I just want to preface this by saying that most of the writings here were short ideas and not connected to each-other. Some of these are lyrics that I've tried (and failed) to add more to in a way to feel complete or whole but the rest hasn't came to me yet, and I feel these are good enough windows into ideas that can be explored later! I know quite a few of these were meant as lyrical hooks to songs that I've wanted to write and I want to better serve these with complimentary expressions and closure but that's been quite a daunting task in the mix of all my writings. Also, this is my first time posting much smaller works than what I normally write, but I feel that it can be important to be able to convey your feelings/emotions/ideas in short writings not only as a literary practice but also a different way to mentally process these words as they come to you (however that may be). Feel free to let me know if anything catches your eye or sticks out to you, Looking past the glaringly midwest emo theme (that i've been told my writing style lends to... LOL) I'm curious to see if such small ideas can be impactful enough on their own...
"The moment brings a memory, fading in - a sudden thought. Then time stood still, I get a chill, thinking of things I wish I forgot."
"My love is a burden, not made for you to carry it, but while you're still here, can you help me bury it?
Once we forget, we'll pass all regret, I hope this bond we share mends... can't we still stay friends..."
"I wish I could heal, these moments that I steal, they seem too out of my control, but whenever my heart takes center stage I feel it's me who plays the fool."
"Why do I feel that it's only me who's losing, in this one sided tug of war.
But I got nothing left to give so I'll just give in, I just need to quit pretending.
Would you ever drop the rope to let me up, if that means I'm hanging on to you?
Hopefully the weight isn't too burdensome, just wish I could drop this baggage for two."
"On the other end of the phone
But not the one who's calling
I hear my dad talking
He speaks about his fortune
While I speak in laughter to hide the pain
Because I know you can't have it any other way
Miles away yet the excuses all sound the same
It's getting old now, not like I knew any different
The defenses we've forged have been equally intimate
And it's times like this I surmise after it's over
That it's all too easy to stay distant."
"A child's cries,
The Lord hears them
Louder than Worship."
"Without God I would have worse than nothing, I'd be missing my everything."
