Lifeless

August 20th, 2020

What a time
To be alive
Sunlight’s bleeding
Through the sky
The weather rebels
The people do too
You have to think fast
Before lightning strikes you
It’s time to escape
But where do you go
Life as you knew it
Burned with no afterglow
Longing for the past
That you want to revive
Lethargic towards the future
But you want to survive

Wanting

August 18th, 2020

Here I am again
I lack the words to say
I set myself apart
But I don’t want to feel this way
I want to feel accepted
I want to feel wanted
But I won’t let myself
Feel anything but haunted
Here I am again
I don’t know how to proceed
I write myself into pieces
That no one ever reads
I want to feel happy
I want to feel important
But I can’t change myself
So I’ll live my life dormant

“19 of My All Time Favorite Songs”

Hello there!

While experiencing writer’s block, I like to post some updates about me and my life. Today I wanted to bring back a Facebook challenge from 2010 when people were asked to post their top nineteen favorite songs. I stumbled across my original post which I must have rushed because I forgot so many favorites! Music is one of my greatest influences, so I wanted to use this as a chance to update my list.

4. What You See (Is What You Get) – Britney Spears

5. Meet Virginia – Train

6. Wonderful – Everclear

7. With You – Jessica Simpson
