Nineteen years old
Private catholic college
Wishing I was Ginsberg
Writing Howl
With the angel-headed hipsters
Listening to jazz

Nineteen years old
Wearing Nike sneakers
Wishing I was Dylan
Writing songs
Wearing boots of Spanish leather
Smoking cigarettes

Nineteen years old
Waiting on the weekend
Wishing I was Holden
Leaving this
For the streets of New York City
Watching carousels

Nineteen years old
Cincinnati suburbs
Wishing I was Lincoln
Freeing slaves
Saying we will live forever
Or die by suicide

Nineteen years old
All my friends around me
Wishing I was Charlie
Writing letters
Sticking my head out in the tunnel
Feeling Infinite

Nineteen years old
Standing in a city
Wishing I was Vernon
In a Cabin
Writing thick falsetto poems
Come on skinny love

Nineteen years old
Healthy, Happy, Living
Wishing I was Treplev
Shooting seagulls
And living unrequited
Six feet under ground

Favorite Quote:
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
- Maya Angelou, Still I Rise

Nothing ends
Nothing ever ends
- Dr. Manhattan, Watchmen

Sometimes I find myself crying because I just want to be a little more interesting.
