Favorite Quote:
The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

Tears shine like pearls from the sea
Dripping salt water
Slow down her cheek

Hello never sounded so sweet
She smiles a smile
That doesn't show teeth

It's later than mother would like
She couldn't care less
The time of the night

The wind from the train whips her face
And as fast as she goes
She's jogging in place

Knowing the truth isn't nice
To believe doesn't
Always need sight

So although they're going away
In her heart she knows
They'll always stay

I'm not going to say what this poem's about. See if you can figure it out for yourself.
