the calendar is slashed with bloody red
X's
i've waited too long for this
fateful day
i don't know why it's taken so long for me
to balance my
time
and juggle appointments to reach what i've
always wanted –
but it's here, the day is near
so why
have i forgotten what i
wished
for?

Life is so ironic as Alanis Morissette describes in "Ironic." I can relate to his poem on so many levels. Sometimes we work ourselves up so much for something so trivial and when the day arrives, we forget all about it. I love the "bloody red X's" imagery as well as the rest. Congrats, pimp, on the Editors' Choice. You're rocking like a boss!
