"Poetry flows. Right from my heart, to the paper. The best poems create themselves within your heart, and your mind...well, the mind interprets them... See, think of your heart as the artist, and your mind as the audience... get it?"

Stars fallen from the sky
burn embers into your skin
and all of the scars
from broken refusals
(the no's and nevers)
A million little pieces
that hold you together
tie your mind and your body
threading effortlessly –
through the darkness
flames lining the walls,
doused into silence.
A million little pieces
lying upon the floor
connected by a thread,

The author's comments:
The million pieces that make us all who we are, are derivatives of our experiences in life. Our joys, our fears, our failures and successes. Piece by piece our stories are threaded into existence however they were meant to be.
