Astrology"By far, the fire signs are the most confrontational. If you piss off an Aries, they'll run you over in their truck. A Leo won't run you over, but only because they're distracted with looking for a bigger truck. A Sagittarius will run you over with a vespa because they think it's cool."Astrology7 years ago in Scraps More Like This

Remembrance Day PoemIn Flanders Fields, the poppies blow.Remembrance Day Poem9 years ago in Scraps More Like This
I wonder if the war vets know
The peace and freedom they battled for
Is just to be destroyed once more.
Red and black felt flowers hold
A secret power left untold.
Dismantled by school kids each November
They stick each other with pins and don't stop to remember.
The Dear Job LetterDear Job,The Dear Job Letter6 years ago in Scraps More Like This
This isn't working out between us. It's not that you're not wonderful; I just can't see me staying with you for the rest of my life.
Each day I go to you faithfully, but every time, I've been dreaming of another. This may be hard to hear, but every time I do you, it's been with false enthusiasm. I am indeed the sort of person who might be married to her work, but I can't commit to you in particular. It's not me; it's you.
Although I am grateful to have you through these tough times, please understand that this isn't permanent. You were not my first. You will not be my last. Although I do appreciate and even enjoy the stability of having you in my life, if another opportunity came along I wouldn't hesitate.
Yours (but not forever),

girl lost; the light's gone out and
she can't find her way.
He's just a lonely
boy broken; chipped but once yet
he'll never be whole.
You can't see in the
dark and broken things can't be
put back together.
