Poetry On Odyssey: An Ode To My Car Chapstick

The summer took you from me, and you will be dearly missed.

Poetry On Odyssey: An Ode To My Car Chapstick

To my dear car chapstick

All melted to goo.

The summer took you too soon

I will forever miss you.

My lips feel so dry and rough

Now, that you are gone.

I tried to save you, I swear,

With my maximum AC on.

But you had already turned to mush

Within my car's cup holder.

I wish we could have grown together

As we both got older and older.

But we didn't get that chance

To reach your tube's end.

But then again I never have been able to do that.

Cause it is just too damn hard, my friend.

I have lost too many chapsticks.

Your loss being the most gruesome.

But at least this time it isn't my fault

As it is when I just lose em'.

But the moral of the story is

That you were trapped in my car's confines.

And I'm sorry I could not rescue you

From the harsh summer sunshine.

And I do not want to replace you.

Because your memory still haunts me.

Not to mention, it would melt too.

Summer is meant to be car-chapstick-free :(

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
