"We are born with two incurable diseases -- life, from which we die; and hope, which says maybe death isn’t the end."
- Andrew Greeley


Saved by a fingertip
holding on
it could never be wrong
to trust you.
Watch me sleep
headphones, face-smush
legs curled, two-handed sleeping face palm.
Silent guardian
playing
Pearl Jam
reading
Camus
“… break his nose
if he comes any closer …”
Might have been
nothing to you,
but it carefully
flipped my world.

The room was very quiet. I walked over to the TV set and turned it onto a dead channel-white noise at maximum decibels, a fine sound for sleeping, a powerful continuous hiss to drown out everything strange."

I like knowing the story behind the poem.

It's so much easier for me to visualize now n i love it :]

It's really sort of random, but I was at a lock-in where my ex was going to show up. The ex in question was one of those "Sleep with her, make her think you love her, then never reply to her calls" kind of guys, and he always acted like a jerk to me. My friends were there, and they were talking about what they'd do. My male friend (now boyfriend) said he'd break his nose if he came any closer. He was listening to Pearl Jam and reading Albert Camus The Stranger

This poem was amazing. Teh first time I read it I really didn't get it I had to read it a second time. Once I finally got it I was like wow! How did she come up with this. What I'm wondering is if it just popped into your head. Like a lightbulb just came to life. Anyway keep up the AMAZING work! Keep writing!

It very good imagery.
