On Faithfulness

Simple Thoughts

"Don't get so frustrated, 

it's only a book, 

or a few words

that you threw,


hoping they might stick.

Sound familiar?


especially if you've stuck with it.


Life can be funny like that,

in fact, it is,

that the same things

seem to alwaus happen


to people who may wish

it wasn't the case;

assuming it's negative.

Once you give it a second


to process,

it's wild to think

the same exact advice

you give


is the opposite

of how you live

your own life.

Some advice...


Twice now I've had to step in.

To stop the golden desires

of sundrops on skin,



when there has already been seeds sown,

a tree has been growing,

and now there's doubt,

the axe lays on its side


nearby. Nearly every time,

it can hurt to cry,

but not if infidelity

is the reason why. At least,


let's hope 

that's not the case.

I'd hate to see the fallout,

it'd be all over the place."

Nice Guy, Finished Last

Ken Squires

I've always been the nice guy.
People used as the door mat in life.
Walking all over, while leaving me behind.
Always doing what I think others should do.
Always trying to be what others should be.
Holding the doors, letting everyone go first.
Being told I'm not right for this job.
While dying a little inside.
Smiling through everything as if nothing was wrong.
Life continues to pass me by, even on this day.
Always over hear people say "oh that's so nice of you"
But always feeling as if they're glad they didn't have to do what I just did.

When I don't do those things.
You talk shit about me to your friends.
As I'd be the psycho in the corner.
The one that nobody chooses to talk to.
But you seem to have me figured out.

As I continue to be the nice guy who finished last.
I'm also that guy who the world turns around and blasts.

I’m getting tired of waiting
I know you are there
But I feel so used
There has been no contact
No reaching out from you
Nothing at all from you
Even though I’ve tried
To get a hold of you
I’ve sent you letters
And I’ve tried to get you messages
It’s been three months
With no word from you
I know I used the word
But I never thought
That I’d wait for this long
Just to hear from you
Three fucking months
No guy I’ve ever dated
Made me wait
For this long
And now I’m getting to the point
Where best friend
Or no best friend
I thought we could make this work
The long distance
Well we could
If that were the only issue
I don’t know what to think
Or feel
You are about to draw yourself
Outta my life
This time I am serious
When this month-and-a-half
Are done
You may as well put a line through my name
Because I am done

I have been waiting for four months and im sick and tired of waiting. Never before have I waited on a man for one day, let alone three f***ing months. Im tired of waiting.
