Favorite Quote:
I wasn't kissing her. I was whispering in her mouth.~ Chico Maroc

In youth, it was a way I had,
To do my best to please.
And change, with every passing lad
To suit his theories.
But now I know the things I know
And do the things I do,
And if you do not like me so,
To hell, my love, with you.~Dorothy Parker

Silent broken tears cascade down your face
You, who is so unkind,
Why are you crying?
Are you sad for all the pain, all the loneliness, all the hurt?
I don't want you
How could I want you?
All the sins, all the lies
Do you think I have forgotten?
Please...no more
Your tears hold no more truth than your wasted promises
Your tears are just as broken as your worthless self
I don't want you
My heart is ruined
You, who is the cause,
Why are you crying?
You cannot take back your actions, your betrayals, your damage
So, please...no more
What has happened is the past
You've made your decision and I mine
So focus on the future...
With the dryness of my eyes
with the treadmarks on my heart
with the guilt on your face
with the naivety lost
with the hope destroyed...
The future is ahead
Are you ready to live?

your mistake?
