Favorite Quote:
Nothing matters more than those who depend on you, emotionally or physically. Even if the situation is life or death, you have to be there for them, because they need you.

You tossed me through the windowpane, shattered,
With all the trash you've accumulated.
It hurt to know that to me it mattered,
Without me you were exuberated.

But you were my life and you were my love.
Why couldn't you listen to me?
I used to live for your good morning hugs,
Now that kind of joy I will never see.

You treat me like the dirt under your feet,
But you have no idea that still, I care.
You're breaking my heart every time that we meet;
The part that would love you forever.

Friend's good enough, yet you tore us apart.
I just wanted to fit inside your heart.

The author's comments:
My English 9 Honors teacher assigned an assignment that said we had to write a sonnet. First...I wrote a song. Then...I wrote the sonnet. This is the sonnet based off my song Inside Your Heart. It's just about pretending to be someone you aren't because you want other people to love you.
