Rookie (3/10/93 / Round Rock Texas)


My heart,
Sometimes Is so full of Despair.
So much that I cannot Bear
Sometimes I feel like I am Flying,
But sometimes I just lie there Crying.
I’m so sick now of your Lying
That I think I’ll just quit Trying.

Sometimes I forget to care,
It gets difficult, because of this tear.
And though it is very rare,
I just don’t see how this is fair.
For me to feel this,
Utter Despair.

drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
