"'It always has to end, doesn’t it? We always have to separate.'
'Yes,' I said.
He was insistent, 'But it doesn’t always have to be that way. We could be together someday for always.'
'Oh, no,' I told him, wondering if he knew it was all over. 'We keep running till we die. We separate; get further apart, till we are dead.'
He has no home; he is unhappy. I could be the source of his joy, the refuge of his life. And I can only pass on.

Something in me wants more. I can’t rest. Without emotion I let him kiss me. The evening had been lovely, complete. I had been alone more than I could have been had I gone by myself. The poor guy; there is no one nicer.

Perhaps someday I’ll crawl back home, beaten, defeated.
But not as long as I can make stories out of my heartbreak, beauty out of sorrow."
-Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

"Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want" -She and Him (cover)

Good times for a change
See, the luck I've had
Can make a good man
Turn bad

So please, please, please
Let me, let me, let me
Let me get what I want
This time

Haven't had a dream in a long time
See, the life I've had
Can make a good man bad

So for once in my life
Let me get what I want
Lord knows, it would be the first time
Lord knows, it would be the first time

"When The Rain Came"- A Poem

I remember the day
When I rode my bike home in the rain.
The sky got quiet and the trees didn’t breathe,
And then the rain came.
I’d never felt a million needles
Landing on my skin all at once,
But that day, I swear to you,
I felt alive.
I was alive when the mascara ran down my face,
Like cascading rivers of blackness.
I was alive when my jeans stuck to me,
Forcing my movement slowly to almost nothing.
I was alive because I remember laughing
Then gasping for some extra helpings of that
Air that was flooded with oxygen.
Crisp, energizing, and fresh oxygen,
While I pedaled, and pedaled
All the way to my warm garage.
And the best part was,
When I found shelter and the rainbow came out,
It was the most electrifying rainbow I’d ever seen,
Because I had given it life.
