    Rise and Fall

    I...am...completely empty. I can't write or create in sadness. I can not write out of pain. Even now, it's hard to make the words come out. Usually, the words flow once I find out a way to deal with issues, challenges, and obstacles. Now I am just...

    A muse to authors and artists, and inspiration to many a timid lover. Serendipity might inspire great acts, but fate doesn't allow her to be the recipient of her inspiration.
