"If one will scoff at the study of language, how, save in terms of language, will one scoff?" - Mario Pei
"I write for the same reason I breathe - because if I didn't, I would die." Isaac Asimov

is like thoughts
and emotions
spilt onto a page
in a jumble,
then carefully arranged
into a pattern so
the bright colours
and sharp spikes
and hearts
and cobwebs
and tears
and blood
strike the heart
just right.
