I Need Something, Anything

Just another poem about the struggles of life.

I Need Something, Anything
The Odyssey Online

I wait for something to come to me

But I am always left with nothing

There is nothing more I want than to be able to write as I once did

To express myself in ways that were

t h e r a p e u t I c

c h a l l e n g i n g

s a t i s f y i n g

There is nothing more I want than to have my voice

[To speak my mind

To stand up for the things I once did

To provide an outlet]

An escape

Just something.

Just ANYTHING to get these troubling, dark thoughts

Out of my [h e a d]

And onto that paper to relieve the stress

the pain

the suffering

That no one sees

I just need that spark, that will, that drive

Can you relate?

Can you honestly look me in the eye and say that you understand?

I wish you could

I wish you could feel the things I do and experience every small thought that I think

Wouldn’t that make life easier?

No, it would make it worse.

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
