Thunderstorms are beautiful...

the wind sounds first, a low bass note rumbles
followed by high piccolo as it trails
between the branches. qued, I dim the lights.
now a mourning cello warns of the din
about to bombard my little room. I
jump to greet a flash of light, surprised.
a moment's pause for proper syncopation
yields expectedly the rumble of the
bass drum. raindrops patter against my screen:
the only barrier between me and
this wet symphony. only from the safe
haven of my room can I observe it
without fearing the wrath of nature's score.

Eerie

Just last night I was thinking to myself. It went something like this - "Self, you haven't seen crookedsmile in awhile on Oasis." And then I paused to consider this and replied, "Hey you're right Wonder how she's doing."

And here you are. Sweet. I agree with Jake. Nice metaphor. :)

Aw. Sorry I don't ever go on

Aw. Sorry I don't ever go on hardly. I can't help it...life is catching up with me. As much as I'd love to spend time here, I'd rather live my "youth" to the fullest. Plus, it's exam time for me. And I have to work, and play guitar, and piano, and go to school, and exercise, and hang out with friends and....you get the picture. ;)

Life

I really do need to get a life. Live your "youth" to the fullest! It only gets worse. Ok, how pessimistic is that? Anyway, have fun doing all your activities. :) Just letting you know that I noticed your absence.

Lol. I plan on it, don't worry. I can't wait to grow up! Are you kidding me? Worse? No way. Nothing is ever bad. AT least, not in my world.

Cynicism

Ah my bitter cynicism and pessimism arose once again. Nah, it should be good. Especially in your world. :)

Especially in my world eh? ...Can't argue with that...I'm so happy most of the time it's kinda scary.
