I unearthed a poem that I posted back in 2006. This poem was written by Jorge Luis Borges (or is it Veronica Shoffstall? but definitely not me) and it needs to be put back here. Just the poem though, I’m not including the whole cringe-worthy post. I can make a new cringe worthy one below. 😆

I went through a phase of doing things on Facebook so that my ex could see that I was having fun.
Living life for an imagined reaction of someone who used to make me feel like the sun is the most messed up thing I’ve ever done.

I’m not a big fan of your new hairstyle. Your hair is too thick, and I liked your Asian hairstyle better. Nonetheless, you’ve always had beautiful hair so I stroked a section …
He was new in town. No, wait. He’s new to the country. He’s a student who had gone to one of his best buddies’ country for the summer. She was a geek who knew one of his best buddies.

He never thought he’d cross paths with her. She …
I’ve only admired you from afar. For so long I have kept the feelings deep within the recesses of my heart, and at the back of my mind. I know I can only admire you like I would a star. And I admire you for your eloquence, your intelligence, your humor, your wit. And I admire you for how you make me smile, how you seduce me, and how you …
Tears were threatening to fall when suddenly I felt myself float up from the floor. I blinked and realized someone from the stage had just grabbed my arm and has pulled me up. Before I could utter a protest, I found myself staring into his blue eyes. He started singing to me and I was lulled to complete silence by his voice.
