This is also going to be on the long list of good/bad ideas.
Because you need to sort out your fucking life, and nobody does that better than you do.
Only because you can only count on yourself for something like this. So there is nothing else to worry about.
You are still the same person you were.
Just, I don't know... more of a sap?
Anyways, when you feel stuck... like now for example, just let your words fall from you hands.
You still hold all of this in your life right?
Sidenote: I highly recommend listening to these songs/watching the musical, it is amazing.
Song title: Lyrics My thoughts/feelings
Anybody Have A Map?:
Anybody maybe happen to know how the hell to do this?
I'm in this confusion so deep that I can't find a way out.
I'm flying blind, and I'm making this up as I go.
Ha. Me too.
Waving Through a Window:
Step out, step out of the sun if you keep getting burned.
I've been burning forever.
Waving through a window!
Put your soul into this song.
All we see is sky for forever.
An ecstasy I do not know.
All we see is light, 'cause the sun burns bright!
Shouting hallelujah from here.
Life will be alright for forever this way.
I hope so.
All that it takes is a little reinvention!
I need that.
All you gotta do, is just believe you can be who you wanna be.
Just believing right?
I will sing no requiem.
Neither will I.
I gave you the world, you threw it away. Leaving these broken pieces behind you.
Everything wasted, nothing to say.
Within these words I finally find you.
The words are not mine.
Now that I know that you are still here.
If I Could Tell Her:
But he kept it all inside his head, what he saw, he left unsaid.
Secrets work wonders do they not?
If I could tell her, tell her everything I see. If I could tell her how she's everything to me. But we're a million worlds apart... And I don't know how I would even start.
How do we begin to say the words?...
No one deserves to be forgotten. No one deserves to fade away.
No one should come and go, and have no one know he was ever even here.
I'll make sure of it.
You Will Be Found:
Well, let that lonely feeling... wash away.
I should let the weight drop from my shoulders.
To Break In A Glove:
And a little uphill climb.
Just more work.
For a kid who's lost control.
I'm just trying to make sense of it all.
Try to quiet the noises in your head. We can't compete with all that.
No we can't. But we try.
Good For You:
And you say what you need to say, so that you get to walk away.
I hope that it's all that you want and more.
I'm not proud.
And you play who you need to play.
JUST LET ME OUT!
I am not okay.
I never thought that it would go this far.
I really didn't.
So I just stand here sorry. Searching for something to say.
I am still searching.
There's nothing I can say.
There really isn't.
That's a worthy explanation, I know. Nothing can make sense of all these things I've done.
I wish I could make it up to you.
So how do I step in...
Step into the sun?
I wish I knew how...
So Big/So Small:
And I knew I'd come up short a million different ways.
And I did.
And I do.
And I will.
And I will... I already have...
Today is going to be a good day, and here's why:
Because today, at least you're you and that's enough...
All I see is sky for forever...
I'm going home.
Yeah... I'm going home.
2 pages and too many ashes.
The smell of smoke still lingering in the air.
And so another piece of my life falls.
And I don't know where to go from here.
I read back, looking at old texts.
Searching for the moment when things changed. And I found it.
And even if I never recreate the better part of myself.
Those conversations, those meaningful stories, that friendship will always exist.
I mean... it's the eternal bond we share.
I try not to write in past tense. Like there's a chance to be okay again.
And there is.
There always will be.
Because I will never look back and be bitter. I'll look back with a smile.
Because I was honest... and that is the best I can do.
I'll never shut you out.
But we have to meet halfway do we not?
~April 12th, 2017~
Some time between 8:00pm and 9:00pm in the street of Paris...
Imagine walking down the street with the best strawberry yogurt ice cream in the world. Seeing the street of starving artists in all different forms, like that one scene from a movie you saw years ago.
Seeing freehand artists drawing the faces of complete strangers, and the suddenly hearing music.
Hearing a complete strangers singing over classical guitar and not knowing if they were singing in english of french.
But I don't really care. Music has been and always will be a universal language.
So what more can you do about a starving artist?
Well there's only so much you can do for a guy playing classical guitar in the middle of Paris.
So about 3 songs and €10 later, this artist's voice rings through the empty street. And somehow I become the starving artist, playing this guitar that doesn't belong to me.
And yet I play out like nobody is listening in.
Applause comes... and it goes...
I played one song to look up, and one song from here. All the while feeling the air pass through this street. The only thing left to do was pick up a name and a sappy french poem.
I shake his hand and come away from the street with a major music high. (Pun intended)
And I wasn't the only one on Cloud 9, the feeling shared by yet another music nerd.
And as we roam the streets of Paris singing the same lyrics from "La La Land", we feel complete for now.
And in that moment...
And there's nothing more I can really say other than...
How did we get here?
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,"
Said the blind cyclops in his customer review,
which is filed in the Physically-Disabled-Yet-Still-Insightful folder of our Customer's Reviews.
A folder seldom perused by our super,
who seems to prefer deferring all menial mentally-unstable issues to those who are new to the feild.
I hesitate to inform them that "field" is the type of word that I've always been notorious for misspelling.
Setting: My Hometown, The School Ground, The 3rd Space, The Front Seat Of The Car, The Church, 2014-17 and beyond
Main Cast: The Musician, The Punk, The Tie-Wearer
Other Important Roles: The Prince, The Parental Units, The Body Guard, The Boy With The Glasses, The 5 Personalities, The Logical Thinker, The Multiple Third Parties, etc. There are too many to count.
Edit: Do not cast the 5 personalities... I mean, you can, just be careful. They might quit their jobs halfway through the film.
Deciding to make this movie is a challenge that nobody is prepared to execute, so don't be surprised if you cannot handle the emotional scarring and strain on every single character in the film. This is not your average story.
And these are not your average characters.
So we start our story off in 2014.
2 of our main characters meet...
And our story begins...
Ever have a browser open
With many different tabs?
Its a slippery slope
From one tab needed,
To about 20 for no reason
Some only open for a second
Taking up more bandwidth than the
It's like when it slows down, your computer
Is committing the high act of treason
Bleeding onto the overstimulated neurons
That occupy your mind with things so frivolous
And then you see..
The holes in your thoughts and logic creeping and creaking, closer to falling apart
Like listening to someone with a perpetually broken heart
Speak about love purer than the whitest dove
And how they'll never fall apart...
That's what my brain is like
Ive long since given up the fight...
You chase me with a word
like a bratty brother
chases a little sister
with a cricket
holding the legs of intimidation
near my ear
as you have done
many times before -
sometimes with a cricket of inferiority
or a cricket of slavery
but always a cricket of judgement.
You portend to have the power
to put it on me
until the tear in my eye
My teeth gnash
wrapping around the finger that dangled
the last cricket of taunting,
a pest of manipulation,
held with your insect-filled arrogance
and I chew defiantly
masticating your ability
to ever chase me again.
Choose it now
swallow or spit
it's irrelevant -
your threats are dead.
I have dreams that he dies a lot
Either by getting shot by someone or hit by a car
in those dreams I am always looking forward to a new future
a clean slate
I think it's obvious my dreams are a sign that he is actually the one killing me
I would never wish death upon someone
but is it fair that he has killed me multiple times?
Look, I never said I was that smart.
I say stupid stuff all the time.
It's not like I'm always awake.
I'm rewriting my life story.
But we all wish some parts of our lives were different.
I'm rewriting my DNA make my skin less red, my spine less curved, my mind less distracted, to make my body hurt less.
I'm rewriting my backstory, one where I didn't worry about much other than my life at home. I never told anybody how dangerous my life used to be...
