"Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works." Virginia Wolf


A pool of blood,

Surrounds me,

A horror scene,

For all to see.

Wounds cover me,

From head to toe,

Telling stories new and old.

I've been beaten, 

I've been bruised,

And it all started,

The day I left you.

Now I draw,

My final breath,

Looking up,

To see the light at last.

This talks about that when you feel overwhelmed with sadness and loss you just give up and make it your choice to die. Comment please!

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]

Love, because you can’t love your way out of the lunatic asylum, but it makes it more fun to be a lunatic.

But death is not freedom because you leave people behind and you don't know what's ahead. Death is not a reasonable escape from life. So I guess...we're stuck with life.
