Smiling

June 16, 2010
Happiness is
In a car at midnight
On the way home from a birthday party
Of your best friend
Who you haven’t seen in a while
Dad driving
Lying across the backseat
Watching trees glide by in the dark upside down
Warm

Fed on ice cream and games of Mafia
And a Saturday tomorrow
The radio is on
Your favorite song
Begins to play
And you sing along quietly.

Finally found your work! It's a little annoying that Teenink doesn't have links right on the page of the person. You're really good though. Like, really. I've read quite of a few of your pieces (decided I'd comment on this one). I'm actually incredibly jealous of your writings. Fantastic work :)
