You are possible, possibilities, you are everything we are not. You are life, existence, the world, you do, you are, you will be, but us, we are impossible, we are in-life, non-existent, we don't, we are not and never will be. The blindfold stays on.

You, Me, Them, Us
by rain-coat reviews
“You don't understand.” It was almost funny how often we threw that word around. I had a feeling we all 'understood' a hell of a lot more than we ever wanted to, and most of it was only just beginning.

This Is Not A Damned Poem
by A.K.A. Writer's Block reviews
Life is not a poem. Life is not an essay or a school paper. Life is not meaningless but inspiring words desperately glued to the paper. It is love, fraily pinned there but never leaving. It is not afraid to disturb who we are.
