John and Jane.John and Jane.10 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
John's first name was Kalia, but his parents were sensible parents so they told him that he could go by his middle name, John, if he wanted to. John liked trousers and girls, but since trousers were easier to woo John mostly bought trousers instead of fancy dinners.

John thought Jane looked good in clothing in general, but never told her so. John just stared at Jane in class, with nothing much to say in his mind or his mouth.

When she's so far away?
Home to my sister, home to my house.
Slowing then speeding
People are leaving
For people, for places…
These days are races.
Fireworks chasing, rain sparkled racing
Out to the sky to flash bright and die.
Hopefully leave some great stars in the sky.
An emotion alluded, a temptation concluded
A relation unscrewed, and…
Just now, a vision
Of a popstar for life,
Painting through formulaic machines,
And it doesn't seem like he's got anything at all.
Nothing inside him
We might as well buy them –
They make me feel good.
But then one day a crash—
