Favorite Quote:
These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which, as they kiss, consume. The sweetest honey
Is loathsome in his own deliciousness
And in the taste confounds the appetite.
Therefore love moderately.

Heart of glass,
Delicate and broken.
Easy to bypass--
Strong-willed, but soft-spoken.

Heart of breaks,
Sad and torn.
Standing in the dark
So forlorn.

Heart of Heaven,
Please stay near.
Put down love’s gun
And don’t shed a tear.

Heart of love,
Full to bursting.
This is the passionate kiss
For which we have been thirsting.

High school study halls are so lame that I resort to writing sub-par poetry. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this mediocre attempt at poetry. :)
