"And when the day arrives, I'll become the sky, and I'll become the sea. And the sea will come to kiss me, for I am going home. Nothing can stop me now."
Hello. I'm Thoughts That Drift Away. I'm from North Carolina and I'm currently working on a few poems I'm doing. Mostly every piece of my writing will be poetry so don't expect stories from me, unless by some miracle I come up with some idea for a story, but that probably won't happen. I am a writer who finds inspiration where many other writers would and would not, and I find that letting yourself fall into the beauty you admire and love is the most spiritual connection an artist can achieve. I listen to music as a creative outlet for my poetry, and I write when I am inspired to do so.

-Make Your Partner Smile
Description: From a discarded acting assignment sheet left in the art building of my school campus is the basis of "Make Your Partner Smile," an activity that, when I read it, immediately gripped me and the rawness of it had me excited to try applying in a different artistic medium. This is my first attempt at "found poetry," all credit goes to Robert Cohen of Cape Fear Community College.
Theme(s): Friendship, Loss
Inspiration: Acting I, Lesson 4 "Acting with the other"
Musical Inspiration: None
"A day once dawned, and it was beautiful
A day once dawned from the ground
Then the night she fell
And the air was beautiful
The night she fell all around.
So look see the days
The endless coloured ways
And go play the game that you learned
From the morning.
And now we rise
And we are everywhere
And now we rise from the ground
And see she flies
And she is everywhere
See she flies all around.
So look see the sights
The endless summer nights
And go play the game that you learned
From the morning."

"You have a voice. How are you going to use it?" -A.I.R
