"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’s this broken telephone that I
Haven’t picked up in years
Tangled cord, knotting dysfunction
Sun-washed color, 80’s pink
Spinning dial, aging yellow
Busy line
Please hold

Tapping foot,
Break the silence, speak into
The microphone
Frantically waiting
Breath is failing
Leave a message
At the tone

Skip a beat
Air unsweet
Fiery lungs are flared;
My unhappiness is
An emergency but
Never cared.
