"Don't punish yourself," she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness too. That was writing."
--Markus Zusak, "The Book Thief"

The dark night sky holds
a cheshire cat moon,
under which we sit
looking up.
Your smile seems real,
and mine seems real too,
but the cheshire cat
smiles the biggest.

"I have hated the words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right." -Liesel Meminger via Markus Zusac, "The Book Thief"

I really, really like the length of the poem, and the simplicity (now it probably isn't as simple as it seems, and I probably didn't get it, but whatever I did get was awesome). Great job Rayyn, as always.
