Favorite Quote:
Music is always a healer. Music has never let me down. I know it’s my religion. There’s the idea that you can’t truly know happiness until you know sadness, so how can you heal yourself unless you’ve hurt yourself? I’m still figuring out who I am, but I know that I’m not who I was. -Brendon Urie

Even I can tell, indeed when it rains

I of all people can feel a small shift

Like the shaking of tracks on which the trains

Do roll, lies a god's special gift


To man and so it changed the power

I can feel my control as it slips

In this moment is in fact quite sour

As the droplets cascade down your soft lips


Clouds never allowing a ray of sun

To the unknowing it is refreshing

Rejuvenating, its second to none

Only now its possible a feeling


A positive feeling of happiness

And calming a feeling of mellowness

The author's comments:

I originally wrote a poem following this rhyme scheme two years ago, but my brit. lit. teacher offered extra credit to someone who would write a sonnet, so I revised and added a lot of words so it would be in iambic pentameter.

I will add the original at a later date.
