Favorite Quote:
We all carry these things inside us that no one else can see; they hold us down like anchors, they drown us out at sea.

All your tears will dry
If you just sway to the rhythm of love
Baby please don’t cry
Pretty, cute, beautiful, you’re all of the above
I need you desperately
Like a baby bird needs its mom
Please baby come back to me
Without you I’m like a bomb…
Ready to burst
To set off an explosion
So powerful
So big
So frightening
So fierce
I promise you, I’ll never leave
You and me, six feet under the stars
That’s where we’re meant to be
My heart is yours in a jar.
…I love you
