cannot sing

What is this vile taste?
I ache to spread my blooms, but am hit with bruises
I have to kneel my petals to the ground and pray for the rain of wind to halt
I am a sunflower whose petals are wilted and gray

I am.
I am.
I am.

I haven't posted for a while, so I thought maybe i should. It's a new year, this is a new life. This is a new style, and I am a new person. Enjoy.
