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


She’s the one
who’s gonna save the world,
who’s gonna save you, boy,
from whatever ails you.
A multi-symptom drug
to make sure you don’t get too addicted
to the poetic upper of being
down.

She’s the one who swears
to inaugurate her beach house
with banana pancakes and sleeps all day
on off-white sheets
held in a pair of warm arms
or curled up by herself
(She likes to believe she could die alone
and happy.)

Please understand,
she would love to make you her world,
but fears another apocalypse,
even though she knows she’d survive
with stronger wings than before.
Please understand,
she would love to love you forever,
but forever always seems to define itself differently
than she’d like,
so make no promises, and waste
all the time you have
together.

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.

You are very astute - enough so to have put to words exactly what I'm sure many people feel all at once. I loved the part about forever not defining itself the way we want it to. And the importance of not making promises. Promises are hard to stomach when you can't believe in forever. I've been there. Very nice job.

Just another casualty.
It's sad but true.
And even dead I'm still ahead

Really good!
