“Unrequited”
written on 4/4/09

i just laugh as i flip through the dictionary
your definition of friendship falls under acquaintance in my book
you said so many kind things before you kicked me to the street
but now i question everything based on your apathy

you say you want to be friends
but your words don’t match your actions
’cause i only hear an echo
instead of an answer when i speak

you dislike my depression
but what did you expect
why must i always be a beacon
for you to seek me out

you expect for me to rebound as if nothing ever happened
but sometimes rebuilding
is easier when you’re not alone

you wonder why i’m still down
not sure why it’s so hard to see
the connection that once meant everything to me
has become a friendship that’s a one-way street

“22”
written on 9/13/06

the future is so uncertain
there are no roadsigns at this fork in the road
there are no u-turns to the past I know so well
can’t I just pull over and get my bearings for a while?

i thought I had it all figured out
they said if I had a college degree
that is all I would need
but now I’m driving alone in this car meant for two
and I’m just grinding my gears
as I can’t figure out whether or not to lay off the brake
as I look for another route

the billboards are only advertising
the dead-end jobs I have been through
and the signs on the side of the road aren’t pointing to any location I haven’t already been to
and with all the weight of of this moment I am not sure how to keep this engine from stalling

from blown out tires to broken glass
i’m sure you all know what it’s like to feel stranded
trying my best to avoid the circuits
that only spin me around
show me the right interstate where I can fly free
