Favorite Quote:
That which we persist in doing becomes easier, not that the task itself has become easier, but that our ability to perform it has improved.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Words lingering
This new statement
Stole our voice boxes
And reduced us to silence

Both of us thinking
How did he...?
But should we listen to someone
Who is never here

Putting a finger
On what we have
Might not be
As hard as you think

This perfect stranger
Came into our lives; classified
And left
Words lingering
