I Want To Know

I want to know what makes you tick

What makes you angry, what makes you sad

I want to know what gives you joy

What do you live for and who would you die for

I want to know the things that no one knows

What keeps you up at night

I want to know those secret dreams

What drives you

I want to know who was the first person you ever loved

And who was the first person to break your heart

I want to peel away at the layers of you

I want to know, are we kindred souls?

I Love Him, But…

Though I don’t know you I miss you. And though I’ve never met you I long to see you. I don’t know when I’ll see you, maybe tomorrow, maybe in a few years.
For so long I’ve tried to make others fit into a place where only you belong. What can I say? A girl gets lonely, and then she starts to wonder if you exist. Coming home to an empty house gets difficult and Mr. Right Now is just a text message away.
I’m just ready to finally be with someone where there are no barriers. I’m not hiding behind fear, or mystery. The connection is true and without conditions, no more “I love him, but…”

We’re Alive!

Because of the cross I have target on my back.

So do what you need to, I’m never going back.

Fight it all you want, my God already won.

I call His name in victory, it’s already done.

I’m alive I’m alive, I tell you I’m alive!

You can try to kill me but I will never die.

I’m alive I’m alive, I tell you I’m alive!

You can try to kill me but I’m alive in Christ!

100 Word Story

It was just a meal between friends, or that’s what I convinced myself it was. The butterflies in my stomach told the real story. I was going to see you, my if only”, my “I wish”.

We sat down to the table across from each other, we talked, we laughed, just like friends do. But while you smiled I was bleeding inside. Every look you gave me was like a shot to the heart, and it cried why.

Why is this so easy, but yet so hard?

Why do I torture myself this way?

Why am I such a fool?

30 Days of Music: Day 6 Flyleaf-Cage on the Ground

“I’m leaving my cage on the ground.”

Welcome to the show of my life.

Where I am a monkey on display.

I’ll do what you want as I dream of the knife.

Feeling my dreams wither away.

This is my life, a soul in a cage.

A parrot being told what to say.

I’ll put on my mask and dance on the stage.

You speak and so I obey.

I am a flower wilting in a cave.

Desperate for the light of the sun.

I’ll get out of here, I’ve got to be brave.

Before I’m completely undone.

30 Days of Music: Day 4 Red Hot Chili Peppers- Road Trippin

“Let’s get lost.”

I want to take a journey with you.
I want to see all the beautiful places.
I want to see how you look with the sea behind you.
I want to see how the setting sun looks in your eyes.
I want to drive all night and contemplate the universe.
I just want to leave the world behind and find a new world with you.

30 Days of Music: Day 2 Daughter- Home

Now he’s moving close,
My heart in my throat.
I won’t say a word,
But I think he knows…
That I’ve hardly slept,
Since the night he left.
-Daughter


I thought I’d closed the door, but you were wanting more.
Brown eyes bare into mine, I can’t resist their shine.
I want to hold you near, but in my heart I fear.
Is this is just one night, a taste and not a bite.

Because my heart’s a mess, my soul is in distress.
I’ll spend my nights alone, and you won’t call my phone.
Why don’t you leave me be, leave me to find my peace.
I only have one hope, that you will let me go.

30 Days of Music: Day 1, Lemolo- We Felt the Fall

I was hunting the web-o-sphere looking for 30 day writing challenges and came across 30 Days of music by tumblr blogger SadisticYellowBird.

30 Days of Music: A Writing Challenge

Rules: For each day, post a piece of writing (short story, poem, etc.) based on a song. In essence, write a story around the feelings/ memories the song evokes, based on the songs concept, or around a line of lyric (if applicable) that really resonates within. For every post, link a YouTube video of the song before the writing.

The list of music given spanned many genres and so it intrigued me. I love discovering new to me music and I had never blogged for 30 days in a row. So here we go, Day 1.



“It was lifelike. It was over me. It was so low. It was so heavy.”

-Lemolo

You were an unexpected storm, forceful and destructive.

I had no time to prepare for the damage left behind.

Your clouds and your power although they were seductive,

had fear and misery made in their design.

You were gone as quickly as you arrived,

gone to another unsuspecting fool.

Despite it all the best parts of me survived.

your deception and lesson are now my fuel.
