a bit o my heart (a la 1999)

I wrote a lot of poetry in high school.
And, curious, did some searching tonight.
When I choose to, I remember everything about high school. Or at least most of it.
Good thing I don't choose to very often, apparently I was very angsty.
I can share it now without embarrassment, because anything older that 7 years
might as well have been written by someone else, right? No editing here, although I think 2008 me might want to change some things that 1999 me did. I'll leave it alone for now. 

"Like A Fool" (maybe 1999?)

My heart was carried away

And i was left behind

Looking perfectly like a fool

To wander

Blushing and stumbling

Through a cruel world

Without a heart to guide me
