She was perfect in every sense of the word. 22 years ago, I was 15 years old and scared in a new High School. She was a Senior and lovingly confident. I say that not with a mature sense, but rather with a teenage, naÃ¯ve sense. She was remarkable and so confusing to me at the same time. My first crush wrapped up in a green sports jacket. We were in Choir together and just looking at her sing made me speechless. I didn't understand these new feelings I was having, even though they felt ooh, so right. I never spoke a word to her and her the same. She had a boyfriend and freshman didn't talk to upperclassman... it's just the way it was then. Little did I know she would soon become my first crush of my long, tumultuous teenage life. I soon began to want to go to the school just to see her sing and hopefully catch a glimpse of her outside of the Choir hallway. She was mysterious and yet so lovely... and as quickly as I grew accustomed to seeing her and crushing on her, was as quickly as she Graduated and left my life. Fast forward 22 years. These poems represent the account of a simple teenage love long ago and the subsequent meeting and attempt at a relationship years after the High School experience. The poems are presented here in a time line fashion as they were originally written. As the relationship progressed and eventually hit it's downturn, the Poems directly reflect this as well. We tried, and failed miserably... years of life had taken it's toll on our innocence and us in general. She still, to this day, is difficult for me to discuss... our relationship that failed years later took away my childhood innocence and robbed me of the first crush years prior. It's difficult to take sometimes and of course, forgetting about it isn't an option. I love her... always have and always will.Hope you enjoy this life retrospect of this special section to my life that I hold very close and dear to my heart.
Angioplasty has completely transformed the treatment of coronary artery disease and is widely used, with more than 800,000 procedures performed worldwide per year. However, the enthusiasm for angioplasty is shadowed by restenosis, which remains a critical problem after the procedure, resulting in clinical recurrence in over a third of patients. Recently, the mechanisms of restenosis have been completely reappraised with an enriched understanding that the original concept of neointimal hyperplasia may not be accounting for the bulk of the problem.
