"These gems have life in them: their colors speak, say what words fail of." ~George Eliot

My name is Tanzanite Tears.

I love to read, especially thought-provoking works, mainly well-written fantasy. I like anything that challenges my mind and creativity, and anything that can take me by surprise. Thoroughly-developed character are something I look for in things I read, as that invokes empathy for them and lets my own mind analyze and add to them.

I greatly enjoy writing, and am constantly looking to improve myself as a writer. I write many genres, but I will only post poetry under this account. I enjoy creating metaphors, analogies, and symbolism in my writing. I am still growing as a writer, and I appreciate any constructive criticism that can improve my skills.

My step-sister, my best friend, left me for the popular crowd, and later, my best friend got bored of me and cast me away. A poem about losing yourself, and the little things, and people, that lead you back towards sanity.
