**************************


There isn't much to do,

Other than see it through,

That the world shall hear,

Of my name, not due to you!


So hear what I wish to attain,

What I so crave to gain:

Unlike you, I can be forgotten,

So I claim: Rubinshtein!


You've ignored me,

In these lonely hallways,

So I will make the world see,


So hear what I wish to attain,

What I so crave to gain:

Unlike you, I can be forgotten,

So I claim: Rubinshtein!



Your own "helping",


So hear what I wish to attain,

What I so crave to gain:

Unlike you, I can be forgotten,

So I claim: Rubinshtein!


But each new connection,

Gives my joy such a tip!


So hear what I wish to attain,

What I so crave to gain:

Unlike you, I can be forgotten,

So I claim: Rubinshtein!


I'm not even that important!

And because of this,


So hear what I wish to attain,

What I so crave to gain:

Unlike you, I can be forgotten,

So I claim: Rubinshtein!


Even if logically baseless,

It's my greatest of fears!


So hear what I have to say,

You soon-to-be-a-wife!

Not much love in my life!


I thank you so,

For bringing this up!

Now I have a lifetime, and a song,


You've done all the required mistakes,

And now I thank you so,

Dozens of years, they will take,


A lifetime of work,

Can be left in the dust!

A greater audience is a "must"!


I am aware I am obsessive,

But it runs deeply in my mind!

Of one's potential, I am possessive,

To deliver it to humankind!

Post-Poem Ruminations


My name was never Tom with a Teth... I gave her my first book, and she still did not remember... my name.


And to think I trusted a stranger so naively; A stranger, I deluded myself, that knows me. I "mustn't" commit the same mistake once more. I must plan more carefully.


I prefer a life of solitude, more than having someone who can pretend you do not exist, once more. A boycott of one, back then, only to fail at helping me.


Backstabbing... is such a regular feature in our lives.
