Poetry On Odyssey: Unfaithful

Hurt and betrayal, in fooling me, you always prevail.

Poetry On Odyssey: Unfaithful

Your name tastes sour now when I say it,

And yes I fell in love, I have no shame to admit,

I loved the things you said to me, you always called me amazing,

But wait I'm confused, did you not know that I loved you like crazy?

Did you think of my smile when you made it your goal to see hers?

It probably wasn't too hard, you know how good you are with words,

Did you think of my soft little hands as you intertwined yours with somebody else's?

I thought we were together, you were mine, or was I just being selfish?

Did you think of my lips when you pressed yours against hers?

I remember now, saying "oh you can be friends with her, I don't care, sure"

Did you think of the smell of my shampoo as you ran your fingers through her hair?

You said you loved the sweet scent of it when it flew wildly in the air,

Did you think of the sound of my heartbeat when I held you on bad days?

While you held her in your arms that night you told me you couldn't stay,

Did you think of my giggle, you know, that "cute little sound?"

That day you said I looked great, then left later with the girl who gets around,

Did you think of the times you'd say "I love you," and my cheeks would turn red?

Did you think of my response "I love you too" as you laid her down on your bed?

Did you think about how excited I would get any chance I was given to see you?

As you had another girl pleased, laying underneath you?

Did you care to think of my reaction when I would find out about your lies?

Or were you too busy thinking about getting in between her thighs?

Did you care to think about my heart and how it would break?

Or did you just plan on saying, "sorry, I love you – it was a mistake,"

Did you care to think of your awful actions causing me emotional damage?

Or did you think I'd let you off easy, because for your love, you knew I was famished,

Did you care to think of the fact that I will never be able to trust another man?

Or were your thoughts too occupied with sexual desire, apparently you needed a helping hand,

Did you think of me at all?

When late at night she'd call?

Time after time you would go to her and stay there all night,

While I stayed home in tears, wondering what I did to make you not reply,

Did you think of me, your girlfriend, the one who gave you anything you wanted?

I guess not, I heard that girl talking about you, and believe me – she flaunted,

I guess everyone knew and saw it coming, besides me,

Silly, stupid me, I hoped for a while that you would just think,

Maybe I made our whole relationship something it wasn't in my head,

My mistake, I guess you could say I was misled,

I do recall you saying that you loved me,

But it obviously meant nothing to you, jokes on me, you're funny

E.E.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
