Favorite Quote:
"I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh

“I don’t cry, but my heart is bleeding!”
Did you think it was the red-shamed guilt
Burning through the globes of my eyes?
No, it was a quiet victory after the ashes
A congregation of sweat and survival behind my lashes
For your bleeding heart stood testament to my
Utterly empty, tundra-bred, crystalline one—
You had always been dead to me in absentia
