Poetry On Odyssey: If Only You Knew What Remains In The Dark Alleys

The sun doesn't shine over those who sin.

man in hood standing against brick wall in alleyway

If only you knew what remains in the dark alleys

My mind is a concrete wilderness of complications

A blocked entry soul

With grouted wooden floor tiles

And bemused wonderless affections roaming the air

Impotent to its spontaneous waterfall of color

An intoxicated sunflower plummets its petals into a meadow of incertitude

Unfulfilled with the mediocre day of light

Lingering for the sun to disappear under the horizon

Preparing to divulge ineptitude

I'm drowning in sleep

And I can't breathe

Because you're constantly reminding me of how you don't care

How the sun doesn't shine over those who sin

The earth is swallowing the last shining star


With a heartless chest

And a long afternoon of regret

I wanna love

Shout to the moon

And crack into the inner core of its spirit

Before the sun rises, and I'm exposed again

I wanna tell you that I love you

That you matter the most to me

And I will beg to you

Just so you realize that I'm not lying to you

I wanna sing and dance

Close my eyes

Surf into a crowd of strangers

And mosh until my knee caps bruise

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message.

Well, this school year has come to a close, and it's off to having fun in the sun. For college students, summer offers a few different options: get an internship somewhere AMAZING like NYC, India or somewhere else awesome, travel, stay in your college town or go home for the summer. Whatever the reasoning, many people do end up going home and living with their parents during the summer. Many things are different when you go home for the summer. After almost a whole year being an adult, it's time to return to your parent's home and follow rules that you threw to the wind the second you stepped on campus last fall. And you get to see all your old friends, the ones who came home anyway. You'll also see people you haven't talked to since you graduated that you were really okay with never seeing again. If you are going home for the summer, here are some things that will happen to you.
