Favorite Quote:
"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory."
- Leonard Nimoy

Living within cracks of dawn,

On upsides of downward time

Dwell spirits dawning taints 

Darkened from dividend torment. 

Grasping amongst deviation 

Towards all lost in disparage

Ashes and ashes and dust to dust

Dilute each living’s dose

Nay towards none as dreary 

Are ones daunted by delusions belonging of Death. 

The author's comments:

Ever since losing my best friend who I call brother to Death, I have still felt his presence amongst me daily. When we lose someone, they do not dissapear; they are merely misplaced within our minds and hearts. In this poem, I address how, depsite having been without my friend, he is still forever with me.
