About the Author: Page 18

I remember crying one night,

wanna forget,

 

Prayin', dreams of your kiss,

heartbroken,

 

Wishin' we were swayin',

want sleep,

 

You to stay mine rockin' your

favorite song,

 

No trust, always open, living

complicated,

 

Bodies slide together, stay

close,

 

Together forever

 

Athletes are some of the toughest people

 

Based upon the long hours spent in the gyms and weight rooms

 

Certain athletes are better than others naturally

 

Determined by the hours in the weight room anyone can truly be the best

 

Even though you aren't the biggest player, you still are able to fight

 

Fights athletes go through are big, that's what makes them the toughest

 

Softball

 

Swing, catch

 

Strike, run, out

 

Memories being made

 

Yellow

 

The grass is so green

 

 

The flowers are beautiful

 

 

I love all of the plants

 

Tom

 

Handsome, wealthy, hard working, champion

 

Husband of Gisele

 

Who loves onion rings and steak

 

Who thinks money can buy love and happiness, loved womem, felt that he was unstoppable

 

Brute of a man, many were scared of him, his money could get anything he wants

 

Married to Gisele, had one daughter

 

Who wanted everything to go his way and for be respected at all cost

 

Old money, lives in East Egg, Long Island

 

Buchanan

What is this strange sensation?

When I see you everything gets weird,

My blood pumps faster, my feet feel lighter,

I can't take my eyes off of you,

What is happeneing to me when you're around?

It's almost if you can make my world better by just being near me,

I don't understand this sensation,

Is something wrong with me or is everything falling right into place?

I can't tell if I'm scared to fall or if I want to drive right in,

This must be love.

 

Real good

 

Everywhere

 

Everyday

 

Sensational

 

Everlasting

 

Satisfaction

 

Something that taste so good

can be gone so quick

 

You try to savor the flavor, but you can’t

 

I regret eating so fast

 

Now I’m so full I cannot move

 

I don’t know what I’ll do later

 

Now that you're gone I’ll be hungry

 

Basketball is life

 

The sound of that ball dribbling

 

The thrill of the shot

 

Sweat dripping onto the court

 

The final buzzer, screaming

 

A lot goes through your head as a softball player

As the ball leaves the pitcher’s hand

Tossed to home plate

You hear the crack of the bat

You see the ball coming for you

The runner on first is leaving the bag while the batter does also

The ball hits the ground and comes straight to you

You field the ball and throw it to first

The runner is out

 

There was a playground

 

Every weekend there was a hoedown

 

All of the cowboys brought their best cow

 

But not one girl liked the smell

 

Why were they at a playground

 

The game is tied up

 

If I make the shot we win

 

The shot is up, swoosh

 

“This is not a goodbye, it’s the

 

beginning of a new chapter in

 

life.”

 

Food

 

Tasty, fulfilling

 

Eating, chewing, digesting

 

Hunger pains subside, a new energy is formed

 

Chomp, chew, smack

 

Full
