    "One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for ALL." I bleed America. I breathe America. Did you hear me, Uncle Sam? I said, "I bleed, America. I breathe America." America scorns me-- an unrequited love since childhood. Hot dogs and popcorn, basebal...

    When we kiss its unpassionate. You never close your eyes. And when we're walking down the street your hands are 'occupied' One hand in your pocket, the other around my waist, if I'm lucky I must say. Most times your texting other girls yet you can't give me the time...
