I did learn a little bit about poetry in a creative writing class I took in college but all of that is long gone, I'm afraid. No iambic pantameter here.
can someone please just wake me when it's summer?
i'll be waiting, underneath the covers.
asleep, or at least pretending to be.
if i close my eyes long enough,
maybe it will come,
maybe you will come,
back to me.
enveloped in darkness,
an unholy reunion.
but it's just a dream, thoughts to pass the time.
(am i certain?)
i missed you today.
the sky is painted grey. it ate up the stars,
and so the sun went away.
i'd trade our false memories for just one ray of warmth upon my cheek.
your hand in mine no longer,
but sunshine makes me stronger.
i can sit up.
get out of bed.
of course, this is all hypothetical.
things i know i
can should do,
not just today but every day.
but it's raining,
and i'm tired.
i'll be waiting.
Ah. I feel like we know each other much better now. Can I make a confession? Or more just like share an embarrassing story. It's funny that I am so afraid of public speaking now, because when I was in 4th grade, I rapped in front of my elementary school during my campaign for student council secretary (wearing an orange turtleneck, nonetheless). I even remember a lot of the speech ....
My name is Kristin! (terrible beatboxing)
And I'm here to say (boom-boom-ch)
To vote for me (boom-boom-ch)
For sec-re-tar-ay! (boom-boom-ch)
I'll go to all the meetings (boom-boom-ch)
I'll take a lot of notes (boom-boom-ch)
But I just hope to have (boom-boom-ch)
All of your votes! (boom-boom-ch)
Oh dear. I wish I still had that level of confidence today! I think video exists, but that will never see the light of day (Mom).
Last night, Mat & I went on a little mini date. We got ice cream at Sonic and then saw G.I. Joe. I didn't even think those new molten cakes looked that good, but boy was I wrong.
I had the turtle one, and it was the right choice. I meant to take my own picture, but in true Kristin fashion, I ate it immediately.
That's all I've got for today.I hope that wasn't too painful ;)
Thanks for reading!
