chocolate milk and dirty band-aids,
distant love and horror flicks;
a mix of macabre and lyric
all get me through the day.

you know,
rain is a excellent prescription
for the blues.
I just wish it came in a bottle.

now take into consideration
that I may need medication
to help the time tick by
a little faster without you.

and if I keep my heart on my sleeve,
would you be delicate?
or should I tuck it away
forever in my chest
from grubby hands
that want to rip it apart
for their own amusement?

'you know,

I adore this line, and this poem.

It's so simplistic, but yet meaningful and sweet.
