Oops, I Got "Too Busy" To Post Anything for Several Months....

Updated: Apr 20




... so here's a poem for consolation and to justify my spending money on a domain.


Also, be on the lookout for a post (it's in the works) about what I've learned in my recent chats with authors Ryan North and S.J. Kincaid (!!!!)


And another post (also in the works) about my travels to Tybee Island and what that taught me about protecting the environment (spoilers: you might want to visit Tybee now, because it's going to be underwater in a couple of years).


Enjoy your consolation poem :)


Hey, Future


I’ve never been kissed,

for that’s a promise I can’t keep

I was told my first kiss

mattered more than anything,

Now, future, I can’t sleep -

thinking of you


I am hesitant and

reticent around

anyone who might recognize the sound

of isolation in my voice

I am shaking and afraid of

any plans you might have made

that don’t align

with mine


Future, I don’t know who you are

But I hope I’ll meet you soon

Cause I feel like time’s not on my side

Everything’s bound to fall through

Hey, future


There’s so much I’ve never done

And any life might get cut short

Nothing’s ever guaranteed

So don’t mind me

when I freeze

too scared to take this heart of my chest

because I might start to bleed

So don’t mind me when I can’t sell you my soul for free

I just wanna fall in love a couple dozen times

I just wanna try everything I’ve never tried

And when the sun comes up and all my feelings have run dry

I’ll find the one I wanna love the rest of my life

I wanna love someone for all of my life


I’ve never held hands

Underneath a star-bright sky

I was too scared I’d mess things up

Too scared and I never even tried,


Now I’m thinking I might die

Before I meet you,

Hey future


I don’t know who you are

But I hope I’ll meet you soon

Cause I feel like time’s not on my side

And I hope you come through,

I hope you’re everything I’ve hoped from you,

Hey future


I wanna fall in love a couple dozen times

I just wanna try everything I’ve never tried

And when the sun comes up and all my feelings have run dry

I’ll find the one I want to love for the rest of my life


Hey, future, where are you?

Future, won’t you come here soon?

You just keep on taking your sweet time.


Hey, future, hurry soon,

I’ve been waiting

I’ve been patient

But I don’t know how long I can be kind.
