Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
- Maya Angelou, Still I Rise

Nothing ends
Nothing ever ends
- Dr. Manhattan, Watchmen

My salvation came in the form of the last bus home in the pouring rain.

I had a panic attack today
I had just gotten off the wrong bus to nowhere
it was ten at night
it was cold enough to be snowing
my phone was dead
I hadn't eaten since 1
and I had one wrinkled dollar left in my wallet

I was going over all the different things I could've done
to avoid this situation
and kicking myself for not being more prepared
or more responsible
or whatever
a divine slap across my frost bitten face
and this is the part I'm almost embarrassed to share
because its just so cheesy
but what the hell
I like cheese

Life is a series of missed connections
And endless bus rides
You need to enjoy it
No matter how tedious or nerve-wracking
Take solace in knowing
That you don't have to drive in traffic

Isn't it ironic? We ignore the ones who adore us, adore the ones who ignore us, love the ones who hurt us, and hurt the ones that love us.

It's one of those random poems that completely pulls you in.
