Backup Plan


My backup plan is to stay and keep pursuing my passion.

Even if it means a lifetime pouring coffee or serving drinks, or waiting tables just to keep my head above water.

My backup plan is to look at the lights and know I am home as I receive yet another rejection. 

My backup plan Is to drown out everyone around me

Telling me that I'm insane, Because I already know I am.

I know I could easily be at the top of any logical path I choose, But what a waste of life that would be.

So yes I'm insane I am signing up for a life with no stability, no safety net and thousands ready to fall next to me.

But my backup plan Is to not waste this creative energy,

Doing some boring day job that would ultimately make me crazier than I already am.

So my plan is to live without a single regret, Because I tried and did what I love.

So no matter what happens my plan was a success.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,
Val' as it is,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
