“Jealous Kind” or “I need to expand my poetic prowess”

This is good stuff.

Jealous Kind / Jars of Clay

I built another temple to a stranger
I gave away my heart to the rushing wind
I set my course to run right into danger
Sought the company of fools instead of friends

You know I’ve been unfaithful
Lovers in line
While you’re turning over tables
With the rage of a jealous kind
I chose the gallows to the aisle
Thought that love would never find
Hanging ropes will never keep you
And your love of a jealous kind
Love of a jealous kind

Tryin’ to jump away from rock that keeps on spreading
For solace in the shift of the sinking sand
I’d rather feel the pain all too familiar
Then be broken by a lover I don’t understand
‘Cause I don’t understand

One hundred other lovers, more, one hunderd other altars
If I should slow my pace and finally subject me to grace
And love that shames the wise, betrays the heart’s deceit and lies
And breaks the back of foolish pride

Hmmm...i never knew you where so poetic. I always thought you where a jerk. then again i think you are just shy. I worked a semester for UCOMM, I really didn't know you very well. I think you need to meet a couple of people on campus that have the same values, hobbies and personality as you. There is a girl that works at SAU that you should meet. I don't know here name, I think you 2 would get a long. Then again she might think you are jerk.

it doesn't matter i guess. don't be lost. most people at sau think that you are either a jerk or you are shy. I know you like photography. there was this person that worked at the computer place that loved taking pictures of people. i can't remember her name, but she asked me one if she could take a picture of me, she told me that she loved taking pictures of people. she has this collection of pictures of people that she doesn't even know of. you might find her pictures interesting. seeing your pictures just reminded me of her. since i read your post i thought it would be interesting if 2 people from the same work place with the same interest could meet. alas! never mind my post. i think you are just a shy person. you should look for that girl that likes photography.

Ummm...yeah. Emily and I are good friends. Not as much as we used to be, but even so we've been friends since 1998 or so, our freshman year at SAU. So, you were right. We would get along...and do.
