    Cobalt blue stained eyelids wrinkle,

    Conflict "I wish I'd never met you" screams

    the agony in her heart. "I am glad I did" reply the smiles in her memory. "I wish I could hate you" says her mind. "I will always love you" whispers her heart.

    What I write is a pain.

    The misty sprites in speckled shadows dance

    among the ferns on the forest floor. Hemlock and western red cedar giants tower above the fungus jungle on the rotting leaves. The sun alters the smell of rain, and a light wind coaxes the wet from the branches. I think as quietly as I can because I am an intruder.
