Poetry: What Love Is

IM000292.JPGSorry for the late post, y’all….as Tobias hypothesized, yesterday was full of work (night shift sucks), grading papers, proctoring exams, and research. So I completely forgot to write my post. To make up for it, I’m going to share a bit of poetry with you. I wrote this in my poetry seminar earlier this semester. Enjoy!

What Love Is

Love is not thoughtless,

taking the bullet meant for him,

expiring in an easy out,

with a shallow “I love…”

causing a romantic stain like the blood on his shirt

for the rest of his days.

 

Love is deliberate,

crushing the prescription pills,

consciously choosing torturous existence

on a day when just breathing is hell,

because even your agonized brain knows

there would be no kiss of peace

for the walking dead man behind your coffin.

Of Illness and Homework

What do you mean, summer is 3 months away? 😦

Well….I was going to have a really epic and awesome post for you today. However, I have been swamped with homework (28 credits + this is my last semester + thesis = very exhausted Sel), and on top of that, I’ve had a massive migraine all day. So, I don’t really have anything for you today. I promise to have an extra-amazing post next week, though. In the meantime, enjoy these pictures of epic things.
