Favorite Quote:
"Love a girl who writes,
and live her many lives;
you have yet to find her,
beneath her words of guise."

Cover my eyes
So I can’t see the tortured
So I won’t see the hungry

or sick
So I don’t see the pain

or the tears
Cover my eyes

Cover my ears
So I can’t hear the screams
So I won’t hear the sobs

or moans
So I don’t hear the breaking bones

or the twisted laughs
Cover my ears

Cover my nose
So I can’t smell the rotting corpses
So I won’t smell the fires

or ashes
So I don’t smell the blood

or the human waste
Cover my nose

Cover my mouth
So I can’t speak my mind
So I won’t hurt

or torment you
So I don’t tear you down

or the world
Cover my mouth

Cover my eyes
So I can’t
See what the world has become
See what you’ve become
See what I’ve become
Cover my eyes
