Favorite Quote:
Poetry is the soundtrack to my life, the lyrics are my thoughts accompanied by the melody of my emotions.

Before but not in time
Ever elusive yet I cling to you
Strong rope, invisible until I cry
You silently make a sound
Wait until I blink
And then you’re gone
Into the gloom, into the sun
You are with me in love
Yet you leave when I fall
Or is it just that I’m not looking
Shadow bright at dusk but hides at noon
You’re on the heels of regret and the breath of a smile
