It's My Birthday

I've painted myself in the corner of life

I couldn't have done better had I used a knife

It's my birthday Oh yeah it's my birthday,

 

I have a perpetual argument going in my head

Over a relationship that's long been dead

It's my birthday Oh yeah it's my birthday,

 

All my life I saw love on the silver screen

Thinking a lover's heart could never be mean

It's my birthday Oh yeah it's my birthday,

 

They always walk away so nice and clean

Feels like my body's floating in a river unseen

It's my birthday Oh yeah it's my birthday,

 

I know that God is somewhere out there

My plight as a human who really cares

It's my birthday Oh yeah it's my birthday,

 

The promises from my lover's lips

They're practically worthless is my tip

It's my birthday Oh Yeah it's my birthday,

I remember cake and candles as a kid

I created this monster that's what I did

It's my birthday Oh yeah it's my birthday,

 

For everything I've done will I be forgiven

It's just this lonely life that I've been livin

It's my birthday Oh yeah it's my birthday,

 

And when everything has come undone

It nearly has and I'm on the run

But It's my birthday Oh yeah It's my birthday,

 

And if you think this sounds like self pity

It's the hopelessness that makes me feel giddy

It's my birthday Oh yeah it's my birthday.

Foolish Monkey Come to think of it that would be sad never to have known love at all. I can't remember what philosopher said. "I would have rather had love and lost it than never had love at all," maybe it was an actress. Can't remember.

You thought I was kidding? I was not. If you want to meet someone who you can form a lasting relationship with, given your personality and "strongly held" opinions, you would do damn well to try and start a conversation with someone else who is as brainwashed as you are. I feel for your lost love, most of of us have at least one, hell, you don't want to know how many I have, but, find someone who you can sit around the kitchen table and bitch about Libertarian-ism with and you just may find happiness. BTW, some of your poems are quite good, for sure in a higher league then your commentary, some even truly touching.

Monkey, swing out of this tree and let doc sit in the shade by himself while he decides whether to do something about being alone or not. While it is easy as hell to date online, making the decision to so is still rough, you have to be emotionally ready and I honestly do not know if he is or not.
