Favorite Quote:
"The Dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins, but in the heart of its strength lies weakness: One lone candle is enough to hold it back.
Love is more than a candle.
Love can ignite the stars." -Matthew Stover

If books could be eaten, they'd be many a flavor.

The bitterness of struggle for survival.

And the sweetness of victory and love.

The tangy, bitter-sweet twinge of war.

The freshing taste-full of cleansing water(--purity).
Salty, spiced flavor of a well-seasoned vocabulary.

Overpowering urge to never let down.

Syrup that flows the strung words together.

The aftertaste of mind and heart; pure emotion lingering.

First impression of colors; smell and feel.

Ending in mouths, savoring the words they speak.

Reciting as they search the food they devour.

Memorizing the feel it leaves on their lips.
Grabbing at suspended straws, searching for possibilities.

Never really wanting to find the end.

Singing the words in lyrical tones.

Rejoicing when they have said it just right.

--To learn it, you must speak it a thousand times over
Because with each repetition, it brings even more.

Passed down by tradition. To many a friend.

Forked over unto foe; shoveled out in angry heaval.

Never to wait itself out.

--Words can last forever in a people.....
But they can be, ever more:

To live in a mind; laugh in a soul; perish in the heart; and bring forth new life.

I can tell you now:
that word--s live forever.

The author's comments:
This is just something that sparked up and took its own path, though somewhat contradicting the path I started it on....... But, words can find their own way, no?
It's kind of like this: you can start 'em out on a certain path, but in the end, you don't get to decide where they end up going.
Because, I guess, when you trully just let your mind and instinct take you away, it--all the rest--just falls into its own place........ Well, that's what I guess. But I don't know.......... Like that for any of you all, out there? Hmmmm? Huh? Well, I don't know, but there ya go, kay?
Oh, and what actually initially spurred this up was the book, "The Book Thief." I'm in the middle of reading it and plan to finish it. It's a nice read if you're into reading. About the Holocaust and stuff, and though I'm not into that, so far it's been really sweet and almost sorta fun to read, so. Good luck to all ya writers out there!
And--by the way, even if you feel like your work is worthless--don't.
'Cause whether you think this is worthless or not, I am rarely, if ever, satisfied with my work.
--So don't be so low, because the chances are, that it means something special to someone out there when they read it. Even the most bland writing can be touching enough to inspire a whole band of readers. Even simple words may be worth a fortune.
--Just some advice! Good luck! ^u^
