"You know you’re a writer if your friend tells you a heartbreaking story and your first reaction is – wow, that would make an incredible plot for a novel. You know you’re a smart writer if you manage to keep that reaction to yourself."

It's late at night
So late
And in the light of my cracked laptop screen
I see your face.
(Blink it away, it's just a face.)
I try to sleep
close my heavy eyes to the beat of my heart
But I feel your breath
Hear your laugh in my loud AC
(So I
wake up, turn on the TV)
And the boy on the screen
he looks just like you
going through life, playing with girls so I
(Turn off the TV)
Put on my iPod and there's
Singing about how in love she is
I forgot that we used to be like that.
Are there a million miles
Between us now?
I curl up
Hug my pillow close because
For the time being
That pillow
Is all
I have.
