Favorite Quote:
“The earth has music for those who listen.” —William Shakespeare


Sometimes you don't draw what you see,

because it looks better another way,

or the way you wish it would be.

 

Sometimes you don't say what you think,

because that's not what they want to hear,

or it's not something you want them to know.

 

Sometimes I don't write

whatever it is that I write,

because it's the last thing I want to think about,

the last thing I want to understand,

the last thing I want to remember.

But then it gets all jumbled up inside

with nowhere to go

getting so full

it starts to overflow

and all you can do is watch,

watch and long for it was

the way you wish it would be.
