Signs of a Virgin (I Mean Virgo)

Reading horoscopes & astrology always confuses me. Reading these things are like reading the instructions for making my own box.

Apparently I’m a Virgo because:

  1. I was born under the sign of a virgin. (Not literally, I hope.)
  2. I’m a sign of criticism and discrimination. (Wait…..What!?)
  3. I am quite shy and introverted, and even naive at times. (Depends on which day it is.)
  4. I have a cool exterior with a sensitive interior. (I call it “Man in the Iron Mask” complex.)
  5. I’m good at hiding my emotions & dwelling on the past. (Refer to number 4.)
  6. I have tremendous respect for women and will treat them like an equal.
  7. I can find humor in most things, and often empathize with others. (I should be a Comedian or Therapist, but apparently I can’t be both.)
  8. I am not that reserved when it comes to sex. (It happens, let’s talk about it.)
  9. My brain is in overdrive most of the time. (I broke the off switch a long time ago.)
  10. I can be aloof, sarcastic & pessimistic. (I prefer the term “nonchalant”.)
  11. I’m modest & down to Earth. (Or so I’ve been told.)

Good On Paper

Made a list, couldn’t check it off.
So I left it on the kitchen wall where I can’t ignore it.
Almost ran out of space from all of the possibilities thrown down frantically as they escaped me.
Dotted lines & point-form questions got off my mind & took up the page.
Always knew that I thought too damn much,
but I never knew how it would make me feel.
Faced it all after the fact, read it back & lost my breath again.
Walked away just to come right back.
I’m not trying to convince you of anything.
Without you nothing’s certain, that’s for sure.
Left a space for you to fill, don’t waste it.
Don’t tell me what I want to hear, tell me what is real.
What is really going on here?
Did I ever stand a chance?
Everything looks good on paper.
