Favorite Quote:
“I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist.”
-Jack London

Her heart is an empty page
With unspoken words;
Unshed tears;
Unheard feelings;
Unvoiced resentment.
Artificial bliss
Conveyed through a content façade
Is sketched about her persona.
Silent screams echo through
The barren lines of the notebook.
A tear in the paper
Represents her transparency;
No one ever sees her.
No one hears her.
A mirage of apprehensive compunction;
Neglect and battles lost;
Is torn out of the notebook,
Crumpled up
And thrown away.
