To the heart that I sacrificed
Never got off easy with life

The scars I bear are my memories

I wonder how our feelings grow
Ain't it strange
The places our thoughts can go
Outer space
Wondering what path 
I should take
It's strange to think about

Right now I hate reality
And this life
I'm trying hard not to repeat
Things twice
But mistakes keep piling up and I
Can't find the strength to leave

Don't you hesitate my love

You see I have learned my lessons through fear
The prices I've paid were far too near
To the heart that I sacrificed/*to my heart and I bear the price*
Never got off easy with life

Now I'm trapped in this nightmare/*forest* with no one to save me

Novel Writing Competition 2018

Dreaming of Jason

Card 1, In Which There Is Sweet Sadness

Close contact, small touch.
You have to go, you're moving. 
To a new place, leave.
My heart hurts to see you packing.
Maybe you know how I feel, maybe you don't.
That will be my punishment for not telling you.
I hug you tightly from your back.
You smile at the mirror to me, assuring, loving.
And inside, my heart swells with sadness and sweetness at your smile, knowing it will be the last I see of you.
Fully clothed, but bare-skinned, I can feel your heart beating against my chest.
Do you feel mine?
While you bend down and pack, I hug from behind, breathing you in.
You smell of comfort, then of you.
But you are both to me.
You get up, I do too.
Awkward, I stand away.
You reach past me for your coat, brushing against my skin softly
A second, your cheek against mine.
Beautiful, simple, sweet...

Unwritten Books

If I were to take you,
As a person,
And turn you into a book,
What would that book be like?
What words would it use to tell your story?
How ragged would its edges feel?
How old would its pages smell?

Think for a second:
This book would contain
Everything about you.
Your personality,
Your faults,
Your merits,
Your ups,
Your downs,
Your mistakes,
Your triumphs.

Would you be proud
To show this book
To your loved ones?
Would you want them
To see every piece
That makes you who you are?
Would they enjoy
Reading the book
That contains all of you?
Or would they hate it
And turn away from you?
And if they did hate it,
What would you do?
Would you edit out the parts
They didn't like
And change yourself for them?
Or would you keep yourself
The way you are,
A Limited First Edition?

Well, it's a good thing we are people

If I were to take you,
As a person,
And turn you into a book,
What would that book say?
How many words would be in it?
How many pages would it have?
What would it look like?
Would it have the vanilla scent of a new book,
Or the musty smell of an old book?
Would it have pages that are lined up perfectly
Or pages that are rough and ragged around the edges?


Think for a second:
This book would contain
Everything about you.
Your personality,
Your faults,
Your merits,
Your ups,
Your downs,
Your mistakes,
Your triumphs.

Ms. Missing You

(Verse 1) 

I,
get carried away
In saying
Things that I shouldn't say
Like maybe,
Saying that I miss you
When I shouldn't
Tell you I do.

(Verse 2)

I come,
Around
At my loneliest times
Like in
The middle
of the dark night
When I just,
Want some love and affection.
Give me,
Your loving protection.

(Instrumental)

I come around at my loneliest times.
I come around.
I come around at my loneliest times.


(Verse 3)

When I
Look in your eyes
I see that
You don't despise me
Despite
The way I treat you
Then I wonder 
If maybe you do.

(Verse 4)

And I
Don't know
Why you still stick around
After
How
I get you so down
When I take
Your love for granted
I think you're
Too enchanted,

(Bridge)

With the thought of me
Drawing you near
Kisses with no fear
The pleasure...
Is all ours but
I'll disappear
After a night full of
Taking...
