Reason To Live. (17-APRIL-2003)

  1. Last night I had a dream.
  2. I was yelling at the heavens
  3. In the middle of a thunderstorm.
  4. I was yelling at God
  5. “Prove to me you are their!”
  6. I yelled through the rain.
  7. “Prove Heaven, Hell, And Yourself to me!”
  8. …(silence)
  9. “Send an Angel from the heavens
  10. with all the reasons to live!”
  11. …(silence)
  12. Soon after the storm began to clear
  13. The air became quiet…
  14. And then you appeared.

For my efforts she never dated me and my writing teacher at the time decided that this was enough proof needed to throw me in advanced literature. I made sure not to write anything publicly in school again after that.  ORIGINAL (17-APRIL-2003)
