  1. Wicked clash

    The heart is stubborn and juvenile.

    When reason talks, it stays silent.

    But out of resistance and defiance.

  2. A Cloisters in New York

    I have long been a huge fan of medieval art.

    writing sad songs about heart break
    and flooding rains of tears.

    You must not think I am unromantic
    because I do not see the reason why
    I should throw myself at the feet
    as if upon an altar of worship
    before another who I know will never
    love me back, and that I neglect to

    ...Heart of stone...
    ...stone cold eyes...
    ...eyes with intent...
    ...intent to destroy...

    ...child who lost...
    ...lost her innocence...
    ...innocence gone forever...
    ...forever baring scars...
    ...scars that still remind...
    ...remind her of that night...
    ...night that haunts...
    ...hanuts her dreams...
    ...dreams filled with screaming...
    ...screaming ...
