Running On Empty.

Why yes, in fact this is my second post today. Even though I haven't been doing that much my mind is set on high speed for some time it seems. I was rather hoping it was only a result of a restless night. 

I went bicycling earlier and then I took a stroll in the university library. Books have an ability to give me a sense of serenity, even when I'm not reading them. Just the smell, it seems, is enough to relax me. And being aware of the fact that there is so much to learn comforts me, it gives me direction.

I still feel completely devoid of sentiment, however. Pun intended.

things keep popping out
on my face
or of my life
it seems no matter how I try
I become more difficult
to hold
I am not an easy woman
to want

How I enjoy the poetic genius of Nikki Giovanni.
