Empty





What is this empty vessel doing in my hand?
I swear I filled it up just moments ago.

Condensation is slick on the vessel I have in my hand,
But it's as empty as an up-turned hourglass.

It wasn't supposed to be this empty I was sure.
Was there a hole that was made while I looked away?

I wish I could wind back time,
never to have filled this vessel that seems as broken as fragile glass.

It can never be full again
but I will set it aside
for some other fool
to be duped
by the
condensation too.

Joke

A man and a woman were having drinks when they got into an argument about who enjoyed sex more.
The man said, "Men obviously enjoy sex more than women. Why do you think we're so obsessed with getting laid?"
"That doesn't prove anything," the woman countered, "Think about this; when your ear itches and you stick your little finger in it, wiggle it around, and then pull it out, which feels better- your ear or your finger?"

Joke - Genie

An old woman was in the kitchen washing the dishes when suddenly a little genie appeared beside her. "You've led a long and good life," the genie said, "I have come to reward you by granting you three wishes. Ask for anything you want and I will make it happen."
The old lady was surprised but cynical. Not really believing that anything would happen, she decided to play along for a minute. "Okay," she said, "Turn all those dirty dishes into money."
Poof! The dishes turned into piles of cash.
"My, my," said the old lady, staggered that it had actually worked, "Perhaps you could make me look young and beautiful again?"
There was another big poof, and the woman now looked lots younger and was smoking hot. Excitedly she carried on, "Can you turn my dear old cat, Frisky, into a handsome young man?"
Once more there was a big poof, and the cat was replaced by a strapping young man. Smiling devilishly, she turned to the young…

You

YOU tell me I shouldn't care about YOU,
     that all your promises were heartfelt but not meant to come true.
I believed in YOU.
I wanted YOU to believe in us too.
My heart has to learn now
     how not to beat for two.
I am always thinking of YOU.
My memory burns with YOU.
How could YOU be so cruel?
