Poetry On Odyssey: I Don't Deserve Her

No matter what, she would never want to be with me again.

I don't deserve her.

the way she shows affection to those she cares for

the way blood gradually rushes to her cheeks when she gets frustrated

the way her stubbornness become deadly attractive

the way she stands out in a crowd of ordinary

they are all burned into my retinas

in a way that is nothing less than beautiful

once upon a time or not too long ago

it was us against the world

but now I'm left alone to fight my own battles

swaying sweating bodies from side to side

blasting obnoxious music from dusk to dawn

drowning myself in bottles that numb reality

or make me feel a little less miserable

the longing for her gets worse as the night approaches

reckless phone calls to her despite having this peace agreement

I should have known from the start that once she was gone

it would be for life and no matter what

she would never want to be with me again

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
