BETTY MOONSHINE
When I see a couple of kids
And guess he's fucking her and she's
Taking pills or wearing a diaphragm,
I know this is paradise

Everyone old has dreamed of all their lives--
Bonds and gestures pushed to one side
Like an outdated combine harvester,
And everyone young going down the long slide

To happiness, endlessly. I wonder if
Anyone looked at me, forty years back,
And thought, That'll be the life;
No God any more, or sweating in the dark

About hell and that, or having to hide
What you think of the priest. He
And his lot will all go down the long slide
Like free bloody birds.
And immediately

Rather than words comes the thought of high windows:
The sun-comprehending glass,
And beyond it, the deep blue air, that shows
Nothing, and is nowhere, and is endless.

i think i am your friend but i dont deserve to be. i think the only reason im still with you is because i have latched on like a leech, slowly sucking away your life. you probably should cut me off and burn me.

You say you're not worthy;
I'd have to say I agree.
I'm not worthy of you,
you're not worthy of me.
Which of us is deserving?
Look at the human race.
The planet at arm's length-
we don't deserve this place.

I love you Tim.

Added for sure. Any friend of Sarah's is at least a pseudo friend of mine.

wow, it's a good thing i got here on time. it just occured to me when i saw your comment in someone elses journal that i hadn't seen any of your posts for a while, so i guess i never added you. this has been remedied, and hopefully, you'll find it within yourself to forgive my stupidity.

Yeah, I keep remembering that I need to add you, but then continually a. forget or b. decide I’m too lazy to do it just yet. But no longer.
