Weight This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

I used to think
that she loved
me.

I had an obsession with this girl,
I wanted to be with her
forever
and I would stand in my yard
for hours, pacing
back and forth
and thinking about her.

I began to see the idiocy of my
friends,
and a great love
that resonated
deeply within
me,
to a point beyond
words,
yet coming from
words.

And though I am human,
it felt like others
weren't quite as
human.

...And now
I am wandering,
lost
and
confused.

There is a dark red liquid
coming from the walls
and a man
wearing a plain black suit
sitting up in bed,
finally realizing
his life was
a mistake.

Not quite sure I understood it, but I like it. Somehow, it's really powerful. You can bet I'll be re-reading this sometime soon :)
