Poetry Post

So I finally tackled some of the squalor that has become my condo and as I was cleaning my office I unearthed copies of the poetry magazine from my high school. As I thumbed through issue after issue and read over some of my old work, I realized I haven't written any poetry in eons! Which is downright bizarre considering I have stacks of notebooks filled with my poetry. It used to be my refuge; my solace. So I sat down the other night, slightly sleep-deprived and I wrote some poems. I hope you like them. 

We are Numbers 

We are a series of numbers
Social Security number
Drivers license number
Student ID number
Patient number

You take an exam,
You fill in your number
Your name, irrelevant

You call your doctor
You tell her your patient number
Your name, an afterthought

We are just another number in an endless sea of numbers
Undulating wildly
Ebbing and flowing
But always a number
Just 1 of many



Dreams stay with me like a heavy fog that won't lift
Won't let go
Entangling in my reality
Blurring the lines
Which is which
Each leaking into the next
Reality, Dream, Indiscernible
They become totally, utterly enmeshed
Become one singular entity

What happened
What didn't
What was dreamt
What was done

That once faint  blurred line

So what did you think??

That's all for now folks!
Keep reading!

We Want What We Can't Have

We want what we can't have; it's a fact! If you ever want a 3-year-old boy to eat his food, just use reverse psychology and tell him he can't eat it and watch how fast he eats his dinner.  When we're kids we want each other's toy cars and Barbie dolls, when we're adults, it's each other's boyfriends and spouses. The whole world is filled with toddlers who want what isn't theirs to have.

I am no exception. A lot of times, people will ask me how I have time for a boyfriend. I usually laugh and say I don't. The dad of the little boy and girl I now nanny for asked me the other day, "You're so busy between working and then school in the fall and Quiz do you have time for a love life?" I answered him honestly: "What love life?" This made him laugh but it's true.

I don't date, not that many people try to sway me lol. But every once in a while, I want what I can't have, what I don't really have time for; sometimes I think it would be so fun just to date some guy (and by "some guy" I mean some guy that's "just right"). I mean, I'm in college right? But I have rules for these kinds of things (and no it's not nearly as boring as it sounds); I don't date. I can hang out with a guy. I can have a great time with a guy, but I don't date. Aren't I just the little masochist? Constantly tempting myself but never letting myself get what I want.

As I write this, there's a certain song that's running through my head. You know the one. By the Rolling Stones? You can't always get what you waaant. You can't always get what you wa-ant. You can't always get what you wa-ant, but if you try sometimes well you might find... you get what you neeed oh yeah!  Except, am I getting what I need?

That's all for now folks
Stay tuned for more Randomocity and keep reading!

Oh So Sorry

How long has it been since I've written?
I'm not even sure.
I see I've lost a reader, and I can't blame them! What's the  point in subscribing to a blog that never has new posts!!
I wish I had some super cool excuse like-- "Hey guys sorry I was climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and I didn't have internet soooooo bad!"
Unfortunately, I don't have some awesome excuse like that. I'm sorry. Forgive me?

Stay tuned for frequent blog posts though!!! I'm going to be stuck in bed for 5 weeks soo expect lots of fun posts!

That's all for now folks! Keep reading!
