Note: I'm new here, so, hi... some of you know me,some of you don't. This is just something I randomly wrote up.  


Call me lonesome,
and I'll be all right.
Call me a lonely fool,
and I'll smile'n'shrug.

'cause I don't need you,
I'm just fine with the wall
as my closest companion.
The dialogues a bit weak,
but, then again,
it's just me and me again.

My loves, deeply felt,
I'll confess outright;
the hell-bent anger, from time
to time jumps my handbasket heart.

I'll gain from you, and maybe
impress a fool now and again.
Whichever way it goes, I'll be
okay. Just ask. A quiet man
may just like to talk.

Titus?  A quiet man?

Ptth.  If only.  

Welcome to Sanctuary, Ti.  Hope you have a blast here, thanks for contributing.

If only you actually knew me. I'm quiet, unless getting into a theological debate of some sort, or with a close friend, and even then, I'm not always loud. I can be talkative, but my personality is the loner, observe-society type.

I'm hoping I enjoy myself here. I was wondering where all your work went.

The poem? Not so good? I've been feeling kind of dry... I keep writing, but my style doesn't seem fresh to me, in that, it isn't reaching me like it usually does. Here's where I search for a new style to stretch me.

Cool little monologue.  I could definitely visualize this.

wow Ti, haven't seen/talked to you in the longest time. *peck* miss seeing you around on AIM to bug. I've read better from you, but I still enjoyed this piece. Especially this bit:
quote:

I'm just fine with the wall
as my closest companion.
The dialogues a bit weak,
but, then again,
it's just me and me again.

drop me a line sometime would ya? i'd like to catch up. see you around sweetie.

Heh heh... thank you, you two.

Yes, Tiff, we should catch up. Indeed!
