New Poems...not sad ones either!

This is a poem that I wrote recently about how I feel. It is called Closer than I am. It is a pretty good poem. Its not sad like a lot of my other poems. It is sad in a sense because it talks about how hard the distance can be when there is someone you care about.

The second poem is called Willingly. It is about how a selfish person's life changes when the right person comes into it. I like it.

Life is still hard sometimes but there are the moments that make it totally worth it. It is the little things that make a difference. A text message, a phone call, a subtle touch, a look. They make the big things smaller. Check out them poems and let me know whatcha think!

I have been lazy. yawn...

Hello my friends. I feel sad that some of you regularly visit my blog to see what is new happening in my life and when you come you have nothing to read. I should do better but I just don’t make the time to do it. So for that I apologize.

Since my last post 2 MONTHS AGO…dang, so much had happened. I met a girl. Actually that is about it. And you won’t hear me complain about it.

I didn’t really meet her I’ve known her for quite some time. To make a long story short…I knew her at school and now we have been seeing more of each other. She lives in Portland so its not the easiest thing to do…or the cheapest, but it has been worth it. I don’t know what is supposed to happen or what is going to happen but we are enjoying finding out. I’ve been up to Portland and she came to California when I was back visiting home. Both trips have been fantastic. I can enough good things about her. I’m headed back out there this weekend and then she’s scheduled to come to AZ in a couple of weeks. Her name is Nicole and she is beautiful…all the way to her guts.

Like I said, I went home for 5 days in October to get away. I had a great time. My sister Kara was there with her 2 kiddies. It’s always good to be with family. I love mine.

I don’t have anything deep to talk about at the moment. Tuesday is for voting. I don’t like politics. Sure I have said I was going to run for President but the state of politics to me is totally lame right now. Why can’t normal people run?

This Dashboard Confessional album, Dusk and Summer, is awesome. I can’t enough of it. It is always on. I thought I would get bored of it after listening to it 100 times but I haven’t. You should check it out.

I have written some new poems but I am still working on them before I publish them to the web. I’ll let you know when they pop.

Things are going well for me. The relationship thing can be challenging at times, the waiting, the wondering…but it is good for me. It is making me a better man. I’ll try to do a better job. It’s not you its’ me. J
