They said, "We want you to stay"
It all means nothing
When the dishes are done

Never belong in one place
No matter how long
Your name is on the box

Compelling blackmail
Treatise under the bed
Shoes tied, hat on
Out the door like a
Hell-bat released

Nobody wants you to stay
Let them bicker
'Cause the dishes aren't done

Never remember the face
No matter which mirror
You use to shave

Tripping on sidewalk cracks
Stopping to scrape off
The gum and dead snails

Throw the stick at the neighbor's dog

They didn't want you to stay
It all means nothing
Unless the laundrey gets done

Never belong in one place
No matter how long
The bills come for you

Haven't forgotten the face
It always stares back
Solitary, confused
Probably gonna scrap this later. I'm just posting it so I won't lose it in the labyrinth of my computer's FS.

It's just a poem. Take deeper meaning if you want, but I'm not baring my soul or anything. God knows I know better than to do that anymore.

Okay, now I'm really gone.

I know it means nothing to you, but its the same thing with my family - that poem. Or is using the word family too strong? :sarcasm:

It isn't "nothing" exactly, it just isn't some strong expression of something 'mine'. Those are almost always bad ideas.

I'm sorry it's like that for you, though...

Why do say that, because you don't like the feedback?

Now that I think of it, I do plan to repair things..at least, thats my hope..I don't know whats on their agenda.. :shrug:

No... I don't share things about myself as easily as I sometimes pretend to, because for myriad reasons, I usually end up regretting it.

You trying on your own is better than indolently despairing. ...I think that came out wrong...my brain is broken.

I can't and won't combat that, because I have to agree, unfortunately.

No I get you. That is mostly what I have been doing, to be honest. I say I plan to make things better, but all I've really been doing is moping and complaining to people....like yourself....I'm done.

Yup.

That's the way a lot of big things can be, unfortunately...

Almost sounds like a poem of one of your characters....:O :)

I hadn't thought of that, but you have a good point. :) They tend to have sad or upsetting situations, don't they?

I think all our characters tend to reflect aspects of our lives, sometimes. :nod:

I'm glad mine isn't like most of theirs. ^^; Sometimes I think I'm too mean to them...

Yeah, I can appreciate that...I wouldn't want to go through some of the stuff I put my characters through...'course, I don't have some of their abilities either....

Excellent point. I wouldn't mind a few knocks on the head if I could do some of the things they do...
