    In the mind of a dog with Throw the Damn Ball, from @PlumeBooks

    Surely, dogs have thoughts. And what a range of thoughts they have.

    From the philosophical:

    ┬áDo I look like I’ve been caught
    Deep in thought and with emotion fraught?
    As if some distant land I’ve charted?
    Don’t be fooled. It’s just that I’ve farted.

    To the intense:

    Rhyming is for cats,
    with their tiny, tiny lips
    and pretentious little way of nibbling their food.
    When you drop them,
    they always land on their feet,
    which is tedious, like knowing that at the end of the line
    you’re always going to get a rhyme.
    You want your poem to rhyme?
    I have one word for you:

    Back to the philosophical:

    From up here I can see
    All the places I like to pee.
    Thank you.

    Past (Love) Future (Love)

    “If I am a reflection of him
    Then I must be fly

    His love keeps me mesmerized
    While riding the waves of cloud 9
    Continuously on a high
    If I close my eyes
    I can still feel his fingers gently tracing the curve of my spine
    As he kisses the nape of my neck
    While our lips connect
    And tongues tie”

    This is from my girl Pauleanna‘s collection of poety and freestyle. Check out her blog here.

    There is this guy. Isn’t there always? But this one is different and he’s been on my mind for a minute. A part of me has instant flash backs to ‘He’s Just Not that Into You’ and a part of me still yearns for a future with him. Sometimes, people are hard to read. I know a lot of you would disagree and say, if he likes you, he’d be with you. But I think it’s more complicated than that. Especially when you have a tendency to magnify the ‘what ifs’ and lose sight of what is. How many chances do you give a person? How long do you keep that window of opportunity open? To what extent are games necessary to GET him? The more I am writing this post the more apparent it is to me that I should just let it go. My friend Valentine has on his profile: “I left the love of my life for the love of MY life.” I keep thinking about that and wonder if for some reason at this point in my life I am suppose to be single. You can make choices easier that way I guess when you just have to worry about one. This is going to me my last 3 months in Toronto. I wonder how what lies ahead for me compares to what lies within.
