Just following suit!

Well, I'm not entirely sure why I'm writing at the moment, because I know that none of the people that are reading this are going to have the slightest clue about whats going on in my life, but I just cant seem to wipe this grin off my face, and need an outlet for all this business thats bubblin' up inside my mind.

It really is crazy how things can change so quickly... A flick of the wrist, a wink, a first kiss with a new friend... Just a week ago I had the chance to spend some time with a girl who over the last few days has become a dear friend of mine. Turns out she has quite a bit of spunk, and can actually dish it back when I'm teasing her. Last night we got to spend an evening in Salt Lake City and I don't think I've ever enjoyed myself so much - the conversation quite literally never stopped; and its not just stupid small talk either! We're not forced to resort to the pointless chatter of movies and youtube videos - its genuine conversation about life goals, family, and friends. Man, re-reading this, it just sounds like complete garbage - the eloquence seems to be stuck behind the foggy veil of sleep, seeing as I'm going on my third night just not sleeping this week - I've just been too excited to see what the next day brings, and what else I'll get to learn about her.

Granted, every shining day has its distant raincloud. I'm still trying to figure out exactly what I'm supposed to do now. Proceeding forward isn't much of an option at the moment, but I sure as heck don't want to move backwards - that'd just be outright lame.

Another day has come an gone, but deep inside its breaking dawn
This girl, my friend, fights every day
with pain and ache, and a recent break.
Yet here I am, my mind just ablaze, searching and screaming for just one more day.
I pull her, she pushes, she pulls me, I fall,
it makes me just wonder why try that next call.
The direction she chooses, its up in the air,
but let me just tell you, I pray its not me who loses
A dear friend, fond memories, I just can't wipe the smile
away from my mouth - its been just a short while -
she left me alone, to think and to ponder,
which led me to here, where my hands and mind wander,
and you all got stuck just reading this nonsense
while I piece it together and try to stay conscious
because after seven long days of not sleeping, just dreaming
I got that first kiss, -now I'm writing and screaming -

I care for that girl, who's just only a friend.
But each time that I'm with her, I don't want it to end.

HAH! Yeah, I'm sorry, thats really sappy, but thats just what I've got runnin around in my head and that seemed like the best way to get the point across! Wahoo for a first shot at poetry... am I right? Well the time has come for me to yet again throw on the suit for another fun-filled day of 5-6 hours of church - yeah baby!

Happy New Years to everyone, and I guess I'll finish the story of this girl in another six months!
