I've been writing a lot lately; I don't know why this has suddenly begun. I've been writing poorly lately too, but then again, I don't know if I ever was actually writing particularly well to begin with. What follows are a few of the things I've turned out. Probably not the best, but definitely not the worst.
Drunken nights involving no liquor
keep me awake as my
imagination runs wild with
unlikely romantic notions.
Sensibility slinks in and hisses:
This life is not a romantic comedy.
There will be no grand declarations
of love. No last-minute-do-or-die
chases to the airport, no undying
adoration after only a weeks time.
The real-life duo of HeartBreak
and Bitter Disappointment are
sure to make a scene and
teach me what it really means
to burn when he sweeps
in and sets fire to my soul.
