I ate one too many banana flavored moon pies today and I think I’m about to throw up my happiness.
Let good qualities be the flowers that grow from your faults.
Whenever I’m writing poetry I’m either like “FUCK YOU PUNCTUATION!” or “HELL YEAH, COMMAS AND SEMICOLONS EVERYWHERREEE!!!!”
Across this vast land of noise
I hope you can hear
My quiet murmurs
I’m wondering if I should have used Too $hort as one of my favorite artist for this paper and cite important lyrics exemplifying his rapping prowess from Shake That Monkey, Pull Them Panties Down and Blowjob Betty.
I need a freak, I really do
Light is more important than the lantern,
The poem more important than the notebook,
And the kiss more important than the lips.
My letters to you
Are greater and more important than both of us.
They are the only documents
Where people will discover
And my madness.

- I’ve lost all concept of time.
- Kool & The Gang told me that last night was my night, and everything was gonna be all right and I believed them (I’m so dumb).
- Someone should come over and sing Barry White songs in his deep, sensual voice and tell me they can’t get enough of my love.
- Seriously though, I have a lot of love, like, so much love…mad love!
- I’m eating cookies for breakfast ‘cause fuck eggs and cereal.
- Tuesday warrants no pants, so it shall be.
- On the real, fuck Tuesdays.
- Working only two days a week justifies my laziness and being in bed til 2 pm in my underwear.
