Where do I stand?

Someone keeps shooting out the street lights.


Uncertainty couldn't be the worst thing, could it? I'm standing on an empty street in the middle of the night. I can see headlights. The car could hit me. Or, it could pick me up and take me somewhere better than a dark street in the middle of the night.


Holy crap!! What is with exclamation points anyway?!?! Talk about fake, useless, pry-some-emotion-from-your-reader punctuation!!! And the worst part is that they come at the end of a sentence so you didn't even know the sentence was supposed to be an exclamation until the end!!! I can't stand it! Especially in freaking poetry!! At least they're not as bad as WRITING IN ALL CAPS!!!! AHHHH!!!!
