For long hours
I sat staring up at the sky,
Watching the clouds
Moving across the blue
Clouds without a drop of rain
Clouds that are empty
As empty as I am.

My visions of bliss
Will never see the light of day.
I run my eyes around,
I look at them
Remembering the love and meaning
I'd put into each brushstroke

But I'd advanced too far
I had crossed the abyss
That separates me from my Dream
And now there was no going back.

"Imperfection is beauty. Madness is genius. And its better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. And when it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, I'm already better than them."
