2005

I was excited that the Colts won last night, although they were way ahead I had to watch until the last minute, somehow I thought there would be a way for them to blow it. Thankfully they dissapointed me on that one.

I haven’t been feeling well, this cold is kicking my butt and it seems as though I just can’t shake it, I wished it would hurry and run it’s course. Today it seems to have broken some, at least my nose is finally running and I’m breathing better.

1999

You were here again
I saw your sign
It makes me wonder if your pain is my design?
or do you come to torment
to say it's never to be mine.

You read my thoughts but do you know anymore than you did upon your last visit? Does he call my name? Does he think of me? Do I of him? You wonder as you read, for who the words are written. Am I thinking of blue eyes, and a Southern Night? Am I dreaming of eyes of green upon the eastern sea? or are they brown, and hidden by a crown? Yes you do wonder, but you shall never know where my thoughts are and where my words may led. For once I held love in my hand but for a moment, and no matter what you shall never change that. Does your spells still cast? and do you wonder how long it may last? I know the pain and it never ends, as long as you continue to hide the truth from thyself. Do you lie to him of what you have done and where you have been? Take care, for if you throw it away your a fool.

1998

A tempest of emotion
changes in the wind
raging spirits
spent and reborn
anger surfaces
hurt arises
emptiness invades
spent

1997

I write down everything I want to remember. That way, instead of spending a lot of time trying to remember what it is I wrote down, I spend the time looking for the paper I wrote it down on.
