a lifetime ago...

did it mean nothing?


i have been used, lied to, and abandoned, yet i still look for her emails, wonder if it's her when the phone rings, and do a doubletake whenever a little red car comes down the street. i go over everything that has happened every day, looking for a way to believe that i wasn't used, lied to, or abandoned. i can't find it. then i see this picture. the truth behind this image is what she ran from, what she is hiding from, what she has damaged so badly that i don't believe it can survive.

no need to respond, you have all been kind, eloquent, perceptive, and helpful in response to previous posts.

the wonderful thing about tucson is that whenever i feel down
i can look up at the mountains or sky...

...and know that everything is good.

i don't have the patience i used to have for bullshit. if someone isn't straight with me i am much more likely to write them off. if someone does something i don't like, i am much more likely to tell them right away. i don't know that this is altogether good.

Right and Wrong

Stop everything
I think I hear the President
The Pied Piper of the TV screen
Is gonna make it simple
And he's got it all mapped out
And illustrated with cartoons
Too hard for clever folks to understand
They're more used to words like:
Ideology . . .
They're not talkin' 'bout right and left
They're talkin' 'bout

Right and wrong - do you know the difference
Right and wrong - do you know the difference
'Tween the right and the left and the east and the west
What you know and the things that you'll never see

So what ya think
You like the Yankees or the Mets this year
And what about this latest war of words
And what about the Commies
I saw the news last night
All illustrated with cartoons
So when they come with that opinion poll
They better not use words like
Ideology . . .
Or try to tell me 'bout the issues
Ideology . . .
Whose side are you on
We're talkin' 'bout

Right and wrong - do you know the difference
Right and wrong - do you know the difference
'Tween the right and the left and the east and the west
What you know and the things that you'll never see

Where are we?

Right and wrong - do you know the difference
Right and wrong - do you know the difference
'Tween the right and the left and the east and the west
What you know and the things that you'll never see
