She reads poetry in her pajamas
And laughs when there is no joke
She runs away from the rain
And dances in cigarette smoke

Pictures never capture
The whisps of silver hair
Surrounding her face
And following her everywhere

She never dreams when she sleeps
Only when she's holding booze
She drives around in the prairie hills
With a childish smile
After all, what has she got to lose?
Inspired by Alaska Young, from John Green's Looking For Alaska. I put a bit of me in there too.

when I read this, I imagined it as a song. Then I started crying and my brother saw me and asked what was wrong. I couldn't tell him, because he never read the book and anyways, he wouldn't understand. I don't even know if I understand.

if I would tell this to my best friend(witch i wouldnt) and if she read the book(witch she never will) it would go like this:
me:"... What has she got to lose?"
Her:"Her LIFE!!!"
Its beautiful tough:)
