Time and risk caught up to you;
Gagged you into silence.
Chasing down the dragon was
Your favorite form of violence.

I saw its markings on your skin;
The gauntness of your eyes
Your searching fingers scratching down
To truth, as you breathed lies

China white won this round, love
You thought you'd always dance
The dragon chose another one
And turned its gaze askance.
Toss a penny my way

When I am old,
And sadly steal apart,
Into the dark and cold,
Friend of my heart!
Remember, if you can,
Not him who lingers, but that other man,
Who loved and sang, and had a beating heart, --
When I am old!

When I am old,
And all Love's ancient fire
Be tremulous and cold:
My soul's desire!
Remember, if you may,
Nothing of you and me but yesterday,
When heart on heart we bid the years conspire
To make us old.

When I am old,
And every star above
Be pitiless and cold:
My life's one love!
Forbid me not to go:
Remember nought of us but long ago,
And not at last, how love and pity strove
When I grew old!

If I die I die pretty
That's what I said
Sitting in the cafeteria one day during lunch
23 minutes to discuss the world

looking around we talked about boys
love and history facts
about how people cant cease to amaze
how they seem to think they can scare us
the three musketeers
but we know better

You have my back
I have yours
you'll yell at the girl with the frizzy red hair
wearing his jersey
on play offs of course

I'll threaten to trip him
kick him in the hall
they try to take it
take it all

but we know better
keep our hearts strong
keeping each other safe
helping each other along

my back doors always open I say
as you tell about the fight
you and your dad
the endless plight

We are all friends
sitting at lunch
talking of life
our sophomore year moving
faster than we thought

lets hope this never ends
our friendship
our plans
lets always eat lunch
eat lunch as friends

Fishing around
in the ocean of my dreams
I caught a mighty big thought
until the line broke
and it swam away
that is when I forgot
