Hi, friends. Seeking your input on my newest song. Gemma at gemz16 sent me these lovely words and challenged me to use them in a song:
She sits alone, rain pours around her,
her broken face is quite a picture.
Holding back tears cause of what she’s done,
she had no control, and she starts to run.
I asked why she’s crying, and Gemma admitted the plot wasn’t clear to her when she penned these words. So, I thought I’d ask all of you: what has this girl done? Be creative; make up her crime! I may not discuss her mistake explicitly in the song lyrics, but I need to have a mistake in mind while I’m writing—to feel for for this girl.
A proof for a mathematically astute girl I know; it’s perfectly valid, though perhaps not sound:
To enjoy life, we need a purpose.
We find purpose in loving someone.
From these premises, we can derive two logical arguments:
I love you, thus I have a purpose.
I have a purpose, thus I enjoy life.
If you want to enjoy life, then you need a purpose.
If you need a purpose, then you should love me.
Don’t you want to enjoy life?
The beautiful Rafaella at rawphaelah sent this awesome story to me. She said I could share it with all of you. Song incoming!
The story is about two close friends that have known each other since high school started. The boy is very good looking, surfer, funny, polite etc, not a single girl can’t fall for him. His “ideal” girl is barbie-ish, blonde, tall, pretty, great body.. But the girl is the total opposite, she’s small, shy, lack of self-confidence, you get the picture. She has always been attracted to him but has always seen him as her good friend who gets it with loads of girls, he has always seen her as just a friend too. But this year, everything has changed, they’ve started to feel a mutual attraction for each other. The girl has never fallen in love, she has no clue what it feels like. But as the days past, she realises that the attraction she has for the boy is maybe a little bit more than just a physical attraction, as John Greene once said in a book he wrote “I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once” And that is just what happened to her. But she never told anyone, not even her close friends who are also the boy’s close friends. She’s too scared they will tell him and she knows he doesn’t feel the same and it will just make things awkward between them, and she certainly doesn’t want that because she adores him as a friend and doesn’t want to lose their friendship. One thing led to another and the two shared a few kisses and else one night, then another night, then another one again. But every time it happened the boy told her straight after that for a “unexplainable” reason he felt attracted to her, but he just wanted to stay friends. Meanwhile, their entourage keep on noticing how close they are to be just friends and jokingly ask them why they aren’t dating. Neither the boy or the girl ever answer. Only a few close friends know what has been going on with the girl and the boy recently but no one talks about it. One day, the girl’s best friend tells her that she is indeed in love with this boy but the girl denies it, love is surely more than that? How could she be in love with him, she knows how he is and the way he acts with girls, she knows all he wants to sleep around with girls. But then she realises that wherever she could be, even if it were the most horrible boring place, if he was there, she would be happy. And that’s when she realises she is indeed mad about him, he makes her happy, and she hasn’t been happy in a very long time before. Nobody knows if the boy feels the same way, he never makes his mind up. One day he’ll say he likes the girl, and the next she’s just a close friend. But he’s jealous when she flirts with other boys, especially when that other boy is a friend of his. Since their first kiss, they have a love/hate friendship, they can go from insulting each other for a stupid reason to cuddling and teasing each other the next hour. The boy has absolutely no clue that the girl is in love with him, and the girl has no clue what the boy really feels for her. Also, even though her closest friends tell her she’s in love with him, she denies it, she refuses to accept that, this is not who, or how she wanted to fall in love. But you can’t control feelings can you?
(Sorry about the long essay)
(And yes..I have lived this experience, I am in fact living it right now.)
Signed, the girl.
Clever girls look for clever boys
but never seem to find them.
Clever boys look for daft girls
and find plenty.
I don’t want a daft girl.
I’ve retired from looking.
I’m blindfolded, tied to a chair,
waiting for a clever girl to find me.
I can’t get the look of this girl out of my skull.
She wears a sun dress like the sun shines for her.
