Favorite Quote:
A girl needs to be so lost in God a guy has to seek Him to find her.

"I claim you in the name of the Shadow Ninja."

"I love you from the depths of my black soul."

"I just fell in love with you all over again!"

Pencil shavings lie on the floor
A candle flickers apathetically
An over-sharp pencil taps the blank paper

I remember every detail, every word
The lights reflecting off your eyes
Your hair falling over your face
The intensity in your voice
The blindness of your heart

The empty page leers back at me
Daring me to darken it's surface
Daring me to recreate the scene

I lift the pencil boldly
But it never touches the paper
I sit and watch the candle wax melt
As time mercilessly marches on
Alas! For the page remains empty

I was trying for about four hours to draw something, but it just wouldn't come. In amused frustration, I wrote this.
