    Ballard of the Moon The moon came to the forge wearing a bustle of nards. The boy is looking at her. The boy is looking hard. In the troubled air, the wind moves her arms, showing lewd and pure, her hard, tin breasts. "Run, moon, moon, moon. If the gypsies came, they would make...

    I made my wall into a "quote-wall"

    as I call it. I wrote the most beautiful quotes I know down on notes and hang them up all over my wall. I feel like home whenever I step into my room.

    He's not perfect you aren't either,

    and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn't going to quote poetry, he's not thinking about you every...

    or relationship, they never fight hard to keep a job they love yet when all they want disappears they mong around wondering what happened. You evidentially didn't deserve it that's what happened.
