Favorite Quote:
"The only way to have a friend is to be one."

Don't know how I got here,

Cookie and Cream ecstasy stemming

From the unknow.I suspect

It to be nothing more than

Wanting to be alone.


The other day, I forgot:

A birthday, a friend, a time,

A beat, a feeling, a colour.

It is a funny concept-your

Memories stretching to the 

Seams. Dreams of poodle-

Shaped clouds, airplanes and

Blue skies are Somethings That

I Used To Know.


In place of them came

The grass, unable to disguise

The Doubt.

"You sure?"


"You sure?"

"I guess"

"You sure?"

"I could"

"You can't"

"Yes I can't"

Couldn't multiply three 

Digit numbers, now it

Is somewhat graver.

The author's comments:

This is my first poem ever. I always write in prose and I decided to try my hand at poetry. Written in free verse, the poem higlights my fear of The Doubt.
