    Title: Temptation I am: The song you can't

    Please don't judge, I was nine

    when I wrote this. I had just finished reading that Thea Stilton book and was wondering what if I wrote a cheesy song just like what Vince Guymouse sings to Colette. (Is that how it's spelled?) Lol. So I was just rummaging through my old stuff, found this and wanted to share it...

    Life is Fragile An unusual occurrence in a

    familiar place is similar to an uneventful moment in a strange place. It’s like the lyric of a song without its music, or vice versa. The emotions experienced in such a moment must be what a man-or woman feels when he or she loses a loved one—to death. Death is different...

    The Stars They Burn Out.

    A man cannot be a king when he has no castle. A bird it cannot fly without its wings. A dog cannot be trained without a master. A song cannot be sung when there's no one there  to sing. The world is always flat in our dreams and nothing is ever what it seams. In the end , the...

    All of our 'children' are fluffy

    As I lay here & think,

    My head feels in sync With what you ask? Oh, nothing. Just a dream. Of actually feeling. A dream of really living. Where I don't have scars & where no ones ever hurt me. That, Is what I think.

    We All Have Our Demons

    We can't forget our past no matter how hard we try. But the tears we cry ,can wash away the demons inside. It doesn't take much for our past to return. A sound or a song, and those memories burn. I wish we could forget the thoughts that haunt our soul. So we could look forward...
