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

Today it was fourteen degrees
even though it felt like three,
and the wind was heavy enough
to blow me off of my candlestick

I was smashed under the snow
and like a grain of wheat I
crumbled after the free-fall,
choking on the fifteenth of
February and an 11:30 curfew.

I was an elastic band, snapping
over the edges and stinking of
burning rubber and suicidal

You are all I have, please do not
leave me.
