And thou art dead, as young and fair
As aught of mortal birth;
And form so soft, and charms so rare,
Too soon return'd to Earth!
Though Earth receiv'd them in her bed,
And o'er the spot the crowd may tread
In carelessness or mirth,
There is an eye which could not brook
A moment on that grave to look.

I will not ask where thou liest low,
Nor gaze upon the spot;
There flowers or weeds at will may grow,
So I behold them not:
It is enough for me to prove
That what I lov'd, and long must love,
Like common earth can rot;
To me there needs no stone to tell,
'T is Nothing that I lov'd so well.

Daniel James Anderson was born and raised in Chicago. He grew up in one of the city's poorer neighborhoods. He never really knew who his father was, and in truth, neither did his mother. Over the years, he had many stand-ins that called themselves 'Dad'. The last one was Frank. Frank never really liked Danny, and the feeling was pretty much mutual. Danny didn't particularly care for the way that Frank expressed his opinions with the back of his hand and when he was particularly expressive, his fists. Frank never cared for the fact that Karen's son as always around and that he was too emotional, too soft, too much like a girl. When he walked into the Danny's room, or rather purposefully barged in, and found him kissing another boy, Frank beat Danny black and blue. Danny found himself being thrown out of his own house by his mother's boyfriend. When Danny tried to plead his case to Karen, he wasn't all that surprised that his mother could not find the backbone to disagree with Frank.

Danny tried to get Greg, the boy that he had been caught with, to let him stay with him, but Greg didn't want anyone to know that he had been found making out with another boy. This left Danny with no options, no home, no nothing. He ended up on the streets. From there, he began an endless spiral downward. First he started selling himself to make money, then he started spending that money on drugs to make his life numb.
