"Doubt Kills More Dreams Than Failure Ever Will"        ✯ Suzy Kassem ✯

The View

Recitation C9

Be still my beating heart
Speaking from the best of me
This thing from the dark part of my heart
Quickening this elusive thing that lives and breaths
That no one sees
And suddenly there it is
Blessing my lips with its words
Like a kiss
Such sweet sorrow
With a twist of tender mercy
To temper it with bliss
