EDIT 12/17/14: just made a few edits since I'll be submitting this poem as one of five pieces of poetry in my application for the Creative Writing major at my university I'd appreciate any new thoughts you have on this piece!
11/12/14 I'm back
......how long will it last? I don't know. *sigh* This semester is by far the hardest, busiest, most stressful and traumatic ones I've ever had - and that's taking into account my shitty high school years. I'm struggling to just keep from drowning. So yeah, sorry I've been so absent, but I'm also sorry because I can't promise anything better for a while... And that's all the energy I have to apologize
Oh yeah, the poem - not based on fact. haha.
