    i saw a Cloudless Sulpher flying by

    and she saw me crying and then asked me why

    someone of your stature isn't sighing with the sweet potato pie of his dreams

    after studying her theme for a while

    howard answered :

    i lost her heart when it was time to win it

    [exhausted, he tried to smile but couldn't begin it]

    [and then continues]

    she lied when she said we weren't possible in the first place

    and that her popcicle was always ahead in the race

    cause if he saw what i saw i don't think he'd ever be able to erase the image of them two

    slowly gliding down the sidewalk for what seemed like an hour or two or three

    the sight of them talking will always be haunting me

    and my conscious keeps telling me that if i could've did what he did,

    and opened the lid

    to our $100,000 pyramid

    she would have accepted my bid

    to become her Joe Kidd

    but as it is, the cost of my mistakes are constantly taunting me

    and i'm lost in a lake of "what could've been " memories of her and an Italian resturant and me

    contemplating



    love,

    howard

    The harsh reality of what could have been, can be quite a biiter pill. This was felt, howard.
