smashed into a wall and the engine keeps screaming

two weeks left of school . . .
another semester down the drain
empty bottles littered with promises
memories hide behind holiday facades
every year more become lost
i enjoyed the cold in my youth
bitter brittle against my red nose
cutting wind through jean jacket
now it lets me remember
i despise this time of year

    that brings back memories… standing outside waiting for the bus with the pin pricks on my cheeks as the cold air bites down hard

  5. dramke says:

    I hate this time of year, too. I’d ask how you are, but then I’m thinking this post might be a clue.

    I dont know whether I should be grateful or upset.

    Did that all start because i said you made good veggie lasagna in my journal? Wow. I actually like the cold. I’m a wee bitty person and getting bundled up makes me feel adult-sized. But I hope your end-of-semester madness works itself out. I am trudging through Clai’s paper.

    Mary and i had a debate on the merits of vegetarianism that went straight through thanksgiving, even being brought up during thanksgiving… then Trey had told me he made a vegetarian lasagnia… finally i was talking to Mary about considering a more veggie centered diet… then concluded that i wanted to taste his veggie concoction but i’d hate for him to waste the money in creating a dish i might not enjoy, so i asked for the recipe for Mary.
