Did you know my sister takes pills?
Pills to make her sleep,
Pills to help her breathe.

Did you  know my sister has poor thinking skills?
In the way she can't let things go,
And is constantly scared.

Did you know that my sister,
Is my bestfriend, will be,
Till the end.

Did you know,

That sometimes I worry about her.?

pick, take, place, return,
repeat,
no more,
I promise.
I return.
I pick, I take, I place, I return.
constantly.
I pick the life, I take their time, I place it back on the counter,
a week later,
and then I return.
to the wisdom creator.
the power,
to relieve me of my woes,
of everyday life.

she, the one with the computer, and the scanner,
has the power to give me other lives,
or to make me love mine,

a little more

pick, take, place, return,
repeat.

i really love the library

OH GOOD GOD
trays of empty cigarettes lay displayed,
I find happiness in the strangest of places,
I'M NO GOOD AT INTRODUCTIONS,

So I'll make this sweet,
Sweet,
And well,
Brief.

DON'T GET ME WRONG!
I love to speak,
Shaky hands,
What was that equation?
WAIT!
That's not geometry!

HOLY SWEET WINE!
I'm running out if time!
SHIT..
does this have to rhythm?!
SHIT!

I can feel water between my toes,
Filling up my ears.
I'm in bed?
Is that normal?

I have this theory,
That normal doesn't exist..

CUZ WE'RE ALL CRAZY...




right...?

I don't like facing other worldly decisions

All the card holders are empty,
ABUSED? PLEASE CALL!
SEXUAL ASSAULT SURVIVAL HOTLINE!
SUICIDEL TEEN HOTLINE!
These cards fill the library restroom,
(Library? REFUGE)
It's great these organizations exist,
Yes help,
More please!
What's more disturbing to me,
Is the fact that we need them,
Or even more so,
That the holders are empty.
The victims are,
Only increasing in numbers,
people are just becoming numbers,
And teenagers,
Are just statistics anymore.

I don't like cold technology,
I'd prefer bulky computers,

I don't like kindles,
I prefer books,

I prefer blue eye shadow,
To contouring.

I,
Was born in the wrong time.
I wish life was like the 80s,
When children still played outside.
I like old 'scary' movies that aren't scary at all,
But today's 'horror'
Is,
Not even laughable.

I wish I could've watched Star Trek the original series on tv,
When I came home from school,

Or at least seen the original Star Wars, in the theaters.

This generation just doesn't do it for me at all.

Not sure,
If I should hug you,
Or shake your hand,
In the back of my mind,
I shouldn't touch you,
Too familiar,
I guess.
If I strike up conversation,
We'll be laughing I know,
But what will I do,
(Shake your hand? Hug you?)
When i have to go.

I'm a coward,
I know,
With no good reasons why,
But your right,
When you say,
It's time that we tried

My biggest concern is how to say bye

I'm reading,
My third book this week,
I'm eating,
Swallowing literature whole,
One after the other,
A light snack,
(Teeny bopper, singletons)
But sometimes those stories don't satisfy.
(Poe, Cummings,)
Oh,
The list grows,
Like vegetables,
In a garden of wonder,
I wonder,
How many I can devour..
Before I explode.

My books are my escape, get me on the train.
