My Crush

Paid to date,

zero dollars

 

Total aid awarded

twenty thousand

 

Estimated cost of attendence

twenty five thousand

 

And there she stands, my crush on paper

Planned and loaned, I the debtor

 

The borrower and unwilling spender

And they promised such wonerful splendor

 

To send to higher places

Education

 

But sailing there is treacherous

Intrepid and temultuous

 

Instead I've waited on coarse sand for her

Looking out on the horizon

 

Feeling the Quake beneth me

And watching as the water withdraws

 

My crush is deep and blue

An expression of myself

 

But unlike me unforgiving

Stoic and white capped

 

Waiting to swallow me up

Sweeping me away

 

With all of her beauty and promise
