For Austin...


If we shadows have offended,
Think but his, and all is mended;
That you have but slumb'red here,
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend;
If you pardon, we will mend.
And, as I am an honest Puck,
If we have unearned luck
Now to scape the serpent's tongue,
We will make amends are ere long;
Else the Puck a liar call;
So, good night unto you all...

Charlotte Observer - Death Notices


Do you realize that you have the most beuatiful face?
Do you realize we're floating in space?
Do you realize that happiness make you cry?
Do you realize that everyone you know, someday, will die?
And instead of saying all of your goodbyes
Let them know you realize that life goes fast
It's hard to make the good things last
You realize if something doesn't go down
It's just an illusion cause by the world
Spinning round.
