The doctor wrote me a prescription
after perception
“This will help”
Help? I want a cure
“Try this one”
Try? I want it to work.
"This may come with side effects”
Side effects? I’m suffering enough!

I don’t want this
hard pressed
foreign substance
with random numbers pressed in to it
and a
ritualistic need
for me take force it down my throat
twice a day
I don’t want it.
I am in need of something so much more

these pills are about sacrifices
treat this, get that
it’s *******

So I wrote my doctor a prescription
“prescribe less, help more”

No prescription ever did help
enough for me to stick to it
I would rather suffer
this pain than
experience those side effects
and feel the need that I am reliant upon
a pill to make me

so the next time I saw my doctor
I was told a short story
and by the end of it
I was laughing so hard
I forgot about my misery

bodies age
minds dulls
eye sight fades
but long lives our souls

nothing makes college kids happier than
nothing rambles them up more than a friday night of drinking
a party is not complete without some herb and
hopefully a keg, maybe a 24 pack, hell even a 4 pack of
would do, if only one of those was in my fridge but all I see is a single, lonely
if only I could grow a *******
then maybe I could buy some more ice cold, refreshing

you started thinking
that you knew everything
so you just started doing
and stopped thinking

and that is what ****** you
doing without thinking
because you thought you could
without thinking about it

but you couldn't
think about it

I love those
unspoken connections
with strangers

whether it be a simple smile
a nod of your head
or just brief eye contact

you have no idea who this person is
but on some level for just a moment
you understand them

it’s pathetic
how easily
I think I fall in love

a pretty girl will sit next to me in class
and I see that she is wearing
some cool socks
immediately I think
this is the chick for me
I make connections
on assumptions
about this girl
who I have no idea about
besides her cool socks
and I am happy for a moment
because of this slight potential
for love

so I study her
a band t-shirt
     I dig
skinny jeans
and a very pretty face
she doesn’t dye her hair
     always a plus for me
she is focused on her notes
and just like that
I’m in love

I start imagining
our future together
how incredible she is
her laugh
...which I haven’t heard yet
I see she has a wonderful smile
and I have so much hope
that she will like me
as much as I like her
well, what I think I like about her
based on her socks

she starts playing with her necklace
there is a heart on it
with wings
is she taken?
maybe she just got it from a family member
hopefully she did
     probably not
should I still talk to her?

I have fallen in and out
of love
in a matter of minutes
sadly enough
I’m pretty good at this
I do it almost everywhere I go

This class is boring
you're the highlight of this hour
let’s continue this

Your shoes are groovy
your character wonderful
I’m sure there is more

You free after class?
to learn more about each other?
smoothie of coffee?
I gave this to a girl after class because we had been talking for a while. We did get coffee and she turned out to be really cool, but she moved away. :/
