Today I fight
Once again
I will win
At all costs

I'm at the top
The best soldier
I have all the awards
Nobody could beat me

Yet I must continue
Learning at this institute
Why won't this girl
Leave me alone?

Soon she was my "friend"
Always by my side
I don't want her companionship
I'm a lone warrior

Today I beat up some nerd
I was sent to be disciplined
I'm sent to detention
And the girl sighs

She soon finds another
A boy more her speed
I hope she'll abandon me
But she drags me in too

This boy has another friend
The nerd I attacked
We naturally resent one another
This "friendship" can't possibly work

Yet he holds us all together
Somehow we're all allies
As we continue through
I still remain a soldier

Today I'll still fight
I'll always win
I take no prisoners
Thousands die in my wake

One day we're on a battleground
Me and my "friends" are attacked
And for once in my life
I'm frozen in fear

I don't know how to fight
Who am I even kidding?
I'm just as much of a nerd
As the kids I bully

The town heroine rescues us
But not before I make myself
Into a gross sobbing mess
I'm no warrior

In my ensuing despair
I find I can maneuver
Circuitry to my will
No wonder I always won

This makes me feel worse
Even more of a failure
I can't fight, I don't have courage
I'm a failure

I try to end it all, but she's there
She was always there
She extends her hand
And I take it for once

The false warrior
And the granola girl
Who could've predicted
We'd become friends?

On The Death Of A Cat
I pull a cookbook from its shelf, right next to the ceramic bowls, flip through the batter-stained pages.   His orange and white hairs still cling to my sweatshirt, a touch of blood smeared across the collar.   At last, I find the recipe I was searching for. Peanut butter cookies.  My finger traces down the list of ingredients: two and one fourth cups all-purpose flour, one teaspoon baking soda, two eggs.

Ghost
Once upon a time, I lost my heart, stolen by a thief who distracted me in the dark with sweet lies and opened buttons. I drifted, insubstantial, until I found my heart again, abandoned beside a country road. I picked it up and put it in my pocket, took it home, washed it gently in warm water and No More Tears shampoo, and put it back where it belonged. It hurt at first, its pounding loud, working furiously to infuse pale limbs with rushing blood, alive, but the pain passed and I smiled in the afternoon sun. Then you came. And my poor heart, pilfered once more, is lost again. But this time, as

My Life In a Nutshell
My Life In a Nutshell I (That's just another word for me.) I tried to reason with myself today. I lost. Reason won. I didn't give you a fair chance to run before you fell in love with me. By the way, why did you fall in love with me? Or did you trip over the last heart you broke and land in my arms? I saw the truth today. It wasn't pretty. Ditto. Yesterday I had a dream. You lost me. I found me. The world use to look so dim. Oh wait, there's the light switch. Damn, the light just burned out! The future looks so bright. No wait, that's just car headlights. I think I died and went to... Ah crap! Not you again. Weren't you

I'm bad at first-person shooters.

Actually, I haven't really played any first-person shooters, but I'd probably be bad at it.
