If And When

If and
when
you decide
to leave
me, please
dictate
what else
you
may require
of me as
I pack
your bags.

Also,
if and
when you
decide
to lay next
to me
out of pity
or shame,
please
make room
for my ego,
foresight,
and wisdom
to ruffle
the sheets.

Lastly,
if and
when you
decide
to love
me like
I want, make
sure
you take
the
road
less traveled
since
I’ll be
quietly
making strides
like
Zeus did
for Aphrodite.

Like The Snowfall

In a
warm
room,
the sun
shifts
its neck
into
a more
comfortable
position.
Just
like the
time
it snowed
for
the sake of
showing
the
world its
pace.
White
sheets
layering each
street
crack
like a
dove-filled
blanket. The
sky
resembles
a yesteryear
long
gone, and
my eyes
skirt
and dash
around the
kamikaze
flakes,
as they
jump
to
their deaths
without
even
a whisper.
Like the
snowfall,
we’re
angels in
waiting,
and
if
you stand
too
tall, you’ll
indeed
miss the
most
important
call.

Like A Hole In The Head

…some say it’s for the birds.

I say it’s for the suckers who believe life is not rigid enough.

As it seems, my life is consumed with school.

I mean, and no offense to the characters that are truly blessed in this arena, this lifestyle is really for the birds. In every sense of being a sound and yes, proud graduate student, I’m just not completely aligned in the “self-teaching” aspects of the pr0gram.

Now, in a modern day, most people would be able to adjust to the ever-so-demanding challenges of college life, but when you have to teach yourself the material from scratch as if a PhD. professor with myriad books in his name teaching a 2-hour class with 20 other students just didn’t happen…well, I suppose you can imagine the frustration. I’m happy in every way except this way. But then again, who am I?

The other day, I was walking down the street and suddenly realized that my phone was quietly laying on a table at home. In this moment, the sudden bright sky became dark and gloomy like a scene from a Lord of the Rings trilogy. So, without two shakes of a pig’s tail, I scuttled myself back to the house to pick up the phone. Now, as they say in Hollywood, the show was allowed to go on. As it turned out, I didn’t even need the phone. The honest moral of this story is simply this:

Even when you think you need something to be attached to you, you just may not need it. But just in case, you should get it anyway.

Just like tuition, books, and of course, a class that seems to neither fit here nor there.

Validity

When
you
dance,
you
provided
for
me the
validity
in
why and
how
I take
steps
closer
and closer
to be
next
to
you.

Often,
when
you
speak
in your
native
language,
I am
reminded
once
again
how important
God’s
sixth
day was.

Lastly,
when
you gaze
into
the stars,
I am
dumbfounded
as
to why
the world
hasn’t
claimed
you
for
itself.

I’m
staring
through
you
to
understand
me.
