Iamaper-fectionist, and a realist.I wonder where my life is going.I hear music.I see nothing that isn’t there.I want opportunities.I am a perfectionist and a realist.I pretend like I have everything under control.I feel weighed down.I touch nothing.I worry about everything.I cry more in books than in real life.I48

  • 12. 11I dropped a quarter in the slot and pressed A-42,the bass line started hummin from afar,the guy behind the counter mixed me up another brew,I saw my teardrops splashin on the bar. The pain was like a bullwhip - just one year ago todaymy little Dolly lost her gallant fight,the angels came a callin and they took my girl awayand still I cry most every single night. Her favorite song. I still recall her eyes aglow at meeach time I hummed that sentimental tune,Id put my arms around her neck and hold her tenderly,but then she went and left me way too soon. The images flashed through my mind of just a year before,it broke my heart to lay her in the ground,we had three happy years but there would never be no more,I hung my head and howled just like a hound. The song upon the jukebox ended, everything was still,that bar-room was as quiet as a mouse,the barman looked at me and said: "Ole Buddy, drink your fill,and everything tonight is on the house." A cowboy brought a bottle over, stood there by my side,he said: "Heres to your grief, I see its bad,"I blinked through tears "One year ago today, my Dolly died -the best dang horse a cowboy ever had!"

MY SONNETThe first three were hard-core fighting marvelsThe last was a giant disappointmentThe middle few were fillers passing timelove the characters that showed such passionJust to make me cry and scream in the endFor her to save the world was the missionIt was only the superiors savedWhile the rest of the normals left to dieTo choose between the friend and the babywas the real underlying story hereWith wings to soar as high as the mountainsthey were a family under the starsRunning from who hurt them never to escapeFor years we followed them until they died13

  • 24. My heart aches, and a drowsy numbnesspainsMy sense, as though of hemlock I haddrunk,Or emptied some dull opiate to thedrainsOne minute past, and Lethe-wards hadsunk:Tis not through envy of the happy lot,But being too happy in thy happiness,–That thou, light-winged Dryad of thetrees,In some melodious plotOf beechen green, and shadows number-less,Singest of summer in full-throated ease.O for a draught of vintage, that hathbeenCooled a long age in the deep-delvedearth,Tasting of Flora and the country green,Dance, and Provencal song, and sun-burnt mirth!O for a beaker full of the warm South,Full of the true, the blushful Hippocrene,With beaded bubbles winking at thebrim,And purple-stained mouth;That I might drink, and leave the worldunseen,And with thee fade away into the forestdim:Fade far away, dissolve, and quite forgetWhat thou among the leaves hast never23
