All right, so here’s my site update. I deleted the Updates and Wish*List sections because they were taking up room and getting dusty. HOWEVER, I also added a section: Shrines. I also updated the Links list and all of the other pages according to the new internal links. I’m on the verge of officially beginning Shmunt Comics site, but haven’t actually had enough time as yet to do much with the idea or the HTML. I’m also working on the profile for Amedeus, the Werewolf, so all of you FOTF people should be happy to hear that. As for my personal life, it’s going well. School’s actually not that bad, when I go to class, but works sucks so badly. I hate it so much and haven’t actually gone in at least a couple of weeks, missing any days I could be making money, including days that I’m scheduled to go in. C’est la vie, no? I know I haven’t been online much recently, and that’s mostly because my phobia of talking on the phone has spread to instant messaging as well. At least it’s not completely handicapping me… yet. I should be posting more quizzes soon, if that’s what you’re looking for, but as always, this page is for myself, so if I change my mind about that don’t be surprised or disappointed. Good day, and congratulations to my sister for passing her driving test!! And with a better score than I had when I passed it, no less. 🙂 See you all later.

rain skin you

I miss the rain
it falls often and
hits the ground,
steaming like my skin

when the rain falls,
it cools my skin,
burnt from the
heat of my pain

the cold drips off
of the trees and
lands upon my arms
and face lightly

sometimes it hurts
so much I can only lie
in the rain and try not to

drown in my fears

but just when I think
I can no longer take
the heat and survive,
you are there

you sit beside me,
hold me tightly and,
like the rain I miss so much,
you cool my skin

so I can bear it again
