"URBAN" (Buildings, Traffic, Graffiti, Signs, People,...)
Street performers... that has got to be the tallest
uni-cycle I have ever seen!
#3~ A Poem - this poem was written for a contest.. we were asked to read a poem called "Did Not" and then were asked to write our own poem on what the one we read made us think of..
Not US!! NO WAY!
the silvery shivers were something new
I hoped and wondered if you felt it too
there were so many words I wanted to say
and then I heard.. Not US! NO WAY!
you kissed my lips and held my hand
I wanted to claim you and move on with my plan
I prayed "I love you" is what you would say
but instead you uttered Not US! NO WAY!
be my best friend you asked with a smile
never seeing my evil plot to beguile
and make a trip up the aisle some day
as everyone screams NOT THEM! NO WAY!
