Quote of the Week

When I write, I want you to see the blood I bled, with each word; I want you to taste the tears I cried, feel the sweat that pored from my brow with each agonizing syllable; I want you to laugh at each joyful remembrance and weep at each assailable tragedy that has befallen me; I want you to swallow the bitter taste of my truth, and devour the sweetness of every lie. When I write, I want you to be faced with the inescapable me and maybe see yourself in the mirror that I am holding up before you.

--Joseph Powell
