One part vodka.
Although you can substitute tequila.
2 parts crying over an ex.
Sometimes you can add self pity but it is not recommended.
A sprinkle of doubt and fear of the future.
The final ingredient is a splash of O.J.
If you follow all of these instructions you may be lucky enough to black out and forget the reason why you drank in the first place.

When you grow older
ache with pain

that you also have a mental
Except this time your soul

exciting and fun!
Now my mind is on the run,
am I with the right one?
You and I are out of sync
An old phone that can
no longer connect to
its home base
A relationship on the brink
A rotary phone
trying to make a connection.
You’re wearing a white shirt.
A plain white t-shirt that clings to your chest.
Your unibrow is starting to overgrow and

pulling out each imperfection.
He knows and I know
that we will take care of each other,
It has been a while since I write to you old friend,
I’ve had other things that needed to be tended to.
I use to confide in the way you understood me,
you listened so graciously.
The pens lay flat on the table gathering their dust,
I use to write with love and lust,
but now college has turned my iron mind to rust.
