― So if you didn't know, I am a poet. A published poet. I've been writing poetry since I was 12 years old. Unfortunately, in the past couple of years I stopped writing from lack of inspiration.

One of my favorites. ∙ Picture via www.titanicuniverse.com ∙ (copyrights 1998-2012 Melissa Velia/ Melissa Holden) ∙ The Ship ∙ Oh look there she goes, ∙ Out to sea filled with [...].
